Facilitating Positive Change in Peoples Lives

I have been practicing massage therapy since 2010, however my interest in massage started in the early 1990's while studying and traveling in Europe. The sense of vitality and well-being I felt after my first massage experience really left an impression on me.

In 2009 I decided to make a big career change from the corporate world into the field of massage therapy. To me, massage therapy is science, art and philosophy, guided by experience and intuition. I get to help and inspire others, teach,...

REVIEWS for my Bodywork or Spa services

I went to Joe with a specific issue -- a repetitive stress injury. Joe listened carefully. Then he spent the next hour working with me to relieve the tension and pain in this specific area. The injury I have isn't something that could be relieved in just one session, so I've scheduled four additional sessions. Looking forward to more deep tissue massage with Joe!

I'm very comfortable with Joe. He always wants to know what is physically bothering me, checks in during the session, and follows up afterwards. Its not possible to have a bad session with Joe.

Good knowledge of the body. Appropriate pressure. Skilled. Easy guy with a good vibe. I’ll be back.

Always a great experience. Joe is one of the best therapist I've been to. Hi calm and caring demeanor always add to the experience.

This experience with Joe was amazing. He was very focused, professional, and kind. He listened and focused on the areas I asked for special attention. I did the signature massage and it truly was a nice blend of the relaxing and deep tissue that felt wonderful and helped me to relax. The environment is great too. The room is large with the perfect lighting and music to set the relaxation mood. Great job & thank you Joe!

Joe is really knowledgeable about the therapy aspect of massage. He was able to work through all my trouble spots while also making me feel relaxed. Very professional. Would highly recommend.

You were great, Joe! I felt very comfortable and I appreciated you taking the time to explain some stretches for me to try at the end of our session. Keep up the good work!
