The Birth of NORSPRING
NORSPRING Center for Rejuvenation was founded in 2017 in Chattanooga, TN by a group of health and business professionals with one common goal, offering new methods for approaching overall health and wellness, that would appeal to a wide range of people. Our goal is to provide complete whole body rejuvenation through innovative therapies, to our clients. These therapies can offer our clients advanced and effective ways to use the natural recovery power of our bodies.
NORSPRING’s innovative therapies will enhance wellbeing through improved performance, increased vitality and overall revitalization.
The NORSPRING name was born from the idea of hygge and the renewal of life in the springtime. Hygge — pronounced, "hoo-gah" — broadly means an approach to living that embraces positivity and enjoyment of everyday experiences, said to be core concepts of attitudes to life in the Nordic region. Hygge is the idea that even in the cold Norwegian winters, Norwegians experience warmth and coziness in their homes. This is the feeling we hope our clients feel when they experience our NORSPRING facility as well as a renewed vitality from experiencing our variety of therapies.
