About The Renova Center

Breck & Deb sharing "The Kiss" at Towne Center

It's a Love Story.


In 1999, when the sweetheart of the Renova Center's resident naturopath and CEO was given 3 months to live, she was not ready to be a widow, and went about the business of saving his life. She was determined not to lose her husband and soulmate. Through a combination of energy medicine, integrative science-based treatments, and prayer, he lived another 7 years.  Those treatments are the same ones found today at The Renova Center.

The Renova Center is dedicated to Willam Breck Wood.  To his life and legacy.  His parents, Bill and Anne Wood were the co-founders of William E. Wood & Associates, the number one real estate company in Virginia. Upon Bill's death, Breck and Deb joined Anne to make their company even more successful.  The agents and staff were family.  Just before Breck's death in October, 2006 they sold the company to Dick Thurmond, partner and friend.  Then Deb Wood, a PhD, ND (naturopathic doctor) formed The Renova Center as a place of healing in Breck's honor.


Everyone who comes to the center is family. That's what makes Renova different. That's what makes it great. That's what you feel when you walk through the doors.

Our Heritage


For several years, the Renova Center was the business home of Lambert T. Parker, MD, President, and Medical Director of Integrative Longevity Institute of Virginia (ILIV), and his wife Sophie Parker, MD, Cardiologist, joining Dr. Wood to bring a community blend of integrative medicine, where East meets West.

The Parkers now practice medicine at other locations but their legacy of wellness and longevity still lingers inside The Renova Center. Their congenial natures with patients and staff helped establish the current personalized approach to wellness and healthcare.  

Our Staff


The Staff has been hand-picked and trained by Zachary Schultes and Dr. Wood.  They are like-minded individuals who care about health, family, God, and country. They work hard to make sure others find real professionals with real solutions to their health issues.

Everyone at The Renova Center is dedicated to making a difference in the communities they touch, near and far. They are the BEST of the BEST.  You feel it immediately and when you leave, you wonder if you've been touched by angels.  You have.

Our Facilities


Breck Wood served in the Navy and loved our military.  Dr. Wood is a Navy brat whose Dad was a Yeoman Chief Petty Officer, who served in the Cuban Conflict, Korean Conflict, and Viet Nam War.  She also loves our military.


It's natural for Dr. Wood to work with warriors, expanding from Hampton Roads: 'Military Land,' with the Veteran Wellness Center to Alaska with the Battle Dawgs Veterans.  From sea to shining sea.  She works to find relief from the veteran signature illnesses of TBI and PTSD with her battle cry: "saving one warrior does not change the world, but to that one warrior, the world is forever changed."

Scientists, researchers, physicians, veterans, first responders, their families, and friends have a place to contribute to the art of wellness and how to heal at The Renova Center.

Our Community


The Art District of Norfolk's beautiful Ghent is our first community.  Next, we expanded to Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Suffolk, Hampton, Newport News, and finally to Alaska.


No one gets left behind.
