Joan is a former IT professional turned licensed massage therapist and educator. With training in many clinical and orthopedic massage modalities, she uses the same system analysis and troubleshooting skills developed when she used to write software to help clients experiencing pain and mobility issues associated with the soft tissues of the musculoskeletal system. With an orientation towards modern pain science, she offers both gentle styles oriented toward desensitizing ramped up nervous systems and bodywork that feels deep without being barbaric.
