"I'm not sure the English language has adequate words to describe Tove's skill as a healer. One day I hope to learn Sanskrit and I suspect that if I do I will then learn words that describe Tove's ability. Tove has helped me more than anyone else in my trauma recovery process, works on other healing as I need it, keeps my carpal tunnel syndrome in check, and is unlocking my tense back & neck muscles with her talented therapeutic massage techniques. It is extremely likely that when I'm 108 years old looking back, it will still be true that Tove has been by far the most powerful, gentle, caring, and influential healing force in my life. My gratitude that she is in my life is infinite."

"I am a very busy hairdresser and my experience in receiving regular massage therapy to address the chronic neck, shoulder, and back tensions that come with the territory have been an absolute neccessity for me in maintaining the highest standard of quality to my clientelle. I can now look forward to many years of grateful service in the years to come as well.

Upon recommendation, I began practicing Chi Gung in Zach's group. I have found his teachings to be thoughtful, personal, and infused with humor and a light touch. It has helped me to feel more grounded in my dealings with people and business. I now feel an inner energy and calmness that enables me to face each situation in life with more grace and ease. Thank you for sharing your knowlegde and wisdom."

Katy Elfstrand

"I come to Tove to thaw long-frozen feelings, to recover from childhood trauma, and to learn how to experience as many dimensions of myself as fully and consciously as I can. For over five years I have seen her every two to four weeks, sometimes even more often. She is a real ally and partner in my striving to become a more whole, sensitive, and loving human being. I recommend her to anyone and everyone, whether you're healing from trauma, want to take the next steps in your psychological and spiritual journey, or you simply want to treat yourself (or someone else) to an experience that is "deep, gentle, and  nurturing."

"I have been a client of Zach's for almost four years. I have had chronic, serious back and neck problems for decades. I have had countless experience with all manner of specialists, surgeons, physical therapy, massage therapists, chiropractors etc.  When I first came to Zach I was facing possible neck surgery and I was in pain with limited mobility . What Zach has done for me has been amazing. I am almost completely without pain and now have near normal mobility. Zach has extensive knowledge and extreme passion for how every muscle and tissue and bones and ligaments all interact and he really cares that he is improving the quality of life of each and every client. I couldn't recommend him highly enough.

Ginnie Andersen

"Due to health reasons I started to recieve massage therapy almost 20 years ago. Finding a massage therapist who knew deep muscle therapy proved difficult. When I first recieved therapy from Tove I knew I didn't need to look any further. That was in 1997. From then until I moved in 2007 I never had a reason to go to any other therapist. Tove has a gift that not many other therapists has. Aside from her deep knowledge of the human anatamy she is truly a healer who has found her calling in life. I have yet to find another therapist who can even come close to providing the relief that I have experianced under Tove's care. Whenever I return to the Twin Cities the first call I make is to Haracenter."  

Karl Dybdahl

"I asked Zach if he could check out my chronic shoulder pain that I had been struggling with for a couple years after doing some dead weight workouts.  It was difficult for me to lift my shoulder after any time I would use it for strength-engaged motion.  Zach's knowledge of deep tissue and Brennan Healing Science energy work gradually helped me remember an injury I had when I was a 4 year old.  My collarbone was broken.  After his gradual deepening work into the areas of pain, he realized that my childhood injury had not healed properly.  This seemed to be the reason why this current injury was not healing well.  His continued work allowed me to feel deep releases without causing me more pain, which no one else had been able to achieve before.  After a couple of sessions, I had considerable relief and more range of motion.  Today I can use my shoulder in strength demanding motions and not feel any pain.  Zach's background in massage, deep tissue work, Brennan Healing Science and psychotherapy has given him a unique way to help people.  His integration of these modalities is a holistic approach that I would highly recommend to anyone suffering with chronic or acute pain.  I have known Zach for many years now as a natural health therapist.  I hold him in the highest regard for his professionalism and personalized attention."

"The healing I have received from Zach Potchinsky have had a deep and profound impact on me and have touched me to the core of my being.  Zach's strength, presence and sensitivity has helped to create a deep connection between us that has truly supported me in my own healing process and journey.  Zach shares his wonderful gifts and healing skills in touching and holding the essence of another soul with grace, love, Divine light and deep humility.  I experience deep trust and sacred holding with this wonderfully generous and open hearted healer and would recommend him highly to any individual seeking to deepen connections within themselves."
