In 1989, Nina Joy landed at Mueller College of Holistic Studies in San Diego, California after having been catapulted from a traumatic personal experience. In search of a way to address her trauma and pushed forward by a strong desire to find ways of healing, for herself and for others, she became committed to bodywork.
Her initial training taught her the importance of shifting reactions, developing new perspectives and re calibrating emotions in order to heal. Later, what she learned facilitated her understanding of sacred spaces for the continuation of her own healing and recovery, and for her clients who came in search of similar ways and with similar needs. That was just the beginning of her professional career.
Since then, Nina has become a Practitioner of Ortho-Bionomy, and is currently in the teacher training program. She is an Integrated Energy Therapist. She has completed the Upledger CranioSacral Curriculum and is soon to be a Certified CranioSacral Therapist. She is a Barral Institute Visceral Manipulation student, with completion of the core program and is continuing with this curriculum.
Nina has found these modalities to be complementary to one another, providing a highly beneficial approach to assisting the body in a Safe, Gentle and Effective Manner— physically and emotionally.
Most recently, over the past 4 years, Nina has been working side by side with Luc J Chabot, an Advanced Osteopathic Manual Therapist and “Hands-On” Medical Intuit. Their work together provides her as an apprentice, continued hands-on learning in greater depth, with each new patient she assists.
Along with more than 1000 hours of study in various bodywork modalities and over 800 hours of Ortho-Bionomy studies, Nina Joy also has over 20 years of practical experience. Nina Joy completes over 100 Continuing Education Hours on a yearly basis.
Having come full-circle through her commitment to learning, Nina has become the antidote to pain, injury and life-long stress as an acutely sensitive practitioner who addresses all the ailments that derive from these conditions.
