My first experience with a new therapist; she was professional and very competent and i definitely will return; i think the next session i'll be better equiped to give her an 'amazing' in term of results. So far, so good. Highly recommended.

Rachel did a fantastic job! I have a herniated disc which has caused a lot of neck, shoulder and upper back pain. My left side was also very knotted. She was able to work it out thoroughly and without pain afterwards - a first for me. HIGHLY recommend Rachel!
