Reviews and diplomas

Healing and wellness is all about YOU, not me. Nevertheless, it is an act of great trust to put yourself in the hands of a therapist. You might like to know a little about me.

Hello, I am Rachel.  I have been practising massage therapy since 2002.  I work in Altea, which is easily accessible from Alfaz and Albir.   This is a premium-quality massage therapy service with the best quality oils and environment, and of course, therapist!

I hold the following qualifications:

  • B.Sc Applied Chemical & Biological Sciences, Ryerson University, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
  • Body Massage, Anatomy& Physiology, ITEC-UK, CMH School of Massage, London
  • Manual Lymphatic Drainage and Complete Decongestive Therapy, Foëldi Klinik, Hinterzarten, Germany.
  • Yoga Teacher, Viniyoga School of Spain, Dénia, Alicante, Spain
  • Principles and Application of Nutritional Therapy, Thames Valley University, London.

I have healing hands and the more I study and practice yoga and bodywork, the more magnetic they become.  It seems to be something innate in me as it was there for the very beginning.  My super power is getting nervous people to relax.  I think that is a cool superpower to have, don’t you?

It is always hard to write about oneself in this kind of context.  I hesitate to use the word “healer” because it is, frankly, overused.  But, I have heard time and again that there is something special about my hands.  Combined with a good intellect and and appetite for learning, which grounds me in anatomy, physiology, contra-indications and when to refer, my natural healing hands do some nice work.

Here are some recommendations that patients have been kind enough to write.

I highly recommend Rachel to anyone who suffers from lymphedema and needs lymphatic drainage. As a result of being treated for breast cancer some 12 years ago, I suffer badly from lymphedema and I have a very swollen arm caused by the lymphatic fluid is my arm being trapped. I was immediately impressed by Rachel and her depth of knowledge about lymphedema. She is the first person I have found who totally understands my health problem, how it was caused and how it can be treated. She also explained to me how my neck and shoulder had also been affected by this condition. I cannot speak of Rachel more highly and the techniques she applies. The massages she has given to my neck have given me tremendous relief and I have already started to see a reduction in the size of my arm from the manual drainage treatment she has applied to it. Rachel, for me, was an incredible find. She is extremely knowledgeable. Not only is she highly qualified but has many practical years of experience. This combined with her caring and gentle personality give me confidence that I have finally found the right person to help me.  – S. Neilson

Having suffered for quite a while with an injured shoulder from a sporting accident, I decided to try out Massage Altea. The day of my massage was quite stressful as well, with a few work deadlines bothering me. To say I have never had a better massage in my life would be an understatement! I left feeling completely relaxed and with way less stiffness in my right shoulder. Thanks for making my day! – C.Ganser
