Awaken Your Inner Healer

I’m a born healer, space holder, and seeker of wisdom. I’ve explored a variety of different traditional healing modalities and have found my strengths in Yoga, Thai bodywork, Astral Meditation, and Bowen Technique. In 2012, I completed a 500hr yoga teacher training that included a Thai yoga massage training. Thai massage showed me how human touch can comfort and heal both physical and emotional wounds. In 2016, I became a licensed massage therapist, graduating from a 650-hour massage program ...

I’m a born healer, space holder, and seeker of wisdom. I’ve explored a variety of different traditional healing modalities and have found my strengths in Yoga, Thai bodywork, Astral Meditation, and Bowen Technique. In 2012, I completed a 500hr yoga teacher training that included a Thai yoga massage training. Thai massage showed me how human touch can comfort and heal both physical and emotional wounds. In 2016, I became a licensed massage therapist, graduating from a 650-hour massage program and opened my own practice in Los Angeles. I traveled to Thailand twice to further my studies in Thai Massage and Thai Traditional Medicine. Most recently, I live in Portland, Oregon and my work has returned to the energetics of the body with training in Bowen Technique. 


The goal of my work is to help people find inner peace with themselves and in difficult life situations. Clients report experiencing deep reassurance and connection and often describe being in an altered or euphoric state during our sessions. I show clients how to look for answers by going inward instead of grasping for things outside of themselves. With yoga, meditation, and bodywork, my work has always been formulated to help people experience the astral plane and embrace their Higher Self where they shed all limiting beliefs and cultural conditioning and where they become one with the Universe. I keep returning to the wisdom that we have everything we need inside of us. The journey becomes a quest to unlock the Truths already embedded in our cells.


Since returning to Portland, I’m loving re-establishing myself in my community through my work and through creating Portland Moon Sisters. Moon Sisters grew out of my deep desire to build community among inspired, soulful women, and the belief that sisterhood can help women heal soul wounds, reclaim their feminine power, and unlock deep self-respect and self-love. We come together every New Moon to immerse in the energy of sisterhood and unify our intentions around a theme of transformation. Together, we create a powerful presence to break out of our culture’s ingrained behavioral molds of competition and divisiveness, replacing them instead with connectedness and support. Moon Sisters has aligned me with my soul’s path and purpose of teaching.

Thank you so much, Rachel! My bloating greatly decreased and I felt good and am still feeling pretty good and strong. The gut is the second brain truly resonated with me!

Rachel's massage was very different from other massages I've had. I really appreciated it because it was focused completely on my needs--the reasons I came that day. It was so helpful!
