Even on our tough days, JoAnn and I always see results. The key is continuing to receive treatment.

Joann was a skillful massage therapist. I was very relaxed and comfortable after the massage. AND, I slept very well that night!

Jo-Anne was very good at listening and explaining what she was going to do and why. It was my first time having MFR and I found it very effective and beneficial on some stubborn shoulder pain. We even heard a pop of release during the session!

Joann is fantastic! Thorough, knowledgeable, and informative, I left feeling immediately better and was given easy exercises to do at home to aid the healing process. I'm very much looking forward to future appointments!

JoAnn navigates the dance between knowledge and intuition to provide her clients with a truly immersive healing process. Will be recommending her to all my family and friends.

Joann is a fabulous therapist! Knowledgable, professional and personable, she has been instrumental in helping to reduce pain, improve function and promote relaxation and self care.

JoAnn works wonders on all the tense and tight areas! She is very knowledgeable and professional with a warm, friendly personality. She really knows the body and can dial in on those trigger points. You can tell that this is more than a profession for her, it's a passion. Highly recommend her and looking forward to more sessions!

JoAnn is my "go to" for both Myofascial Therapy and Therapeutic Massage. The best massage therapist I have been to in the 56 years I have lived in Va Beach. She addresses any issues I bring to her about specific areas of pain I may be experiencing. Always fell better the next day. I do believe the MTherapy will result in some long term benefits as I get older. Wish I had found her sooner to have begun that treatment earlier in my life
