About Rachel

I help people who suffer from chronic pain, sports- and work-related injuries, or have post-surgical pain or complications. My #1 goal is to free you of your pain so that you can perform your day-to-day activities with ease. I focus on improving alignment and balance and optimizing range of motion to help you move freely, without pain or restrictions.

My work is client-centered, and my treatments are created to meet my client’s specific goals. A thorough health history, consultation, and assessment are performed at the first session in order to figure out how to proceed with a personalized treatment plan. In addition, I offer client-specific corrective exercises and stretches that can be performed in between sessions in order to maximize the therapeutic effects of the treatment.

My work is primarily a blend of Deep Tissue Massage, Sports Massage, Medical Massage, and Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques. Sessions are focused on alleviating your pain, tension, and restrictions, improving your alignment, and enabling you to move freely. Whether it’s running marathons, writing novels, or lifting up your child for a squeeze, my goal is to help you do what you love for as long as you love to do it!
