I am a Holland based therapist with a certification in massage therapy from IHSI Institute of Massage, and am licensed by the state of Michigan. I also hold certifications in personal training and holistic nutrition. My favorite type of treatment to give is one that is a blend of techniques that I customize to best suit the goals and person on the table. My style includes technique heavily influenced by Tui Na (chinese massage) and manual therapy, as well as sports, rehabilitative, deep tissue, joint movement, pre and post surgery, and swedish massage skills. I use my personal training and nutrition background to create wellness plans that give clients the skills and knowledge to be active partners in their health and wellness.

When I am not giving massages I can be found raising my four kids, eleven chickens, and one cat, all while I successfully kill the plants in my garden. I have a very old hobby in playing cello, and a newer one in racing triathlons.

Personally, I have experienced the pains that accompany serious disease and the pains that accompany a full, active, busy life. My goal is to provide massage that will help you live the fullest life possible.

Rachel was great. Worked on my shoulders as requested with great success.
by Todd on Dec 15
Rachel did a fantastic job -- listened closely to where I had back and leg pain, and then did an amazing job of doing relieving deep tissue work. I have been to several massage therapists in town, and Rachel is now my favorite!

I sensed that Rachel is very knowledgeable in her field. She detected my issues causing the back/shoulder pain and effectively worked away the soreness I experienced before coming in. I left feeling much more relaxed and balanced. I highly recommend Rachel for her knowledge of medical massage!

This was my first time meeting with Rachel as I have been going to Sarah for massage for a few months (and Sarah's great by the way!). I wanted to see Rachel to get advice regarding my osteoarthritis and rounded shoulders problem. We talked a lot about nutrition and she also gave me some simple but effective stretches/exercises to do daily. Rachel seemed very professional, smart and interested in helping me with my problems. The 90 minutes were very well spent. I hope to check back in with her in a few months to show her some results! I highly recommend a visit to Rachel!

I thought it was great that Rachel took time out to understand what my issues were, and addressed each one of them. I appreciate that she informed me of what she was finding along the way as far as knots or constrictions. She gave me some great advice, the stretching was awesome. Would definitely recommend her.

One of the best massages I have had! Rachel is very passionate and thorough and it shows in her attention to detail when she is working on you! She strives to not only leave you feeling amazing when you walk out but also tries to find the root cause of that pain and correct it so you can have prolonged relief! I would highly recommend Rachel!
