DAWN LEYTEM

Dawn was working in the legal field for almost 20 years. The high stress and demand of her career was beginning to become too much. She had to make some big changes, but had no idea what she wanted to do. She knew she was happiest taking care of her two boys and making others happy.

While getting a massage one day she had her "Ah Ha!" moment. She has now been doing massage for 5 years and has never been happier. She specializes in trigger point therapy, but also enjoys providing a relaxing Swedish massage. Dawn prefers to move slower in her practice to avoid the fight or flight response in her client which creates a relaxing outcome no matter if she has to "dig in" to any problem areas.

Chronic Pain Jacksonville FL Joyce Palamar Massage Therapist
MASSAGE THERAPIST

JOYCE PALAMAR

Joyce is originally from the northern suburbs of Chicago. In 2004, she moved to FL, then to GA, CO and back to Florida to settle down in Jacksonville to help care for her mother.

Joyce's passion to assist others in healing themselves began when she herself was helped tremendously decades ago. As a teenager she developed scoliosis and sustained multiple injuries from dirt bikes, horses and car accidents.

Joyce was introduced to massage therapy, stretching and chiropractic care, which helped her to avoid pain medication and surgery.

It wasn't until 2006 that she decided to leave the corporate world to pursue an education in massage therapy. In 2006 she attended and graduated from The Florida School of Massage in Gainesville, and in 2017 graduated from the Alpha School of Massage as a facial specialist/esthetician where she is trained in facials, waxing, microdermabrasion, microneedling, dermaplaning and chemical peels.

Joyce believes that we "keep our issues in our tissues" as we hold onto emotional, physical and mental stressors/traumas in our body. These emotions can become trapped inside our bodies which can cause pain, hinder movement and flexibility. Massage therapy can release buried emotions and help to break down scar tissue. Self-care is crucial for our mental, spiritual, physical and emotional bodies.
