Diane's Powerful Story!
“I grew up on a farm in Lewisburg PA and I have eight siblings, 6 brothers and 2 sisters. I graduated from Lycoming College with a BA in Accounting. I’ve lived in State College for 30 years and am in the process of moving to Altoona for the next chapter in my life!
After completing my radiation treatments for Breast Cancer years ago, I felt I needed to do something to help people. After receiving massages during that time, I decided to explore the option of becoming a massage therapist. In 2006, I enrolled in the weekend program at Mt. Nittany Institute of Natural Health and after completing the 750 hour program, I graduated in the spring of 2008 with my massage therapy license so I am a Licensed Massage Therapist in the State of Pennsylvania!
Over the years I have expanded my knowledge by learning Lymph Drainage and Cranial Sacral techniques as well as Cupping last year. Helping individuals relax and destress with massage therapy is my passion. I am very excited to be able to offer my services at Revival Fitness and Rehab and can’t wait to meet you all!”

Frequently Asked Questions
What do I do during a massage treatment?
Make yourself comfortable. If your therapist wants you to adjust your position, she/he will either move you or will ask you to move what is needed. Otherwise, change your position anytime to make yourself more comfortable.
Many people close their eyes and relax completely during a session; others prefer to talk. It's up to you. It is your massage, and whatever feels natural to you is the best way to relax. Do not hesitate to ask questions at any time.
How long will the massage last?
The average full-body massage treatment lasts approximately one hour. A half-hour appointment only allows time for a partial massage session, such as neck and shoulders, back or legs and feet. Many people prefer a 60 to 90-minute session for optimal relaxation. Always allow relaxation time prior to and after the session.
How can I set up an appointment?
You can set up an appointment very easily by calling, texting, or emailing Diane directly at 814-404-4553 and Diane.Crebs@gmail.com. If you have to leave a voicemail, Diane guarantees a call back within 24 hours on weekdays.
How soon can I get in for my first appointment?
Immediately! Depending on the schedule and time of day, Diane could potentially see you today. Otherwise, it's very possible to get seen within the next week or two.
Do I have to be completely undressed?
You should undress to the level you are comfortable. For a full body massage, most get completely undressed. However, if you will be more comfortable during the session if you leave your underwear on, that's fine. The therapist will work around the clothes you left on as best as she can.
Your massage therapist will give you privacy to undress and get comfortable on the table before the session starts and then privacy at the end to put your clothes back on.
Do I have to cover myself with a sheet or towel?
This is known as draping and depends on the therapist and in some cases, the law. The vast majority of therapists will insist on draping, as does Jenn. Once you are undressed and on the table under the drape, the therapist will only uncover the part of your body being worked on.
The genitals (women and men) and breasts (women) will always remain covered. If the therapist is going to work on a woman's abdomen, a second towel or sheet will be used to cover the breasts so the main sheet or towel can be moved to expose the abdomen.
Will the massage hurt?
This depends on the type of massage and the depth of the strokes. A light, relaxing massage that doesn't probe very deep into the muscles, shouldn't hurt. With that being said, there is a 'feels good' hurt and an 'ouch, stop it' hurt. A good massage, even a really deep tissue massage, should always stay in the 'feels good' hurt range.
Pain can be an indication that the muscle is possibly injured or inflamed and pressure should be adjusted. Also, pain can cause you to tighten up and negate the relaxing effects of the massage. The most effective and deepest massage always works with your body's natural response, not against it.
What should I expect during my first message therapy visit?
How often should I get a massage?
This answer varies from person to person. Regardless, we definitely advocate for consistent maintenance at the very least. If you are just looking for occasional relaxation, then a session every 3-6 weeks may be fine for you.
However, if you are looking to address a specific condition, then it is recommended to go more frequently at first, perhaps 1 or 2 times per week for the first month and then slowly taper down to a maintenance schedule. Sometimes more frequent 30-minute sessions can be effective until your goals are met and a maintenance schedule is in place.
Frequency of sessions should be discussed with your massage therapist after your treatment when she has a better hands-on understanding of your particular muscular issues.
Can I talk during my session?
In many instances, people may feel more relaxed starting off talking, and as the massage progresses, enter quiet states of relaxation.
How will I feel after my massage treatment?
Most people feel very relaxed after their massage. Some experience a significant decrease or freedom from long-term aches and pains. Many feel a little slowed down for a short period and then notice an increase of energy, heightened awareness and increased productivity which can last for days. And many report better sleep at night following the massage!
If you received a deep massage, you may be slightly sore the next day - much like a good workout at the gym. Sometimes a hot shower, or a soak in the tub can ease this soreness.
After your session you should increase your water intake a bit. Just a glass or two more than normal is usually fine. This helps keep your body's tissues hydrated and healthy.
What kind of music can I listen to during?
While many therapists play slower, quieter, 'new age' type music, you can choose to have different music or no music at all. Studies have shown that music at under 60 beats-per-minute has a calming, relaxing effect on the body and therefore can enhance your experience.
However, while this may be true, any music you like to listen to while you relax can be listened to while you get a massage. If it relaxes you and you enjoy it at home, why wouldn't it do the same during your treatment? Ask your therapist what music he/she has to offer and she'll be sure to put it on for you! Some clients request waterfalls, some request acoustic music, and some request fun or heavier music like Metallica. Whatever you want!
Am I required to tip the massage therapist?
You are absolutely NEVER required to tip after massage sessions, nor do we expect you to. We ask that you please don't feel obligated to leave a tip. Tipping is simply your choice! Thank you for even considering it.
