Everybody needs a little "R & R"

I have been a licensed massage therapist since February 2009.  I can remember being in 3rd grade and massaging my teachers.  I have always been passionate about natural healing.  I truly believe the body can heal itself and massage therapy can help get there faster.  
One of my favorite testimonies from a client is that with regular massage with me, he was able to avoid having shoulder surgery.  He was finally able to throw the ball for his dog again. Another is that a client was able to come ...

Notable Experiences

Bodywork
Craniosacral Therapy
I received my certificate in Craniosacral Therapy in 2012. CST is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system - comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.
Chair Massage
Chair Massage is a style of seated massage that is typically short -- 10 or 15 minutes -- and focuses on your back, shoulders and neck and arms. Chair massage is done over clothes and doesn't require any massage oil. I have performed Chair Massage an many events. I first volunteered for chair massage at the Titans' games while I was in Massage school. I have been a part of the Audiomasters Golf Tournament (providing chair massage at hole 4) for 5 years. My chair is easily transported, which means you could receive this service at my office or yours!
Lomi Lomi
This Hawaiian head to toe continuous touch massage rejuvenates the mind, body, and spirit by removing energy blockages. This massage technique takes a minimalist approach to draping on table and your body with towels.
Hot Stone Massage
We use the "Basalt Lava Stones" on the back to create a moist heat to calm the nervous system, relieve tight and sore muscles, and relieve stress!
Pregnancy
We use the "Prego Pillow" so that you can lay safely and comfortably without having to move around a lot. Recommended once a month for an easier delivery.
Reiki
An ancient energy healing method that improves health by restoring balance and harmony to the mind/body/spirit. A Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive.
Myoskeletal Alignment
Myo-skeletal Alignment Therapy is a type of bodywork often integrated with massage sessions manipulating muscles, fascia and skeletal systems with the goal of promoting musculo-skeletal health. The musculo-skeletal system when weakened produces stress in the neck and back which contributes to tight and stressed muscles causing pain and limited freedom of movement. This is turn leads to stiffness and posture problems which sometimes create an endless cycle of pain.
Cupping Methods
Cupping massage (as seen on the 2016 summer Olympics) is technique that has been used for about 5000 years. By using a vacuum technique to create a "negative" pressure, there is increased circulation, blood flow, more oxygen to the muscles; all which help to break down knots, scar tissue, relieve muscle tension. Client's often experience a "sedating effect" and typically sleep very well that night. (Not to mention it feels great) It is a suction on the skin, so there is potential marks to be left. I like to call them "Cup Kisses". Usually these marks will go away within the week.

Been coming to see Rachel for almost 8 years now! Love her and the entire staff. I've tried out other massage places, but always seem to find my way back to Rachel. Plus it's nice to support a local business :)

Rachel has done my massages for a couple of years now and she is very professional and gives an excellent massage. I feel like a new person when I walk out. She gives just the right amount of pressure and listens to what my needs are for that visit.

I love when Rachel places a heating pad on the table in the colder months. I love heat and as cold as it has been, it feels good to lie down on warm sheets. Very soothing. Plus, the massage is always great!
