“It is a privilege to work with you on your journey as our client in wellness and recovery. Your trust is eternally appreciated, and it is our promise to our clients and community that you are equally regarded with the utmost respect and care, regardless of age, race, gender, beliefs, or sexual orientation.”Youthen JosephFounder of The Hand + Body
Receiving a Massage Therapy License and Degree of Occupational Studies in Complementary Alternative Medicine from the Swedish Institute College of Health Sciences in New York, New York, he has served hundreds of clients regionally for the better part of a decade.
After migrating from Trinidad and Tobago to the United States at six, Youthen studied Ballet and Contemporary Dance in his youth at such notable institutions as the Ailey School and Alonzo King LINES Ballet. He went on to perform throughout the U.S. and internationally on stages such as BAM, at the Apollo Theater and as part of the Cistermúsica festival in Alcobaca, Portugal.
As a dancer and therapist, Youthen recognized massage therapy’s ability to both soothe and restore the body. He was inspired to launch The Hand + Body to serve not only his artistic community, but to provide expanded access to therapy and wellness education to communities of color.
