From private sessions with women and youth, to educating parents on how to massage their infants, to providing business teams with in-office/workplace seated massage, to bringing healing touch to senior living...I am committed to bringing the gift of touch to our community.

Holistic Healing in Downtown Santa Barbara--The benefits that therapeutic massage can offer are vast and well-supported by studies in the medical and psycho-therapeutic fields. Massage can improve the body's circulation, joint range-of-motion, flexibility, immune system and natural detoxification process. It can reduce many common ailments such as stress, muscle tightness, aches and pains, even anxiety and depression. It can speed recovery and reduce long-term effects of injury and surgery that many patients have come to accept as inevitable.
For an infant it can improve neurological development and strengthen the critical bonding process. For an elder it can ease isolation and loneliness, and reduce reliance on pain medications. Therapeutic touch can enhance quality of life at any age, any stage, helping to connect us more fully with ourselves in mind, body and spirit, with others and with the world around us.
Here are just a couple of comments from appreciative clients:
"If I want to experience a true break from my crazy life, I call Joanne. Her studio is serenity itself with an atmosphere of peace and calm that envelopes you the moment you pass through the threshold. Joanne works with you to understand your concerns and then lets her intuitive energy guide her hands. If you want to feel better - body and soul - Joanne will get you there! She is simply amazing." -Tracy Hitchcock
"My massages with Joanne were the best thing I could have done for my overall recovery from foot surgery. Joanne's skills are fantastic! She was able to pinpoint and work on all the areas indirectly affected by the surgery and it made such a wonderful difference in how I felt. My whole body felt aligned and balanced immediately after the massage. Joanne's massage skills are the very best I've ever experienced!" - Terri Hughes
