Joy Del Giudice, CEnK2, is a Level 2 Certified Energy Kinesiologist, LEAP® Brain Integration Practitioner, and member of the Energy Kinesiology Association of America. Her professional Energy Kinesiology training has been through the Melbourne Applied Kinesiology Institute and Dr. Charles Krebs. Joy holds a specialization in LEAP/NeuroAcupressure, and is the co-developer of Somatic Emotional Acupressure (S.E.A.). She has spent more than twenty years in the study and development of cooperative healing techniques, which form a synthesis that is gentle and highly effective.
In 1992 educators suggested Joy’s elder son had ADHD at a time when the only answer seemed to be medication. She began searching for explanations and non-medicinal alternatives. Was society attempting to fit a generation of children into a predetermined role, potentially damaging their creativity, vitality, and self-esteem? She began to wonder if the classroom was damaging children’s neural circuitry and causing learning dysfunction, and that the learning “dysfunction” was the brain’s effort to survive stressful situations. These doubts led Joy on a twenty-year quest to search for alternative solutions.
In 1994, Joy attained Masters certifications in NLP, Hypnotherapy, and Group Dynamics through Anchorpoint Institute. She was fortunate to have studied under Robert Dilts, director of NLP University, Tim Halbom, director of the NLP Institute of California, and Michael Grinder, Director of NLP in education and developer of ENVoy for classroom dynamics. She is advanced level certified in Soma Pi with Consuela Newton, HMR with Dr. Brent Baum, Matrix Energetics with Dr. Richard Bartlett, ThetaHealing with Vianna Stibal, and has taught healing techniques, intuitive skills, medical remote viewing and personal development through the University of Utah as well as privately across the country.
Joy completed a three-year Masters in Light Body training through the Four Winds Society in 1999 from Dr. Alberto Villoldo. She went on to study indigenous healing techniques from the Ojibwa, Navajo, Apache, Qero and Incan healers. In 2000 she co-chaired the Energy Conference in Pisac, Peru.
Joy is the founder of Living Joy!us LLC, for neuro-somatic rebalancing of body, mind and emotion. She divides her time between Park City, UT and Cambridge, MA. She enjoys life with her husband of 35 years and two adult sons, hiking in the beautiful Park City mountains, and watching all varieties of movies. She is a prolific writer and loves to dabble in creative, artistic projects, including painting, jewelry making and lampworking. Joy is currently a student of comparative religion and has been a non-denominational minister since 1995.
I have worked with Joy for the last 6-7 years. When I went to see her, I was in a dark time in my life. I was struggling with addiction, and I was stuck in a toxic relationship. She helped me find strength and a sense of self. I am now sober and in a healthy, loving relationship. Joy's work was one of the many tools that made this change possible. You really have to work with Joy to believe it. The first time I met her, she was able to see and feel things about me and my life simply by tapping into my energy. She could see the wounds throughout my life that had caused me to get stuck in self-defeating and self-destructive patterns of behavior. She helped me clear these blocks and make room for new, creative, self-affirming energy. I also went on a transformative trip to Peru with Joy and others who worked with her. The trip was amazing, and we got to work with local shamans for a truly spiritual experience. There is not enough I can say about Joy. She is one in a million. I am blessed to have been able to work with her!

Joy offers me some of the most profound and effective healing I've ever had. She developed the method she calls Somatic Emotional Acupressure after decades of training in fields as diverse as Neuro-Linguistic Programming (yeah, like the psychologist in The Bourne Identity), Energy Kinesiology, visionary shamanic apprenticeship, and a host of other pursuits. At first it was hard for me to understand and accept that I could heal physically, mentally and spiritually from her very subtle methods, especially coming from a scientifically trained background. But I did. In fact, her simple treatments affect things as basic as my breathing, standing, and anxiety. Her treatment can remove illnesses by identifying my attachment to them, and then helping me remove these unhelpful attachments (or scripts). Her methods are very gentle, and Joy is a kind person.
