Welcome to Intentions! My name is Rachel Bonesteel and I am a New York State Licensed Massage Therapist. I am a graduate of the Mildred Elley massage program in 2011 and  I have been an X Ray and MRI Technologist for over 25 years specializing in Orthopedics.

I specialize in massage therapy for pain management, chronic stress, anxiety disorders, panic disorders, and depression as well as migraine, tension and allergy headaches. I specialize because I have a long history with panic attacks and GAD (generalized anxiety disorder). And a very long history with headaches!

I also specialize in, and am certified in fertility, pregnancy, and postnatal massage therapy and am certified to teach infant massage classes. I have two amazing kids of my own (although they are no longer kids) and I know first hand how important massage is during this time of a woman's life. I swear the only thing that got me through labor was my husband massaging my legs and feet.

I suffered from moderate postpartum depression after my first child. Those were some dark and lonely days, but I was able to get through with the help of friends, family, massage and many boxes of Whitmans samplers (I do not recommend all the chocolates). 

It is important that we take care of ourselves and realize that we are not supposed to be running on empty and stressed out 24 hours a day because eventually your mind and body will break. I know first hand how this feels and have vowed to never let that happen again.

I am also a Reiki Master Teacher and Integrative Energy Therapist. These forms of energy therapy help address and release stagnant energy and emotions to achieve balance of the body, mind and spirit. 

All my sessions are slow and relaxing. I don't believe that massage should hurt and be overly painful other than that "good hurt" feeling. I believe in working with the body to assist it in freeing itself from the chronic tension, pain, stress and anxiety and not trying to force it into doing something its not ready to do.

I welcome you to the Intentions family!

Rachel is hands down the best masseuse I have ever been to! She is very knowledgeable of her trade and consistently relieves any aches/pains I’m feeling. If you’re looking for a fantastic massage, go see Rachel! She will not disappoint!
