Karrie Miller, owner of RENEW You, has been a massage therapist for 12 years. She’s also certified in Fascial Stretch Therapy and LifeStretch to help people become more flexible in body, mind and spirit. She especially loves working with athletes and those with injuries or recovering from surgery.
This is her story.
“Hi there, I’m Karrie.
Fourteen years ago I injured my back shoveling snow. I didn’t feel anything at the time. Later that evening the pain was so bad I literally could not stand. I would crumple to the floor. I was terrified I would never walk again! For 2 weeks I hobbled on crutches in extreme pain—the meds weren’t working—so I started chiropractic and massage therapy. I credit the majority of my healing to massage therapy.
Later, I went back to school to get my Bachelor's in Business, but it didn’t feel right. When I found out the college I was attending had a massage therapy program, I felt like it was fate. I transferred and fell in love. I became a straight A student and graduated cum laude.
After graduation, I gained a lot of experience working for chiropractors. Shortly thereafter, I started Renew You and I’ve been happily massaging my clients ever since.
When I’m not helping people through massage and stretch, I sponsor adults in running and walking races through the CRIM Fitness Foundation. You can also find me playing with my dog Bubba, planning my next motorcycle road trip or enjoying a good book.
As the owner of RENEW You, I truly care about my clients. If they’re hurting, I’m hurting. Massage is my passion. In fact, it’s my calling.”
