Joan Franklin RMT

Registered Massage Therapist

My own healing journey began in the 1990’s as a client of reflexology, massage therapy, chiropractic, and acupuncture. 

The results were amazing especially during pregnancy. 

Improved quality of sleep, decrease in pain and stress was astounding!

 

I’ve always been the type who loved to take care of people and studying healing modalities fell right into alignment. 

 

So since 1998 I’ve certified as a reflexologist followed by 1999 as massage therapist. 

So I continue with my heartfelt passion in the gift of healing modality courses along with intuition to guide and assist clients in their healing journey.
