Massage Therapist (RMT, BSc)

Deepen your mind-body connection by taking time to relax, tune in to sensation, and receive care.

My Story.

I have been curious about the natural world and where/how humans fit into it since childhood. My passion for learning about living systems has led me to so many opportunities and challenges, from organic farming and tree planting to studying Environmental Science, to my current massage therapy practice and beyond. Every human has a body with which to move through the world – finding comfort and ease in my own body through exertion, rest, and mindfulness inspires me to support others on the journey to wellness.

Life outside the office.

I value spending time with loved ones, keeping my houseplants happy, keeping myself healthy with regular activity (running and bodyweight exercise like pilates are my current jam!) and rest (napping, eating take-out, and Netflix!), and challenging myself to continue learning about personal, social, and environmental health.

Specialties.

  • Swedish massage therapy
  • Joint mobilization
  • Dermoneuromodulation

Therapeutic approaches offered.

I use the nervous system as a framework to understand the effects of massage therapy. Your body makes changes in habitual muscle tension and perceptions of discomfort when you feel comfortable and safe. My role is to maintain a safe environment for you, and to provide your nervous system with new information through touch and movement.

I incorporate myofascial techniques, joint mobilizations, and dermoneuromodulation into a foundation of Swedish massage, using deeper pressure as indicated and within comfort. We work together to find a level of pressure and range of movement that is comfortable and relieving! I offer suggestions for stretches, exercises, and activities as well – your self-care doesn’t end when you leave your appointment!

47 – Taking care of your nervous system using Massage Therapy with Rebecca Froese

written by Rebecca Froese on 17/07/20

What is dermoneuromodulation? It’s simpler than it sounds! Let’s break down the word: “dermo” means skin. “Neuro” refers to your nervous system. And “modulation” means change. So dermoneuromodulation, or DNM, means contacting the skin and stimulating the nervous system to create change. All manual therapy involves the skin and the nervous system by default. DNM […]
