Rollinson also practices SomatoEmotional Release (SER), which helps patients to release or redirect repressed emotional energy.

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.
