About Me

Joanna worked in publishing for fifteen years before becoming a freelance graphic designer in 2000. This allowed her the opportunity to train as a massage therapist with the Oxford School of Massage, graduating in 2002.

She ran both businesses and continued training in advance techniques until finally becoming a full-time therapist in 2007.

Joanna is continually expanding her knowledge of and passion for bodywork with advanced post-graduate courses. She has trained with: John F. Barnes in the US in Myofascial Release and also worked with him in clinic for a week in October 2010; The Upledger Institute UK in CranioSacral Therapy (John Page, Susan Steiner, Hank Meldrum, Ken Koles, Carol McLellan, Nikki Kenward, Tim Hutton); The Barral Institute in Visceral Manipulation (Peter Coppola); Jing Advanced Massage (Rachel Fairweather, Meghan Mari, Tracey Kiernen); and the Myofascial Clinic UK (Anne Cruikshank, Rachel Fairweather). She worked as a Consultant Therapist for RSI Clinics for a number of years.

She is registered and insured with Embody (the Complementary Therapists Association) and is a Network Member of the CranioSacral Society.
