Ruth Anne Wood

“To share my healing vision of love and beauty
through powerful writing, teaching, art and healing touch.”
–Ruth Anne Wood 1997


In addition to her rich and full life, Ruth Anne Wood is living her life vocation/ mission at Wellness Works. She began professionally helping people with aches, pains and life stresses in the mid 1990’s. After many failed specialists, Shiatsu/ acupressure was the first treatment that helped relieve mid-back pain from curvature of the spine and numbness in her right arm. She brings empathy and a desire to help clients feel their best in ever connection. In addition to massage, Ruth goes to Stratton Family Chiropractic who is straightening her spine and she has referred over a dozen grateful patients. Since May 2005. She also is swimming a mile a couple times a week at Philadelphia Sports Club.

Wanting to help others find relief from needless suffering, still in high school Ruth began her training as a Shiatsu Practitioner in her hometown of Doylestown, PA at the International School of Shiatsu. Ruth is a licensed massage therapist that offers:

  • Sports Massage

“You have a wonderful space . . . My massage was outstanding. The energy here is wonderful. Much Love” -Gloria Dodd

“Ruth, That was my best massage ever. Thanks and good luck” -Carlos Valdes

“Ruth, The work on my feet was so healing. I could feel it through my body all the way to the tingling in my head.”  -Carolyn Penta

“It’s been 3 years since I meet Ruth & thanks to her I am doing great. Ruth has helped me tremendously and I am very thankful. I can always count on her to be there. Many thanks” -Love, Dean Calveresi



Listening to her clients’ stories, she noticed people would feel great when they got off the massage table yet returned weeks later with the same aches and pains. Or sometimes they would have strong emotions around the stresses in their life. That’s when Ruth Anne Wood began offering other tools to facilitate healing and ongoing wellness and empowerment. Ruth is an award-winning writer and appears online and at special events with superstar entrepreneurs, best selling authors…

Ruth is a gifted individual who skillfully empowers me to live a life of fulfillment and joy. Ruth’s incisive insight and clear and direct feedback allows me to develop clarity and the poise of mind necessary to manifest a higher kind of life. There are things one can do with a therapist to untangle the knots of the psyche- but Scripting for Success creates new threads of consciousness that are in the present to create a vibrant future based on one’s individual thoughts, feelings, actions and efforts. -Diane B. Levitt, Writer, Mentor
