The Therapist

Rachel Hess, LMT

Rachel began her healing journey in the healing arts 30 years ago when she received her undergraduate degree in Exercise Kinesiology from the UW-Madison. She worked as a personal trainer focusing on strengthening the core of the body and teaching healthy lifestyles. She also created personal injury rehabilitation programs, pre-natal and post-partum exercise programs, as well as wellness and weightloss programs.

She added to her understanding of the body by studying massage therapy at the Oregon School of Massage. She has been practicing therapeutic bodywork for the last 20 years, specializing in CranioSacral Therapy/SomatoEmotional Release, Swedish and Deep Tissue Massage, Kinesiotaping, Gua-sha and Massage Cupping, Pre-natal Massage, Plant Spirit Medicine and Aromatherapy Massage.

Rachel was proud to receive her Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from the National College of Naturopathic Medicine, where she learned about all aspects of healing the body, mind and spirit. Rachel focused her studies on natural midwifery, mind-body medicine, herbal medicine, nutrition and lifestyle management. She practiced as a naturopathic physician for 13 years. She continues to counsel clients as an herbalist and wellness advocate.

Rachel feels her approach to healing is a culmination of all her education and life experiences. She has worked with individuals of all ages, and with numerous conditions. She has consciously birthed three beautiful children at home, her last two unassisted.

Rachel feels strongly called to assist in the healing of Mother Earth by assisting souls to consciously live in this world in a loving, peaceful and gentle way, to teach the value of honoring the physical, mental, emotional and spiritul bodies, and to assist those who are willing to venture on the path within themselves to the deepest healing possible.
