Hello! My name is Rachel ~ I'm a licensed massage therapist and the owner of Body/Wise Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork. As recent graduate of the Institute for Massage Education at the Kalamazoo Center for the Healing Arts, I received my license to practice massage therapy from the State of Michigan in 2015. I have been trained in a variety of bodywork modalities and enjoy helping my clients improve the quality of their health and wellness with the methods I've learned.

I chose to become a massage therapist after working for several years as a nurse in critical care and radiology. The people I have cared for have been primarily suffering from advanced stages of dis-ease. Getting to know these people and their families - and hearing from many that their lives had not gone as they'd hoped because of their illness - got me seriously thinking about the importance of preventative healthcare. I began to want to help people in a different way, more directly improving the quality of their lives for the long term.

I believe the human body is an amazing organic machine with the ability to heal itself. Day in and day out, our bodies can endure a lot of stress: physical, emotional, mental. This stress hinders the body's ability to bring itself back into balance. Massage is a wonderful tool that can help facilitate this innate healing process and bring the body closer to optimal health.

I am passionate about honoring the wisdom of the body, and I love giving massage treatments almost as much as I love receiving them! Outside of the therapy room, I enjoy playing music with The Red Sea Pedestrians (www.theredseapedestrians.com), and spending time with my awesome husband and our three fuzzy cats.
