Joan C. Thompson, M.A., L.M.T. & Reiki Master
CranioSacral Therapy, Massage Therapy, Hot Stone Massage and Reiki


 As of June 17th, I will no longer be seeing clients at The Temperance Center. I will miss the owner, Merrill Black, and my other co-workers at the Center tremendously. I have never worked at such a peaceful and loving place. I have so loved working here but now it is time to move on to a new journey in life.   

All The Best to Everyone I have served.




Joan C. Thompson, M.A./L.M.T./Reiki Master


I have been in the healing profession for 25 years and am committed to my clients' physical, mental and emotional well being.  I believe that when you affect one of these areas, you cannot help but have an impact on the others.  When I am performing any kind of bodywork I am cognizant of each of these components.   I strive to be mindful and present during each session and attend to each client's specific needs.

My experience is well rounded, as it includes counseling and bodywork. This allows me to take a unique perspective when addressing the needs of each client.  It is my firm belief that we all have within, what it takes to impact our own physical, mental and emotional well being.  I see myself as a conduit and an honored witness to my clients' healing journeys.  

I presently offer CranioSacral Therapy, Massage Therapy, Hot Stone Massage and Reiki as a way to relieve stress, physical and emotional pain, and dis-ease.

I am thrilled to be a part of the team at the Temperance Center, located at 453 White Plains Rd., Suite 201, Eastchester NY. The Center's capable staff are devoted to the healing and wellness of every person that walks through their doors. Services presently available at the Temperance Center include: Psychotherapy, Hypnosis, Reiki, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acupuncture, Yoga, Intuitive Readings and Meditation Groups, as well as my services listed above.
