Rachel is currently working as a full time Massage Therapist in the Dublin Therapeutic Massage Clinic. She has been working as a therapist since 2005 and previously worked in the Holistic Healing Centre. She also helped on Holistic Massage courses as a junior instructor. She has diplomas in Therapeutic Massage, Sports Massage, Lymph Drainage Massage, Holistic Massage, Indian Head Massage, Aromatherapy and Onsite Massage. She also has CPD certificates in Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques, Orthopedic Massage, Hot Stone Massage and Pregnancy Massage. She is also a Reiki Master. She is currently studying Bowen therapy as an adjunct to her massage treatments.
One of the reasons Rachel got into massage is that her younger sister suffered with severe back problems when she was a teenager. Rachel’s father, who taught in the Medical School in Trinity College, showed her a few basic techniques which she was able to use on her sister to help relieve some of her pain. It took her a few years to come back to this calling and in 2004 started her first massage course. From that moment onwards she has been constantly training.
Rachel specialises in TMJ (temporal-mandibular joint/jaw) treatments and in particular brings her previous experience of dental nursing into her treatment approach.
Rachel likes to keep herself updated in new ways to improve her techniques so as to benefit her clients. Massage work is her passion.
