Are you old, stressed and so contorted from hovering over your laptop that you have the posture of a gargoyle? Maybe it’s time to treat yourself to a massage from the healing hands of English speaking massage therapist (and of course Expats In Wonderland client) Joshua Snow.
Just look at him. Magnificent. I feel better already.
I could try and explain what Josh does with my limited understanding of massage therapy and the human body in general, but it would be more effective just to record a series of “ooohs” “aaaaahs” and the occasional “ufffff” sound.
Instead I’ll leave it to him. Here’s what he says…
“My name is Josh, from Melbourne and I specialise in the advanced form of remedial massage called Myotherapy.
With a main focus on the musculoskeletal system and nervous system, a wide variety of massage styles and techniques are used to improve blood circulation and ultimately rehabilitate the main cause of pain;
- Trigger-point therapy
- Lymphatic drainage
- Joint mobilisation techniques
- Classic massage (Swedish)
- Sports massage
- Myofascial release
After finishing my studies in 2009 at the Kangan Institute in Melbourne, I began working in the Spa at Day Dream Island on the coast of Queensland Australia, then for 2 years as one of the first therapists in the new Isika Spa in Crown Metropol Hotel as it opened in Melbourne in 2010.
Now that I have been freelancing in Berlin for 2 years, I am building my own clientele of patients who seek more specific help to rehabilitate from various musculoskeletal pain and associated conditions. The main goal is to treat the patient first to discover the cause, and then be able to effectively and efficiently treat their pain second. I have dedicated my research and practice to assist in the discovery and recovery from pain.”
Josh’s offers a comprehensive menu of massage treatments including but not limited to the following:
He works either from his studio in Neukölln, or is happy to come to you with a mobile setup, because what’s more relaxing than being at home.
Josh comes highly recommended and you will find him to be professional and charming in equal measure.
