About Us

Originally pursuing a career in Chiropractic, Joel accidentally discovered his true passion. At the suggestion of friends and family, Joel decided to attend massage school, as a way to pay for Chiropractic school. He had no idea how much he would enjoy massage. He now uses his hands to help heal the body in a more natural and drug free way. While Joel is trained in many modalities, to include: therapeutic, relaxation, swedish, and deep tissue massage. As well as sports massage, prenatal massage and craniosacral therapies, one of his favorite skills to utilize is helping relieve headaches for his clients. He also enjoys the opportunity to work with clients in an ongoing manner, to help them achieve their unique health goals for a more balanced body and mind.

    Overall the experience was wonderful. He was great and the massage was great.

  • The best deep tissue massage ever. I can't see anyone else except Joel.

    Joel is Amazing!

  • I would highly recommend Joel to anyone. Not only is he very knowledgeable on the muscle groups and their location, but he truly cares about your experience. Joel wants to ensure you are comfortable with the atmosphere and his level of pressure. He will not work muscles you ask him to stay away from and work those that are causing you pain longer. The best massage I have ever received hands down. Most passionate and caring person I've ever met in the profession. Don't think about it, book with him and you'll see what I mean.

    I feel relief that lasts after my sessions with J. Scott. He is very skilled

  • He’s absolutely amazing he gives the right amount of pressure he makes you feel very comfortable and you feel like you actually got something done when you leave. He’s an absolute 5 ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ But for me personally I like the room to be a little darker.

    The massage was great. I liked the different techniques used.

Joel is a true professional, friendly and has ridiculously strong hands. He works hard during the massage for the entire time. I went in with my neck and shoulders locked up after a red eye flight and left without pain and regained full movement. This is my second massage with Joel and I will definitely return. Simply put he knows what he’s doing. I would highly recommend him.

The most amazing thing about partnering up with a massage therapist is that they literally become more than a fly-by experience where you cross your fingers and hope they can figure out what you need even though what you need changes from day to day… Joel is incredible about being able to take that little extra time and effort to talk to me and figure out what I need- even more so after working with him consistently he often knows what I need more than I do what areas I need work in, pressure levels, techniques, stress retention areas and that’s because he knows me… Really takes the whole experience to another level and makes it well worth partnering up with someone - especially this guy :)

Wow just wow. At first I was anxious about going to the massage appointment because of a bad experience in the past. Within minutes Joel had me at ease and no longer anxious. He focused on the areas of my back as requested. Explained everything to me that he was doing. Just the right amount of pressure. I will be going back many times more. Joel is so professional and very easy going. Great communication and ethics. We had a very enjoyable conversation during my massage. I felt so comfortable and so right with Joel and with the environment. I feel so relaxed, refreshed and pain free just a couple hours later.

EVRYONE should get a massage with J. Scott and know what true deep tissue work is. J. Scott is gifted, he understands pain and the body and knows exactly what to do to loosen up tight muscles (believe me, mine are like rocks) -- he keeps coming up with new stretches and new ways of getting at a way to help. He is compassionate, professional, and the best I have had in 10 years with terrible fibromyalgia. He allows me to keep my life going!
