An effective 1:1 method for feeling better, focused on
helping you master the specific skills + tools you need.

Each of the four pillars of the method is research-backed, and personalized to you.


The fresh start I craved to untangle my pain puzzle and feel better, finally.

  • Begin again. Find a best, safe resting position that you can stay in comfortably.

  • Distinguish “bad pain” from other sensations, so you know when to back off or keep exploring.

  • Set clear goals for your pain recovery, from personal wellness assessments and profile.

  • Begin your back pain recovery with the right movements and breath sequenced for you from therapeutic yoga and somatics.

  • See and shift habits that have been limiting your fitness and recovery.

  • Incorporate simple, “stealth” body-mind tools to reset anywhere you are: at home, work, traveling.

... notable improvement and deep relaxation.

  • Apply the “vagal brake” to move from hyped and wiped to aptly energized.

  • Find your right breath to decrease inflammation and boost physical performance and mental focus.

  • Build your body sensing and proprioceptive skills to decrease fatiguing pain.

  • Begin dynamic, functional movements to complement your reset practices, and to ignite your energy.

  • Build a purposeful routine to sleep better and be more rested.

  • Determine simple daily choices (like how you exercise, eat, play) that conserve and build energy and stamina.

The progress was not overnight but over weeks with a careful combination of behavior changes and daily movements that reduced pain triggers, improved strength and gave me confidence to become more active.

stabilize + strengthen

  • Experience how body strength begins from the inside out.

  • Develop the deepest layers of inner belly muscles that hold you up.

  • Master “low + slow” movements that grow the intelligence of stabilizing muscles.

  • Replace unhelpful “crunching” and “stretching” with new ways of moving, to engage vital yet often deconditioned muscles (diaphragm, transversus abdominis, multifidae, others).

  • Align your standing, sitting, walking or running around a steady, strong center and confident core.

  • Breathe  to tone the diaphragm and support the spine, relieving upper body “accessory muscles” of incorrect breath patterns that worsen back and neck tension.

  • Identify and remedy the key imbalances and postural habits that add to your pain pattern.

Now that I know exactly what to do for my back and body, I even went trekking in New Zealand and took walking trips in Europe!

  • See yourself once again as capable, inspired, healthy.

  • Start saying yes again to professional opportunities, and time with family and friends.

  • Not only recover but start preventing pain. Take care of business, lift the kids, wiggle, work out, and play safely without pain, fear of flares or re-injury.

  • Manage your energy reserves before they are depleted.

  • Change your relationship to pain, tension, fatigue, and suffering.

  • Wake refreshed and move through your days capable and energized.

With Rachel’s guidance, I released painful patterns of holding and learned new ways of moving. I have become stronger in ways that are subtly but deeply empowering. I feel energized in my body and grateful for Rachel’s warm, personalized approach.

During your Complimentary Intro Call, we’ll create a plan that works for your goals, location, and schedule—with a choice to meet in person at my San Francisco office or via online TeleSessions, right where you are. From your very first session, I take you through assessment and practice sequences so you know you are doing them correctly, and we build from there!

  • Initial RE/ST Session intake + goals (90 min)

  • Ongoing RE/ST Sessions (60 min, 6x)

Ideal if you’re ready to feel better, develop confidence in your custom pain recovery toolbox, and know now is the time to make this a priority.

TeleSessions only.
Completed in one month.

  • Initial RE/ST Session (60 min)

  • Ongoing RE/ST TeleSessions (30 min, 3x)

We see how you’ve shifted from baseline. We celebrate your accomplishments, lift up transformations, and then plan your next steps to maintain gains. Once you master RE/ST, you will have the option to refine and sustain with me in ongoing sessions.
