Everything went wonderfully for my first ever massage experience! JoEllen was great with making me comfortable and at ease since I wasn't sure what to expect. I left feeling like a brand new person, all my stress and anxiety melted away and I could breathe again. I even felt amazing the next day on a hike...I was more agile and had more stamina. Already looking forward to my next appointment with her! Thank you! :)

I love that JoEllen is able to find the areas that need work even before I realize it. I always feel so much better after an hour on her table. She is skilled, caring and very intuitive. I hope she stays around so I do not ever have to change therapists.

I had an amazing experience with JoEllen. This was my first massage with her. It was extremely relaxing while providing a firm pressure and really stretching out my spine and helping with the ramifications of sitting at a desk all day. Even better and unlike many other massages I have received I felt just as wonderful the next day with no aches or pains from the deeper tissue elements.

Most relaxing and beneficial massage I’ve ever had. JoEllen knew exactly how to get rid of the tension I was carrying in my muscles. Woke up the next day feeling renewed and refreshed. Definitely recommend!!
