Asbury Square, Dubuque Iowa

About Us

Our business name is -Therapeutic Massage- and we are located in Asbury Square, Dubuque Iowa. We have been in this location since 1995 offering professional, ethical massage services.

If you’re looking for a professional massage therapist, you’ve come to the right place. Our therapists are highly-skilled, experienced, and trained in a variety of modalities. All of our therapists are licensed and have passed a National Certification exam; they bring years of experience and education to the table.  Joan Knockel, owner, has been developing her techniques for 30 years.  Danielle has been relaxing clients for 25 years, and Tina has been relieving deep muscle tension for 24 years.

You can click on the "Our Services" page to learn more about the various techniques we use in our work.

Local doctors, chiropractors, and physical therapists refer patients to our office for support. 

Same day appointments may be available; however, for a massage, it is recommended to call one week in advance. Our office hours vary, so call for availability.  Occasionally, during peak demand times, you will have to wait a few weeks to get an appointment (So sorry when that happens!), but the fact that we are busy, tells you we must be worth the wait, as our clients say.

Payment is made by cash or check at the time of the appointment or in advance.

We have a sincere commitment to provide the highest standard of care to those who seek our professional services.
