COVID-19 Update...


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.

Massage & Complimentary Bodywork: 

Powerful Natural Healing

Therapeutic bodywork is one of the greatest gifts we can give to ourselves and to those we love and care about. Whether it's part of your regular self-care practice, or a means of healing and recovery from illness, injury, surgery or trauma, therapeutic touch and soft tissue manipulation are some of the most effective non-invasive paths to optimal health. 

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.  

Healing touch helps us thrive!

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
