Massage and Yoga Therapy
"Joy Cleaver has been helping me with Yoga. When I started with her I had never attempted Yoga. I am 75 years of age and wanted to see how my body would respond. I have made very satisfying progress. I highly recommend this class to anyone needing modifications. It is very beneficial and I already feel an amazing stability in balance. As an aside, she really knows how to teach and support learning . She also gives an amazing massage, have been with her 5 years. Thanks for all you do, Joy."
"I have been seeing Joy for close to 6 years now and can't say enough. I look forward to my massage every time and walk away relaxed and half asleep. I also have been practicing yoga with Joy for 4 years and she has helped me so much with my back pain and helping me be in tune with my body. "
"I was a bit hesitant to try therapeutic massage, but I was getting very frustrated with the aches and pains that I was having and decided to go for it. Joy was very welcoming and understanding when I explained that it was my first massage. She explained the process and made sure I was comfortable through every step. I have already recommended Joy to a colleague of mine, and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone."
"I was hesitant to try massage for some sports injuries before 1st seeing Joy at Gaealana. I have been back many times since - no need to look around! She has helped ease my pain associated with plantar fasciitis, strained muscles, sore back and a dislocated shoulder (I'm a clumsy runner). Each visit, she checks in with me on my current state, and by the time I leave, I'm relaxed and stress free with the bonus of unclenched muscles! I recommend Joy to anyone seeking a great massage."
"Amazing as always. Worked only my lower body which I really needed some deep tissue and she relieved both issues on my hamstrings "
"I have seen Joy for the last 4 years, and I cant be grateful for the services. I run roughly 30-40 miles a week, and without deep tissue work on my hamstring, quads, and plantar fascia, I would not be able to run or last."
"I had the pleasure of receiving bodywork from Joy, and I couldn't be more pleased. Wonderful work from a wonderful person. Looking forward to my next session!"
"After auto accident l was having chest pain & back pain. I was a little nervous about the massage but she was great. She listens. I have been going to her for 5 years. "
"The massage I had with Joy was wonderful. She is very tuned in to areas you want her to focus on and thoroughly gets in there. My neck and shoulders get particularly messed up and I walk out of the massage noticing an immediate improvement. Totally recommend!"
"Had a Thai massage with Joy. Her technique was wonderful and she really made me feel comfortable. She also had a lot of helpful tips for me to try at home (yoga poses to aid in getting better sleep, etc). Can't wait to go back. The room is very calming too. "
"Joy was recommended by my daughter. I have been experiencing her gentle ways for approximately three years. I am older and often have need for a rejuvenating massage. Truly have found the right match with Joy. I highly recommend her. She is very experienced."
"Joy came highly recommended from a coworker, and I was not disappointed. She was very warm and welcoming, and the space at Gaealana is a comfortable and inviting. Joy helped me recover from a neck tweak, and would recommend her to anyone. I plan on returning soon!"
"Joy was great. I've never had a full massage before, and she did a good job explaining the whole process, and checking in with me throughout. The massage itself was also really good. i left feeling relaxed and less right through my back and neck. Thanks!"
"I have always had an amazing experience. Joy is a life saver! I am so glad to have found her and this business. I am a satisfied customer of nearly 5 years now. "
"Joy is just great! She takes the time to listen to your needs and no matter how long she spent taking she still gives the full massage and takes the time to make sure you are comfortable with the pressure she puts on your body or the temperature in the bed. She is just great !!"
"I have had several massages from Joy and they have all been wonderful. She also does hot towels on the feet at the end-yum! Also the on-line booking is fast and efficient us she takes health insurance. Highly recommended!"
"Joy is a joy! I find her to be professional and very knowledgeable with regard to massage. She communicates as needed during the therapy and helps to relax the body and mind. Thanks and I do recommend her. "
"I have been seeing Joy for massage for the last 6 months. She is great, flexible and as an athlete/runner/soccer player I need deep tissue to release the stress on my quads, hams, peroneal muscle and plantar fascia. She is great and she has helped me recover so much. I recommend her to anyone."
"I met Joy when I was pregnant and was getting prenatal massages. I have continued to see Joy regularly for the 2 1/2 years and our relationship has also evolved to include private yoga sessions which I equally enjoy. I couldn't recommend Joy enough!"
"My husband gave my a gift certificate back in February that I used yesterday for a most lovely and magical 90 minute massage with Joy. I really felt transported to a place of calm and peace. Today my body feels relaxed and at ease. Joy is wonderfully intuitive, attentive, communicative and professional. "
"I have been massaged by Joy 3 times, and have 2 more in my package. She is WONDERFUL! She's very responsive and asks about pressure to be sure that you're getting what you need from the massage (whether it be relaxation or deep-tissue work). From soft to hard pressure, her massages are fantastic and always leave me feeling much better than before. Plus, she's just a very lovely person."
