About Joan Gennarini

Joan Gennarini of Rekindled Spirits Therapeutic Massage

Joan Gennarini was born in Colorado and raised in Indiana. Her parents were music teachers, and her mother later became a massage therapist.

Joan’s career in massage therapy started after a 15-year stint in Corporate America. During that time she moved across the country from California to Texas to Maryland working for companies like Shell Oil, Enron North America, and Pacific Gas and Electric.

After enduring years of long hours sitting in meetings, working with various personalities of co-workers, meeting stressful deadlines, and staring at the computer screen for many hours on end, Joan decided it was time to begin her healing journey.

Inspired by her mother’s skill in massage therapy, Joan broke away from the busy corporate lifestyle in September 2003 and attended massage school full time at the Cayce/Reilly School of Massotherapy in Virginia Beach, Virginia. After graduation in 2004, she began working for a popular Day Spa in Newark, Delaware, and in 2006 opened her own private clientele massage business, Rekindled Spirits Therapeutic Massage.

Joan has experience with a variety of massage styles, and has served thousands of individuals with diverse issues, including auto injury medical massages and therapeutic massage for seniors. She is also available for corporate and social functions—a great way to say “thank you” to employees and friends. Because of Joan’s previous corporate work experience, she relates well to her clientele’s daily work challenges, and thoroughly enjoys helping them achieve a more balanced state of wellness. She has over 500 active clients in Delaware, and has given 5,500+ massages since receiving her certification.

Joan Gennarini is a licensed massage therapist in Pennsylvania and Delaware, and also holds national certification with NCTMB. She received an Executive MBA from Houston Baptist University, and a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Colorado State University.

Other certifications and experience include:

  • Pregnancy Massage
  • Level 2 - Cranio-Sacral
  • Level 2 - Day-Break Geriatric
  • Level 2 - Zero Balancing
  • Reiki Master
  • ABMP Prof/Gen Liability Insurance

In August 2019, Joan relocated her business to the Pittsburgh area and now serves clients in Aspinwall, PA and the surrounding communities of Fox Chapel, North Side, North Shore, North Hills and South Hills.
