The House: When Jim & Salty Hanes offered me to buy their house, I was honored to have the opportunity to create a wellness spa in the house that was renovated by a violin maker.
The former owners of the Bentwood & Bead Gallery and, before that, The String Shop, renovated this old house into a work of art, simple but elegant in its detail. I have followed their lead and added a few of my own touches - sponge painted walls and mohagany pocket doors. ~Joanie
The Art: Currently, on the walls in each of the rooms we are proudly presenting the photography of local Juneau photographer: Shar Fox. Shar's photography is sensitive and evocative. With an eye for the natural world, Shar has been known to add a bit of color to her photographs for a touch that is her own.
Joanie Waller: Joanie has been offering therapeutic massage in Juneau and nearby Gustavus since 1999. She has been trained in Swedish, Deep Tissue, Soft-Tissue Release, and in Soma Neuromuscular Integration - founded by one of Ida P. Rolf's students, Bill Williams. Although she can "go deep", Joanie likes to say that her massage technique is 'multi-faceted" depending on the client's needs. Her goal is to relieve pain and allow the client to move more freely and easily.
Bobbi Mitchell: Bobbi offers intuitive touch drawn from her skills in Swedish massage, Lymphatic Drainage and Cranio-sacral bodywork, and more.
Jodi Hastings, Reiki Master, offers Reiki sessions. In a traditional Reiki session, energy flow assists in balancing the auras and clearing blockage that weaken the body. A Reiki session includes energy healing and is time to help you relax and reduce stress.
