"I have had chronic back, neck and shoulder pain for over 10 years. To
add to that, I've been in two terrible car accidents. I have never
found anyone who could relieve the pain and tension. Nan is simply the
The only way you will ever know is to book an
appointment. And if you try her, I guarantee you will never look back.
In my humble opinion, I think she under charges.
cares about how you feel and I will tell you this - the experience is
incredible. I know I will never look back and she will be my only
therapist going forward."
"Nan is incredible! I wanted a post-race massage and turned to Yelp - I
found all of the positive reviews and the bought the deal. She was very
flexible and easy to schedule an appointment with, as well as friendly
and informative on the phone. I run and work out quite a bit and have
been looking for someone who can really work on my knots and tender
spots. Before the massage, she did a postural and flexibility analysis
to determine problem areas. She has an integrative approach and
explains why you have tension/tenderness in areas; then she gives you
practical tips and exercises to help. I'm a huge fan and wish I would
have found her years ago."
"Today was my third session with Nan. She is the best massage therapist I
have ever had work on me....I have never had a massage
therapist take such a careful approach on assessing my concerns. This is
no routine, run-of-the-mill experience. Even if you go only once, Nan
will tailor the session to you. She also pays attention to what your
muscles tell her, and rather than ignore problem areas, she works on
them. Seems like a no-brainer, but most massages I've had in Austin have
been rather cookie-cutter. Nan has worked with me each time as an individual. Plus, she is really friendly!
to recap, Nan is strong, skilled, technically proficient, intuitive,
professional, compassionate, empathetic, and really damn good. I almost
don't know what happened to me in the first session. It was intense, and
it was good. Following it, the chronic shoulder pain (bursitis and
tendonitis related) I had been having was lifted. In today's session she
worked on my extremely uncomfortable scar tissue and I am so amazed and
grateful by the results. Nan knows how to help coax body tissues into
acting right! It is a great, tension relieving experience that leaves me
breathing easier and feeling in better shape than when I came in EVERY
TIME- and it is cumulative. Each session builds and heals more
completely. In just a few sessions I have felt results on chronic
tension related problems. Rather than hop around from masseuse to
masseuse, I highly recommend Nan for anyone looking for quality care in
"Nan is fantastic! A couple years ago I was looking for someone to do
deep tissue massage. I needed to get into a regular schedule with
someone for ongoing pain in my shoulders and neck. I tried several
places and had no luck finding someone who could even get close to the
type of work I needed. My sister recommended Nan just as she was
starting her practice so I got one of her first appointments. I knew
from the first session that this was what I was looking for. Nan does
far more than deep tissue massage. She incorporates a lot of different
techniques to address whatever issues are going on with your body. When
we started I was beginning to have numbness in my hand in addition to
my other issues and she was able to address that so I had immediate
relief. The great thing about Nan is that she teaches you so much about
what she's doing and what's going on in your body that causes pain. And
she gives homework! She's suggested stretches I can do between visits
that make a huge difference in how I'm feeling. And I can definitely
tell a difference when I have to miss an appointment. Nan is a gifted
and committed practitioner. If you are having pain, I highly recommend
you give Nan a call and see what she can do for you. It's not
relaxation massage and it's not quick fix but it does relieve pain.
You'll be happy you did."
"I was searching online for therapeutic body work in Austin, when I came
across Nan Hofer's site. I was looking for more than a deep tissue
massage which typically does not provide lasting results. I needed my
muscles and fascia to be unlocked and re-educated. Nan provides exactly
what I was looking for. She is a natural healer. Her intuitive sense
leads her to the perfect course of therapy. She has quite a few tricks
up her sleeve to help you achieve optimal results. Nan truly cares about
her patients and always goes the extra mile to help in any way she can.
She is a friendly, caring and devoted practitioner. You won't be
"Miracle worker comes to mind after a session with Nan!! Nan knows what
treatments work to cure what ails the body! Nan has provided the most
therapeutic therapy for the chronic lymph edema in my left leg. After a
session with Nan followed with K taping the lymph edema in my leg is
significantly resolved! I have seen Nan for headaches, plantar fascitis,
and post athletic events and she always provides the best therapy!!"
"I can walk again without pain! This was going to be my last try before
going under the knife and Nan really helped me. With her magic touch,
some tape, and my homework assignments, I'm out walking every day again.
There's no one else I would trust when it comes to therapeutic
massage. This is the gal for you -- look no further!"
"Me: subluxated lower spine, 3 bone spurs, vertebrae in neck reversed. I
have a physically demanding job. I work out. I have a sleep number
bed and special pillows to keep my body in line so that I don't sleep
wrong and start up the grueling process of an inflamed disc which leads
to nerve pain.
So, to counter this, I have seen the best
chiropractors in Austin, and sports therapists. They give me 3 minutes;
I give them many dollars.
I have STOPPED seeing both of them
because of Nan!!!!!! I don't know how to describe what she does during
therapy, but it works! Moving my muscles, releasing fascia...all
seeming to do more with science and the art of intuition. Most
therapists just rub your tissue and hit a few pressure points. That is
NOT what this is. I'd almost go to the level of calling her a physical
If you have the chance, and need your body to be fixed, see Nan. You are wasting your money elsewhere."
