Josh Sweet

Having grown up with both of my parents practicing massage therapy as a healing modality, I had a great appreciation for the power of massage therapy and theraputic touch.

Upon moving to Austin, and wanting to be of service in the world in a larger way, I decided to get my training and massage license through 'A New Beginning School of Massage'. Since graduating, I have been enjoying practicing massage, consistently helping to facilitate relaxation, pain relief, and healing.

Ever curious, I'm currently interested in learning new techniques and skills to incorporate into my repertoire, as well as continuing to increase the scope and reach of my practice.
