Reno-vations offers many different modalities of individual massage along with a few spa services (salt rub, hot wax, aromatherapy) and a couple different energy work modalities (both in person and distance). I serve all the parts of yourself, the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
Swedish Massage is the most commonly requested massage in the west. It is perfect for a first time or infrequent massage. It is amazing for relaxation when the massage strokes are long with even pressure; or, it can be invigorating with short and bracing strokes depending on your objective.
Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that is focused on realigning deeper layers of muscles, tendons, connective tissue, fascia and adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue). Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down these adhesions to relieve pain and restore normal movement.
Myofascial Release Therapy (MFR) focuses on releasing muscular shortness and tightness. The goal of MFR is to stretch and loosen the fascia so that it and other contiguous structures can move more freely and motion is restored.
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. By enhancing the body’s ability to self-correct, CranioSacral Therapy is able to alleviate a wide variety of dysfunctions, from chronic pain and sports injuries to stroke and neurological impairment.
A penetrating Hot Stone Massage can be deeply detoxifying and profoundly relaxing. By combining massage with hot stones, the circulatory system is both stimulated and relaxed at the same time. The circulatory activity promotes the relief of long-standing muscular tension, stress and fatigue through the release of toxins from the muscles.
This is a gentle technique where the practitioner, while connecting to your energy field where the injury occurred, goes into the realm of spirit. Using the help of your own spirit and/or animal guides, the practitioner is led to the part of you that has split and disconnected. Through honoring this part of you, the practitioner brings it back into your energy field and helps it to integrate into your self.
I also have a love working with both humans & animals. I have continued education to support both in many ways:
Hey, I’m going to chime in on how awesome Reno is. Every once in a while you run into a therapist who zones in on whatever is bothering you (either physically or psychically) and just plain helps you. That would be Reno.
Reno’s work is amazing! Reno’s thoughtful bodywork seems to center in on issues one might be having and have both restorative and palliative results. Reno, come back to Western Massachusetts! Austin’s gain is our loss!
Reno is an excellent massage therapist. I have been fortunate to have received a massage from him. I highly recommend him. I will be back, Reno!!!
As a fellow energy worker & healer, I have had alot of massages and energy work from many different practitioners. I was truly impressed with Reno's work. I was having chronic pain and tension due to scoliosis to the point it was even uncomfortable to sit or stand. When I got up from the table after just one session with Reno, I felt completely different, my body felt more free, I stood taller, and I could feel more energy flowing through me. Looking forward to so much more!
Simply said, Reno is a brilliant massage therapist. As a hands-on healer, he really has it all: utmost professionalism, kindness and care that radiates from him effortlessly, and the skill and knowledge that is backed by experience and top notch education. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Reno utilizing his massage therapy skills as well as his wonderful energy work. Better yet, in the right space, he uses both massage and energy together for the ultimate experience in relaxation, stress release, and total physical and mental care. It is a joy to receive massage from Reno’s expert hands!!
