Rachel specializes in helping clients let go of their stress and physical discomfort. You will shift into a relaxed state as she addresses your areas of pain, tension or restricted movement. After your treatment she will be glad to suggest a simple home exercise to help reinforce the health benefits of your massage.
Rachel is a graduate of The Massage School in Boston as well as being a yoga teacher. She believes that one of the great gifts of massage is to interrupt the cycle of physical and emotional tension, which can become so habitual that we might forget what it is like to be without it. Massage can quickly remind us that we are capable of feeling better and of true relaxation. And that experience can leave us with a visceral memory of a physiological and mental state that is conducive to healing and developing new healthier patterns.
This is the kind you’re most likely to encounter at a spa. Stress-reduction massage can also induce a state of mind called the Relaxation Response, which has been shown to minimize the effects of stress and boost your immune system. Everyone knows that a stressful day will cause the muscles in your shoulders and neck to tighten. For some, symptoms can even include a tense jaw, back ache, fatigue and headaches. When you’re feeling overwhelmed and even simple movement is stiff, our Stress-reduction Massage is likely to bring you immediate relief.
For more severe or chronic pain you should consider our Therapeutic Massage.

OUR SIGNATURE MASSAGE. Blends a general Swedish-based massage with muscular therapy techniques to reduce significant tension due to either muscle strain or excessive stress. Some discomfort may result during treatment but a renewed sense of ease and feeling relaxed should last for several days. All sessions are customized for individual needs.
With that in mind, we ask that you please communicate with your therapist about the technique and pressure to be used. You may need to upgrade to one of our Advanced Bodywork modalities (see Integrative Bodywork or Deep Tissue Massage) if your pain involves several muscles or fascial lines. But if your wish is to feel relaxed and still have some of your pain & tension reduced our Therapeutic Massage is probably right for you.
PLEASE NOTE: 1-hour is recommended when it’s your initial session.
At MTW we strongly feel that because you have a tension pattern that is unique to you, your session should be customized to meet your individual needs/issues. Our therapists are skilled in many healing modalities which they combine to provide you with a truly therapeutic experience for your mind, body and spirit. Our hope is to educate and encourage you to be an active participant in your own health and wellness.
