Always wanting to understand and find the most efficient means to help her clients with  their pain, JoAnn is able to cultivate her problem solving and intuitive abilities in each session.

Growing up, JoAnn has been intrigued with biology. She's been touching bodies and lives since she became a Reiki Master Teacher in 2004. This desire to help others in a profound way led her to an amazing journey to other countries to learn about other wellness-promoting techniques. 

JoAnn has since received her Massage License in the State of Arizona and attended numerous Bodywork training classes. She believes in being a life-long learner to make her a better therapist and human being.

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.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork or Spa services

Joann has a very deep understanding of her clients physical needs. She can tell exactly where in the physical body the issues that need special care. Joann also has a strong intuitive ability to help heal the situation. I would recommend her to anyone.

JoAnn has a kind and wonderful spirit about her. Was attentive to my interests as a new client. Her application of craniosacral work did wonders! Will definately look her up again for more massages.

JoAnn is amazing! I left my appointment feeling like a new woman. She did an amazing job during my session, and taught me a few stretches and exercises I can do on my own to prevent future neck and shoulder pain. I highly recommend her!

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 was great! It was my first time getting a professional massage and she made me feel comfortable and I ended up scheduling another appt right after.
