Hello, my name is Rachel Garcia. I specialize in body positive therapy for women who are exhausted and in pain. The modality I practice is called Chavutti Thirumal-- South Indian Barefoot Massage.

You receive this massage positioned lying on a soft mat on the floor. I hold suspended ropes for balance and apply the entire massage with my (very clean) feet. All major muscle groups included. This treatment is so thorough, so effective at relieving pain, and leaves you feeling... so tremendous, you may never go for conventional table massage again.

Let's get you feeling better now.

I had not experienced Chavutti Thirumal before, but it is a traditional Indian foot pressure massage and allows the practitioner to use all their body weight across the surface of their feet to apply deep yet soothing pressure. It is great for increasing flexibility and I lack flexibility due to my paralysis. Rachel's skill has convinced me of the benefit of this modality. I highly recommend!
