Hello! My name is Rachel Brimm. I am currently licensed in Massage Therapy in Prairie Village, Kansas. Massage therapy has been a passion of mine since high school. I started attending BMSI in Overland Park, Kansas in 2000, and graduated with a Certification in Massage Therapy in 2003. During school we had to come up with a business plan. Scents of Touch was the name I originated at the time, about 15 years ago! I am blessed to see it become reality! I was always intrigued with essential oils and their ability to aid the body and mind. I knew that I wanted to integrate them into my work. Hence, "Scents" refers to the essential oils, and "Touch" is my massage. Of course, it is also a play on words, since the phrase is commonly "sense of touch." I love helping to relieve muscular tension and the every day issues that people most commonly have, such as trigger points (knots), stiff neck and shoulders, headaches etc. I have massaged everyone from runners to hairdressers. I have worked at two reputable and wonderful businesses, where I was licensed in Missouri, prior to opening my own. Working in such amazing, professional environments, with exceptionally talented massage therapists, has prepared me for where I am today.
I have created Scents of Touch in order to help you feel physically well through the use of essential oils during therapeutic massage. I want you to learn that you can lessen your pain and increase your mobility. I want you to know and understand that you are in control of your own health and well-being! I can assist in helping you do just that.
Each therapeutic massage session is by appointment only and will be tailored to your needs. No two sessions are identical. If you feel stressed, and just want to be relaxed...that's what will be achieved. If that trigger point (knot) in your neck or shoulder is painful and maybe even causing headaches...time will be spent focusing on giving you relief. Massage and essential oils are not only good for the body, but also the mind. Prior to each session, we will discuss what you would like to accomplish that day. Don't think for one second that allowing yourself time for a massage is just a "special treat." You need it. Everyone does. You have one body, and have to live with it every day of your life. You deserve to get massage as a means to take care of it. Trust me...it's worth it! YOU ARE WORTH IT!
