A firm believer in the inseparable connection between the body and mind, Josh is a proponent of massage for relieving physical as well as emotional stress, and strongly advocates massage as a viable approach to enhancing overall health and wellbeing.
"The positive effects of Josh’s massages extend far beyond easing my sore muscles. My runs are easier, my focus is increased, and my overall sense of well being is enhanced. He is thoughtful, attentive and considerate of my body’s specific tension patterns, helping me relax enough to accept the rejuvenating experience that his therapeutic touch provides every time. Josh is also very knowledgeable about the human body and is able to answer any questions I may have. He is an incredible massage therapist who has a bright future ahead of him. I am confident that Josh’s innate abilities will continue to enhance the lives of many, and I look forward to the next time he chooses to share that gift with me."
"I first saw Josh back on May 23rd. I have been back 2 times and expect I'll be seeing him again within a week or so. Each time is a great experience. I just REALLY need to say what a pleasure it is to spend time with him and how comfortable he makes you feel. When I say he makes you feel like a friend I truly mean it. The massage is well timed and relaxing, never feeling rushed. Deep pressure where needed and lighter where not. He just seems to know and feel where you need work. The music is soft and soothing but not too syrupy. He is a very kind and respectable guy that puts you at ease right from the start. My lower back gives me problems as I get older and he has really helped me out greatly with it... I bicycle and walk a lot and he does amazing leg work as well... I always feel like a million bucks after one of his massages. I can’t say enough about him. I just hope you take the advice and see him. I'm sure you will not be disappointed. I look forward to seeing him again very soon. Thank you Josh... You truly have a gift!"
"I am someone who is quite busy with work and hence keeping a good mind / body balance is critical for me. Road biking is perfect for me and in order to keep up, and to push it I need a good therapist to help me with recovery. I had a great therapist that left the area and I was sure it was going to be difficult to find someone else. That is how I came across Josh. I consider myself lucky as Josh not only proved me wrong, but exceeded my expectations as a very high quality body worker, as he fully understood how my body was responding to stresses. In many ways, he was more than a therapist – he was a healer. He is very intuitive and makes a connection that makes it more than is good massage - it is a journey as he senses where the issues are with my IT band for example or hamstrings without my having to tell him where I need work done. A few times we have had deep spiritual conversations, which was a treat. Josh is the real deal - a true body worker, healer and a spiritual person who gives all his energy with a smile. The energy is so positive that it is truly refreshing. To Josh this is about connection, and hence he heals. As a consequence, I try to visit him once, and at times, twice a week as it truly has helped me feel better and perform at higher levels. Thank you Josh!"
"Josh is really the best! His massage is intense and deep and he knows the touch to make you feel great. His place is clean and quiet. I have been to him several times and each times he can make me feel better afterwards. I am sure I will come back to him again soon."
