2010-06-11 19:50:35   This is the worst place I have ever gone to for a massage. It's cheap for a reason! The therapist is uneducated - he told me many things that I looked up and found to be blatantly false. He spoke to me as if I were a child and (patronizingly) turned me away for being in too much pain (hello, that's why I want a massage!) despite my doctor recommending massage to HELP that. Avoid at all costs! It's totally worth the extra money to go see someone who is actually a professional! —HollyK

2010-07-19 22:42:45   I have had only positive, relaxing experiences at Renewing Massage and found Colin Coffey willing to focus on my specific musculoskeletal needs, tailoring my 1-hour massage to be effective for tension release and beyond my expectations. —Gen

2010-07-21 13:52:35   My experiences at Renewing Massage have been fabulous. I left relaxed, slept better, and felt great for many days after treatment! Colin is very experienced with a wide range of conditions, and is great with athletes (I always recommend him to my friends who run!). He's also intuitive and I trust his judgment about how deep of a massage I need in trouble spots. Renewing Massage is affordable and a great addition to the Rochester community! —AngP

2010-07-29 16:11:44   Colin is the best therapist there is... He is so professional and very knowledgeable. The treatment i received was reasonable and FANTASTIC!!!! Can not say enough good things about Renewing Massage —southwegdebarber

2010-11-06 19:56:49   Colin Coffey is a great massage therapist. He has a good feel for both depth and type of massage to use for a given body and condition. He is aware of what needs to be done to provide immediate pain relief and also has the knowledge and skill to provide longer-term corrective care. I appreciate his ability to recognize when his treatment may be inappropriate in a given situation; I do not see this as a negative quality in any health care professional. I have been treated by Colin and refer patients to Renewing Massage with complete confidence that they will be well cared for by Colin. —PatriciaDeJoy

2011-01-04 09:03:10   I have nothing but great things to say about Renewing Massage. As someone who is rather skeptical of Eastern medicinal practices, I assumed getting a massage once in awhile would be nice, but no big deal. Was I wrong! Having one's muscles professionally manipulated brings on a feeling of well-being & better overall health than I ever would have guessed. Colin is a wonderful massage therapist, very interested in his clients' well-being. He provides a lovely atmosphere in his convenient South Wedge office. A++. —EvaHopkins

2011-01-22 14:46:31   Colin spends time before and after each massage to assess my individual needs, and then tailors each massage to meet my needs. I leave feeling relaxed, anxiety-reduced, and stress-free. Colin is very professional and has taken time to share the rationale behind many of the procedures he uses. I trust Colin, and recommend him to friends. —EricDerby

2011-12-05 21:51:39   I had a migraine for 16 days before seeing Colin for the first time. I have always struggled with finding a good massage therapist because I do not go for a "spa" experience, but need pain relief. Colin was so knowledgable about headache and migraine relief! So only did he help to relive the constant pain I had been in for over 2 weeks, but he has helped to reduce the frequency of my migraines from 5-6 weekly to 1-2! I am so thankful that I found Renewing-Massage, I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders (literally) that I have carried for 3 years. —RachelBode

2012-10-13 09:44:11   I have gone to Colin several times to help with my anxiety & back, Colin is professional, and detail-oriented. I especially appreciated how he took time beforehand and after to explain the massage, and the medical reasoning for his treatment. I would recommend him to anyone. —EricStratton
