Clara Santos RMT
Registered Massage Therapist

Clara is one of Renew You’s deep tissue massage specialists. For the well traveled massage client who needs and likes deep manipulation work, Clara is the therapist for you. She has been a practicing massage therapist since 2005. Her experience covers spa and resort settings, as well as the rehab, multi-disciplinary clinic nature of Renew You. She is known as Renew You’s gentle and warm soul.

While her ability to help you relax or to work deeply into your aching muscles is great, she is repeatedly sought after for her adept ability to deliver…. SILENCE during your treatment. While she is certainly talkative, she is not “gabby”. If you have found you like massage, but your therapist talks through your ability to deeply relax and truly enjoy it, you will love Clara. (EVERYBODY loves Clara. She is just a gem!)

Many clients are shocked at how surprisingly effective Clara’s deep tissue work can be. Great strength can come from “small packages”. Clara has unusually strong hands and fabulous upper body strength for effective deep tissue work. Whether you only want a relaxation massage, a de-stressing session or are rehabbing an injury, Clara’s massage is superb. She is a longtime Hamilton resident. When she joined Renew You’s staff in the spring of 2006, she got busy right away and built up regular clientele very quickly – both true measures of effective high quality massage therapy work.

The good news is that Clara can give you an exceptional massage. The bad news is she is an excellent therapist, is veteran established and has many many regulars, so she may be hard at time to get booked in with. Important note: Especially if you seek Friday & Saturday appointments, plan on booking (or re-booking) with Clara perhaps at least 2 if not 4 weeks in advance to get your ideal time slot.

Clara’s practice hours at Renew You are as follows:
Monday to Friday  1:00 – 7:00 PM
Saturday  10:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Earlier and morning appointments available by request

 


Richard Everett RMTRichard RMT 2
Registered Massage Therapist

Richard has become to be known as Renew You’s “technical” massage specialist. He has always been focused on health. Early in high school, he had gained a keen interest in health and biology and decided at that point to further his interest and knowledge into health care. So he enrolled at the Canadian Therapeutic College (CTC) to pursue a career in registered massage therapy. After graduating and successful completion of the Ontario provincial board exams, he became a member of the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO) in 1999.

He started his massage therapy career working with a chiropractor, focusing his knowledge and skills on rehabilitative therapy. It is in this type of “rehab clinic” environment that Richard has spent his entire 15 year career. It is quite rare to find a 10-15+ year veteran massage therapist. Within four different Hamilton or Stoney Creek clinics, for a decade and a half he has been working closely with several chiropractors and physiotherapists on a very wide variety of difficult injury and pain cases loads. And it is because of this professional experience and exposure that Richard has been able to advance and hone his skill set to a high level. It is for these reasons that many clients who find Richard – stay addicted and attached to him.

Richard’s unique methodologies distinguish him from his colleagues because of the many advanced body work techniques that he has picked up, learned and utilizes. He is particularly adept at resolving very difficult shoulder, neck and low back problems. By incorporating joint mobilization, trigger point therapy, hydro- therapy, and other modalities into his massages, he always tries to ensure the best treatment possible to get the maximum results. Upon finding and trying Richard for massage therapy, a great many patients are positively taken back as they experience how different his treatments are compared to other RMTs they have tried, as well as the positive therapeutic benefits they receive.

KEY POINT: Additional fantastic skills are Richard’s exceptional palpation abilities. In English, you could not tell him where your problems are and he will find them…. simply by touch. It is truly uncanny how consistently he finds the EXACT spots of where the problems are. Most people do not appreciate how rare and advanced these skills are. And to equal Richard’s ability to find sources of your problems, he applies advanced skills to help resolve them as well. I think Richard has mastered “using the force” or something like that. The good news is that this translates into working the right spots, in the right way to help eliminate your pain. Forget the “I want female therapist thing”. This is medical! Who cares. If you want to rid yourself of pain, you have to try Richard and discover how superior his skills are. He is truly a rare and exceptional find for you. If you have had a chronic problem for years, you are about to get addicted to this therapist’s work.

Over the past 15 years working as a registered massage therapist, he has learned to incorporate these modalities together to create the best program, tailored to each client’s individual needs. Realizing that massage therapy is an important part of a healthy lifestyle, Richard also sees a need to create a peaceful and relaxing mood during treatment. As a registered massage therapist, he will endeavor to create a mind/ body connection in order to create a well rounded healing process for you.

Many people relate to Richard as just a regular good guy. He enjoys a busy family life with wife and two young children locally here in Hamilton.

Richard’s practice hours at Renew You are as follows:
Tuesdays  10:00 AM – 6:00 PM
Fridays  1:00 – 7:00 PM
Saturdays  9:00 AM – 2:00 PM

 


Devin Briggs RMTDevin Briggs RMT and Shiatsu Therapist
Registered Massage Therapist
Shiatsu Therapist

Devin is yet another fantastic find for those seeking an excellent veteran massage therapist. She brings 14 years experience to her treatments and offers therapeutic massage blending Swedish techniques with Shiatsu therapy. Her professional experience includes being an RMT since 2006 and a Shiatsu Therapist since 2001. So if you prefer a veteran therapist, especially one who can do really effective deep tissue work, you will just adore her work!

What makes Devin so unique for an RMT is her Shiatsu background (2200 hours, 2 year fulltime program) which she trained for prior to becoming an RMT (2200 hours, 2 year fulltime program). There are very few to no Shiatsu therapists around Hamilton – let alone one who is dual qualified also an RMT. This offers significant benefits for you to be healed more quickly and effectively.

What is Shiatsu (learn more)? Boy are you in for a treat. Briefly Shiatsu is a form of Japanese bodywork therapy that emphasizes continuous static pressure, sometimes but not always deep pressure (hint hint), on one spot on acupuncture points! Whereas Swedish massage uses more “sliding and gliding” techniques. Shiatsu is an extremely effective chronic pain therapy. Technically it is not really western style massage per se, but it blends into massage therapy beautifully. And it falls fully into the scope of a massage therapist’s work. Devin says she generally spends about 20% of her appointment time integrating Shiatsu for pain relief and chronic injury rehabilitation.

Adding to Devin’s mystique, she has shared that part of her Shiatsu training was to work sessions literally blind folded. She had to learn – to feel – how tissue, injuries and conditions felt without being told in advance. This is truly and advanced skill set. Also Shiatsu is a “whole body approach” where someone with back pain may require work on their legs as an example. Different yes?

Devin graduated from the Canadian Therapeutic College in 2006 and is member of the CMTO. She graduated from the Shiatsu School of Canada in 2001. When she is not providing treatments at Renew You, she spends time with her two children or enjoys time outdoors.

Devin’s practice hours at Renew You are as follows:
Mondays   10:00 AM – 2:00 PM
Thursdays   10:00 AM – 7:00 PM
Fridays   10:00 AM – 6:00 PM
