A Healing Approach to Massage Therapy
ONCOLOGY MASSAGE | TRAUMA TOUCH THERAPY | BOISE, IDAHO
Joanna Downer is the founder of Kindred Therapeutic Massage. Joanna’s passion for massage therapy stems from years of exposure and involvement with individuals that needed compassionate connection, positive human touch, and alternate methods of wellness and healing.
Our practitioner focuses on Trauma Touch Therapy and Oncology Massage, providing service to those with effects of PTSD and those who are dealing with cancer. While Trauma Touch and Oncology Massage are our focus at Kindred Therapeutic Massage, we are also well versed in a variety of massage modalities and enjoy all restorative aspects of our work.
Joanna’s general approach to bodywork is integrated with slow deep tissue and soothing Swedish massage coupled with client education using current technology. Joanna’s goal with each client is to provide individualized treatments, provide relief and restoration, while empowering each client on their journey to full body wellness.
Our mission is to treat clients with the same quality of care that we would want for our own family members. We provide an atmosphere of safety, comfort, care, and healing, while alleviating pain, reducing stress, and balancing lives by tailoring individualized treatments to unique clientele.
Joanna is amazing! She customized a massage for me after I ran my first half marathon, and it really helped with my recovery. She encourage open communication through out the session and checked in regularly to ensure the pressure she was using was okay for me, which I appreciate in a therapist! I would highly recommend Joanna to anyone looking for a great massage!
Joanna is really good! She fixed my tight shoulders and neck, thank God! Great balance of healing touch, but am able to destress at the same time. Thank you, Joanna!
She is the best massage therapist I have ever been to. Intuitive and healing ❤️
I can’t even begin to explain how phenomenal Joanna is as a massage therapist. When I had my first session, Joanna made sure to ask lots of questions to ensure she was working the correct areas. Her work space is very welcoming and she takes all the steps to make sure you are comfortable. She is truly magical and her passion for massage comes through in her work. Somehow she just knows where the problem areas are and always has me leaving feeling so amazing! My favorite thing about Joanna is how much she cares about her clients. If you choose to tip her, she doesn’t keep the tips for herself. Instead, she pools her tips together and donates her tip money to veterans or others that need help paying for massages. You will never meet a more selfless genuine massage therapist. Joanna, you are the best. Thank you for all that you do for me and the community.
How is this? This note I write is to highly recommend Joanna Downer as a massage therapist! She is well trained in caring for people who have given so much! I know she has helped me so much with my fibromyalgia, my back and neck problems and most of all my PTSD. She makes me feel very comfortable in our sessions that we have and she helps me in a way that no Dr has been able to help me. She seems to know exactly what to pinpoint during my session with her, and I always leave there feeling so much better than I ever did with conventional medicine. If you have tried all kinds of medicines, physical therapy, injections, surgeries. Look no farther than seeing Joanna! She is a Godsend
