Any day is a good day for a massage!

In 2014 I became a massage therapist after a long career working with children and youth in psychiatry. The transition has been wonderful, I’m still helping people but in a more peaceful way.

In 2014 I became a massage therapist after a long career working with children and youth in psychiatry. The transition has been wonderful, I’m still helping people but in a more peaceful way. I offer different services out of my home and most recently have been certified to do cupping and have taken courses with the great Erik Dalton in myoskeletal alignment therapy. I have a deep passion for fascia and scar tissue work yet integrate relaxation into my therapeutic treatments. Massage can make a huge difference in reducing stress and pain, increasing relaxation and assisting in a restful sleep. I’m registered with the CMTO and am a member of the RMTAO.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Steve on Jun 16
Very professional. Very clean setup. Very thorough intake. She is consistently checks on you during your massage to make sure her pressure and techniques are appropriate.

Joanna is very knowledgable and thoroughly addresses any of your concerns. You can tell she is not only very knowledgeable on the various muscles, bones, and injuries but also is legitimately concerned with your issues. The ambience is calming and the massage bed itself is so comfy. I have gone to her for my knee injury several times now over the last 3 months and have noticed a huge improvement. Definitely recommend!!

I would recommend Joanna to anyone. She is so knowledgable and professional. She also has a great sense of humour.

Everything was great! Very thorough with explanations to ensure consent is obtained and personalized service rather than a generic massage is much appreciated!

I enjoyed the relaxing and quiet atmosphere. She took the time to explain everything and she took the time to find the areas that needed to be worked on.
