At Amajoy™ Lenore provides help for you and your child with play therapy and bodywork. Families visit for every reason and condition under the sun. When parents inquire it's usually because their child has digestive discomfort, genetic challenges, movement issues, and is having a hard time in some way. When parents are referred by a teacher it's usually because the child has difficulty managing himself or his tasks, terms such as self-regulation, sensory issues, and learning disabilities bring people to Amajoy. Here we play, learn, and receive bodywork, and parents leave with a list of practical tools to explore at home.

"It's really great to have bodywork. I have so much stress in my life, and after a session I feel so much calmer. My mom told me just to let her know when I need a session."

Many adolescents enjoy bodywork. It's a special, safe time to relax with the choice to talk or rest. Teens wear their regular clothes and can choose to have their parent nearby or not.
Teens can let their parents know when they'd like a session. For example, before or after exams, or during a time of personal change.
"My son and I have been going to see Lenore since he was little. Initially she helped us learn how he could self regulate in a way that was good for our family. Now we visit Lenore when we have the need. Sometimes my son can't describe his stress, but he can tell me he wants a session. We treasure the calm connectedness we bring home."
