Joan’s Wellness Corner


Joan Sands, massage therapist and licensed hypnotist



Health and wellness has been a passion of mine since discovering I was pregnant with my first child in 1998. In fact, it became my obsession for years to a great extreme. I intend to share my opinions, experiences, interests,  and the things I have learned over time in this column.

These days I have a full time massage practice in Fallon and also Fernley with a focus on injury recovery. I treat a wide variety of injuries, from whiplash to thoracic outlet syndrome and much more. I’m also a professional hypnotist, stage, clinical, group, and past life regression. 

Touch is an important part of life, and I love my job.
