Thanks for submitting!

I have devoted my life to exploring spirituality,  consciousness and psychology. For over 2 decades I've studied every spiritual tradition, wisdom philosophy, consciousness modality and healing method I could find. With Masters Degrees in Transpersonal Psychology and Oriental Medicine, I had a practice as an Acupuncturist and Life Coach. My work has revolved around helping people thrive in body, mind and spirit.


Overtime, I could see what was really needed was a method of coaching that helped people see through their limiting stories, beliefs and judgments. After many years of working with numerous teachers and trainings, I still felt something was missing. I was looking for a way to crack through ego stories that only limit us. 


One day I was sitting in Starbucks thinking about how I had NOT found this "magic key" I was looking for. I knew there was no point in looking for "it" anymore. I had exhausted the search. It was then that I had an insight that I could create what I was looking for. I had never thought of this, but as soon as I had this insight I knew it was true. 


Right there in Starbucks I began a unique writing process that became my first JOY MAP. I wrote a series of questions and then filled in my own story/ belief. The JOY MAP took my story on a journey, twisting and turning it in illuminating ways. JOY MAPPING turns the tables on your ego by shining a bright light on it. 


I wrote more JOY MAPS and each one became a portal to my own inner freedom. This is what I had been looking for-- a way to take a judgment/ belief/ story and bring it out into the light of day. 

I was teaching a 6-month transformation course during this time and my participants were eager to let go of their inner blocks. This was the perfect chance to test out my JOY MAPS.  Being an acupuncturist, I know the power of meridian tapping on acupuncture points so I added meridian tapping to my JOY MAPS and introduced my method to my group. Each person in the group ended up moving boulders of judgments and old resentments that they had been holding onto for years.


The JOY MAPPING & TAPPING Method exposes your belief maker- your EGO - and reflects it back to you. You see how it is holding your stories (and you) hostage. ​The JOY MAPPING & TAPPING Method has a way of dissolving your stories and returning you to your open heart. Layers of judgements dissolve and are not able to reconstitute again.

What People Say

​Joy Balma is a true gift from the Universe. She poked a hole as big as the great outdoors in my system of limiting beliefs. Through her spot on personal coaching, she guided me on a journey of self acceptance and love which is already making a wonderful difference in every area of my life. Now I am free to focus on what is important to me.  I have shed outdated notions and ideas that have been holding me prisoner for years. Not only am I pursuing my passion of writing once again, I have found a new found enthusiasm for it-- but most importantly, I am daring to dream again. I owe all this newfound Joy to Joy!

I love Joy Mapping with Joy! I didn't realize just how much I was blocking my own flow of receiving until I did this JOY MAPPING. 
Immediately after 2 sessions, the floodgates opened. I am now able to 'receive' for the first time. I feel released, relieved and relaxed on many levels. Thank you for this work Joy.

"Joy, you have helped me tame my monkey mind and opened my heart far and wide. When I first came to see you I didn't even know what you meant by living in the heart and now I couldn't imagine where my life would have been headed had you not guided me. Thanks you for being so patient, intuitive and dedicated in showing me this new way of being. I now have a steady stream of inner peace. I am in the flow and enjoying the juicy unfoldment of my life adventure."

"Doing JOY Mapping lifted a huge weight off my shoulders...

I feel lighter in my body, it appears like I lost ten years off my face, my nervous system feels purged at a very core level.  Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for this!"  Cindy Jarrett 

"Doing JOY Mapping & Tapping changed my life. I feel so lucky to have found Joy because she has been one of the greatest life gifts since I met her. She's not your average Life Coach. With two Masters Degrees and years of experience she has the unique abilities to really hone on and move you out of STUCKNESS! I can't say enough good things about Joy's and her method. I absolutely recommend working with her if you are on the fast tract to transformation. S.R.

"Joy's energy is addicting. She has great insight. I had some profound "ah ha" moments doing Joy Mapping & Tapping. I was able to let go and release some things that had been bothering me for 25 years. Joy is full of knowledge. Work with her if you can." Margarita

"When I first came to see Joy, I was at the top of my field. I should have been happy and fulfilled but something was missing.  I was stagnant, bored and depressed.  Working with Joy and her JOY Mapping Method blew the lid off my patterns and beliefs that were keeping me in a cycle of blame and anger.  As I transformed inside, my life transformed outside. In fact, it's been a domino effect of JOY. My career transformed into  what I always dreamed it could be."  

Thank you Joy!  J. Miller
