Joanne knew she wanted to become a massage therapist after she experienced life-changing benefits from her sessions as a client. First, after a car accident left her with chronic headaches and she was able to finally be free from them; and, later, when she was grieving the loss of her mother and the sessions helped her manage the stress.
When the impact of massage on body, mind, and spirit became clear, Joanne decided she wanted to help others the way her massage therapist had helped her. After nearly 20 years as a massage therapist, Joanne continues to be fascinated and inspired by bodywork, energy work and the phenomenon of healing. Joanne's specialty is a blend of relaxation, deep tissue and myofascial release massage to offer a restorative and relaxing session.
In her free time, she has an Etsy shop of handcrafted stationery, is fascinated by quantum physics and is interested in becoming a clinical herbalist.
Licensed to perform massage therapy in Massachusetts, Joanne is also a Reiki Second Degree (Okuden).
Joanne earned a BS in Journalism from Ithaca College in 1990 and graduated from Muscular Therapy Institute, Cambridge in 2000.
