During the Covid-19 Virus shutdown, I found myself alone 99% of the time and thought it would have been easy to slip back into deep depression, however, as I listened to Karyn’s music, the feelings of sorrow and loneliness were dispelled.
Carol: It sounds like a wonderful modality. You’ve incorporated Joy Coaching® into your varying therapies that combine or individually help one to release, relax and rejuvenate. Is that correct?
Dorothy: Yes, I do. My goal is to help clients regain peace, joy, and relaxation by using a variety of therapies. I am a Certified Regional “Joy Coach”, Certified Emotion Code practitioner, Certified Foot Zone practitioner, Symphony of the Cells and most recently, I am studying to be Certified in Ho’oponopono (an ancient Hawaiian system for forgiveness and healing).
Depending on the needs of the client, I will integrate the Emotion Code with Joy Coaching®. While The Emotion Code removes imbalances so the body can heal, The Healer’s Touch Method ™ (part of the Joy Coaching® ) fills that healing space with high vibration, happy emotions (through all 5 senses), raising the body up to a higher level and supporting the body through its healing journey. When I muscle test clients as to what percentage of healing is accomplished by incorporating both therapies, the answer was a startling 85%!! Of course, it depends on the individual client and each session is unique.
Foot Zone Therapy, similar to reflexology, addresses the physical, emotional, and mental parts of the body by using specific areas (nerves) on the feet called zones. While Foot Zoning does not claim to ‘heal’ any disease or problem, it does help the body return to its original blueprint or natural healthy state. I have found that my clients leave feeling less stressed, more relaxed, and often fall asleep during the session.
Carol: Have you found profound changes in your clients with your work?
Dorothy: In my practice, as a “Joy Coach” or a Relaxation Therapist, I offer emotional support to comfort a broken heart, release stress, grief, anxiety, and sadness by gently changing deep pressed emotions into Joy; by using the five senses to create a nurturing peaceful session that recreates positive memories and helps one to connect with their Divine Mission and purpose. Joy Coaching® will help one get rid of limiting negative emotional trash that does not serve them.
When I first started working with a young mother with three children, she had no confidence in herself, lots of anxiety, felt “hopelessly” alone because she had recently relocated to AZ, had anxiety about her children, and regarded herself as not being very important to her children or husband. During the sessions, we were able to identify and release major areas of anxiety and emotional baggage. Instead of being insecure, she became confident not only in herself, but also in her ability to parent her children effectively. She made commitments to make some healthy changes to her lifestyle and to nurture herself daily.
Another woman, after several months of Joy Coaching®, was able to gain confidence and make major steps in starting her own business. We were able to identify the emotions and insecurities from her childhood that kept her from achieving her lifelong goals.
Carol: Great success stories. Thank you. Dorothy, how has Joy Coaching® America benefited your life personally and/or professionally?
Dorothy: Joy Coaching® America has had a profound effect on my life personally, as it has helped me come to terms with my own grief and heartache. The music has helped me have a sense of peace, knowing that a loving Heavenly Father is there to comfort and guide me. Professionally, Joy Coaching® America opened a new door for me and a way to share my compassion and love to all and to help each person through their own journey.
Carol: How do you feel the Joy Coaching® America Program, as it focuses on reducing stress, through deep relaxation, accessing the 5 senses, could be beneficial in anyone’s life?
Dorothy: The Joy Coaching® Program can take anyone that is open to a place of deep relaxation by using the five senses from the youngest child to senior citizens. We all need comfort and understanding. My friends’ young children beg me to bring the lullabies and oils to tuck them in at night because it makes them feel “special and loved.” A client in his mid-seventies told me “Everyone needs this!”
Carol: Is learning to be a “Joy Coach” in any way difficult? I would think not as it seems such a unique modality.
Dorothy: Joy Coaching® is easy to learn, but in giving a session, you need to rely on your own intuition and muscle testing to determine what the client may need. That’s the difficult part – you must be in tune with the client.
Carol: Are sessions long?
Dorothy: The Joy Coaching® sessions are usually about 60 to 90 minutes long.
Carol: Can sessions be done remotely?
Dorothy: Yes, the Joy Coaching® and The Emotion Code sessions can be done remotely. I have even done Foot Zone therapy remotely as well.
Carol: Why does the world need Joy Coaching® now?
Dorothy: The world needs love and understanding now more than ever. People have been isolated “quarantined” from normal interaction with peers and/or with family members and that is producing perhaps additional stressors and problems. Research has revealed that almost 50% of adults are experiencing depression from the recent events.
“Nearly half of Americans report the coronavirus crisis is harming their mental health, according to a Kaiser Family Foundation poll. A federal emergency hotline for people in emotional distress registered a more than 1,000 percent increase in April compared with the same time last year. Last month, roughly 20,000 people texted that hotline, run by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.”
I recently went over to a friend’s house, her son (a father to 7 young children) made a comment that really concerned me. “I don’t even know why I am on the planet anymore. How can I support my family with no job! It’s to the point that I don’t really care anymore of what happens.”
Joy Coaching® can help in many ways. Here are just a few ways how a Relaxation Session can help: (Karyn Lynn Grant, LMT of Joy Coaching® America)
