Prior to Rae's 2013 graduation from The Georgia Massage School, she earned a Bachelor's degree in Wellness and Exercise Science from Middle Tennessee State University. Growing up, Rae was a Gymnast who loved working out in the weight room. After spending her childhood competing, she coached Gymnastics for 4 years before leaving the industry to become a Personal Trainer and Massage Therapist. Although Rae keeps her Personal Training certification current, she finds much more enjoyment in working with her clients on the massage table. Rae's main focus is the John Barns Myofascial Release technique mixed with deep tissue massage. This type of therapy is a slow, gentle stretch technique that penetrates deeply within the fascial system. The goal of this Myofascial Release technique, or MFR, is to free-up restrictions within the fascial lines, allowing increased joint range of motion and better postural alignment, resulting in decrease of pain. MFR has also been proven to release toxins from stagnant tissues and increase circulation to muscles. Rae uses MFR technique because it keeps athletes moving in proper form which reduces the risk of future injury.
