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

I have known Diane for more than 10 years, and I am always amazed how great I feel when the session is over. I have referred others to her and they are so pleased that they have finally found someone that can help them. and in such a gentle manner. And, Diane is honest too. I have had problems that she could no help me with, and she was upfront by informing me of that. I highly recommend Diane.

Diane is a blessing. No one can know where it hurts and fix it better. I am kept well and out of surgery because of her knowledge of the body mechanics and how everything works together. Because of her engineering background she sees the body in a different way than other therapists. I wish everyone was able to receive her care. There would be a lot less angst in the world.

Dr. Hovey helps to realign my body and helps me to figure out what I'm doing in daily life that is causing issues in my spine, neck, and shoulders.

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.
