PlanetJoy Massage Client Feedback 



Allison Sprouse, 45

I trust Joy because she does great work and truly cares about her clients’ health.

PlanetJoy is a total body relaxation experience. It’s quiet and soothing. Pressure is always perfect and if there are trouble areas, Joy focuses on them. 
Bonus: My migraines are gone!


A monthly massage gives me something to look forward to and it helps me stay on top of health concerns before they happen. 


Joy can tell when something is wrong with my body that I wasn’t aware of! True story. She discovered I needed adjusting when I never knew anything was wrong. I went to my chiro and she was spot-on!



Jacob Graham, 35

Highlights of a PlanetJoy massage: the attention she pays to my issues, the care she takes, the tenderness and responsiveness to my body. She reads it well.

I’ve had relatively extensive massage experience, but this is my favorite. Joy is not in any way overbearing. She is considerate, quiet, and I get the sense that it’s a deep practice for her.

What has pleasantly surprised me? Just how relaxed I feel when I leave.



Deb Kirtland, 52

Joy relieved some tension/knots/pain that my chiropractor could not – and the relief was quick and fairly permanent.  I say “fairly permanent” because it’s my life style that makes me have flare-ups. 

What concerns or worries have been taken care of?  Neck pain, shoulder and upper back tension is less overall.  Also, being able to sign up for packages and pay in installments creates less stress about affordablility.

What has pleasantly surprised me?  How relaxed I am on the table.  I thought I would be uncomfortable with having someone massage me, but I don’t because of PlanetJoy’s environment and JOY!



Bevin Yowell, proudly almost 40!

Did you have any objections or skepticism about signing up for massage package? At first, yes. I was concerned about $ & Time. 

What are some highlights of the experience? Pricing options are awesome and Joy’s massage skills are the best that I’ve experienced. 

What concerns or worries have been taken care of? $ and time actually worked out well! 

What has pleasantly surprised me? I find it easy to make the time. 

What is most satisfying about the experience? I feel amazing and I’m more in tune with my body and how my body holds stress. 

 

Asechiah, age 42

Joy was recommended to me by several people. The experience has been great, and I absolutely trust her skills and knowledge.

It’s a very soothing experience. Joy is very easy to communicate with, taking in account the unique set of health issues I’ve had.

Joy has helped me make serious strides in the past year, I’m very thankful. Pain has been much more manageable. See the light at the end of the tunnel.

What has pleasantly surprised me? Sense of energy has been returning, overall body balance is much improved 
What is most satisfying about the experience? It’s good to have someone you can see eye to eye with regarding your health and the necessary steps it takes to get there. Joy is very encouraging.

Savanna’s Experience

Pregnancy Massage Testimonial (updated!)

I’m reposting my friend Savanna’s pregnancy massage testimonial.

She was the first client I had the privilege of working on throughout her ENTIRE pregnancy.

Together, Savanna and I had a lot of fun practicing and perfecting the most amazing pregnancy massage experience.

—————————————-
Name: Savanna

Age: 27

Did you have any objections or skepticism about pregnancy massage?

“I actually was a little bit skeptical.

While I am a big fan of massage, I was skeptical about whether or not I could still enjoy it if I couldn’t lay on my back or stomach.

I wasn’t sure exactly how it would work or if I would just have to lay on my side the whole time.

Mainly I think I just didn’t know exactly what to expect so I was skeptical about whether or not it would be as comfortable or relaxing as a regular massage.

What were some of your concerns or worries?

“I was mainly worried or concerned at the beginning about whether or not it was completely safe for the baby.

I had read some mixed reviews online about the safety especially for the first trimester.

I had also read that sometimes massage made morning sickness worse.

(*Special note: the reason massage can have a bad rep for first trimester is that the first trimester is a very sensitive time and many women do not end up carrying to term. When something happens and the pregnancy is terminated, the massage is not a direct cause, but all the pain from losing the baby can often lead women to search for a cause. Because of this it’s important to work lightly and check in a LOT with the woman to make sure she feels comfortable, healthy, and safe.

Also, in the case of losing a baby, massage is excellent for mental health and emotional healing.)

What were you hoping would happen?

“I was hoping that my skepticism and/or worries would be for no reason and that I would enjoy pregnancy massage as much if not more than regular massage.”

Why did you choose to come to me (instead of someone else)? What made you trust me?

“I had already had good experiences with your massages so that helped.

Also I know that you are always reading and researching so I knew that you would be well versed in what was safe and unsafe for both me and the baby.

Plus knowing that you went to the effort to take the pre-natal class was reassuring as well.

