About Us

Hi, I'm Darlene and I'm glad you found me! Clients seek me out to help reduce the root causes of pain and dysfunction, manage stress, and increase energy with myofascial release therapy, yoga, birth workshops and cellular activation.  

 

I've always loved solving complex problems and during my 12 years as a mechanical engineer, teaching yoga on the side to keep me balanced and calm, I discovered my bigger passion for personal connection and optimizing health. Always a perpetual student and feeling guided on my holistic wellness path, I studied yoga, breath practices and meditation, pregnancy and birth support, and when I retired from engineering in 2008, I launched my wellness business and graduated as a licensed massage therapist.

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Darlene created a very warm and welcoming presence and made me feel comfortable. She did great at addressing my needs and made my body feel very relaxed and worked out the tension. MFR is definitely a different type of massage than what I'm used to, but it felt really nice and I would highly recommend!

    Darlene is amazing at what she does. She is very intuitive and understands how to best help me optimize my performance. I always leave feeling better than when I arrived.

  • Darlene is such a skilled practitioner and all around lovely person! She was successful in helping relieve pain behind my shoulder blade that has been nagging me for years. I had never had MFR therapy before, but had attended both pregnancy yoga and yoga for moms with Darlene, both of which were great. My back feels better than ever, and I can't wait for my next session!

    I cannot recommend Darlene's prenatal myofascial release massage more highly. It's a definite different experience than a traditional massage, but I left with an increased feeling of movement and freedom in my body. I felt both immediate relief while she was working, and continued to feel a release in those tight spaces over the next two days. I felt so good after and could tell it was incredibly helpful that I immediately scheduled 3 more sessions with her! Highly highly recommend! Also, the space is welcoming and warm, Darlene's energy is calming and confident! Overall, cannot say enough good things!

  • Darlene is excellent at what she does and you leave there better then when you entered.

    My first appointment was thorough and Darlene methods for releasing fascia helped me feel much better after my first appointment itself. Look forward to seeing here again soon.

  • Darlene is professional, experienced and skilled at listening, diagnosing and developing a plan to get you feeling better.

    The ultimate healing experience. I’ve been suffering from swollen and stiff Achilles’ tendons for about six months. After regularly visiting a PT twice a week for about 2 months, I saw very little improvement. After only one visit to Bergener Health, I was healed! I also frequent massage parlors and spas, but Darlene’s treatments supersedes them all. I cannot wait to return for my next appointment!

  • Darlene is amazing! She is super knowledgeable and really helps treat my Fibromyalgia.

    Great experience. Darlene is an amazing therapist 👍🏻
