Here’s what my clients have to say…


I came to Joyce for help after a stress fracture ended my dream of running the Boston Marathon in 2015 and an orthopedist said he didn’t think that more long distance running was in my future.  Joyce didn’t believe a word of it.  She was convince that I could run the Marathon and she was right!  Working with her as I trained for it this year was an amazing experience.  She focused on my entire body, especially the areas that weren’t working so well.  At each step along the way, she figured out how to make the aches and pains recede.  She helped build up my strength and endurance and improve my body awareness through postural training and a variety of mobility drills.  All this got me to the point where I had the stamina to enjoy (and have a little kick) the last few miles of the marathon, something which I never would have believed possible!  I am so grateful to her for her insights and thoughtful way she approached my particular challenges.  I know that I will run better from now on because of her!  Liz H., 2016 Boston Marathon finisher, bib #30707

I’ve worked with Joyce for over 3 years now.  When we first started working together, my primary goal was my right hip issue that was impacting on my squash game and the long hikes that enjoy doing.  I ended up having my hip replaced and got back to training with Joyce 3 weeks later.   Despite having the surgery, years of compensating for my bum hip required retraining of my posture and balance.  I quickly realized that Joyce is remarkably talented at seeing and understanding the ways in which a body works, or doesn’t, and is then remarkably creative at finding ways of helping to relieve pain or strengthen weak muscles through mobility exercises.  Joyce has worked patiently with me to slowly unwind years of maladaptations and has helped me develop a better awareness of my body.  I’m happy to say that I am back on the squash court three times a week, moving better than I ever did! “  Charley L., Writer and Former Private Pilot
