Hi, my name is Renee French and I'm here at Practical Massage Therapy in Nashville, Tennessee, in the 12-South neighborhood. I'm from Knoxville, TN, and moved to Nashville in 1999, where I started practicing massage therapy. I started my massage business by offering chair massage at Wild Oats a couple days a week, and slowly built a massage practice from there. In 2006 I graduated from the Kripalu School of Ayurvedic as an Ayurvedic Consultant, and now incorporate that into my business. I believe in cultivating a positive attitude about life and also running my business with that same positive attitude. Here at Practical Massage Therapy we believe that massage therapy is an important part to a healthy lifestyle, and I'm going to be talking about massage therapy.
