Additional Training:

Myofascial Release, Prenatal Massage, Thai Massage

Joshua Hancock graduated from The Heritage Institute, located in sunny Fort Myers, FL, in February of 2011. He prefers providing a variety of therapeutic techniques, such as deep tissue, myofascial release, and Thai massage. He enjoys nerding out on new bodywork techniques and expanding his understanding of how the body works.

He is usually very quiet unless you bring up a subject of great interest to him. He loves to research stuff. "What kind of stuff," you ask? All kinds of stuff. According to the Myers Briggs Personality Test he is an INTP, or the Logician. That personality type loves that sort of thing. His free time is usually spent creative problem solving his wife's garden projects, house projects, the neighbor's projects, his own projects... He also loves hiking with his family and harassing them into tasting wild edibles. Yes...he researches that kind of stuff too.

He fell in love with the Washington area when he was stationed in Fort Lewis from 1999 to 2002. He is happy to have finally made his way back here in 2011 after living in Naples, Florida for six years, which is where he met his wife and now fellow massage therapist, Rhonda Hancock.

Rhonda Leigh Hancock, LMT, Reiki Master, CRT Practitioner

WA Lic. #MA 60210556

Additional Training

Thai Massage, Intra-Oral Massage, Hot Stone Massage, Prenatal Massage, Reiki, Cranial Release Technique, Aromatherapy

Nationally Certified since 2003, Rhonda received her massage training in Virginia Beach, VA at   The Advanced Fuller School of Massage Therapy.  She has held a massage license in Virginia and Florida and is currently licensed in Washington State. In June of 2010 she completed the Cranial Release Technique (CRT) Mastery Class and is now a CRT Practitioner.  Feel free to visit the CRT website for information on this wonderful technique.

Rhonda is a well-rounded massage practitioner, providing relaxing or deep bodywork. She enjoys working with elite athletes, weekend warriors, and everyone in between. She prefers therapeutic bodywork because it allows her to address each client's needs by utilizing various massage techniques. Unlike her husband's logical approach to things, she has an intuitive nature.

She is a speak-when-spoken-to type of massage therapist. If you prefer to relax in quiet, she will gladly provide that atmosphere. If your way of relaxing is to converse incessantly, she can easily keep the conversation going even though she's an introvert. By the way, no one has ever surmised she's an introvert, which makes total sense being that she's an INFJ.

When she's not massaging, you might find her in the kitchen cooking up something for the family or her neighbors and friends. Other places she loves to be are in the garden, out hiking, sitting by the fire pit watching Josh and Tuesday roast marshmallows, or relaxing on the couch with the family dog and four cats. She is an avid reader, writer, musician, board gamer, meditator, and kundalini yoga enthusiast. Sometimes she even manages to carve out time to post a recipe on her blog, myredbarnkitchen.blogspot.com.

Trager Approach

Jeff graduated from Bellevue Massage School, located in Bellevue,WA in 2016 and completed the Trager Mentorship with Gwen Crowell in 2018.

He can provide a wide range of bodywork styles, but most of Jeff’s sessions involve therapeutic techniques. He enjoys communicating with the body through the medium of movement and is fascinated with myofascial unwinding and the effects of gentle rhythmic motions on the body. He believes that healing doesn’t have to hurt; in fact, it’s possible to work and heal deeper when there isn’t any pain involved. A lot of the work that Jeff prefers is subtle and small, and often too deep to be noticed right away except for a general feeling of well-being that lasts for at least a few hours and often much longer.

For Jeff, a treatment session is more of a conversation than a passive experience. He may ask you to meet his force in one or many spots, or at the very least he’ll ask you to feel into areas that he’s worked in order to give you a chance to notice any changes that have happened.

He is a very grounded and patient practitioner and likes to think of himself as a tree in a human body. Before going to massage school, he spent several years learning Chen style taijiquan and still spends at least an hour a day doing taiji-related qigong and meditation.
