Take care of yourself so you can better help others.


Rachael helps athletes stay flexible, frazzled workers unwind, and holds a quiet space for the emotionally drained to relax.  She applies her 9+ years of experience to create a customized massage to the needs and wants of the individual. Whether you want to focus on structural balance to bring the body back into alignment, create a quiet space for meditation, or escape the world for a moment, there's a technique for that.  Some modalities she may integrate into a session are Neuromuscular Therapy, myofascial treatment, Swedish Massage, Indian head and neck massage, Thai Stretching Massage, and reflexology. 

Rachael's passion is passive stretch/ Thai Massage, a rhythmic full body stretching routine. This massage is done on a padded mat on the floor with the client fully clothed.  This gentle moving meditation leaves a person feeling refreshed, focused and relaxed.

"I look forward to meeting you, building a connection so we can bring ease and comfort to your body. Be kind to yourself." - Rachael
