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.

She goes above and beyond listening to what your problem areas are.

She listened to my needs and understood what I needed.

I was worried about my first session with Joanna as I suffer from complex ptsd. She was familiar with trauma and none of my insecurities or fears bothered her at all. She worked quietly and gave me the space, in her own way, to be present and gain great benefit from the session both physically and emotionally.

Joanna has a passion for what she does and you can not only sense it, but feel it. She cares about making sure you are comfortable and that you are treated with love and cared for professionally for your needs.

Strong, deep massage.

Joanna creates an environment of calm and safety. I have been seeing a massage therapist for the last few years I finally found a place where I can just be. No good, no bad, just rest and let go of life for awhile. I am very grateful for Joanna and the space she has provided.

Joanna has an unparalleled ability to determine what I need, even when I cannot pinpoint it myself. I always walk away from my sessions with her feeling like my cup is full. She can determine my physical needs, but connects emotionally and spiritually as well. She has been the light in the darkness during my grief recovery.
