Care Philosophy

Hello!  My name is Joy Blais and I am a health care provider with a passion for serving others.  I want to help you feel your best and reach your health goals as quickly as possible so you can get back to enjoying your life.  

I treat each person with compassion and care and take the time to listen to all your concerns.  Whether you are looking for relief from aches and pains, or treatment for an illness or health condition, I can help.

If you want to reduce or eliminate your dependence on pain medication by treating the source of the problem, not just the symptoms, you've come to the right place!

Oriental Medicine is a form of health care that has been used successfully for thousands of years.  It can prevent as well as heal disease in the body, mind, and spirit.  Receiving acupuncture is not only safe and effective, but relaxing as well!  

The treatment style I use is very gentle and tailored to each patient's needs.  I incorporate several different techniques, including acupuncture, medical massage, herbal medicine, and more, to create an individualized treatment that will yield maximum results.

I treat a variety of conditions and specialize in pain relief - both acute and chronic including: auto accident recovery; post surgical pain; muscle and joint pain; headaches; neck, back, sciatic, shoulder, spine, and limb pain.  In addition, I also treat stress induced illness, digestive disorders, anxiety & depression, and many other conditions that effect the respiratory, immune, endocrine, circulatory, and musculoskeletal systems.

Please feel free to contact me to find out if my services are right for you.  I look forward to working with you!
