About Rachel 

I train people to understand and befriend their body

Restoring a friendly understanding of my body's signals empowered me when doctors, therapists, yoga and meditation teachers were baffled by my "case". 

As a Licensed Massage Therapist, Somatic Guide and Reiki Master, I work with the body as a partner, rather than a problem. I listen and respond with curiosity and care. Through our sessions I train you to do the same. 

The methods I use are derived from trauma-informed (poly-vagal) practices that regulate the nervous system to restore balance and empower strength.

But more than my academic training, I believe it is my presence and care that facilitates the level of healing my clients experience. 

Sessions can be relaxing, but not always. More often, especially in the first several sessions, I ask for client participation (body tracking, reporting, engaging certain muscles). It's a dynamic process.
