About Us

Welcome!

Thank you for visiting my website, I am Derek Johnson, I’ve been a massage therapist for 10 years and health educator for over 15. Relax Renew: Massage and Wellness is the combination of these two interests. I studied massage at St. Paul College’s Medical Massage program (a great option if you're considering a massage career and work full-time). 

I specialize working with massage clients utilizing massage as a stress management/maintenance plan, a compliment to training programs for runners, bikers, swimmers and clients under the supervision of a medical provider using massage to aide in injury recovery.

Can't recommend Derek enough. He spent a lot of time making sure he understood my condition and continuously checked in with me to ensure I was comfortable. Best of all, I walked out of there feeling good as new.

Derek was outstanding and knew exactly what to do to get to my trouble spots. Feeling great 3-4 days afterward still.

Derek is fantastic. He caters the session to your specific concerns or pains, is incredibly informative, and will let you know what issues he's seeing/why they're happening. At the risk of sounding dramatic, the day after the massage (and this is being written the morning of the second day, so I'm sure this will remain true) , I felt the best I had in years.

He is very skilled and does some amazing deep tissue work! He was professional and I felt great afterwards and so much better after some good hydration as a good deep tissue massage will do. I’m glad I found him and will likely return when I’m able. Thanks Derek!

Derek is very conversational and comfortable to work with. I always look forward to my sessions with him.

I had never had a massage before and it was great to have a discussion about any problems I was having and receiving pointers on how to do some techniques myself. Thanks so much!

A chair massage was the best 15-minute break I've ever had at work! it was relaxing and energizing experience!

Loved my massage.

Derek did an amazing job of accommodating me, even when I was late to my appointment. He is friendly and professional and did a great job of making me feel comfortable. I would love to see him once a month!
