Healing Arts

Many years ago, Joan developed a debilitating disease and took a medical leave from teaching. She took many classes and workshops in alternative healing practices and cured herself over timeā€¦ despite doctors telling her she would be in constant pain for the rest of her life.

Joan loves to help her students become aware of their inner abilities, to trust their intuition, and to learn about energy work. As a Clinical Hypnotherapist, Reiki Master, Hawaiian Energetics practitioner, and dowser, she also maintains an office, treating clients in those areas. Joan hosts a weekly meditation gathering at her Studio #311 in the Shirt Factory and teaches classes in meditation, Hawaiian Energetics, Reiki, dowsing, listening and trusting the messages you get, dream work, and connecting with your inner child through art. 

For many years, she has been an instructor and a director for The American Society of Dowsers (ASD) Basic School at the National Annual Convention.  She was awarded the Educator of the Year Award by the American Society of Dowsers in 2015.
