She loves to study and explore new techniques in massage and is a big believer in nutritional approaches for the prevention and restoration of our health.
Joanna utilizes many modalities including trigger point release, Myofascial Release (by John F Barnes), Craniosacral Therapy, Reiki, Cupping and Himalayan Salt Stone Massage. Her interest and passion for natural approaches complements her deep knowledge and spectrum of tools to use in massage therapy.

Joanna's philosophy is that through gentle and caring massage, we can break down physical, mental, and emotional blocks that keep our clients from living life in great balance, health, and overall wellness. Joanna feels blessed, humbled and honored to be able to see these changes in clients' lives on a daily basis.
