I’m Jo (I go by Jojo too!) I am deeply passionate about human bodies and our many wacky experiences with them! I am formally trained in Swedish Deep Tissue Massage techniques as well as relaxation massage, myofascial release, triggerpoint, acupressure, aromatherapy, pre-natal massage and Ashiatsu. I completed my education through Alexandar School of Nautral Therapeutics and Massage and received an additional certification in Ashiatsu through Deep Feet Bar Therapy. My goal in every session is to craft the perfect personalized healing experience for every unique individual. Bodies change constantly, adapting to our behaviors, feelings and past traumas, and pain is the most common tool our brains use to communicate with us about the effect of those things on our bodies. Together, we can analyze your body’s specific tension and pain patterns, address them as needed and build a sustainable and harmonious relationship with your body.

My personal style in Bodywork combines many techniques across the spectrum to address specific needs and foster an overall restorative environment. In a typical session with me you can expect to receive deep tissue, trigger point, relaxation techniques and energy work, I am always wholly transparent with my clients so feel free at any point to ask me about what techniques I am using! I work well with all types of people and my regular client base is a mixed bag of office employees, manual laborers, parents of all kinds, folks struggling with their mental health or chronic pain management, and people new to Bodywork. Massage is a fantastic tool for addressing acute injuries, resetting a prolonged fight or flight response and for managing chronic conditions. Its benefits are most noticeably physical, but as a practitioner I find that the emotional and spiritual benefits can be just as profound and as a rule, I incorporate all three aspects into my sessions, firmly believing that this practice helps enrich the massage experience for everyone involved.

My clients would describe my style as flowing, nurturing, trance-inducing and revitalizing. I love hearing about the transformative and introspective experiences my clients have on the table and it fills my cup to see you leave relieved, relaxed and restored. Communication is the best tool we have for crafting the perfect experience for you, so always feel free to ask questions, overshare (I’ve heard it all!) and mention when you need adjustments made, your comfort is always the top priority. I look forward to our future explorations! Remember to ask me about discounts you may be eligible for and remind yourself during our sessions that it is absolutely okay to be a limp spaghetti noodle that just lays there and may even fall asleep, and that it is encouraged to let your farts be free!
