Wiscasset Support Group Meeting Reminder

Joel Oyer is a Licensed Therapeutic Massage Therapist from Big Toe Bodyworks in Damariscotta Maine.  Here is a description of his practice, experience, and training from his website in his words.

" A “practice” has been defined as “the actual application or use of an idea, belief, or method as opposed to theories about such application or use” and anything that you do regularly that nurtures you. I approach my massage as a “practice”. It is something I endeavor to do consciously, with hopeful intent to benefit both people involved. Through massage and the act of human touch, we can encourage a progression towards a healthier, more whole state of being from which healing from within can take place.

I am a graduate of the Downeast School of Massage in Waldoboro, Maine. I studied Swedish and Deep Tissue massage as well as Zen Shiatsu. I have further study in deep tissue work with David Lauterstein and myofascial structural integration with Tom Myers. I have been attuned to Reiki Master-Level 3.

My professional past is varied. I graduated from culinary arts school in the early ‘90s and worked as a cook for seven years. I worked on rivers for about that same amount of time as a raft guide and kayak instructor. I served in the United States Marine Corps from 1999-2003. Upon moving to Maine in 2007, I worked as a stone mason crafting structures that can stand the test of time.

My massage practice is an integration of all that I have learned and experienced.  I look forward to the opportunity of working with people to help facilitate a progression towards a healthier, more whole state of being."
