Rachel has been studying and practicing massage for over 10 years. With extensive training in various modalities, she specializes in combining deep tissue massage with myofascial release for a uniquely effective approach to treating chronic pain & tension, as well as sports-related injuries.
Although Rachel’s work is therapeutic and often quite deep, it is also described by clients as “extremely relaxing”. One client says, “I never allow myself to be that relaxed”. Many clients fall asleep during the session, or report entering a deep “dreamlike” state. This state is also known as the “theta” brainwave state, which is optimal for deep levels of healing.
When you come in for a session, the goals are both short and long term: immediate pain relief, and lasting structural change. Rachel’s long-term goals for clients are to assist the body in learning and integrating healthy, optimal patterns of movement and balance that bring greater ease to athletic endeavours, as well as everyday life. Your session will leave you feeling rejuvenated on multiple levels, with your body relaxed, balanced, and refreshed.