But even without the prenatal class I was confident that you would do your homework and look into what was and wasn’t safe for pregnancy so that was reassuring.”

What can other people expect? Juicy details, please! What were some highlights of the experience?

“Pregnancy massage is obviously somewhat different than a regular massage, but it is also the same in many ways.

With the physical changes that pregnancy brings come a lot of aches and pains, and you need a relaxing massage more than ever.

Despite what I originally had thought, the massages can be just as relaxing as a regular massage, they are just a little different.

The “cloud” was also very nice.” (*A special combination concoction of pillows to prop you up so you can have your head, neck, arms, and feet worked on. Feels like floating on a cloud….) 

“Because I was propped up on pillows I rarely felt nauseous or lightheaded.

When I did I always was able to be adjusted in a way that alleviated that feeling.

It was also helpful that you were very open minded and always willing to make little adjustments as we went to make sure that I was always comfortable.”

What concerns or worries were taken care of?

“I was reassured after talking to one of our midwives who actually said not only is it safe but that they recommend massage and/or chiropractic care.

I was also reassured that you took the prenatal massage class so I was very confident that you would know what was and was not recommended during pregnancy.

I also appreciated that you were open to trying different things and I always felt comfortable letting you know if we needed to adjust my position, if I needed another pillow, etc.”

What was different about this experience compared to regular massages?

“The most obvious is that you can’t lay on your stomach or your back.  Other than that the experience as surprisingly similar.

The added stretches and the tummy massage is an extra perk.

What pleasantly surprised you?

“I was surprised that despite having a different position for the massage it was really just as relaxing as a regular massage.

What was most satisfying about the experience?

“Massages were great in helping relieve the aches and pains of pregnancy, as well as relieving the tension from stress and anxiety that comes with pregnancy.

It was nice to take an hour a month (or sometimes a couple of hours a month) to relax.”

Savanna’s baby, Scarlett is completely wonderful. The first time I ever held her, I massaged her head and she went right to sleep. We’ve got a connection :)

What makes massage worth the time and money?

image

I asked my clients: “What makes massage worth the time and money?”

Allison

“I feel amazing after a massage. I get a quick nap in and the rest of my evening is peaceful. My headaches have decreased and I have more energy as well.

Alyssa:

Relief from chronic pain is worth any amount. Spending time having it lessened is time not spent suffering from it.”

image

Ros:

“It’s dedicated self-care time, which we don’t get enough of!”

Bevin

“Joy has been the best massage therapist that I’ve been to so far. She uses essential oils and takes uses so many techniques to work on my body. So, I feel like I have a tailored massage, just for me!! I also enjoy the discounts that Joy gives with signing up for a year, this makes it totally worth it and I have no guilty feelings on spending the money for my well being.

image

Erika:

“I get headaches pretty regularly and massage has helped manage those. Plus, it’s a good reminder to drink enough water and pay attention to what my body is telling me. I’m working to establish healthy habits for my life.”

Vanessa

Self-care is one of those things that people often forget about or don’t think about, but it is important. It’s good to remember that self-care is important, which I think makes massage worth the time and money. It’s not hard to justify when you think about how necessary it is to take care of yourself. Everybody is stressed out all the time. That’s no way to live! So it’s easy to start taking small steps in changing that. (i.e. getting massages regularly, drinking tea instead of coffee, etc.)”

image

Dan:

“How it makes me feel better both physically and mentally. It helps the physical stuff a lot, but also forces me to relax and pay attention to what my body is doing which is a great mental break too.”

My mom, Lynne:

“I love my massage therapist! I need to take care of myself. It’s my chance to practice breathing deeply.”

Savanna’s Testimonial: Pregnancy Massage on PlanetJoy

Savanna has been coming to me for a couple of years now and she’s due July 31st. Before she got crazy busy with her new baby, I wanted to ask her some questions about her experience with pregnancy massage.

As soon as Savanna told me she’d found out that she was pregnant, back in February, I decided to take a prenatal and postpartum massage course. The class was a wonderful experience (I got to work on a woman the day before she was induced!)

Together, Savanna and I have had a lot of fun practicing and perfecting the most amazing pregnancy massage experience.

(*Savanna, it’s been an honor working on you throughout your pregnancy. Because I’ve worked on you every month it’s been so cool to watch your baby grow.
Thank you for being patient while I figured everything out. I know you said it felt good even the first few times when I was a little unsteady with all the techniques.
I’ve really enjoyed getting to know you better. AND it was SO COOL to be one of the very FIRST people to hear about your pregnancy!! (Even before your parents, wow.)
I can’t wait to meet your little baby and get to know her :) 

So, what’s so great about Collage Parties?

image

I found it was easy to construct a collage. It was almost effortless and something meaningful happened!
-Anne Buzzeli

Great reasons to check out collage parties: 

⊙You are curious about the process

⊙You want to be creative in a social setting

Theres no pressure to be “artistic”– you just need to be able to use scissors and a glue stick!

