About Us

Whatever wellness goals bring you to my table—relaxation and stress reduction; athletic/fitness conditioning; functional rehabilitation from traumatic or repetitive stress injuries, muscle tension, or chronic pain; healing chronic illness or trauma; or some combination of these elements—I will work together with you to tailor the session specifically for you. Beyond my knowledge of anatomy and kinesiology, the defining aspects of my work are my communication with you about your needs and preferences and the nurturing, rhythmic quality of my touch. I enjoy working with a diverse range of clients, and I warmly welcome those of varying ages, body type, physical abilities and gender expression.

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Joanna was very professional and skilled in her touch. I really felt like the session helped some of my injuries. Thank you! Laura

    Joanna is a beautiful bodyworker with so much wisdom, knowledge, and heart.

  • A skilled Hendrickson method therapist and caring practitioner.

    Joanna is excellent, especially in pandemic times. I am so grateful that I can receive therapeutic massage from her. Her COVID safe protocols are exceptional. I feel safe in her care and am able to relax into the massage. She remembers what we have worked on in previous sessions and has helped me make progress on an old shoulder injury. I wish I had been seeing her when I was doing PT. It would have helped a lot to have the combo of her massage skills to add to the PT work. She also gives me feedback on ways to release tight areas in my body between sessions. I highly recommend her.

  • Always enjoyable and relaxing :) I appreciate you

    I have been seeing Joanna for almost 4 years for massages. She's an anatomy nerd who is highly skilled with the Hendrickson method amongst other techniques, and she always meets me where I'm at during a session. As a person with chronic pain it's essential to me to feel heard during any bodywork as pain or discomfort pops up and Joanna is an expert at being adaptable and supporting me when I need extra attention or slowness or gentleness in an area. I couldn't be more enthusiastic in recommending Joanna for anyone who needs a massage!
