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,...

Overall, great experience. Felt much looser and flexible are Joe worked on me. Very friendly to begin with and even took the time to explain some stretches after the massage was over.

Joe has played an important role in my backache recovery in the last few months. He is a knowledgeable and skilled massage therapist, but what makes him above-average is because he cares about what he does and, more importantly, he cares about his clients and their well-being. I left my last session feeling thoroughly relaxed!

My massage experience was second to none!! Joe is jovial and exudes a joy for his work. There are those who are truly made for bodywork and Joe is one of those chosen few. I could feel his deep understanding of anatomy by his ability to isolate my persnickety shoulder muscles and ease their chronic tension. Additionally, his massage flow was seamless...not a single hiccup in-between his therapeutic trigger-point release and his general soothing touch. I'm so glad that he's so close!! I've found my permanent therapist...woohoo!!
