Joy Lynn Harrison is a native of Lexington, Kentucky, and now resides in beautiful Upstate South Carolina with her husband and two daughters. She developed an interest in reflexology at a young age. Joy Lynn first encountered reflexology as a child, during annual visits to her relatives in West Virginia: to relieve her allergy symptoms, a family friend applied reflexology techniques she learned from a book by one of the early pioneers of reflexology, Mildred Carter.
As a young adult, Joy Lynn began collecting reflexology books and charts, and would look up reflex points when a specific health concern would arise. But when her youngest daughter developed a recurring health issue as a toddler, Joy Lynn began to see reflexology as a tool that could be used safely, every day, with immediate benefits achieved without drugs or medical visits.
To this day, her daughter still throws her feet into Joy Lynn’s lap and “politely demands” a reflexology session when she knows she is not feeling her best.
With the encouragement of friends and family, Joy Lynn began the pursuit of turning her passion for reflexology into a career. After much research and prayer, she was led to some of the greatest reflexology teachers in the country.
