This too shall pass

Massage has become a passion for me that I never realized was there.  Having worked in the mental health field for 10 years, I have always been mystified in how the body and mind work both with and against each other.  I decided to take a break from mental health in 2015 and began studying at The Bodhi Tree Center for Healing Arts in Carson City, NV.  Since practicing massage, I have become even more curious to how the mind and body are connected and the individualized needs we all have for l...

Massage has become a passion for me that I never realized was there.  Having worked in the mental health field for 10 years, I have always been mystified in how the body and mind work both with and against each other.  I decided to take a break from mental health in 2015 and began studying at The Bodhi Tree Center for Healing Arts in Carson City, NV.  Since practicing massage, I have become even more curious to how the mind and body are connected and the individualized needs we all have for living a balanced life.

My specialty is balancing the body through relaxing the muscles and nervous system, creating a mind/body balance that often gets unraveled due to high stress and little down time.  Whether the imbalance stems from high work stress and burn out, family and relationship conflict, mental health concerns or life in general, balancing is essential to refilling an empty cup and allowing someone else to take care of YOU.  

Pain itself is stressful and the massages you receive will be tailored to your needs and pain level.  Each client is briefly interviewed before sessions to assess pain complaints and get an overview of what life is throwing at you, if you choose to share.  The goal each session is to leave you feeling refreshed and in less pain or discomfort than when you arrived. Therapeutic massage is offered to pinpoint areas of pain & discomfort by use of deep tissue and sports style massage modalities.  Balancing massage is available to those who need to relax and balance out their minds and energy.  If you are uncomfortable with touch or getting undressed (or are just interested in energy balancing), Reiki is available to realign your chakras and start fresh.
 
I decided to open my own practice in order to give my clients the attention and focus they deserve without shortcuts. I would love to get to know you and hear your story, though we can keep it short and sweet as well, if that is what you prefer.  

I look forward to healing with you.

Reiki

Use of universal Reiki energy to allow new energy to move out old, stagnant energy that no longer serves you. Reiki allows new energy to flow and allow healing, relaxation and balance better take place in the body and psyche.

Cupping Methods

Cupping used as a tool for deep tissue techniques. Silicone cups are used to either glide over and soften fascia or left in place (static) as a means to unwind trigger points and adhesions (knots).

Therapeutic Massage

Use of specialized techniques designed to relax and rehab old injuries or chronic pain. From, torticolis (stiff neck), frozen shoulder, low back pain, sciatica, to plantar fasciitis and much more, therapeutic massage addresses non surgical methods of relieving pain. Massage therapists are not doctors and cannot assess the body as a medical professional. It is important to receive proper diagnosis to make sure therapeutic massage is right for your body.

Rachel’s ability to locate the areas where my pain or discomfort is originating from is amazing. I highly recommend Kinetic Karma to anyone with stiffness or pain, I have not had a sciatic nerve flare up since I’ve been going to see her. Amazing.

Rachel is so amazing I honestly used to get a lot of Massages and they were great. Rachel however I phenomenal. She has a soft or strong firm touch as necessary, she communicates everything to you after or while your massage is going on depending on the need. I am feeling so much better.
