I met Renee over eight years ago. At that time I was dealing with a then undiagnosed neurological disorder. I tried acupuncture met with chiropractors but only received short-term relief. Physical therapy only helped on the areas that the Doctors prescribed for a short period of time. Unable to find long term success or pain relief I was then introduced to Renee and Massage Therapy. What a positive difference this had made in my quality of life. In my opinion working with Renee has shortened my rehab time after surgeries and allowed me not to be away from work for an extended period of time. Renee and Massage Therapy has given me relief when I didn’t think it was possible. –James M.

Renee Hoovel has been my clinical massage therapist for several years and I can honestly say that she is the main reason I have been able to maintain my level of activity and exercise. Renee is an incredible therapist, extremely professional and routinely attends professional development to stay current and knowledgeable in her practice. After attending a recent pd session, she applied a technique she learned that has considerably eased my chronic Iliotibial Band (IT) Syndrome and back pain. Her knowledge of muscles, nerves, joints and basic overall body wellness is amazing, and she can readily identify and focus on what her client needs. I highly recommend Renee to anyone with chronic issues or who just needs a few minutes of relaxation. –Barb K.

About five years ago I was diagnosed with costochondritis. Costochondritis is the inflammation of the junctions where the upper ribs join with the cartilage that holds them to the sternum. This causes localized chest wall pain and tenderness. My doctor said the only way he could treat this problem was with pain medication. So I began the journey of multiple pain medications to relieve my condition. At this time I was seeing Renee for massage therapy for my neck. I asked her one day about the costochondritis and if there was anything she could do to help the condition. After she had researched the condition she came up with a massage therapy program to help with my situation. After a few months I began to have much less pain and was able to go back to my doctor explain what I was doing and actually decrease the amount of pain medication I was currently taking. The doctor now recommends this massage therapy to other patients that have this similar condition. Renee was willing to take the time to research my condition and to put me on the path to better health. She has truly given me a better quality of life. Both I and my family thank her for the work that she has done and continues to do with me. She is a true professional in her field and has a caring heart. Thank you Renee for everything you have done for me!–Howard R.
