JoAnne Montalvo_MassageJoAnne is a Holistic Health Practitioner and Licensed Massage Therapist and is insured with the American Massage Therapy Association.

JoAnne’s professional strengths lie in her in-depth knowledge of many massage and body work modalities including Block Therapy, Deep Tissue, Lymphatic Drainage, Relaxation, Sports, Geriatric and Prenatal massage.

She has worked in various settings including Chiropractic Clinics, Spas, Fertility Clinic and Medical Offices in San Diego and Columbus, Ohio.  It was in these settings that JoAnne focused on the more therapeutic aspects of bodywork.  This lead her on a three year mission to find and release her back pain.  After purchasing many tools, taking many classes, the answers and many more questions were found in the connective tissue or fascia of the body.  Block Therapy and the study of fascia is what released her back pain.

JoAnne’s  hobbies are spending time with family and friends, hiking, dancing, swimming, traveling and learning more about the human body.  She also enjoys teaching so that her clients can continue healing at home.
