Deep Tissue
Specialize in Deep Tissue Massage Used in conjunction with trigger point techniques to lengthen and strengthen weakened and sore muscles. Use specific techniques such as stripping, petrissage, jostling, pincer palpation to release muscle stagnation.
Neuromuscular
Received training from Precision Neuromuscular Therapy (PNMT) - specialize in Spine and Thorax dysfunctions Perform necessary assessments with clients to pinpoint areas of concern for precise bodywork techniques during the session to effectively mitigate pain
Reflexology
Provide an "Integrative Unwinding Signature" Foot Massage/Reflexology session that combines knowledge of reflexology and craniosacral rhythms to allow the tissues in the feet to "unwind". This releases scar tissue, repairs dysfunctions in the feet and accomplishes overall body wellness as specific reflex points in the feet are stimulated. Many clients report their feet feeling much better and they also feel a sense of grounded-ness.
Trager Approach
Received training in a class from SWIHA called, Rocking and Unlocking. This is used in conjunction with a massage session. Sometimes, this technique helps release those stubborn areas of tension.
Other
Visceral Manipulation - Barral Institute Specific listening (tissue and organ palpation) is used to identify area of tension in the body to help address both structural and organ dysfunction. Organs have their own innate motion and movement in the body. This is measured by their relationship and placement in the abdominal cavity. This gentle and powerful technique has helped clients with digestive issues, hiatal hernia, ulcers to name a few.

Overall JoAnn is amazing. A genuinely nice person. Her skill is all I had hoped for (having experienced one prior Cranial-sacral Tx, in 1999 at massage school, by a fellow-student) and more. I went into and out of deep sleep during the session and had impressions of other healers being present during the healing. As she was supporting my skull it began to move in a pattern like a figure-8, sort of, with some crakling and no pain. It felt to me like JoAnn was moving my head but maybe she was supporting it while it moved (which was what happened 16 or 17 years ago at the massage school) and many knots and blocks were released. On my sacrum, there definitely was movement among the vertebrae. After the session my neck felt much better, but still stiff - though not as much as usual - and very tired, like I had been exercising. Later that evening my neck got loser and more relaxed, as the healing progressed.

JoAnn is amazing! She is gifted at what she does and I am so grateful that I found her. She knows so much about body work and massage and she adjusts her techniques based on my needs. I also love her use of essential oils. I always leave in a state of deep relaxation. It's bliss!

JoAnn was awesome! I had the beginnings of a headache when I got to her studio and the headache never became a "full-blown" one which is the normal outcome for me. I'm writing this review 3 days later and I still haven't had a headache even after a crazy schedule. Her cranial work was so therapeutic and relaxing, and she is so knowledgeable and professional. I just love her "down-to-earth" style, so relatable and warm! You are definitely in your calling JoAnn!

After only one session with JoAnn my mother experienced tremendous relief from her back pain and she even stand up more straight than I have seen in a long time. JoAnn is very knowledgeable in therapeutic massage and possesses the ability to listen and understand the symptoms and issues and deliver a superb therapeutic message that works. I would gladly recommend JoAnn as a professional therapeutic massage therapist to everyone I know.

JoAnn did an awesome job. I have had many massages, many different types from many different places and even in different countries. I have never had a massage like I did with JoAnn. I felt as though she was really taking the extra step to fix the source of pain or stiffness the muscles, not just relax them temporarily. She was knowledgeable and made me feel very welcome and comfortable. I am very thankful to have found her.
