About Us

The professional relationship between a client and massage therapist is vital to the treatment results. Compatibility is difficult to evaluate based on reading a bio or even from a friends recommendation, so I offer the first massage appointment at 1/2 price ($30). I consider this first appointment an "interview" for the client to decide if their expectations were met, they were comfortable, and their concerns were addressed.

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • JoElle is awesome! She is personable, skilled in her profession and customized treatment to fit my needs. She asked how I was doing throughout the appointment and helped relieve tightness in my neck and shoulder areas. I highly recommend JoElle as a massage therapist and for those with specific TMJ / neck pain. Thanks, JoElle!

    I've been suffering stiffness in my neck for more than a year. I've been to other massage therapists, chiropractors. I have to say JoElle has a touch and technique like no other I've experienced. I am feeling better than I have in a very long time. Highly recommend.

  • Excellent massage! The best ever. My back feels better and less tight. Wish I could do this every week!

    I so appreciate JoElle brining to her massage practice her years of wisdom & experience as a dental hygienist which has been so beneficial in alleviating discomfort from TMJ. Would highly recommend.

  • I appreciated the entire experience. JoElle is not only a kind and caring provider but knowledgeable and did an Excellent job!

    Loved every second.

  • I have never had a MT that was so inituitve. I appreciate someone that takes their time to know what my body needs

    JoElle is very good. I would highly recommend her. One of the best massages I've ever had. She is very skilled at intra oral massages for TMJD pain.

  • JoElle is very personable and kind, and she tries to anticipate questions to make sure it's a pleasant experience. I have never had a neck massage quite like that and it seemed to get deep into my troubled areas. Thank you for the great work!

    JoElle was wonderful. If you are looking for a real massage to serve real benefits whether you get migraines or stand for long hours (both of which I do) or have general or localized aches and pains, this is the person for you! Her intuition and ability to find all of the spots you need work (before you even mention them!) is remarkable. I will definitely return!