⊙You love to create but have just needed to find some time to put your ideas together

⊙You want to focus. Collage is a perfect way to do inner work– it’s a form of art therapy.

⊙You are looking for a great way to explore your goals more deeply.

Collage is a way of slipping past the censor and accessing the unconscious.

image

What do people love most about the experience?

⊙peaceful creativity

⊙the adventure of being with other women and enjoying the experience together

I enjoyed the camaraderie of fellow seekers, and the stories we all told even though we were relative strangers. By being her lovely self, Joy created safety and a sense of fun, play, and exploration which was super helpful for me; I was able to relax and get the most out of the collage process.

And of course, I enjoyed seeing the collage take shape, finishing it, and then working through the reflection process. It was a surprising result.
-Lisa O’Shea

image

I liked being creative and socializing. Plus, I enjoyed seeing how well planned out it was.
-Rachel Golden

image

What is the best thing you get out of coming to a collage party?

⊙A chance to really hone in on your goals.

⊙The excitement of seeing seemingly random pictures lay out a theme

“There’s a change comin’. 

……

It involves Brussels sprouts.”

-Susanne Leahy, analyzing her collage

image

The collage itself!

I’ve hung it up in my work room next to where I do a lot of writing, and it inspires me and intrigues me every day.
-Lisa O’Shea

image

A finished product that reminds me that I “can do” and that my hopes have not yet been snuffed out!
-Lynne Boardman

image

It will surprise you how easy the collage making process is!

I was surprised how many decisions I made so effortlessly. I usually belabor and second guess small and large decisions!
-Lynne Boardman

image

When it came time to glue the clippings into a collage, my hands flew around, and I made decisions that I wasn’t expecting. When it was done, I stood back and marveled. The picture I’d created spoke to me in the poetry of images and contrasts I hadn’t anticipated.
-Lisa O’Shea

image
****************************************
I hold collage parties often (almost every month) The goal setting parties I hold quarterly so you can come and boost your goals, meet new people, and feel accountable to yourself.

Collage is great because you can do them all the time and each one will be totally different. You’re thinking of something different, looking at different magazines, and putting your images together in different ways.

A regular habit of creating fulfills a need to express what’s beautiful and “right.”
-Lynne Boardman

***************************************
I post the events on my facebook page so make sure to follow me if you’re interested in coming to one.

You can also email me at joyboardman@gmail.com and let me know you’re interested in attending one.
I even hold one-on-one parties which are like mini (and fun) therapy sessions so email me if you would like to schedule one! 
image

I loved meeting new people and laughing so much. It helped me focus on the positive aspects of my life, and I really like that my goals are literally in my face (on my fridge) every day as a reminder.

PlanetJoy: Year of Massage {client feedback}

ALLISON

What do you personally get out of the Year of Massage?

I have something to look forward to each month. It’s a time set aside just for me. 

Why do you recommend YOM?

Awesome stress relief and relaxation. If you book in advance, you’re giving an amazing gift to yourself each month.

What would make YOM even better?

I’m thrilled with it as it is. The price is affordable and I love the friendship I’ve developed with you!

Absolute favorite part of YOM:

Flexible scheduling and willing to work around zany events in my life without batting an eye.

image

CINDY

I like committing to a year& the payment plan.

I love coming for my monthly massage because I know I’m gonna get healing in many ways.

I would pay full price but grateful I don’t have to.

I love reading your articles& learning from you.

I love your pink hair!!

image

ROS

What do you personally get out of the Year of Massage? ((What is/are the main impact(s) it has on your life?))

Scheduling regular massages gives me a time each month devoted exclusively to making me feel AWESOME.

It reminds me that it’s important every once in a while to do things that aren’t goal-oriented, but are really just me-oriented.

I find that if I just schedule massages when I feel like I need one, I don’t have as many as I should, and it’s too easy to talk myself out of them.

Signing up for a whole year of massage bakes this important self-focused activity into my routine. 

Why do you recommend YOM? 

It’s important to have ME-time, and to intentionally show yourself some self-love. It’s a terrific self-present :). 

