ABOUT MYSELF

My Story

Joshua was born and raised in Glen Daniel, WV and studied Visual Arts at West Virginia University.  After college, he worked in the service industry. In 2009, Joshua moved from Morgantown WV to Maryland.   Many years managing restaurants began to take a toll on his body. It was time to take his life in a new direction.

 

Joshua’s new journey began in 2014 when he decided to go back to school for massage therapy at Fortis Institute.  He discovered that massage therapy could heal the mind, body, and soul. He found that the physiological effects that massage has on the body is profound.  After working as a Massage Therapist for 4 years, he decided to start his own private practice, Anahata Massage Therapy.   

 

Through massage therapy, Joshua will facilitate a space for healing, increasing your feel-good hormones (oxytocin and serotonin) and decrease your stress hormones (cortisol).  This will affect every system of the body and help to improve overall health and well-being.  Massage will also improve range of motion and decrease muscle tension, aches, pains and much much more.

When Joshua is not busy helping others through massage, you can find him hiking trails, whitewater kayaking, or hitting the slopes on his snowboard.
