Shiatsu is the modern Japanese form of acupressure. This technique focuses on unblocking the flow of life energy and restoring balance in the meridians and organs in order to promote self-healing.
Thai Massage is traditionally performed on the floor, but Joëlle adapted most of it to the table. It is very dynamic and is excellent for your joints, and your overall flexibility.

Myofascial Release targets the connective tissue. This technique restores mobility and breaks adhesions. Joëlle will apply traction and stretch the fascia to restore movement and eliminate pain.
Acupressure is an ancient healing art that uses the fingers to press key points on the skin which release muscular tension, stress and promote the circulation of blood and the body’s Chi. It is the power of healing touch instead of needles used in acupuncture.

"I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to see Joelle. I used to go to a pricey spa for massage, but one day Joelle was a substitute therapist there and I switched over to her practice immediately. She has decades of expertise and it really shows as she combines elements of reflexology and various massage styles for a truly personalized session. When I am on her table I always feel as though her energy is focused completely on me and my healing; I feel nurtured, cared for, and relaxed." Simone
