M. Johanna Powell, NCTMB, RMT

Johanna Powell had a successful corporate career, holding positions in human resources, customer service, sales and management, but when she became a massage therapist she discovered her true calling.

Johanna became a Registered Massage Therapist in 1991, and began practicing part time while maintaining her corporate position. The combination of her bodywork skills and a strong business foundation proved powerful. She built a successful part-time practice that generated income equaling her corporate salary. A corporate reorganization in 1995 made her realize it was time to pursue her passion full time. Her decision to focus her energy and expertise on her massage business has led to a thriving practice with loyal clients generating repeat business and regular referrals.

Using several modalities, Johanna customizes each session for the individual client. Her clients may be coping with chronic stress and pain, pregnancy, aging issues, hyperactivity, grief, fibromyalgia, lymphodema, or simply seeking relaxation and general wellness benefits. Johanna says it is her goal, "to provide a custom designed massage for each client to lift the spirit, soothe the soul and encourage body wellness."

In that vein, Johanna is involved with activities to promote healthy activities. She has published articles on health and wellness in a variety of publications, including Cooking Light and HR Outlook. She is the author of How to Find the Gentle Stream and co-author of The A - Z Guide to Calming Stress and The A - Z Guide to Marketing Your Business. She regularly speaks to community and professional organizations, and has instructed classes in massage, marketing and wellness since 1994.

Johanna has now expanded her educational activities to share with other massage therapists and bodywork professionals the secrets of building and maintaining a thriving practice. She is a co-founder of MassageSuccess.com, a web site for therapists who wish to enhance their skills and increase their success, no matter where they currently are in their careers.

M. Johanna Powell is a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT, Texas License #MT5581) and is Nationally Certified in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCTMB). She is a Certified ABMP (Associated Bodywork and Massage Professional) and is certified in Reflexology. She is currently pursuing certifications in Aromatherapy and Myopractic. Johanna is a member of the National Certification Program, Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals, and Texas Association of Massage Therapists.

According to Johanna, "If I could start over, I would start massage at a much younger age, but there is almost nothing else I would change. It has been an exciting and instructive journey, and I canít imagine doing anything else."
