Canadian-born JoAnn Hill (here with son Jakob) likes to think of herself as a therapeutic/remedial therapist who likes sorting out why muscle patterns are present and helping the individual work through it. But she also enjoys the relaxation aspect of massage including facials and loves the fact that at Balmain Massage & Wellness all treatments are therapeutic.
Jo says: “After completing a 2200 hour massage therapy diploma and being in the massage therapy field for over 17 years in both Canada and Australia, I have developed a large health network and practical working knowledge base. One of the best parts about my work is educating clients about how massage therapy benefits them. My style is remedial focused, working with people who; have been injured, had a car accident, suffer from RSI, carpel tunnel, TMJ-jaw, sprains and strains, postural problems, are pregnant etc."
It's not all work and no play for Jo, whose BA in Psychology has helped her with her latest achievement, a certification as life coach: her rich and full laugh is well known to (and much loved by) everyone at the Centre.
"I also enjoy the relaxation aspect of hot stone, aromatherapy or lymphatic drainage massage. I look forward to helping you reach the level of wellbeing that you want to achieve.”