Absolute favorite part:

I love the heated table, the scented oils on the headrest, and the great company! 

image

SUZANNE
I benefit from massage in the following ways: 

A. I am generally touch- deprived, so this gives me a chance to experience touch. 

B.  My muscles smile when I have massage– and for several days afterward.

C. It’s a time of complete disconnection from the frenzy of life.

D. I love Joy– her spirit lifts me up!!

I’d recommend it to anyone (and I have!) who likes to relax.

image

LINDA

What do you personally get out of the Year of Massage? ((What is/are the main impact(s) it has on your life?))

My body is so much more relaxed and I’m more aware of my body tensing up throughout my days, especially during stressful moments.  It very well knows when it’s time to visit Planet Joy each month to rediscover, and once again release, my inner fluidity. 

The chronic pain I deal with from arthritis, fibro, etc. is lessened now, also. 

More purposeful relaxation and less pain.  Along with some of the best discussions ever. 

Priceless!

WHY do you recommend YOM?

I’ve not tried a wide variety of massage therapists, but from the few I have visited, Joy’s has been the most gentle, yet wholly effective for my body’s specific needs. 

There’s also a kindred spirit connection that makes it feel like I’ve known her forever, and peeps like that are definitely amongst of the cream of the crop, in my opinion.  :o)

What’s your favorite part of YOM?

You go above and beyond to accommodate, you are understanding when appts. need changed or cancelled, you send reminders, and then often remind us to check the reminders (lol), you nurture our bodies and spirits, you keep us laughing and creative, you provide such a warm and inviting space within your home that is so incredibly comfortable, AND you remind us to drink plenty of water.  :o) 

You take such good care of your space kittens and we appreciate you, big time!!!!

Thanks for all you do to help us maintain wellness and blissipline in our lives.  We love life on Planet Joy!!!

SAVANNA

It is so nice to just take an hour a month for myself. I also just feel a lot better. I tend to have less upper back/neck/shoulder pain and fewer headaches.

I would definitely recommend this to friends. It is very affordable, much more so than many of our local spas, etc. While it is a bit of a financial investment I have found that it is so worth it.

Testimonial Time: Why My Clients Love 90-Minute Massages

I asked my adorable, wonderful clients why THEY love their 90-minute massage sessions with me. Here’s what they had to say.

image

Anne:
“The extra 30 minutes makes a huge difference.

It seems that it takes my body and mind 60 minutes to completely let go.

The extra 30 allows my body to experience that much more relaxation and healing while all stress is gone.”

image

LeeAnn:
“I tried it because: if 60 was so great, 90 must be even better!

Makes a big difference – since starting them I haven’t experienced the pinched nerve in my neck that usually occurs every couple of months!

I would DEFINITELY recommend trying a 90 minute massage – it allows extra time to be spent on areas that need extra attention, plus it’s 30 extra minutes of JOY!”

image

Lynne:
“There’s nothing like a 90-minute refreshing. Joy is especially suited for thorough massage. I like how she gives a total experience.

I schedule one every month with her year of massage.

Time to really relax and renew.”

image

Allison:
“I’d never had a 90 minute massage before and thought I’d treat myself to one.

What I loved about it was that I got to enjoy a full body massage, & actually have time to also work on problem areas a little more. 

If you’re having pain in a particular area and need some attention given to it, a 90 minute massage is the best way to do that.

It also allows for a longer relaxation period.

I LOVE them!”

So much MORE than a collage party!

“I know I said it a bunch of times, but I still want to say ‘thank you’ once again for the collage party and for your insightful prompts on the making of the collages. As I said, I’ve not done anything that was free-flowingingly (I make up words sometimes) creative in many years. It was a great experience for me on so many levels.

So again, THANK YOU! And I do plan to attend more sessions to continue learning to allow myself to expand into more spontaneity and creativity.”

-Jen

20140108-202338.jpgJen with one of the wonderful collages she created.

Saturday was kind of life-changing for me when I saw how much these collage sessions can mean to other people.

What an incredible blessing it was to discover that I can do these fun collage parties and actually HELP people.

Here I’d initially thought they would just be good fun….I cannot express how excited I am to be entering the realm of art therapy.

20140108-202347.jpg
Of course, it is still whole bunches of pure fun, too.

I just feel in my bones that this is going to become an integral part of what I do.

I’d been trying and trying to fit massages and collages together (delighted at first to simply discover that they rhyme!)

Then the other night TJ said that my art “makes people feel good in their brains and their hearts” which made me realize that every part of my business touches people on some therapeutic level.

Even my squishy, awkward animals! They are therapeutically squishy to hold.

My fizzies make baths and showers therapeutic, too….

It’s so exciting to be continuously discovering my life path and how EVERYTHING fits together!!

20140108-202353.jpgI really hope you can come to one of the parties.

In January we are setting our intentions for the coming year.

