Rachel Smith, L.M.T.
As a Craniosacral therapist, Rachel has facilitated health and deeper relationships with her client’s bodies. She has served a range of individuals from pregnancy to passing, disabled children to athletes. Tuning in to the needs of the nervous system to help each client into a healing state in the moment is a gift and a responsibility.
The most rewarding thing in life is to help others. When Rachel discovered HPN High Performance Neurofeedback, she found it could bring about profound changes that last longer, as once the brainwaves were in sync, the nervous system could calm, and Craniosacral therapy tended to be more productive. She now combines the two modalities in her practice. The results she achieves continue to be rewarding. Seeing these results evolve and endure is both humbling and exciting.
Rachel brings a fresh approach to neurofeedback using years of experience palpating nervous systems as a Craniosacral therapist. She trained under both Corey Snook, the inventor of HPN High Performance Neurofeedback, and David Dubin, founder of the Dubin Clinic. She has met with Stephen Larsen and Sebern Fisher, et al., at the Fryeburg Conference in Maine for more immersion in the fascinating work, ahead of its time. For the medicine of the future can be less drugs, and more these elegant systems that whisper brains into a gentle restoration of a sense of self, and their facilitators.
Rachel studied Craniosacral therapy, somato emotional release, fascia and energy work at the Upledger Institute. She has specialized in pregnancy and pediatric Craniosacral therapy and as a labor Doula. She performs meningeal decompression for difficult symptoms. She studied in Thailand with masters of Traditional Thai massage. Her niche has been medical massage, sports rehabilitation, and training artists for action and dance for film. She is trained in Shiatsu, Reiki, Lymphatic drainage, Amupko Psoas release, silicone cupping, hot stone, Lomi lomi, Qi Gong, Trigger Point therapy, Swedish and deep tissue.
