I am a bodyworker that is more clinical minded than most massage therapists. I like to refer to myself as a manual therapist. I am currently attending UT Tyler for classes in Physical Therapy. I am using what I learn there and what I already know from my medical background to join these two professions for clinical massage. I specialize in pain management, injury rehab, long term (chronic) conditions, and sports/athletic rehabilitation as well as fitness rehabilitation. My goal is to help clients recover from a previous injury or with pain management for conditions that are not curable. Medical massage therapy practices can be studied and researched with proven results. I hope to help my clients reach a better quality of life with my work.

While I do offer the “spa” type of massage in my clinic, it is not where my focus lies. I do not play spa music, do not have hot stones, and I don’t practice energy work as I am a very medically minded therapist. I spend my time learning and focusing on rehabilitative care.

I am in the process of obtaining my license for personal training. I hope to have this finalized before the summer months begin. At that time, I will be including a new focus on exercise prescription balanced with focused massage therapy. Joining these two will give my clients a better-informed work out and keep their muscles on the right track for a better and more focused work out routine. I hope to work with a local gym as space/time allows.

She is great at what she does. I highly recommend her ; your body will be glad you did. This is not a spa by the pool thing ,this is for your well being . You will fill better and walk taller.those knots that keep you up tight must go. Great lady

Joyce has helped with my back pain tremendously. In just 4 weeks she has worked my muscles to realign my spine as well as taught me stretches to maintain and continue improving. Now we are working on my range of movement. I definitely recommend getting a structural assessment to see what you could improve on. I had no idea how much a clinical massage could repair.
