My clientele over the past 23 years has included a wonderful variety of people from all walks of life, ranging in age from 6 to 99 (so far). Here's what some of them have to say about my work:
"I have been a client of Bethrenae's for over three years. Her massage therapy is a perfect blend of solid, strong technique and intuitive touch. After two back surgeries, one bike accident and chronic back pain, Bethrenae shows time and again that she has a unique gift for healing. As a traveler, I have had many different styles of massage from all over the world, and I always look forward to coming home to the wine country to visit Bethrenae's studio." - Todd, 49, Producer
"When I get a massage, I look for an experience that is healing, loving, and therapeutic. When I discovered Bethrenae, I found someone who provided all of those. I have serious, chronic spinal issues, so I need to really trust the person massaging me--that they know the human body and will treat it with care. Bethrenae does that, and I consider her massages to be a core part of my ongoing healing."
- Sandy, 55
"Bethrenae is a gifted massage therapist, with an emphasis on the word 'therapist'. Her knowledge of anatomy is excellent. Her ability to intuitively find and release tension caused by pain is phenomenal. Her generosity of spirit and compassionate nature create a healing atmosphere that is both soothing and beneficial."
- Jodi, 59, Student "Bethrenae has magically intuitive hands. She has been working on my body for over 15 years, and I have yet to encounter another massage therapist who has the strength and technigue to get to the deep knots in my body the way she does. A massage with Bethrenae is more than a physical working out of stress. She spiritually steps into my experience and knows where to move stuck energy--there is an unspoken partnership in the work."
- James, 45, Marriage & Family Therapist Intern
"Bethrenae consistently helps me through both the emotional and physical trauma I am experiencing. While her physical strength is unmatched in terms of her ability to work on unforgiving tissue, her empathy for my emotional and experiential challenges has also helped me break through in ways I never thought possible. She offers the perfect balance between physical healing and spiritual support. I can't recommend her more highly."
- Diana, 51, Labor Compliance Manager
"Every single time Bethrenae works her magic, I receive a marvelous massage. This past spring I was having horrific pain and burning in my back. Two massages later, it was gone. I continued on with more sessions, and the benefits were incredible! The salon is very peaceful; I always hate to leave." - Mary Jo, 66, Professional Organizer
