Rachel ThompsonJul 16, 2020
Rachel obtained her Diploma of Remedial Massage at the Australian College of Fitness and Bodywork, with a particular interest in the effects of relaxation massage on treating stress and pain. Rachel treats each client individually, considering the whole picture to improve their wellbeing. Her technique is inspired predominantly by myofascial release and trigger point therapy improving posture and reducing pain.
Rachel’s motivation stems from helping people to live their best life. She discovered the true benefits of massage therapy after a personal history of sporting and work injuries. With the help of regular remedial treatments, Rachel was able to cross the finish line at the Great Ocean Road Half Marathon, and maintain full time work as a young pastry chef. These experiences prompted her career change so she could help others.
Outside of work, Rachel still enjoys the challenges of running, and the luxury of hiking through the hills with her friends. Her favourite past-time is conquering fears with activities such as skydiving, performing live, and learning new tricks on her roller skates.
