"I can only say Rachel has psychic hands!... she knows how to work on all that the places that hurt in just the right way. She can go deep, but knows when to back off. If I just want to sleep, she rhythmically massages me until I'm snoring. I travel a lot for work and I've had massages all over the world, but the best massages I've ever had were with Rachel. It doesn't hurt that she's such a sweetheart".-A.S.
"I could tell how knowledgeable she is about the body as well as the mind- body connection. This knowledge, coupled with her careful touch leaves you feeling taller, lighter, more aligned, and deeply relaxed. I felt a difference in my body that lasted quite some time". -J. F.
"I had a chakra balancing session... While I have somewhat of an open mind towards energy work there was a part of me that held some skepticism. Not anymore. I know that I had intense experiences of energy shifting during the session. I slept like a baby that night and for days after I felt extremely balanced, present and clear... I'll be back again!" -C.R.
