Joanne Kennedy-Dew has been a practicing Registered Massage Therapist since 2006. As a graduate of Sutherland-Chan in Toronto, Joanne studied a broad spectrum of general Swedish massage techniques including deep tissue and trigger point therapies, joint mobilizations, relaxation and sports massage, lymphatic drainage and active release techniques. She works with many clients with cancer, and other systemic conditions such as diabetes, fibromyalgia, MS and arthritis. Joanne also currently offers foot reflexology and aromatherapy. She will begin offering hot stone and dry cupping once allowed, per COVID-19 restrictions. 


Joanne is passionate about helping people enjoy their best quality of life, which she does by helping to reduce their pain, teaching them ways to maintain wellness between appointments and reduce their chance of injury. This brings her great joy and motivates her to maintain her own wellness, as she continues doing what she loves. 

She enjoys cross-training and has done a few races in Simcoe/Muskoka area over the last few years, participating and placing in triathlons. She also enjoying hiking, skiing, snowshoeing and tennis. She was able to combine two things she loves in 2017 when she travelled to the Arctic NWP as the RMT aboard Adventure Canada’s Ocean Endeavour…. Just one more thing on her ‘reverse bucket list’!


Having recently moved to Barrie, Joanne is thrilled about joining Dowswell Chiropractic and Wellness Centre. She is happily receiving new clients on Mondays, Tuesdays & Wednesdays.
