My name is Joseph, I am fully licensed and insured, and have been practicing for 5 years as a certified medical massage practitioner with experience in advanced orthopedic, medical, and deep tissue techniques.
My is aim to restore clients' function and alignment while reducing musculoskeletal pain and discomfort from knots and repetitive stress injuries. I have had extensive experience with the most common injuries and chronic pain conditions including but not limited to:
Carpal Tunnel a.k.a. musician wrist, Frozen Shoulder, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, rotator cuff strains, Tennis Elbow, Golfer's Elbow, Low Back Pain, Sciatica, Whiplash, and T.M.J. Disorder, and intricate anterior neck work involving the trachea, scalenes, SCM, and hyoids to help vocalists hit those notes a little easier.
Orthopedic/ Medical Massage, Sports Massage, Myoskeletal Alignment Technique, Myofascial Release, Lymphatic Drainage, Reflexology, Pre- Natal Massage, Trigger Point, Swedish, Chair massage, and a variety of muscle energy and stretching techniques to help stabilize the client's core muscles. These treatments are aimed at helping patients and clients regain correct posture, structure, movement, and function.
As a former therapist for the Ritz-Carlton Hotel of Dallas, my roster of clientele was quite diverse with many celebrities, famous musicians, socialites, tv personalities, and VIP's too numerous to name but also kept confidential for privacy and security reasons. I am also a Bass Player of 20 years and have been on the road regionally for 7 years, so I know the common aches and injuries of string players, horn players, drummers, road crew, and even singers. I have also been happily married for 12 years with 4 beautiful children.
I look forward to servicing you and giving you the utmost care and attention to address your specific needs and tailoring a unique session just for you. Thanks and hope to meet you soon !

I have been touring for about 22 years with many different bands (Dave Matthews, Tracy Chapman, Primus, etc etc...)
The masseuse I had today for The Weepies show at The State Room in SLC, Danielle, was perhaps one of the best I have ever had.
Everything from her disposition to her skills. My entire band and crew adored her.
I felt it was important to tell how amazing this woman was, and how she brightened our day.
