OUTDOOR HOME VISITS AVAILABLE FOR WOMEN & YOUTH
Though the State of California and Santa Barbara County are currently allowing indoor massage, my inner guidance directs me to greater caution. Therefore, I am continuing to only work in outdoor settings (women and youth only) that adhere to the utmost safety and sanitation standards. If you have an accessible shaded private spot in your yard, let's explore the possibility.
I believe that the significant spread of COVID-19 by pre- and asymptomatic people paired with the close proximity of client and therapist for extended time during massage call for the highest standards in all aspects of practice. Your safety is my greatest concern. I will be monitoring the situation and adapting per ongoing professional and governmental guidance.
Be wise in your choices around massage and other bodywork. Choose a practitioner who is informed about possible COVID-related medical implications such as increased blood clotting risk and systemic inflammatory response that may contraindicate certain massage and bodywork.
Be good to yourself with rest, wholesome food, exercise, interpersonal connection, and time in Nature. Be well and at peace.
THANK YOU for your patience and for tending to your wellness with therapeutic massage.
What clients are saying...
I found Joanne just in time to help me recover from breast cancer surgery. Her intuitiveness and compassion combined with her knowledge of the body has made her an instrumental component in my physical and emotional recovery. She is gentle yet strong and knows instinctively how to work. Joanne is a gift to me and I am grateful to have found her!" - Patty F.
As a counselor, I really value the need to relax and nurture ourselves, and I also consider therapeutic bodywork an essential part of the healing process. Joanne has been a gift to me, and I am grateful to have her helping me personally and also as a trusted colleague to whom I can refer my clients. I can't say enough good things about this talented, empathetic woman! - S. Barnes
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
