2016 February Battle for the Blood Project Final Final

2016 Feb Blood Drive

We still have lots of open appointments. We were 40 donors short in December. We have been promised by the Red Cross to have an adequate crew. The more appointments scheduled the more crew they will send.

Remember you can go on-line & pre register for your rapid pass. All that will need to be done when you get there is your vital signs & finger stick. All the paper work all ready done. This should help speed up the process for everyone.

ReNew Massage Therapy & Day Spa

ReNew Massage Therapy & Day Spa is pleased to introduce Hannah Albrecht and Holle Evert! ReNew now has 20 years of combined experience in massage therapy. Text, call, or message us on Facebook so we can help you feel better!

Hello Beloit and surrounding communities!

I am Holle Evert, a native of Republic, KS and a Belleville High School graduate. I returned to college a few years ago after my 4 daughters were all in school. I earned my massage therapy diploma from the Universal College of Healing Arts in Omaha.

I am trained in Swedish, Sports, Deep Tissue, Prenatal, Reflexology, Thai stretching, and seated chair massage. I’ve worked on all ages, from 5 to 100 years old!

I enjoy taking classes to learn new techniques. Ashiatsu is on my list for 2016. It is a barefoot massage technique using deep pressure from the therapist’s feet.

I am excited about the opportunity to join Connie and Hannah at ReNew and look forward to meeting you!

I am booking evening appointments on Mondays and Tuesdays, Daytime on Wednesdays and Fridays. Book now thru the end of March and get a 90 minute massage for the price of a 60. ($65)  Or a 60 minute for the price of a 30. ($35)

Clients of ReNew,

I am excited to be joining Connie in providing massage therapy to you here in Beloit. I am a certified massage therapist of 5 years. I have gotten some great experience including providing massage therapy to a wide range of clientele and owning a day spa in Clarence, NY, where my husband, 2 year old son and I are from. I especially enjoy giving deep tissue massage as I feel it makes such a huge difference in how you feel and are able to function afterwards! Book a 60 minute massage with me and get my introductory rate of $50 until the end of January!
