I love coming here. Jo takes such good care of me and the space is awesome. She is such a talented LMT. I can tell that she is very passionate about massage because it shows in her every movement. She always remembers all my aches and pains and always takes care of me. She is super professional and nails it every time. I walk out of there feeling like Willy Nelson on the beach. Can’t wait for my next one!
Jo has the ability to work deep into your tissue and to make your life far more enjoyable and less painful :))
“I’ve been to Jo several times now for body and energy work, she’s definitely my favorite! Her technique is a soothing, grounding fusion of eastern and western, she has a well-rounded set of skills that I know can help me whether I need tension removed in a physical or an energetic sense. I would highly recommend Jo to anyone looking to get more than a simple cookie-cutter Swedish massage, a session with her will be tailored to your specific needs and profoundly healing, in every sense of the word. She’ll take from her training in Tui-Na, deep tissue, myofascial release and energy work to create a nurturing, effective session that will leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed. Couldn’t recommend her more!”
“Jo is a gifted massage therapist. She finds the knots and goes deep yet gentle to work them out. She creates a mood of relaxation in her studio and it is an hour of bliss. She is the perfect balance of sensitive and firm, and I become so relaxed last time I even fell asleep! I love her massages, and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a massage.”
“I was gifted a massage with Jo. I didn’t know what to expect going in as previously I had only had massages as part of physical therapy. The massage I received from Jo was far and away the best massage experience I’ve ever had. She had a very calm demeanor and gave very good instruction. She has great knowledge of the body and was able to pinpoint a problem area of mine without me even telling her about it. By the end of the session I felt relaxed and energetic all at the same time! I will return on a regular basis as I will now consider this my favorite preventative medicine. Calling it a luxury or pampering feels pale in comparison to what it really is.”
