" We came to find HVBW on a weekend trip to the Catskills. My wife and I were looking for a quaint, relaxing place to have a massage treatment after a beautiful and exhausting hike through the mountains. We found Hudson Valley Body Works to be extremely accommodating. After arriving we immediately felt comfortable in the space and we were greeted by 2 very personable therapists who made our experience top notch! Michelle and Ashley took the time to sit down and talk to us about what we were experiencing and really tailored our massages to our needs for that day. The massages were one of the best we have had and we are well seasoned travelers who have experienced many massage sessions throughout the years. We never felt like we were just a number and left feeling great! They are extremely knowledgeable about the body and very intuitive on how to address certain issues. They incorporated stretching as well as heated towels to really make our bodies unwind. We love this little spot and will continue to come back."

" Michelle is quite simply - the best. Not only skilled and knowledgeable, but kind and compassionate as well. Cannot recommend Hudson Valley Bodyworks strongly enough. You'll be glad you did."
"My children gave me a gift certificate and I had the pleasure of using it a couple of weeks ago. Ashley did an awesome job with my one hour massage. I enjoyed our conversation prior to the massage and the massage itself is just what I needed. I loved it so much that I decided my daughter would benefit from one as well. I will be scheduling another appointment soon... "
"If you are looking for total satisfaction out of a massage therapist, then Hudson Valley Body Works is the place to go. I've been a repeat client for almost a year now. This is after going to many different places that say they offer the same service. I've had the pleasure of being worked on from both Michelle and Ashley. I'm a contractor by trade. I've beaten my body up over the years and these ladies keep me up right and going. The knowledge these ladies have of their profession, and the care of which they work on me is platinum standard. Every time I go in I'm asked if there is any new issues they should know about. Also recently, my back went out on a job. Michelle called me back as soon as she received my message. 2 days later I was off to build a house out of state in just 2 weeks. The fact I could even entertain the thought of doing that is amazing, and I did. I hands down credit Michelle for making that possible. If you want a professional who cares about their patients with long lasting results, you should choose Hudson Valley Body Works."
"Michelle, I would have a weekly massage if able, as your style, and special personal varieties of touch are very healing to my pain laden body. You are a primary member of my healing team and I have infinite gratitude for your skill, intuition and care. Please use my full and last name as I wish for others to benefit as I have done and will continue to do in the future."

"Ashley is the best! I am a fellow Massage Therapist. Of all of the MT's I have seen, Ashley is the only one I will go to. I have back issues (severe pain, flare ups, etc) and if it weren't for my weekly sessions with Ashley, I wouldn't be able to get out of bed, let alone do what I love (massage, help others, flip houses, landscape, etc). She saves me on a regular basis. I am so thankful for her! She has rehabilitated me in very hard times, keeps me strong and manages my pain. Her hands are intuitive and her treatments are highly effective"
" I have been working with massage therapist Michelle Renar for several years now and have recommended her to family and friends. Her offices have always exuded a spa experience; they are quiet, clean, and comfortable. Michelle is able to provide several massage therapies; I've gotten kinks out of my neck, stretched out on her inversion table and received a relaxing massage. Michelle's use of hot stones and aromatherapy are added bonuses. This is the place to go if you've never had a massage or you want to keep receiving wonderful treatment."
"I have seen more than a dozen massage therapists over the years, and I can't express how happy I am to have found Michelle. The combination of her strong intuitive connection to what my body needs, her mastery of a range of techniques and her highly refined sensibilities, I mean, wow, you really can't ask for more in a massage therapist. Thank you."
"After a massage by Michelle I can only say that I am totally de-stressed and my back and leg pain has decreased. She listens to how you are feeling the day of the massage and makes adjustments to the massage as needed. Fantastic experience!"
"We used to believe massage was for people who had money to treat themselves. Since meeting Michelle and going to HVBW, we have come to view it as a wonderful and affordable way to relax. As well as help deal with all the aches and pains we get. Craig hurt his back two weeks ago at work and I immediately called Michelle for an appointment. He felt better after the massage. Its good to know HVBW is there and we trust Michelle completely. Thank you so much,"
Judy and Craig
"I've been going to Michelle/HVBW for about 2 years and have been extremely
satisfied with the deep tissue therapy I have received. Michelle is always attentive,
thorough and professional."
"An hour with Michelle is an hour in peace. She is capable of
either a deep relaxing massage or a therapeutic massage addressing
muscle injury or discomfort. Her knowledge of muscle structure is first rate"
