As a CrossFit athlete and coach I highly recommend Rene! Rene knows athletes and really knows how the body works. When I had a hurt shoulder, she was able to assess what was going on and fix it. She is one of the only therapists I trust to work on me and I send my athletes to her as well, because I know with her expertise and knowledge, they will be taken care of!

Rene Zaskalan, Massage Therapist and Holistic Health Practioner extraordinaire, is one of the best therapist that I have ever had work on me. I am not a stranger to massage, as I am a massage therapist myself. Rene has a natural gift for working with the body to ease, relax and manipulate it to achieve better function, balance and overall wellness. Rene has a steel trap for a mind as well. She was one of the top students that others, including myself, would strive to be as good as. She always strives to do her best.
There was a bodywork modality that Rene learned that changed my body more than I thought was possible. She needed a “client” to work on for credit with the class and I was happy to volunteer. Structural Integration is a series of adjustments made over several weeks that can shift and realign your body to the way nature meant for it to be (before you messed it up with poor posture and shifts due to bad habit or injury). I have been slightly pigeon toed for all of my life. After the first session it was mostly gone. By the end, it was completely gone and my balance and stance have dramatically gotten better. There were so many issues that she was able to take care of, literally, from head to toe. She is amazing and I still notice the differences it has made for me.
As a Holistic Health Practitioner, she excels at a variety of different types of massage and bodywork modalities, but in addition she has a vast knowledge of herbal remedies, proper nutrition, and holistic healing as a lifestyle. She is very knowledgeable in all these areas and I consider her one of my best resources to turn to if I have questions or need advice. Rene is passionate about helping others and it is here drive and desire to do and be the best.
Obviously from this glowing account of her talents, I would recommend that people go to her. All you have to do is relax and enjoy the magic of healing hands.

Rene Zaskalan has served as my massage therapist for over a year and I’m very impressed (I don’t say that lightly) with how effective her techniques have been in warming, loosening & stimulating my tissue & muscles, both before and after competition. During our time together she has effectively augmented my training ramp up and greatly assisted my increase in flexibility, improved circulation & generally re-energize my body for improved results at the highest level.
Essentially this process has allowed me to recover more quickly, improve circulation/ blood flow, & lengthening of my tight muscles. When I sustained a painful ACL injury 6 months ago, Rene’s techniques reduced fatigue & decreased muscle soreness which I believe was caused by micro-tearing of my often abused fascia. Rene greatly facilitated my return to top form and I’m very appreciative of her dedicated assistance. I recommend her services to anyone, especially serious athletes who are looking for an edge.

Rene is a sublime healer. Her extraordinary technique, extensive experience, keen intuition, and powerful energy combine to provide healing that is incredibly profound.
On all levels and in a variety of modalities, from Deep Tissue, Sports, Trigger Point, Structural Integration and Therapeutic Stretch, Rene can assess, analyze and determine what the body needs and can customize treatment to release what is no longer needed, ease pain and help you feel lighter in every sense of the word. Her work with athletes is world class and has resulted in personal bests, faster recovery and better health for both the elite and average athlete.
As a fellow massage therapist and runner, I choose Rene for my body work AND recommend many clients to her because her expertise is second to none.
