Before founding Indigo Massage and Healing Center, Joe and Charity pursued virtually every interest they could, traveling across the globe to explore potential passions. Joe worked odd jobs and honed his interpersonal awareness as a nurses’ assistant and life coach, and Charity devoted herself to helping start a rainforest preserve in Costa Rica and volunteering at a Moroccan orphanage. Both their paths, however, eventually converged on their mutual passion: massage. Together, the couple boasts 500-hour certifications and endless additional training, and along with a team of doctors and bodywork experts, they work on issues ranging from muscle pain to overactive skeletons. Beyond the suite of wellness services, which includes acupuncture, homeopathic medicine, and yoga classes, the center offers mental counseling to ensure its clients’ holistic health.
Licensed massage therapist Pamela Smith kneads muscles to more soothed states, helping clients to achieve peace of mind and body. Through the blending of six different massage modalities, Pamela customizes the one-hour muscle molding to suit each client's needs. For example, athletic clients or those suffering from chronic injuries from games of full-contact checkers may receive a combination of sports massage and deep-tissue work to target tight muscles, coaxing them to less tense topographies through stern but comfortable pressure, similar to curfew lectures from concerned dads.

Somewhere in her more than 15 years of experience, licensed massage therapist Jennifer Johnston learned how to listen. Before applying her intuitive hands to muscles, she lets her clients explain what they hope to gain from the massage, discussing special concerns such as past injuries or stress. Clients decide the level of pressure as Jennifer applies deep-tissue, Swedish, or trigger-point techniques, keeping the lines of communication open all the while. Jennifer coordinates with patients’ medical providers and doctors to create more effective treatments or find out where to get unlimited popsicle sticks.
At Integral Somatic Bodywork, registered somatic-movement therapist Ishmael Dengate draws on more than two decades of study in mind- and body-centering techniques and qi gong tui na. During bodywork sessions, in which clients remain clothed, he applies varying levels of pressure based on clients' needs or levels of tension. His techniques are designed to facilitate healing, improve sleep, and reduce stress over time.