It’s a very powerful thing to make your goals visual!

I will provide all of the materials (*if you want to bring extra magazines, you’re welcome to!)

It’s totally relaxed: no-stress!

Find out more all about the collage parties here.
20140108-202400.jpgStay tuned on Facebook for February dates!
The prompts for February will be:

Self-esteem, radical self-love& acceptance, what love means to you, and love for others.

I’ll give the option to make valentines for the women’s shelter in Staunton, the senior citizens center, etc.

((All collages above, except Jen's of course, were made by me: Joy Boardman))

A Joyful Year of Massage: Client Testimonials

"Signing up for a year of massages forced me to take time out of my busy schedule to focus on myself, at least one hour a month. Massage added another dimension to wellness by allowing me to relax and address the physical stress on my body. I reaped the benefits of more relaxed muscles while also learning about homeopathic remedies. I also gained a great friend!"
-LeeAnn20131226-121514.jpg

“Sign up for a year of massage not just for your benefit but for your loved ones as well…massage makes the world a happier place…

Also it keeps the body healthier,a reg.massage has helped me stay away from sinus infections. Used to get 3/4 infections a year and now I can’t remember when I’ve had one….massage helps you both mind and body.”
-Candi

20131226-204912.jpg

“My daughter really connects with her clients. She loves them and cares for them.

Her massages are gentle yet firm and effective. I’ve had excellent incentive to schedule and take advantage of her 90-minute treatments, which are heavenly.
I’ve committed to a year of massage to help her as well as myself.

Joy’s atmosphere is relaxing with aromatherapy and privacy. She knows her anatomy and holistic research. I trust her for body, mind and spirit. Her package deals make the commitment reasonable and regular scheduling has improved my stress relief and attitude.

Bravo! Well done! 100 stars! Do it!”
-Lynne (my momma, yay!)20131226-205544.jpg

“Joy provides a relaxing environment and knows her stuff in terms of technique. Most importantly for me, she is serious about massage as a personal therapeutic process – she listens to what I have to say about what is bothering me at the start of each session, and adapts what she’s doing to match. She’s great at this and it’s extremely helpful!”
-Dan
20131226-210002.jpg

“Getting a massage from Joy not only is relaxing, but she genuinely cares about her clients’ well-being. She makes it easy to forget the stresses of life. When I visit Joy, I feel like I’m visiting not only a massage therapist, but a good friend as well!”
-Allison20131226-220504.jpg

“I scheduled a monthly massage with Joy and can’t tell you how delighted I am! I look forward to having her come to my home every month, set up her very comfortable table and turn on “ocean sounds” for relaxation. I have asked her to concentrate on my neck and shoulders which she has discovered is in much need of attention!

I highly recommend Joy for a wonderful experience in the personal surroundings of your own home.”
-Janie20131227-083259.jpg

“My massage from Joy has become the highlight of my month. I look so forward to my massage that it becomes a way to push through busy days and difficult tasks. I tell myself, “Get through this and you will be one step closer to your special hour!” My body knows when it’s time for my massage, too. It tells me!

Joy has the kind of wonderfully intuitive touch that reads what your body needs. I would never give up my year of massage! I love it! I highly recommend the year of massage to anyone considering!”
-Melissa20131227-181821.jpg

“As a fitness professional, I understand the importance of taking care of our bodies.

As a single, working mother of two teen girls, I understand the importance of taking care of our peace of mind.

As a woman with diverse life experience, I understand the importance of taking care of our spiritual health.

MIND, BODY, SPIRIT….all of these are nurtured through massage. As a certified Personal Trainer, I counsel my clients on the importance of massage for relaxation, detoxification, myofascial release, workout recovery – overall general health. There is no substitute for the investment in our health to take care of our body. How you FEEL physically affects you every moment of every day.

And why do I recommend Joy Boardman to my clients? First of all, I have been going to Joy for massage for a few years and her massages are WONDERFUL!! She lives up to her name…she is a Joy! A beautiful and kind young woman!

Secondly, I love that she makes massage affordable by providing it in her home…the ambiance of her massage room is warm and cozy. She always does some sort of aromatherapy and relaxing music. It is my choice to chat during the massage or rest in silence as my body melts on the table! Joy takes special care to offer your preference of light massage, deeper tissue work, or a combination of techniques.

Finally, I feel refreshed, rejuvenated, and pampered after massage. The day after my massage, by body looks beautiful, as my muscles are elongated and I feel the benefits 100% in my body. (can I say that massage makes you look better naked?)

I would encourage you to invest in a year of massage with Joy…she is spectacular and her massages will make you feel awesome to the core!!”
