When I am not giving massages I can be found raising my four kids, seven 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 sprint triathlons.

Rachel very interested in solving your issues, not just making things feel better for a time.

Rachel tailored session to my exact needs very well. She was able to earn my trust quickly with her careful, competent, and confident manner.

Explained what was going on with my muscles and what she was doing to bring long term relief.

Over the years, I have seen about 40 massage therapists. I had such chronic issues that it was important to me that a therapist was available the exact day I needed it, so I always booked a massage with whoever in town was available. I had one massage with Rachel and knew there was no other massage therapist who could understand my body so well. I told my husband “I will never see anyone else again, she is a massage therapist I am actually willing to wait for.” I’ve seen her regularly now and she has really changed my life in how much her massages help. She is also so kind and down to earth, her presence makes you feel at home. Some days I want to talk, and she is so lovely to talk to and hear from. An excellent conversationalist. Other days I don’t want to talk and she lets me sit in the comfortability of the silence. I will be very sad if she ever stops doing massage therapy!

Excellent deep tissue massage session. Rachel also demonstrated some stretches and suggested I do on my own to improve flexibility.

She gave me some stretches to hopefully help with my issues.

Took the time to talk with me to find out what my problem areas are and she identified some we didn't even talk about. She was great at working on treating my pain points.

She is the best, so knowledgeable

Rachel was the first person to believe and understand my back pain. I went to a chiropractor and a physical therapist who did not help. Rachel took the time to listen and knew what to do to start correcting the problem. Would recommend!
