My name is Joanna Downer, owner of Kindred Therapeutic Massage, and practitioner with Waleli Wellness. I am a graduate of Milan Institute and also have an Associate's of Social Science from Boise State University. I am a mother, body builder, avid gardener, care giver, and devoted advocate of volunteer work. My passion for massage therapy stems from years of exposure and involvement with individuals that needed compassionate connection, positive human touch, and alternate methods of wellness and healing. My ares of focus are Trauma Touch Therapy and Oncology Massage, which allows me to provide services for service members effects by PTSD, as well as those who are dealing with cancer. While Trauma Touch and Oncology Massage are my focus, I am well versed in a variety of massage modalities and enjoy the restorative aspects of my work. My general approach to bodywork is integrated with slow deep tissue, soothing swedish, and trigger point therapy, coupled with client education using current technology. My goal with each client is to provide individualized treatments, provide relief and restoration, while empowering each client on their journey to full body wellness. It is my mission with Kindred Therapeutic Massage, to treat my clients with the same quality of care that I give my own family. I pride myself with providing an atmosphere of safety, comfort, care, and healing, while alleviating pain, reducing stress, and balancing lives by tailoring individualized treatments to my unique clientele.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Rebecca on Oct 05
She really focuses on specific muscle groups, instead of doing a "routine massage"
by Elizabeth on Oct 03
Joanna made sure I was comfortable the whole time and made everything tailored to my issues, which showed she thoroughly knew what she was doing. She was incredibly friendly, down to earth and was easy to talk to.

I've had sports injuries in the past and chronic issues with my neck and shoulder. Joanna was able to really dig in to the problem areas. I'm already booked for a follow-up session and plan to have them on a monthly basis. She's very strong, great technique, highly recommend!

Joanna is careful to meet you where you are. Even if you struggle to voice things for yourself - she can help guide you there and help you regain a voice. She is flexible to meet what you may need in a professional way.
