Owned and operated Ojai Healing Movement 2010 to present.


My goal is to empower each client by teaching them about their body and how to walk in alignment in order to maintain health and independence into old age.

Why I do what do

I got hurt.  I went in search of “what works”.  These are the things I found that brought me authentic, long-term healing.  I love that I get to “pay it forward”.

Personal facts

I love living in Ojai.  My daughter is 26, my son, 24.  I love to bead, sing and put puzzles together, not necessarily at the same time, but often simultaneously.

More About Joe


Five years apprenticeship in the John F. Barnes Myofascial Release Technique with Ronelle Wood at OHM/Sanctuary.


I don’t guarantee miracles but I expect them.

Why I do what I do

After suffering from many years of debilitating back pain, I became an instant believer in this work from just one session with Ronelle. Myofascial Release combined with True Body Alignment are the real deal. We see amazing results in a short period of time.

Personal facts

I am the proud papa of a wonderful 10 year old little woman.  I love hiking, sun, music and serenity.

I had a fabulous experience at the Ojai Healing Sanctuary! I began my treatment with a power nap (completely relaxing and rejuvenating) and then had an amazing myofascial release massage with Joe, that I am still receiving benefits from 2 days later. I highly recommend this healing center. The people are lovely and the center carries integrity and peacefulness.

The body work I received from Ronelle Wood was exceptional. I have had some great work done, but this helped my body on an entirely different level. I highly recommend Ronelle to anyone looking to make a real, lasting change. She is the best!!
