About Us

My home studio is a very quiet and relaxing place to be able to unwind and take full advantage of a great massage. Here I can also offer outside massages, weather permitting, that is very unique.

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Joe takes time to talk to you to find the areas that are concerning to the client before the session begins. He is attentive to how you react to the pressure of the massage and will adjust accordingly. He lets the client take the lead in initiating conversation during the massage or just silent relaxation. His studio is well organized and comfortable. Joe is well respected in the community, not only for his professionalism, but for his reputation. I recommend Joe Goodwin to anyone needing massage therapy.

    Joe is very professional and gives a great massage every time! I have been going to him every month for a while now and look forward to each appointment.

  • My shoulders feel better than they have in years. Great experience. I am a teacher and need all the help I can get at this time of year.

    Like: really gets into the muscles which is very "healing" professional with my nakedness can tell he really knows his "stuff" been 3 X's & has really helped my problem--much more than a chiropractor that I visited for 3 yrs. Not very king on the music--my fault for not telling I don't especially like

  • Joe Goodwin was the only massage therapist in the area that could give me a deep tissue massage and do it right. He has the right combination of skill and strength.

    Joe Goodwin is the best massage therapist I have ever been to in my entire life. He is truly gifted at finding the problem areas, and fixing them!! He is also a great guy!! He is truly the best massage therapist in the world!!!!

  • Joe is wonderful. He always relieves my trouble spots. He is very knowledgeable about what he does. Great personality and professionalism every time.

    I always feel relaxed after a massage at Mbrace.

  • Amazing and professional! He has worked miracles with my back and neck!
