    Two weeks before filming the biggest music video of my career all hell broke loose! Well, at least on my face. I’ve never experienced this kind of break out!

    After seeing a doctor and a dermatologist (who both misdiagnosed the situation and wanted to throw drugs at me) I wound up being rescued by Touch of Joy. She identified and started treating my situation minutes after walking in her door. Three of her one on one sessions had me back on my feet and looking great for my video in under 10 days. She really saved my ass! Thankfully this was a one-time event that has not returned.

    Since then I now stop into Touch of Joy whenever I’m in Vancouver for a peel and light session and to stock up on her unique product line. I have never met an individual with so much passion for and knowledge of skin health. I know I’m in good hands with Joy.

    I was introduced to Joy by a dear friend 3 years ago, who had the most beautiful and radiant skin of anyone I know. There was no turning back for me. From that day on, I have trusted no other with my skin but Joy. Not only is she incredibly knowledgeable about skincare, she is passionate about it. Joy constantly researches and studies skin, and keeps up with the latest research information, products, and procedures.

    What made a big difference for my skincare, was that Joy educated me on how to look after my skin. At each facial session, she spoke to me about the condition of my skin, what needed to be changed, and how I could improve it by taking certain skincare steps, eating certain types of food, drinking more water and so on. So the corrective and maintenance care for my skin continued long after each facial session into my daily routine. Joy’s custom facial is unbeatable- a real treat for my skin. She never rushes but pays full attention and treats my skin based on its needs at the time. I’ve had steaming, exfoliation, light therapy, hydration, microdermabrasion and IPL, and these different treatments have helped to even out my skin tone, reduce pigmentation and freckles, reduce wrinkles, and helped to rejuvenate my skin and make it healthier and stronger.

    In addition, I find Joy’s recommended products, particularly Swissline and Jan Marini, wonderful tools for skincare maintenance and recovery respectively. Because each facial session is custom, Joy adjusts the treatment and her recommendation for skin products to suit the needs of my skin at that particular time and season. I am grateful to Joy for her dedication to skincare and for the help she has given me in looking after my skin.

    After Joy’s treatments you will be surprised and amazed at your healthy, radiant, and glowing complexion!

    Lie back on her heated adjustable bed, listen to the soothing music, and rest assured that Joy, with her extensive training, medical grade products, and sophisticated equipment, will cater to your unique skincare needs. While I love to focus on all the delicious sensations including Joy’s gentle massaging touch, the fresh fragrances, the warm and cool towel presses, the dancing lights, and even the extractions, I truly enjoy our chats. Joy’s enthusiasm is contagious and I always learn so much from her.

    Joy is simply the best there is.

    I have been coming to Joy for Brazilian waxing and facial treatments for more than 3 years. Joy truly lives up to her name by ensuring that every treatment with her is a joyful experience. She takes time to get to know you as a person and asks you about your life.

    I trust joy because she remembers my story, gives me a hug, and provides exceptional service each time I see her. She provides education around skin, hair and products and I always learn something new during my treatment. She helps me feel better about myself and is passionate about making a difference in people’s lives. She takes exceptional care with Brazilian waxing and I always leave her facials feeling refreshed.

    Joy provides more than just exceptional treatments, she gives you an experience.

    My experience with the LPG was fantastic!

    What I really enjoyed was that it was very relaxing throughout each session and I was also able to feel and see the difference it made right away. After the third session I could really notice a significant difference in my problem areas. As a new mom I really wanted to reduce the orange peel look that my regular exercise and diet could not do, so I was thrilled!

    I myself am in the wellness and beauty industry so I am always researching methods and techniques that are truly healthy, harmless and effective. I really appreciate the science behind this technology, because it addresses the root causes of cellulite as a part of a holistic maintenance system. Joy provided all the information required, so that I would be able to obtain the best results possible both short and long term.

