Joanne DiRusso, LMT, CPT is a full time Integrative Massage and Exercise Therapist. Joanne is CPR/ AED Certified. She began to study massage therapy when she saw the effect massage had on individuals with injuries and chronic pain. Joanne studied Massage Therapy at Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy in Newington, Connecticut.

Through her own musculoskeletal imbalances, the importance of stability, and strength became clear. She continued her education through the National Academy of Sports Medicine to become Certified in Personal Training. In 2013 she sought out training in Advanced Kinesio Taping Methods, which has proven in her own practice to be very beneficial in most cases, when she applies the tape on its' own, or after her manual therapy work.

Joanne works with clients one on one, as well as in tandem with Physical Therapists, Chiropractors, Acupuncturists, Osteopaths, Personal Trainers, and Reflexologists. She has a great understanding of individuals’ tolerance levels, how to customize each session to balance client comfort with greater mobility and relief.
