Working with Rachel has made a dramatic difference in the quality of my life! In just 5 sessions, she has helped me to alleviate years of upper back, shoulder, and neck tension. I feel as though 50 lbs have been magically lifted off of my shoulders! I never would have imagined that I hold the key to relieving my chronic muscle tension. I find myself with a better mood, have more energy to interact with my patients and family, and overall, feel more centered and peaceful. This is an amazing technique and I would highly recommend it to anyone. I eagerly look forward to continuing my work with Rachel to achieve a more balanced, pain free, and functional body.

Following Rachel’s caring and gentle direction, I like to think of “Therapeutic Yoga” as “Mindfulness Yoga”- slowing down and focusing on the breath and what is really happening within my body – rather than the body perfect of what I envision from the yoga pictures. Rachel’s expertise has helped me feel the bones and the muscles of my body – to relax those that have become dominant and to strengthen those that are lazy – in an “effortless effort” synchronization of my movement. With her keen eye and her knowledge, Rachel has me work on areas that may be causing me pain rather than on the pain area itself which wonderfully has eliminated a lot of muscle pain. She has taken my yoga practice and daily movement to a whole different level. And it has been fun!

I have been dealing with pain from a hip flexor for several months and low grade headaches and lower back pain for the past seven years. I decided to try yoga to rebuild strength and flexibility and went out on Studiovibe's website and found that they offered Therapeutic Yoga. So I scheduled a few one on one sessions with Rachel in January. I experienced relief from the hip flexor pain after the first session! Rachel gave me exercises to work on at home as well.

Each session I have with Rachel yields results and new discoveries on how my body has compensated over the last several years from sitting at a desk and working on a computer. After one of my sessions, we were able to bring awareness to my posture and the natural curvature on my spine. Wow, how much relief I got from adjusting my perception of the spinal alignment. We have built on that awareness to the point that my hip flexor pain is totally gone and the lower back pain is diminishing. I walk more relaxed, hence, my other efforts to increase my flexibility and strength in my legs and lower back are progressing. Now we are working on releasing the area around an old shoulder injury and my headaches, which are starting to diminish.

I highly recommend you schedule a trial session with Rachel to work on chronic issues with pain or reduced range of motion and general well-being.
