Hiya, I am Rachel. I have been practising massage therapy since 2002 and hold the following qualifications:

You might want to know more about me…I am a musician, singer and songwriter. I am a passionate student of yoga, as well as a teacher. I am a computer buff, and used to know a lot about networking, UNIX and Open Source stuff. I laugh out loud, a lot. I write short stories that I might publish someday…
It is always hard to write about oneself in this kind of context. I hesitate to use the word “healer” because it is, frankly, overused. But, I have heard time and again that there is something special about my hands. Combined with a good intellect and and appetite for learning, which grounds me in anatomy, physiology, contra-indications and when to refer, my natural healing hands do some nice work.
