Rachel is a recent graduate from Advanced Massage Therapeutics. In addition to her LMT certification, she is an ACE certified personal trainer and a RRCA certified run coach. Rachel is also stretching certified.
Rachel is a life-long runner, who for the past several years has focused primarily on ultra-marathon distances, including multiple 100-mile races. With personal experience in both running and coaching athletes to ultra-endurance event finishes, she understands the impact training and racing has on the mind and body.
As a coach and trainer, Rachel wanted to be able to do more to help her athletes not only recover from injury, but to prevent it in the first place; this is what led her to pursue massage therapy. She is a huge believer in finding and fixing the source of the problem, regardless of whether the issue is from overuse, muscle inhibition, or simply a lack of understanding the body.
Everyone can benefit from massage, not just athletes. Everyone can benefit from asking questions and learning why their body responds the way it does. Everyone can benefit from the release of tension and stress that massage provides. All of us should be advocates for our bodies and fight for our physical longevity and mental health. This is what drives Rachel as a massage therapist and excites her to be part of such an educated, diverse, and driven group of practitioners at Mind Body Physio.
