What makes your massage style unique?

What do most people not know about massage therapy?


“Most people don’t know that massage should be considered an integral part of healthcare.

Joan

Joan Massage Therapist

Why did you become a massage therapist?


“When I was 12 my favorite aunt bought me my first massage at Elizabeth Arden. I loved it! In my twenties, I was a professional dancer and one of my fellow dancers (in Twyla Tharp's touring company) was a licensed massage therapist. Going to her for a massage helped keep me moving beautifully. When she offered a series of 10 classes in massage therapy, I decided to take it and found I enjoyed giving massage almost as much as receiving it. The next step for me was studying at the Swedish Institute in New York to obtain my massage license. It's been a wonderful career for me!”


What makes your massage style unique?


“Having been trained as a professional dancer, I have both a technical and deeply instinctual knowledge of how the body moves optimally, including a very good working knowledge of proper alignment and the exercises needed to achieve it. I also like to seamlessly integrate Reiki and craniosacral balancing into my massage as they induce deep relaxation and facilitate healing in my clients, when they need more subtle work”


What do most people not know about massage therapy?


“Touch is the first sense a fetus has in utero and it's a primal need of humans. Massage isn't just about fixing muscles and tendons and fascia. It's about helping people in a compassionate way through touch.”


"Massage isn't just about fixing muscles and tendons and fascia. It's about helping people in a compassionate way through touch.”
