“Rachel is great! She works with you and any issues you want to address during your session. She has great pressure if needed for deep tissue. The way she massages shows she cares for each and every person who’s being massaged at that moment. No rush, just smooth movements and such attention to subtlety. Great masseuse! Will def be back. Thanks again Rachel. I’ll make sure to tie my hair up next time!” -Paola Cuorvo/em>

“The best massage I ever received was on a beach in Maui…until Rachael came along. She is so talented and knows just how to make you feel relaxed. Somehow, she knows just where you are hurting and uses technique and skill to take away the pain. She is knowledgeable and skilled and I highly recommend her.”- Sherri Harper
