Joyce Long’s Institute for Wellness

Receives 2012 U.S.C.A. National Award for Houston:

“Best Local Business”

 For Massage and Colon Hydrotherapy

2nd year in a row

Joyce Long, founder and director of the Joyce Long and Associates Wellness Institute in Houston and Rosenberg, is nationally and internationally recognized as a foremost health practitioner for physical rejuvenation through wellness and detox programs.  Her practice emphasizes the care and prevention of disease through the use of colon hydrotherapy, high frequency lymphatic drainage massage along with other proven alternative treatments for comprehensive rejuvenation and wellness.

Houston, Texas ... Joyce Long and Associates Wellness Institute was awarded the 2012 Houston award for “Best Local Business,” for massage and colon hydrotherapy by the U.S. Commerce Association, a New York based national organization established to recognize “best practices” of local businesses in their community. The award program recognizes outstanding local businesses throughout the country. Each year U.S.C.A. specifically identifies those small businesses and companies they believe have achieved exceptional market success in their local business category and community, which enhances the positive image of small businesses by the service they provide to their customers within the communities in which they operate. This is the second year in a row for Joyce Long’s Institute for Wellness to receive this award.

Long is always looking for new ways to educate people about how to better detoxify the body and rejuvenate the skin with internal cleansing and holistic wellness practices.  She is a dedicated wellness transformer making quite an impact on those with whom she has worked. Long was recently awarded the 2012 Women of the Year Award from the Dr. Hansa Bhakti Medley Association and the Temple for Global Peace for her dedicated achievement to wellness as a truly outstanding woman working in the community. Currently, Long receives medical referrals from 3 different hospitals, 21 doctors and she continues to work with medical professionals to educate and teach alternative modalities for complete body detox and wellness.  “Why detox?” asks Long, answering, “we live in the most polluted environment in history.  We continually inhale and assimilate residues from petrochemicals, plastics, PCB’s, BHP’s and pesticides…these occupy cell receptor sites and block proper hormone utilization.” Long believes: “Your health is your wealth and preventative maintenance is always better than crisis is the best time to get back into the flow of your good health!”
