Massage helps you become more in tune with your body and is an important step in the process of balancing your health. And this is why Rachael focuses her therapeutic massage on the areas where people carry the most tension and stress.
Her style integrates deep-tissue massage, which releases tightness in the connective tissues and lengthens muscles. She works with a diverse clientele, including patients recovering from motor vehicle accidents, patients with chronic injuries, and those simply seeking relaxation.
Starting as a receptionist at An Hao Clinic, where she was surrounded by experts in alternative medicine, she drew inspiration from them, and undertook study of massage therapy. She graduated from the East West College of Healing Arts in Portland, Oregon in 2009. Rachael continues to take courses to broaden her techniques and refine her skills, including courses in deep tissue, myofascial release, and Thai massage; she plans to continue her studies in Thailand in the near future.
A Minnesota native, Rachael has lived in Oregon since 2002. She holds a special place in her heart for Minnesota and returns to visit frequently, but she has become a true Oregonian. She enjoys camping, hiking, biking, swimming, yoga, and lives a holistic, healthy lifestyle.
