I have been seeing Joann monthly for about a year now to try and address chronic low back pain. The massage therapy has been part of a suite of treatments that has, for the first time in nearly 20 years, relieved me of episodic spasms that are followed by weeks, sometimes months, of recovery.
As I walked out of my first appointment with Joann I was amazed at how sprightly I felt. She really focused on my hips in a way that no massage therapist had before. It was wonderful when I woke up the next day and was pain-free for the first time in months....
Joann really listens to what we ask her to do, has a warm energy, and is capable of doing incredible deep work for muscle and joint pain.

Joann's ability to listen - both to what I tell her about myself and to my actual body- is extraordinary. She is sensitive and smart.
Joann has an uncanny ability to know the exact spot that's in need, even if I don't. She's truly a gifted therapist and one that everyone should consider.
Joann is extremely easy to talk to regarding any areas that may need work. She made me feel comfortable from the start and listens to what I am saying. She does not discount anything I might tell her as trivial and never downplays what I am feeling.
Joann Dwyer is wonderful about sensing when the body might be 'responding' to certain pressure; she often seems to know whether to ease up or continue the pressure in those cases.
Joann’s work is remarkably competent; her deep tissue work is bar none, but she also has that hard-to-find ability to sense where her clients are at, and meet them at the optimal place on the tissue spectrum for that person’s unique healing ability. I feel very confident referring my patients to her, whether injury recovery and specific patterns that need work, or just needing body support in general. -Erin J. Sepic, D.C.
Joann has worked on me regularly for several years. She is very knowledgeable and personable. But mostly I keep going back because she gives really good deep tissue massages.
She has a clear knowledge of body structure and very effectively uses that knowledge to address my "problem areas" in a way that is empathetic and considerate. I also consider her a very creative massage therapist, who demonstrates the ability to adjust her methods to meet my current needs.
