Hi, I'm Rachel
I am an Osteopathic Manual Therapist who helps people with chronic pain move better, feel better, and live better. Osteopathic means that I use deep tissue osteopathic techniques to free muscles neurologically and leverage muscular attachments for joint movement and visceral mobility. This body work results with better nutrition and functionality of the body for healing and health maintenance. Well-fed tissue supports a healthy body that moves without pain. This treatment changed my world, and I’m excited for this work to positively impact yours, as well.
Practice and Education
The techniques I use are not typical relaxation massage techniques. Instead, they are a customized combination of osteopathic therapies I have learned and continue to learn from ANS Balance HRV and Pursuit Physical Therapy. This approach to treatment is based on the philosophy that all the body's systems are interconnected and treatment needs to consider and address them all to be successful.
I limit my use of these manual therapy techniques to the scope and practice of massage therapy.
