Rebecca is a native Hoosier, who graduated from the Indiana College of Sports and Medical Massage (now Indiana Wellness College) in 2015 after hitting the pause button on a decades-long journalism career. While in Brazil for the 2014 World Cup, deep thoughts began circulating about how massage therapy could work to promote health and balance in others' lives while at the same time fostering personal wellness improvements. Now, with more than five years in practice, the move toward health and balance has paid dividends many times over. Regular clients cover a vast range of backgrounds — surgeons and scientists, pro athletes, senior citizens, chefs, executives and lots of everyday people who benefit from taking time for their wellness. Rebecca's technique uses a Swedish base and incorporates awareness of trigger points, acupoints, assisted stretching and fascial integrity, as well as deep tissue and sports techniques. While massage often feels like a luxury, Rebecca is of the firm belief that massage is a right. She is happy to help her clients exercise that right — every 2-6 weeks for the optimum wellness.

Licensed Massage Therapist

Since beginning my practice in 2015, I've performed thousands of customized, therapeutic massages to a wide variety of clientele from athletes and office workers to students and senior citizens. I build on a classic Swedish base, drawing from targeted trigger point work, manipulation of acupoints and assisted stretching. I also regularly use hot stones and aromatherapy. My therapies often work to help clients relax, revitalize and relieve pain. I'm also used to helping with administrative duties, conducting/recording initial client interviews, determining therapy goals and updating the studio database with SOAP notes and additional information. I also enjoy using social media to build awareness of massage therapy.

Rebecca does an AWESOME job as I had a hip replacement done a year ago and she has been an integral part in my Physical Therapy and recovery.

Honesty about the extent of the work needed to be done and how much time I should go for. Use of heat to soften my tissues.

I can think of literally nothing more or better that Rebecca could do to improve the massage experience. She's professional, but warm, and highly skilled. My spouse and I are very happy to have found her!

Rebecca is incredible! I've gone to her for three years and will never go to anyone else in Indy. She's helped me nearly cure my migraines and was a dream when I was pregnant, easing aches and pains. My body is happy when she works on it. She's kind, caring and truly is invested in my health and ensuring I'm improving with each visit. Investing in Rebecca's capable hands and heart is time and money well spent. Book with her now!

Rebecca is amazing and also listens carefully to my areas of concern! I always walk out feeling like a new person!!

Rebecca has consistently been a highlight of my month throughout a tough emotional and physical journey of graduate school. She uses multiple techniques and always checks in with goals/injuries for each session. She mixes lovely aroma-therapies and her massages are out of this world! She is consistently expanding her practice and studying the body and new methods. I cannot say enough great things about her. Would highly recommend everyone get a massage from Rebecca.
