About Us

Hello!

My name is Josh, and I have been a massage therapist the last 12 years.  I have a beautiful wife and family that is the driving force behind all I do.  

My philosophy on massage is that it is quite literally a language. The best massage therapists know how to speak to the body in a way that can help encourage and facilitate release, but more importantly know how to listen to the feedback from their client’s nervous system in order to understand what their body is needing. 

  • My first 3 years doing massage I worked at a Massage Envy in Westlake where I acquired more than 3000 hours of table experience in “learning the language.”
  • The following 3 years I began working at the world class Lake Austin Spa Resort, becoming the lead therapist the last 2.5 year...

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Joshua is very thorough in his diagnosis and you can tell he has passion and empathy for what he does. I deal with chronic pain and I slept better the last few nights after my first session than I have in years. I would give Joshua my highest recommendation.

    Josh is so very knowledgeable and skilled! He explained about how the muscles worked and how when they don't work properly, they can cause pain and weakness. I went for hip and back pain and he was able to address those issues, but an added bonus is that he was also able to address my knee issues - I can now take stairs much easier than I've been able to for several years!

  • Super treatment

    I have been going to Josh for a couple years now and wouldn't use anyone else for my manual therapy. I play a lot of golf and it isn't kind to my back so I try to visit Josh a couple times a month to keep my body in working order. He is very knowledgeable, professional, very likable. Great family man as well. You could never go wrong with Josh working on your body.

  • A very insightful visit! Learned where my target areas are and how I can take care of my self outside of the session for better injury prevention.

    Josh was very personable, professional and thorough in his care of my needs. He was sensitive to not cause more pain but to use his skills to aid me in feeling better. I will definitely return to Josh in the future and highly recommend him!

  • Josh really knows what he is doing. If you want a good quality massage he's your guy!

    Great listener!

  • So friendly and really cares about the problems in your body!

    Very thorough and knowledgable!

Thanks, Ryan! That’s awesome you’ve been sleeping better because that will have even more of an effect on how your body can recover. I loved meeting both of you, and am excited to get to keep working with y’all,

Business response:

Thanks, Soon! Love this review, because like we’ve talked about, this type work is all about functionality; so the fact that it’s getting a lot easier to take stairs again means those muscles are doing their job!

I liked how Josh explained everything he was doing even using the medical terminology, why he was doing it, how the muscles respond to the therapy, how I would feel after the massage therapy, what to do to keep the muscles fluid from relapsing. People do massages for a number reasons, mine is because of injury/arthritis with the hopes of healing my body to get back to being more active again.

I visited Josh with severe neck pain, most likely due to overwork at my home computer. It took one session and the next morning I was feeling great. One session took me from muscle relaxers to be able to sleep to no pain. Also, he offers great packages.

Josh was amazing! I had pain in my hip due to my IT band and wasn’t able to run. In one session he was able to work out the kinks I was able to effectively stretch and ran 3 miles the next day!

Business response:

That’s awesome, Krista! So glad you were able to get a run in. See you next week!

Josh was able to see me on the same day that I called (I was not expecting him to work around my schedule) and was able to diagnosis the exact issues that I was experiencing. As a healthcare provider, my posture can be terrible at times and I have noticed that it was causing muscular damage. Within the 45 minutes of our appointment, he was able to find the areas of most concern and "talk" the muscles into cooperating so that I have more range of motion in my neck and less tension in my upper back. He is thorough with great bedside manner, and truly seems to listen and care. I look forward to working with Josh on a regular and routine basis!

Business response:

So excited to get to work with you Dr. S! Thank you for the great review!

This was my first experience with relieving muscle issues using pressure points, and it felt highly effective. Josh is extremely knowledgeable & professional. I got up the next morning with a significant decrease in stiff & aching neck. I will be back for more therapy to work towards lasting effects.

Business response:

Thanks so much, Jan! I’m really happy you were able to come in. It’s going to continue to improve.
