My dynamic, invigorating and yet relaxing bodywork includes deep tissue massage and combines passive stretching with elements from Thai yoga massage and partner yoga.
Since the massage is performed on floor mats, I will use my body as a lever to move, twist, fold or hold your body or body parts lubricating and mobilizing joints.
I can still massage with my hands, arms, knees or feet at the same time. It is therapeutic and it can provide relief from stress..., chronic pain and anxiety.

Please be aware that there is more body movement than in a regular massage.
I believe it is important that the receiver and the giver be in sync during breathing as we move through the session to connect on a physical as well as on a spiritual level.

Due to the abundance of held positions and postures and the slow speed of stretching, I strongly recommend booking my hansmassage signature session as a 2-hour long appointment.

What distinguishes me from many other wellness masseurs in New York city is that I am a NYS licensed and Board-certified massage therapist and bring 1,250 training hours with me in anatomy, physiology and applied kinesiology apart from several other massage modalities and I am one of few established massage therapists that does also house visits.

I've been a regular customer of Hans for a year now and from my first session till my most recent he has been a saving grace for me. He is professional, attentive and intuitive to what my body needs in a session. I asked him to include stretches and he's incorporated them in every massage, even surprising me with some no other LMT has done on me. He responds to inquiries in a timely manner and follows up the day after the session to see how you’re doing. I'm so glad our paths crossed. Give him a try, you won't be disappointed.

It has been my good fortune to have been able to receive amazing massage from Hans for many years. I also am a massage therapist for over thirty years and have received countless massages. Hans is one of the most gifted practitioners I have experienced. With him massage is almost a form of art. His skills and knowledge of one's body continues to surprise and amaze me. He is thorough and intuitive. It is no exaggeration to say I feel as if every aspect of my being is affected during our sessions together.
I am incredibly grateful for every single massage, and give him the highest of recommendations.

Hi Hans-Joerg,
Thank you for your thoughtful card. The reason I recommended you is because there is no one I know who gives a better massage than you! You are superb at what you do.
Thank you for your note.

Hans-Joerg has an intuitive sense of my body, and each week the experience has been unique. I strongly recommend a two hour session while at the same time I have been enjoying a one hour session while recovering from an illness. At first I admired Hans-Joerg's techniques that I saw evolving each week as he became more familiar with my body, but now I am much more aware of how my body changes each week and how this talented man quckily recognizes and identifies these changes and then adapts his skills to my body's particular needs. It has been a remarkable and healing experience.

I have been receiving massage and body work weekly from Hans-Joerg Renner for for the last 4 years and have recommended him to many friends. They, too, have been delighted to experience his work.

Hans was absolutely wonderful! He was hired for 2 days at our production company as a gift from our boss to the employees, giving each person a 30-minute massage, but 30 minutes felt too short as Hans relaxed and stretched us that felt was relieving and made us forget about work for all those 30 minutes. Everyone felt comfortable and relaxed as Hans made an environment so soothing. Thank you again Hans for the wonderful time, you spent with us!

As a regular client of Hans-Joerg, I can attest to his professionalism and versatility as a massage therapist. He can address a specific complaint or symptom — a tight hamstring, a cramping quadricep, a trigger point in the upper back — with immediate results. He also has an eye for the bigger picture and can tackle long-term goals such as increased flexibility and suppleness. It is also to great advantage that, when lower back pain prevents travelling to his studio, he is willing to offer a home visit. He possesses a remarkable intuitive capacity to read the body and to work with both strength and finesse in an atmosphere of trust to promote healing and natural equilibrium. Over and over again, I’ve been impressed by the depth of his work and the breadth of his expertise, including techniques from a number of different trainings and styles of massage.

Highly recommended by a friend, Hans-Joerg's massage surpassed all expectations. This was my first time having a massage that combined Thai massage with other modalities. I highly recommend it. The use of stretching and massage was highly beneficial. The results were so positive I signed up for a followup session which I had today. The second time was even better than the first. Hans-Joerg is able to read your body and supply the right combination of massage modalities to ensure a successful experience. Can't recommend him highly enough.
