Touch Factor Massage and Bodywork By Joe Lavin

Escape From The Ordinary...

Welcome to Touch Factor Massage. I strive to make my bodywork as relaxing as it is therapeutic. I blend several different styles (Myofascial Release, Deep Lomi, Structural Integration, Thai Stretching, Hot Yoga, Relaxation Response...) into my massage to provide you with a profoundly relaxing and effective massage experience.

Because of the intensity and uniqueness of my work, I usually see no more than two or three clients a day, to make sure that I can give you the best massage experience possible. I also leave you plenty of time after your massage to relax on the table or freshen up in a private bathroom with a shower.

So please come and visit me in my very warm, comfortable and relaxing Seattle (Magnolia) location when you need to get away for awhile....

Primal Unwinding Massage

This is an impromptu video of a bodywork exchange with one of the most amazing massage therapists I have ever worked with, Jenna Rebecca Francesca. The story behind this video is that I was showing her some of my advanced deep tissue work for the neck where my clients sit up on the table and she said, "That is nice, but have you ever thought of doing this?"

...and up until that moment, I really had not. Thanks again, Jenna!

Why Your Knuckles Make That Popping Sound When You Crack Them

#Q&A: Knuckle Popping. I get this question a lot, so here you go.... If you love making your knuckles and other joints pop, you might’ve heard that doing so is “bad for you” and that “you’ll get arthritis.” Short answer: we’re not sure. Long answer: this video from Vox gives you the lowdown on what’s actually happening in your joints.
