"The learning experience with Joyessence was an
incredibly fulfilling experience from beginning to end. What
I learned in modules 1 and 2 gave me the confidence to work
with others in the health care profession. I travelled to
Ontario for the bodywork course and after a few days of giving
and receiving the massage I knew that it was essential for
me to make the bodywork a part of my practice and lifestyle.
I love giving this massage because I feel rejuvenated and
calm after giving it. Aromatherapy has become a passion and
a lifelong educational journey that was inspired by Joy and
her informative course. Thank you Joy!"
