Kim Weeks-Newman and Dale Newman started The Massage Clinic, Inc. in January 1999. Shortly after opening we began focusing on injury treatment and recovery from accidents. In 2001 we added a second location at 3003 W Casino Rd Everett, WA 98203 working exclusively with workplace injuries. Our third location at 8th and Park Renton, WA 98057 was opened in 2003 also working exclusively on labor and industries claims.
In 2004 we started working on an onsite massage program to reduce workers pain before they opened a workers compensation claim. We found that when we were able to treat employees early after the onset of an injury the often did not need to open an L&I claim. According to OSHA massage therapy is considered first aid and is not recordable as a workplace injury.
September 7th 2010 The Massage Clinic moved to 4322 Rucker Ave Everett, WA 98203. The building is pictured below.
Our Massage Therapists:
Kim Newman MA00011993
My name is Kim Newman, I started The Massage Clinic, Inc. in January 1999 with Dale Newman. I decided to go to massage school my sophomore year of high school after completing a training course to become a nurses aid. I found massage was a great way to help people have a better quality of life. In September of 1997 I enrolled with Seattle Massage School in a 1080 hour course. In 2002 I completed my advanced training in medical massage. Watching people come from a place of pain and dysfunction to being pain free is the greatest part of what we do.
I have always lived in Washington and feel it is the perfect place with the mild weather, mountains and ocean all within a few hours drive. On nice days, I like to go camping, boating, and fishing with my husband and son..
Renee Leshan MA00024492
I decided on a career in massage as my method of making a positive impact on the world one person at a time. I graduated from the Florida School of Massage in July 2005. Since graduating, I have been working both in private practice and as an employee across the country in Florida, Wyoming, Idaho and as of May 2009, in Washington.
I started working for The Massage Clinic Onsite Occupational Division in Renton in September 2009. There I find great satisfaction in helping my patients recover from their injuries, and regain function and comfort in their bodies. I also continue to practice privately in Seattle. My specialties include Sports Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Injury Treatment and Prevention, Integrated Massage and Thai Massage. My main goal is to help people have a better quality of life.
In my spare time, I love being active outside in the mountains and on the water. I also enjoy exploring all that my new home town has to offer.
