When treating a person for pain It is not possible to separate mind/body/spirit

I came into body work late in life. After 28-years as an engineer the call to do something different awakened interests long forgotten. Integrating what I learned as an operating room technician while I was an undergraduate with the problem solving skills of engineering the fascinating world of bodywork opened up a whole new world for me.

I came into body work late in life. After 28-years as an engineer the call to do something different awakened interests long forgotten. Integrating what I learned as an operating room technician while I was an undergraduate with the problem solving skills of engineering the fascinating world of bodywork opened up a whole new world for me. 


I hold a patent for instrumentation that reads the subtle energy generated during energy healing. My PhD integrated physiology, psychology and electrical engineering....a blend that has only come into its own in recent years. 

The work I provide incorporates elements of structural engineering, looking for the place where the body is aligned and free from undue stress. The techniques I use are based in current science related to physiology and facial research. Styles are integrated based on what the tissue needs to return to normal function; that may be a session with as many as six different approaches to bring the body back into alignment. 

Beyond the hands on bodywork I read and work with the subtle energies. My training incorporates spiritual / shamanic approaches to bringing an individual back into balance. My training started with a Hawaiian Kahuna named David Kaonohiokala Bray (Daddy Bray) when I was in my early 20 s. Since that time I've studied with a number of healers and sages taking what works and applying it to my clients as needed. 

I have over 2000 hours of accredited training:
Neuromuscular therapy - Paul St. John (therapist to Miami Dophins)
Medical Massage -- Dale Perry (therapist to US Olympic Swim Team, Seattle Sonics, Stanford swim and dive teams) 
Lymphatic Drainage - Klose
Osteopathic approaches to treatment - URSA Foundation

REVIEWS for my Bodywork, Naturopathy, or Coaching services

by Kim on Feb 24
After only two visits, I can feel a big difference in my pain level and overall feeling of well being.
by Laura on Jan 25
The best work I have ever done in 56 years Diane Hovey knows every inch of the body like no one I have ever seen...can't recommend her enough.
by Marty on Jan 05
I liked everything about the experience. The environment was warm and welcoming but the work Diane did and how I felt afterwards and the next day was more than I had expected. I am looking forward to my next visit.

Very professional and intuitive.

Diane is explains what she is doing,while she does it exceptionally well. She is has an amazing understanding of, and ability to work with, the interconnections in the body.

I loved the way Diane quickly responded after I first emailed her. She showed concern and compassion and seemed to have great insight into what was going on with me. She offered a great deal of knowledge about what was going on in my body. She was very intuitive about my post surgery issues and was able to validate my concerns. She massaged my scars and shared her special technique with me so I could massage myself at home.

It's an experience and very personal time. Questions are explored and options to go further are available. Breath.....

Everything was Amazing! I literally felt physically taller after our session.
by Ritajean on Nov 23
I was so relaxed, I feel asleep. When I awakened I felt so refreshed and in more alignment. Thank you, Diane :)
by Judith on Nov 22
I felt I was with someone who had a wealth of knowledge of the interaction of body parts and their relationship with each other, both physically and emotionally. It is incredibly refreshing to be with a practitioner who understands both physical structure as well as energy flow, and how the two interact to create the best possible opportunities for good health.
