Michael Rende, OTR
Michael graduated from Loma Linda University in 1995 with a Bachelors’ Degree in Occupational Therapy. Enhancing his interest in complimentary and integrative medicine, Michael was able to fulfill clinical requirements with both traditional and non-traditional internships gaining valuable perspectives and insights into various healing models. Michael incorporated these insights while treating in numerous settings from inpatient and acute rehab, skilled nursing, home health and both hospital based and private outpatient clinics.
In 1998, Michael attended his first John F. Barnes Myofascial Release seminar and found the “missing link” in integrating his education and prior insights with everyday practice. Michael received extensive Myofascial Release training reaching Instructor status and concurrently co-founded Integrative Health Services Outpatient Clinic in the Los Angeles Area.
Michael moved to Austin in 2003 to join the gifted HOPT team. Michael is currently developing a sport fitness program at HOPT under the direction of Titleist Performance Institute where he holds the qualification of “TPI Certified Medical Professional”.
