Joshua Hancock, LMP
WA Lic. #MA 60229655
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. 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, LMP, Reiki Master, CRT Practitioner
WA Lic. #MA 60210556
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 she 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 massage 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, or The Advocate. I guess you could say her goal is to help save the world, one massage at a time.
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 five family cats. She is an avid reader, writer, musician, board gamer, meditater, and kundalini yoga enthusiast. Sometimes she even manages to carve out time to post a recipe on her blog, myredbarnkitchen.blogspot.com.
Lindsey Foster, LMP
WA Lic. #MA 60519143
Hot Stone Massage, Prenatal Massage
Lindsey is a nationally certified and state licensed massage practitioner. She has advanced training in cupping and prenatal, hot stone, and deep tissue massage. She received her massage training at Sedona School of Massage in Sedona, Arizona. She also has a BA in Biology from Hiram College, and a background in field biology and environmental education.
Lindsey is driven by the value of connection, believing that we are enriched in life by our level of connection to all the living things we meet on our path. Her passion to connect on deeper levels has led her to travel to several countries in order to experience other cultures and landscapes, to become a naturalist, familiar with all of the wildlife and plants that surround her, and to cater her life to connecting with people in nourishing ways.
She enjoys hiking, reading, playing board games, traveling, hanging with her husband, swimming, and spending quality time with friends. Quiet, creative and very generous, she's always making thoughtful gifts for her friends like salves, kombucha, and herb infused vinegars. She is also passionate about whole body health.
In her massage work, Lindsey loves helping to release stress and tension (chronic or acute) so that physical wellbeing can translate into the ability to move more gracefully – physically, mentally, and emotionally – through life.
