I’m Rachel Reese: licensed massage therapist, wellness enthusiast, athlete, and founder/owner of Anchored Massage Therapy.
I have lived my life with an enthusiasm towards health, athleticism and general wellness. As a former high school water polo player (and current coach), crossfit devotee and avid dog-walker, I have built my ideologies around injury prevention and the importance of bodily care and treatment. My interest in anatomy and physiology was the inspiration behind obtaining a Bachelor’s of Science in Biology from the University of Washington. Soon after, I was trained in massage at Alexander's School of Natural Therapeutics. My education, coupled with my time spent at a chiropractic clinic have granted me the necessary skills to provide healing and restorative treatments for my clients.
I’ve spent the last few years honing my practice, working to create a blended technique that incorporates multiple modalities to treat and relieve pain at its source. Using a combination of Cupping Therapy, Gua Sha Therapy, Kinesiology Taping, Neuromuscular Re-Education, Orthopedic Massage Therapy, Aromatherapy, Trigger Point Therapy, Intraoral, Craniosacral, and Deep Tissue, I pride myself on being a well rounded practitioner. I believe in balance and the approach I take to massage reflects this philosophy. My passion for athletics translates into a methodology targeted for athletes and individuals with active lifestyles, and my dedication to health and wellness equates to a relaxing and tranquil massage experience for those looking to unwind and feel at ease. Whatever your goals may be, I am confident I can treat accordingly.
At Anchored Massage, I strive to leave my clients feeling grounded, confident and strong. Through the art of massage, I seek to empower and invigorate -- allowing space for revival and eradicating feelings of anxiety, depression and self-consciousness. Here, it is my goal to assess the issues you may be encountering and to help you heal from the inside out. I invite you to: enter a realm of calm peacefulness, expand your athletic and physical boundaries, or to take home a 100% natural soy candle handcrafted by me with your relaxation in mind.
On that note, welcome!
I’m glad you’re here.
