Your Therapist

Meet Joan Hoffman, L.M.T.

Meet Joan, the driving force behind Jabez Bodyworks, where expertise meets compassion in the realm of massage therapy. Driven by personal experience and a profound desire to aid others, Joan’s journey into this healing art began with a pivotal moment of physical struggle that reshaped her life. Initially debilitated by severe knee pain, she rediscovered a former acquaintance skilled in massage within the realm of Chinese Medicine, who unveiled a deeper issue—a twisted torso affecting her femur’s alignment. Inspired by his holistic approach and the life-changing impact of his treatments, Joan embarked on a quest to heal and educate others as he had done for her.
