Miami native Jo Martinez has a background in Holistic Bodywork. Introduced to Therapeutic Massage at an early age, she found her passion in the healing arts. Trained and experienced in both Western and Eastern modalities, her approach focuses on incorporating the manipulation of soft tissue with the body’s energetic fields. It can be described as a blend of techniques from modalities such as Myofascial Release, Lomi lomi, Trager and Thai Massage. Upon moving to New York, Jo found a new passion in Pilates. Discovering the strong mind and body connection in Pilates is initially what inspired her to train and eventually pursue a career in teaching. The amount of focus and control one requires in a Pilates session is a quality that will always fascinate and motivate her. This led her to earn her Pilates Mat and Apparatus Certifications at The Lab. Now based in Brooklyn, New York, Jo is looking forward to combining her Bodywork practice and Pilates training in unison.
