Welcome!Hi and welcome to Balance With Joy. My name is Joy Ann King and I hope to bring balance to your life through my training in Reiki, EFT and years of spiritual research and growth. My intention is to bring you into a place of happiness and joy, free from physical and emotional pain caused by energy imbalance.
These energy misalignments can prevent you from reaching your personal potential by leaving you feeling unmotivated, depressed and bored. Beyond that, it can lead to serious physical health conditions, which only add to the problem.
But the good news for you is that you found me. And now help is just a phone call or email away. It is my sincere desire to help you reach your full potential in all areas of your life.
Energy Medicine is a term used for holistic healing therapies focused on manipulating the "life force" energy in your body to bring about balance, health and wellness. There are many different energy-based modalities that involve practitioners using hands-on techniques to rebalance energy. Other therapies involve non-touch or distant treatments. Specific areas targeted in these treatments are the aura, meridian points, and chakra centers. But other areas are treated for physical ailments as well.
Since I was a little girl, I remember hearing people say, “You are what you eat”. I never really paid much attention to it. I ate because I was hungry. I ate what I ate because it was what my Mom put in front of me. I was far more interested in playing with my friends in the neighborhood after school, not worrying about how healthy my next meal was going to be. As I got older and became a parent I realized that perhaps there was more to food than I was giving credit to. I started … [Read More...]
I eventually had the surgery and was blessed with surgeons who were willing to take a chance on me. They removed my large intestine but performed a complicated series of surgeries that would mean I wasn’t stuck with a colostomy bag for the rest of my life. The experimental surgery was a huge success and after six months of physical therapy I was able to go back to work. But going through a life threatening experience makes you think. You think about your life in a completely different … [Read More...]
I first heard about the power of thought when I was a in my early twenties. I read a few books that talked about using mental pictures to create a better life. Visualization was new to me and I enjoyed it, but as the single mother of an infant there wasn’t much time to focus on what seemed like a luxury. I was barely surviving so I felt like my time was better spent working and earning a living so I could support my young son. I worked 50 to 60 hours a week trying to make a better life … [Read More...]
Now that I've been a holistic healer for several years, I thought I would share a few simple healing techniques that help ease stress and bring you back into balance. Stress is a leading cause of dis-ease. Dis-ease is literally your inability to allow your body's natural state of well-being. When you complain or worry, you unknowingly stop the flow of wellness. The next time you find yourself complaining about a situation, stop yourself and ask if the situation is worth losing your … [Read More...]

A lot of people ask me why/how I got into doing healing work. It’s a fair question with a long and complicated answer. It’s been an emotional but eventually very profound and satisfying road. Back in the early 1990’s I was a busy executive trying to balance work with family. At this time, a close family relative was struggling and by the time he was eight we started noticing signs of depression (yes, at the age of eight!). Doctors were convinced it was ADD or some other label they … [Read More...]