    I can happily say that I am 100% satisfied with the results because I am now cellulite free and feeling confident! I will definitely be sharing this to my friends and public on my beauty blog!

    WOW! My husband and I cannot say enough good things about “Touch of Joy”.

    We’ve been fortunate enough to have visited some amazing clothing-optional beaches and resorts in the Caribbean. Each time, before we go away, we make sure to get a “Brazilian” done at “Touch of Joy”. Right from our very first visit, Joy has made us feel very comfortable and relaxed with her professional, yet fun, approach to hair removal.

    My husband was very nervous on his first visit, not knowing what to expect, but was calmed shortly after meeting Joy and talking with her. There is no greater feeling than strolling a white-sand beach, hand in hand, or swimming in the sea, enjoying the sensations of being “bald”.

    Thanks, Joy, for making our vacations from good to great! We look forward to our next visit!

    I tried everything for my skin … doctors, dermatologists, naturopaths, vitamins, special diets, facials, you name it. My Mom heard about Touch of Joy and immediately set up my first appointment with Joy. After my consultation, I finally had hope! I did not want to go on any of the harsh medications recommended by doctors and it was a relief to have the support to conquer my outbreaks.

    Thanks to Joy, my skin is now flawless. And, if the odd outbreak occurs, one quick text to Joy and she is quick to respond with a solution! Joy not only treated my skin, but helped me to understand it and learn to take control of it myself. I now know if I am dehydrated or too oily and have a lifetime of knowledge and great skin ahead of me. I have also acquired important habits that I will always follow, from my green drinks in the morning, to cleansing and moisturizing everyday. No matter what time of day it was, Joy was always there for me with a text or a call, and taught me the healthiest ways to look after my skin.

    I can now leave the house without any makeup and feel confident! Joy, you saved me!

    I have been a client of Joy’s for almost three years, I started waxing as a way to get ready for a triathlon race and was so happy with waxing that I stayed with it. I find Joy to be professional, efficient and enjoys her work. I started with full leg and bikini and moved on to full brazilian waxing; and I can’t imagine not waxing any more. I also notice more people checking out my legs now. Mostly her name says it all, “Touch of Joy”

    I have been an extremely happy client of Joy’s for over 3 years. Not only does Joy give me wonderful rejuvenating facials but also pain-free Brazilian bikini waxing. I also trust her extensive knowledge of skin care and follow her skincare regimen with great results! Joy is the consummate professional. I wouldn’t trust my face to anyone else. Joy is everything and more that I look for in an aesthetician. I always look forward to our appointment and leave knowing the world is a better place because of Joy. Joy is simply…joy!

    Joy is a gifted artist. Her clients are her canvas. Her tools are skill, talent, passion and knowledge.

    I’ve been Joy’s client for over 6 years. She was my third brazilian wax experience and my first pain free version combined with a therapy session. I’m the only person I know who looks forward to a brazilian wax. How is it possible for a person to turn a brazilian wax into a brazilian vacation?

    Joy’s brazilian wax is painless and perfect. her facials are rejuvenating, relaxing and educational. Joy’s talent, enthusiasm for her work and genuine interest in her clients, quite simply places her in a rare category of excellence. At first when I spoke of Joy, I would say how lucky I was to have found her. Now when I speak of Joy, I say how lucky I am to know her… mind, body, soul and… joy.

    After years of treatments with many different estheticians, and looking for someone who provides the absolute finest in skin care I finally found Joy!

    She has improved the texture, tone and health of my skin so much in just a couple of years. I’m in my mid 50′s and get non-stop compliments about the quality of my skin. Joy has radically improved my skin through her variety of treatments. She has taken a real interest in how my improvement has been and has made many very valuable suggestions which have had very positive outcomes for me.

    Just recently my husband and I celebrated our 25th anniversary with professional photos taken in Hawaii. These photos garnered nothing but compliments as to how young I look! Thank you Joy for making my skin look so radiant!!
