Rachel was invited to teach at the BSS in 1993 after graduating from the school, and completing the teacher training program with Ray Ridolfi.
As a student of Saul Goodman since 1992, and one of only a handful of Shin Tai teachers, Rachel is involved with presenting post graduate workshops of his Central Channel work.
Her shiatsu and holistic medicine journey began in New York in 1983, receiving treatments from a student of Masunaga and Ohashi, Pamela Hannay.
After returning to London and whilst working as a designer, the next step was Macrobiotic Shiatsu with Shizuko Yamamoto and Patrick McCarty, and Macrobiotic Cooking and Oriental Diagnosis with Aveline and Michio Kushi. Ultimately this led to training at the British School of Shiatsu-Do and subsequently to learning Craniosacral at the CSTET where key teachers were Michael Kern and Franklin Sills. Sometimes Rachel joins classes as a craniosacral teaching assistant in London. Other relevant learning includes the post graduate year with the Shiatsu College and she regularly attends workshops, always learning and developing her understanding of healing.
Rachel is a registered member of the Craniosacral Therapy Association, RCST, a registered member of Shiatsu Society UK, MRSS T, and has been an assessor for the Society for many years, now helping with the verification process for shiatsu schools. She is also a member of the CNHC, federal regulator of CAM therapies.
In the early nineties she pioneered taking shiatsu into the workplace, both treating staff on site and teaching shiatsu on site. Fully committed to natural health with a strong desire to share her experience with others, Rachel draws on meditation, yoga and outdoor activities to support her busy practice with people and with horses in the South West of England.
