“Rachael has an amazing ability to find the exact spot that needs healing and energy. Her touch is gentle and comforting. I highly recommend her work!”

"Meditation with Rachael is like stepping into the most wise and enlightened version of yourself that experiences what we’ve all read about. You experience within minutes the bliss and quiet awareness that we truly are…. just by being in a certain posture. It’s wild and yet crazy simple."
"While practicing meditation with you tonight, for the first time ever I saw my thoughts floating inside my head. I was totally amazed and caught off guard. All the words appeared written in gold color energy. It was like I was separated from my mind. I would see all my thoughts appearing and disappearing. It was the most amazing cool thing.”
“I was acutely aware of Rachael’s serene and intuitive essence coming through her touch. I felt as though I was flowing through a gentle river in a shaded, lush forest -- being softly peeled open to tranquil shapes, colors and inner awarenesses. My attempt to describe the deeply profound healing of her essence really does not come close to honoring her. Still, I want to acknowledge the Beauty of her exquisite Art.”
“Wow! After our session, for the first time in at least 5 yrs, my intuitive visions are coming back. As you work on me, you touched every spot that had some kind of physical problem, without me even telling you about it. The gentleness and precision of your work has really helped me open up and let go of the past. Thank you so much!”
"Rachael is a woman of great presence. As a guide in Gu Shen, she has a nice balance of sweet and playful with wisdom and power. So why wait for enlightenment? It’s here and now and always has been.”
“My friend and I arrived to the concert early so we could lay directly in front of the GONGS, (they deserve capitals). The sounds dissolved us. We were physically altered, unable to raise more than our eyelids for about 45 minutes after everyone else had gone home. It made me profoundly aware of the power sound vibration has, and its transformational potential. Rachael’s GONGS alter the body’s vibration to the point where blockages simply slip up and away between the spaces created by the sounds. The density that kept them bound is dissolved by the vibration of the tones. It’s very trippy! And VERY cool.”
