Hi everyone!  Welcome to Royal Oak Massage!  Here's a little about how I got to where I am today....


I've spent my entire life in Michigan and in my early 20's, studied business administration while working in the automotive industry.  I liked my job and the work but valued my time and freedom over being a cubicle slave, so on a whim one evening I enrolled at Irene's Myomassology Institute in Southfield, Michigan where I completed a 600 hour program and graduated in June 2003.  The course of study included Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology and elective massage courses that included Thai, Shiatsu, Prenatal, Infant, Hot Stone, Sports, Myoskeletal Alignment and Myofascial Release.  After graduation, I bounced around a bit trying to find my niche in day spas, chiropractic offices, physical therapy and massage clinics.  Once again not wanting to be stuck on someone else's schedule and 'rules', I stumbled into my own practice (a bit by accident) and I opened Royal Oak Massage in October, 2004 where, for the past 12 years, we helped to relieve the residents of the metro Detroit area (not to mention some out of state visitors) from the every day stress of life.


I am a licensed massage therapist (7501004442), board certified through the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork, a 12+ year member of Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals.  I also worked in the apprentice program at Irene's from 2004-2005.  In my spare time I enjoy traveling, photography, working out, cooking, spending time with my dogs Elliot and Cooper and pursuing my other passion as a Primal Health Coach.

Bodywork

Lokte Method Level 1

Received September 2016, Lokte Method is a connective tissue release approach to deep myofascial stretching. What is unique about this treatment is that it can be done fully clothed, and results can be achieved in minimal time. Great for a range of problems including sciatica, plantar fasciitis, low back pain, migraines, whiplash and more.

Fitness

Certified LifeStretch Instructor

Received October 2016, this unique approach to stretching gets deep into the fascial layers and works several planes of motion at once instead of traditional static stretching that only targets one area at a time.

Rebecca does a great job reading where I may have aches and pains! I feel 100% better today. She's the best!

Rebecca is wonderful about working with you on your issues, trying new things that she thinks will help and educating herself on more and different ways/levels of helping her clients. I am so glad I met her.

My leg doesn't hurt!!!
by Jan on Mar 14
Everything was great but today my fasciitis is the same. My knees are about the same but that may be because I told her the pain was on the side but today it actually seems to be on top. Not when walking but when bending or using stairs. I will definitely keep at it though. I may just need more work!

Rebecca is a pro, and her massages provide me with relief.

I'm totally sold on the Lokte method! I've had 5 half hour sessions at Royal Oak Massage with Rebecca and this method has worked faster and longer than the typical massage.It seems to pinpoint muscle pain and tension for a better determination of its location and cause. I'm just so thankful for Rebecca and there are alternative methods to help myself and others.
