About Us

The path to doing this work was a convoluted one starting with graduate work in what has become bio-med, but with a side trip into engineering for 28-years before returning to my original passion. I was redirected into this work through chronic pain from an old injury that was relieved by neuro-muscular therapy. In the years following I studied a variety of approaches that eventually blended into my current practice that is results focused rather than being approach driven.  

You will be treated as the unique individual you are as your pain is a culmination of all of the accidents you experienced up to the moment you walk into my office. Together we figure out the puzzle that unlocks your pain...

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • I liked the sharing of knowledge

    I can only describe my experience as totally awesome. I left feeling extremely relaxed. I have felt more energetic and happier ever since. I would highly recommend you to utilized Diane Hovey to do this therapy.

  • Anything other than fabulous would be a lie. Your perseverance and patience are commendable plus you are fun.

    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.

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.

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.

After 12 weeks after my patella tendon repair I still couldn't walk up and down the staircase at home. After yesterday's visit with Diane, I came home and tried my staircase. Wow, I climbed up 14 steps without holding onto the railing and came down like a normal person! This morning my knee feels as stiff as before, but I can still manage my staircase. Thanks, Diane!

Felt very comfortable and at ease from the start. Also felt that you were very knowledgeable. I feel that my breathing and swallowing are much better! I was disappointed in the reconnective therapy hoping for relief for my osteoarthritis in my hands. They do not feel any different sorry to say. But I understand that the therapy doesn't always do what you want. I am going to follow up with the gut and magnesium suggestion. Overall was a good experience!

I NEVER WASTED SO MUCH MONEY SO QUICKLY.

Business response:

I am very sorry you feel the service provided was not what you expected or desired. Please give yourself the opportunity to notice whether there have been subtle changes in your condition. Also, it may prove helpful to contact the individual I recommended to you. He is likely to suggest an approach other than the cranial sacral work you requested.

I liked it all. My only problem was that after I left, I ached all over again, just not quite as much. However, the next day I felt much better.

Business response:

So sorry I was not clear about the next day effect. Part of the discomfort comes from the muscles that had been in spasm for a long time, a little like post workout soreness.

I was somewhat fearful of what the session would be like, or rather what the change would be like. I am going into a new geography and that is somewhat scary for me. You answered my questions fully after my sessions and that made me feel more secure. You probably told me to be aware of my body when I left the phone and prepared for the LD session. I don't remember that and you could have repeated it. I think I was really kind of nervous about the whole thing and it was difficult to focus. Also, thought you would not like my eulogies and might criticize them or make me reword them. Weird! I don't feel amazing on arising this morning the day after the LD call but rather beat up. I was kind of expecting that and it should take some time for all this to soak in. I am going to allow myself that time and drop the expectations of instant transformation that our culture seems to expect. I can allow myself time to heal and repair. Thank you again.

Diane is as professional and knowledgable as it gets. She knows her stuff and can help you in one session- not that you won't need more but it gives hope to feel better in one session. I've been to 7 different body workers and she's hands down the best

I have been seeing Diane for a couple of years now. She is an amazingly gifted and special person. The way she has provided healing for me personally is best described as transforming chaos into peace. I now see her monthly and feel this is the best investment in my health that I can make. Each time I see Diane, I feel immensely better and these improvements are permanent. I have had energy work done with others in the past and none have come close to the professionalism, skill and power of Diane. I am truly grateful to have her in my life.

I am always a stressed mess when I show up for my sessions but after the session I am so relaxed and calm. I find that I sleep better and longer with each session and my body detoxes easily.
