About Me

Rachel graduated in 2009 from the Lauterstein-Conway Massage School in Austin, TX. She specializes in Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release, Swedish, and Sports massage. Having worked with Chiropractors since she was 15, Rachel has always been drawn to the clinical setting and enjoys assisting others to heal from within. She believes with a healthy diet, self awareness, and education, the body can heal itself from most illnesses.

Prior to massage school, Rachel earned her Bachelors in General Business from the University of Texas at San Antonio. From a young age, she played soccer competitively and continues to enjoy playing recreationally. Rachel came to Connecticut to reconnect with her brothers, as well as to escape the Texas heat.
