'Rachel is the only person that helps me feel the benefit of the treatment every time. Worth every penny.’

A safe space filled with profound knowledge and gentle guidance on how to unlock parts of myself that were long forgotten. The results of some of those techniques blow my mind! So simple yet so profound!

I spend that hour between a state of physical bliss - because you get so deep and work all the deepest places - and a kind of existential bliss, where I feel a simple but very deep gratitude for being alive and for receiving.

Rachel works with the body as a performer, therapist and somatic educator.
She is passionate about helping people access a more enjoyable experience of being in a body and more courageous in their creative agency.
Rachel's bodywork, training and facilitation is informed by her background in dance, movement and professional performance training. She re-learnt how to walk, sit and stand using neuroplastic somatic practices Alexander Technique and Feldenkrais Method, which permanently relieved her of chronic lower back pain, jaw and neck tension and changed her life and ignited in her a life long fascination with somatic enquiry and curiosity about the nature of biological intelligence. It also profoundly transformed her understanding of what kind of change we are capable of as a species.
She trained in remedial massage therapy at the College of Classical Massage in Brighton UK and is a Reiki Master (Ursui lineage). She has since explored many other body work modalities and somatic movement practices that continue to evolve her methods. She is passionate about continuing her enquiry with current research and is fully insured.
She has been working as a facilitator and somatic educator for over 15 years. Offering workshops and individual sessions exploring natural biological intelligence as a resource in self management, integration, awareness, vision clarification, creativity, range and choice.
For three years she has been part of an ongoing professional research group exploring how touch, movement and relationship with Alexander Teacher
