Ahhh, Just right... Joan is skilled and professional.

Strong Hands! Joan is an excellent masseuse and hypnotherapist. I have received both services from her and have been extremely satisfied. Joan adapts her massage to suit whatever issues I’m having at the time. She is a good listener and has very strong hands. I also gave my 12 year old son the gift of massage and Joan was so amazing with him. He loved his massage and Joan made him feel very comfortable.

Best massage therapist in town! Joan is fantastic and has really helped me through a lot of very painful back problems. Her technique is very effective in relieving even chronic problems like mine. I cannot recommend her highly enough!
So helpful and relaxing Joan is a very skilled massage therapist and a kind person. She listens and addressed the areas I have issues with. She has wonderfully strong hands and I felt so much better after the massage. Recommended and I will be back!

AMAZING Deep Tissue I have been having massages for more than 20 years and, I must say, Joan supplied the best one ever! I was still feeling it 2 days later. I am a bookkeeper and business owner - to be without shoulder tension for more than an hour or two is amazing! Can’t wait to go back.

Amazing... I experienced 60' great Swedish massage. I did receive the best massage ever. I must come back! THANKS JOAN
Monthly massage Joan makes it totally worth it to commit to a monthly massage schedule. She is friendly and easy-going. She uses lovely aromatherapy scents in her lotion and her studio is cute and comfortable. There is a workout club downstairs as well as on the same floor but she plays music so it softens their sounds. I like to support businesses in Lents and she is a great member of our neighborhood.

1st massage Felt great and more relaxed when finished.

Aaahhh... I have a hard time finding a new therapist, it comes down to getting that moment of trust out of the way early. This was a fantastic experience for me I actually let myself relax enough to where I almost fell asleep it's so rare I can't even express how rare it is. Thank you so much I look forward to cooking as soon as I'm financially able. Blessings to you this day, and continued success in your awesome Venture. Namasté.

An essential part of keeping myself ache-free Joan is a wonderful person, and she is an amazing massage therapist. I used to have constant backaches before I started seeing her regularly. It's always a pleasure to get a massage, and I feel better for weeks to come.

At last!! For years I have been looking for a "regular" massage therapist. I've gone to several, and their massages have ranged from OK to not good. At last I have found a massage therapist whose work is wonderful. I have found my "regular" massage therapist and want to recommend Joan Chakwin of Transcendence Health & Wellness. You will not be disappointed.

Best deep tissue massage anywhere! I've been to a lot of massage therapists over the years and have had good ones and not so good ones. Joan is the best! She has a great technique and is really good at getting at the deep tissues that cause much of my back pain. Highly recommended!

Best ever This was my first time going and I gotta say that I left a happy customer and that's an understatement. Joan really worked on me well and I feel so much better already. Definitely recommend going! Can't wait for my next visit.

Great Body Work This was my first time at Transcendence and I will be back. Joan is a skilled therapist with a "sixth sense" for seeing areas of tension. She concentrated on both of my locked shoulders and I experienced an immediate improvement in my range of motion. I couldn't be happier.

great massage!! Bought this groupon for a massage and didn't know what to expect. Joan was amazing and very knowledgeable, and I could tell had been doing this a while, she targeted the areas I needed and my back felt a hundred times better. I'll defiantly be back.

Great service! Joan did a great job on my muscles!

Nice Massage Good massage with good working of the muscle fibers. I loved not feeling like I needed to keep up a conversation! Be aware that the room is up 3 flights of stairs!! I also wish I had known that it was ok to park in the building's parking lot prior to the appointment. Signage is lacking.

Great Right pressure,feel relief after, will recommend to my friends
hypnotherapy visit I didn't quite know what to expect from my hypnotherapy visit but I was quickly reassured that it would be both safe and enriching. Joan asked me about what I wanted to address, I shared elements of the problem and how I experience it, and then she led me through the hypnotherapy process. I never felt I was out of personal control -- it was more a guided visit to a different place. It was both relaxing and energizing, difficult yet easy. In the days since my visit, I have felt a great deal better and have a clearer sense of purpose regarding the problem I presented. I recall the suggestions she provided and return to them when I need them. Very interesting and so far, successful. Yet I must say, just the insights gained during the experience would be sufficient!

Best Ever I had tried dozens of massage therapists looking for one that really listened to my needs and then responded with thoughtful precision to provide much needed relief from whatever is hurting. Joan is a special talent among the myrid of local providers. Her gift of healing is matched by no one !! Thank you Joan for everything you've done so far and for all that is to come.

Joan is amazing First off I arrived late, and she was very understanding and didn't rush through the consultation. We talked about the areas that needed work and she focused on them during massage. She explained to me that if a certain areas is sore it's most likely from another area causing stress and overworking that area in pain. I left feeling so much better and plan on returning to see her again soon.
massage therapy I didn't have pain and numbing of the hands after wards. It was absolutely amazing
