My name is Joanne Cosgrove and I am California Certified Massage Therapist #59544 (www.camtc.org) who has been providing Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork Therapies to San Francisco East Bay communities since the year 2000. Since graduating from National Holistic Institute(NHI) in Emeryville with training as a Massage Therapist and Health Educator, I've persued training in Lymphatic Drainage Therapy (Chikly Institute), CranioSacral Therapy (Upledger Institute), Orthopedic Massage, Myofascial Release (John F. Barnes Institute) and others. I aim to have useful tools in my toolbox and to use them wisely.
My primary philosophy is: "You are whole already. Just as you are. Despite appearances, diagnosis, and occasionally, behaviors." (a.k.a. You don't need fixing).
My role in respect to you: "I assist your [particular system(s) in need] in helping you have a better day"
My Mission Statement: "I help to tame the young, the old and the restless. I accomplish this by coaxing their muscles, minds or systems in need into a relaxed state of well-being."
