Trained near Tacoma, Washington and licensed as a massage therapist since September of 2008, Joe has had the privilege of learning from some of the best teachers in the industry. He has always made it a point to study under the best teachers in the bodywork field, even if that means traveling to find them.
“I grew a passion for learning physical rehabilitation through the art of massage. Coming from an analytical background in corporate logistics and being prior military, I carried over my intense level of attention to detail and analytics into working with the human body. I call it the power of observation which gives us all of the answers the body would like to give”.
In regards to NeuroMuscular Reprogramming (NMR), which is a technique that Joe has become fond of, he says that the technique allows him to localize problems and help bring somewhat instant relief to painful situations in clients. He notes that the influence of Jocelyn Olivier has helped him see the body as the sum of all its parts.
Today, Joe is presenting his body of work in the device he developed called “CORE”. CORE is a movement integration device that uses a form of dance called Contact Improvisation, which is a study of physics using dance.In June 2017, Joe will be published in “Midwifery Today” for a technique he developed relating to hand pain in women during pregnancy.
