JOSEPHINE’S PERSONAL BIO:
- Certified Massage Therapist, Neuromuscular Therapist : Specializing in Swedish, Deep Tissue and Prenatal Massage.
- Graduate of The National Holistic Institutes 900 hour massage program.
- Completion of 450 hours of Advanced Neuromuscular training at The National Holistic Institute.
I graduated with Honors from the National Holistic Institute completing a total of 1200 hours in the Core Massage Program and the Advanced Neuromuscular Program.
I have practiced massage at a variety of settings in Marin and Sonoma County. I enjoy providing my clients with a wide range of massage techniques, including, Swedish, Therapeutic Deep Swedish, Deep Tissue, and Prenatal Massage.
I ask questions and listen to my client’s needs in order to create a truly custom session for them.
Whether to help a client relax after a stressful week, ease chronic pain, get ready for and recover from an endurance event. I have also worked with several private clients throughout their pregnancies.
Seeing a client walk out of a session, stand a little taller, be in less pain, and feel refreshed makes massage a very satisfying career. I often suggest stretches, or other self care tips that my clients can do in between sessions to help aide in their healing process.
Results, individualized sessions, injury prevention, and wellness are values I share with SRTB and why I am so thrilled to be a part of the team.
On my days off, I am often meeting a friend for coffee and a hike, wine tasting here in beautiful Sonoma County, cooking a nice meal, or binge watching my favorite Netflix. I also love to read, color, and play the piano. My getaway happy place is anywhere along the Mendocino coast.
I recently joined a gym, which is surprisingly fun as well, I have recently felt the call to reconnect with my yoga practice, making self care a part of my day to day life.
This is a long overdue review for Josephine. I have been using her for almost two years and she is absolutely fabulous. I followed her from another salon and would follow her again. She really listens to what my needs are and makes suggestions based on what is currently going on with my body. For example, she was very knowledgeable about pre-and-post pregnancy concerns. She is both professional and personal. We can have a nice chat during the massage — or knows when I would prefer some quiet time. I have bought gift cards for my friends to use her and they also have great things to say. Do something nice for yourself — and book with Josephine!
I am happy to refer Josephine to anyone. She is a talented, intuitive and knowledgeable body worker.
Whenever I see Josephine for a specific issue, discomfort, pain or lack of mobility, the issue is thoroughly addressed: range of motion restored, pain significantly decreased. I can function again which is important because I am also a massage therapist.
