Relaxation and renewal for mind and body

In 2009 I began work on my associates degree in the esthetics program at Saint Paul College.During the facial protocol we did quite a bit of massage and I quickly realized that the massage portion was my favorite part of the facial procedure. This prompted me to add on the classes I needed to become a Certified Massage Therapist as well. Although I still love skin care; massage is truly my passion.

In 2009 I began work on my associates degree in the esthetics program at Saint Paul College.During the facial protocol we did quite a bit of massage and I quickly realized that the massage portion was my favorite part of the facial procedure. This prompted me to add on the classes I needed to become a Certified Massage Therapist as well. Although I still love skin care; massage is truly my passion. I specialize in Swedish, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, Myofascial Release and Hot Stone Massage. I believe it is important to continue learning. I try to take at least one continuing education course every year. This November 2015 I attended a  class on Myofascial Release to improve on my Myofascial technique. I am also enrolled in an online Aroma Therapy class through Aromahead Institute to learn how I can incorporate essential oils in my massage practice to ease muscle Pain and help promote relaxation. I am happy to say that I am now able to use these skills in my own practice. Relax & Renew Therapeutic Massage is Located at 6050 50th Street N Saint Paul, MN. I would love to see you soon.

Verna is the absolute best at what she does.
by Darlene on Feb 22
Verna gives excellent massages. Her use of hot towels and hot rocks really puts if over the top. The room is nice and cozy and I like the music as well. I always feel better afterwards.

Excellent at figuring out problem areas. Always checks that massage is at appropriate depth or strength for individual.Makes sure that oil used is not offensive (smell) to client. Strongly recommend Verna to meet any physical muscular needs.
