Pain Relief and Pelvic Wellness Specialist

How I became a Massage Therapist and how I can help you!
I have been massaging for literally longer than I can remember (my Abuela tells me stories of me going around giving back and foot massages whenever we had company), so I became a massage therapist because I have always been one.  I love it and can thing of nothing I would rather do!

How I became a Massage Therapist and how I can help you!
I have been massaging for literally longer than I can remember (my Abuela tells me stories of me going around giving back and foot massages whenever we had company), so I became a massage therapist because I have always been one.  I love it and can thing of nothing I would rather do!
I have dedicated myself to becoming an expert in pain relief and pelvic floor wellness.  I use deep, yet gentle techniques to follow your patterns of compensation and unwind the tension to bring you lasting results.  Conditions I am specially apt at helping are
Low Back Pain
Sciatica
PMS Symptoms
Menopausal Symptoms
Pelvic Pain
Vaginal Pain
Groin Pain
Hip Pain
Incontinence
Migraines
Headaches

Pain makes sense as a massage focus, but why pelvic dysfunction you ask?
At the age of seventeen, I began to suffer from vaginal and pelvic pain (way to start off light, I know).  I dealt with that embarrassing discomfort, accepting it an irreversible part of my life, until I was 23 at which point I decided that I deserved better.  For the next two years, I went to doctors and psychologists and physical therapists at least once a week every week.  Nothing really helped.  It wasn't until I incorporated massage and energy work that I began to see results.  Today, I am completely pain-free!
As I went through this process, I heard more and more stories of women who went through similar ordeals - trying everything to no avail - and realized that I wanted to help those women the same sense of empowerment and control I found when I resolved my pelvic floor dysfunction.

Important things to know about me as your therapist:
1) I like puzzles!  I like to find the root causes of problems and help you to fix them.  Often this means that it is impossible to fix that pain you've had in your shoulder for the past 30 years in one session, but you can count on me to make
2) I want you to get better as fast as possible so you can get back to your world.  I want for you to never *have* to come in to see me again.  (Though hopefully you'll want to come back for maintenance because you love my massage so much ;-D)  So when I recommend a frequency and length for your massage protocol, it's because that's what I assess to be what you need to reach your pain-free/stress-free/whatever-free goals as quickly as you want.
3) I love to hear your feedback!  No matter how intuitive my hands are, no matter how well I listen to what your muscles are saying, no one will ever know what you feel better than you.  If something feels really good, I want to know so we can keep on that track.  If something hurts or doesn't feel good, really let me know so we can try something different.  You're not offending me or hurting my feelings; you're helping me give you the massage you need.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Liz on Jun 29
Rhiannon is an extremely knowledgable specialist in her field. She has a great calming energy that makes her approachable and easy to talk to. Her therapy was relaxing and therapeutic at the same time. I highly recommend her for treatment of women alignment and chronic pain.

Rhiannon was very professional, knowledgeable, attentive, caring, and skilled. I thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful massage from her, and she helped eliminate some of my pain with just a few modifications!

Always on point with what my body needs, she always understands what my body needs for the session and really listens to me as well.

Rhiannon was incredibly professional and knowledgeable, and I felt better than I have in years once our session was finished.

Very thorough, relaxing, and enjoyable

The closest I can come to a negative would be that I wish it was longer. I always enjoy the massages I receive from Rhiannon. She puts her soul into her work and it shows its self through the improvements in the way my muscles feel. It is great to have her as my massage therapist. I highly recommend her.

I had my first massage Rhiannon yesterday & it definitely will not be my last! She is a real professional and there is definitely some magic in those hands! Rhiannon made me feel comfortable immediately discussing my problem areas & expectations of our session. I left feeling great, my expectations were exceeded, and I’m already looking forward to my next appointment. I highly recommend Rhiannon for a great, professional massage.

Amazing experience! Rhiannon has a compassionate nature and listened to my concerns of neck and lower back pain. She was able to work on those areas without any discomfort. I felt so much better after the massage. I would highly recommend Rhiannon.

Rhiannon is great and she makes you completely relaxed. She seems to know all the pressure spots that are bothering you and adjusts them to make you feel less pressure and aches.
