I have been an Orthopedic Physician for 45 years. Starting off my career, as a surgeon and now teaching and working in pathology research. I have never met someone with the specific skillset that Rebekah possesses. She is extremely skilled and unique. I am glad that our lives crossed briefly as I feel inspired by her. I would recommend her to everyone. - Dr. Ed McCarthy, MD. Johns Hopkins Hospital.
If you are serious about improving your health, Rebekah can help. As a former athlete in an aging body, maximizing performance was an increasing challenge. While simple to attribute to age, Rebekah astutely assessed range of motion deficits, the result of years of triathlon training, but more importantly, weakness in stabilizing muscles, the residual of decades as a power athlete, that limited not only performance, but increased the probability of injury. Over the past six months, she has implemented a thoughtful program combining massage and stretching that is improving performance and recovery. Importantly, she is teaching me ways to better understand how my body operates to ensure I am more attentive to its needs. I’ve been blessed to be connected to many exceptional people in my athletic pursuits, coaches, trainers, strength coaches and Rebekah ranks high among them.

Rebekah plays a huge part in my ability to CrossFit and lift heavy weights. When I came to her I had lower back issues, IT Band pain, and shoulder pain which through her work and education are pretty much non existent and don't get in the way of my training. She keeps me on the right track! I would recommend her to anyone looking to better themselves physically as well as furthering their understanding of human movement.

I met Rebekah several years ago, while rehabbing from lower back surgery. I have been seeing her on and off for over 5 years. I've never met someone more knowledgeable about the inner workings of my muscles and posture and skeletal alignment. No matter what my ache or pain, if I did what she assessed and recommended the problem was corrected. I had been going to the chiropractor for 15 years about this one area in my mid back to have him crack it. When I told Rebekah about it, she showed me a muscle alignment technique and I haven't had to go back to get adjustments in over two years. If you listen to her sage advise your body will thank you and her. I highly recommend her. Plus she's nice on top of all those brains!

Continuing to understand more about the mind-body connection is an imperative step in the process to better health. IFM provides the opportunity for the patient to understand what can be done to promote one's own wellness. The experience has been one of objective transformation; trading short-term pain relief by the therapist to a joint effort to achieve sustainable wellness. The writer values what he has learned and the progress to wellness achieved. Rebekah is a consummate professional.

Overall it was more detailed and therapeutic than I expected. I enjoyed the experience & learned a lot about posture, breathing & self-care. My expectation was relief, so I participated openly & the objectives were met.

It has been very helpful to gain a better understanding of how the body's muscular and skeletal systems work and the corrective actions that can be taken to improve their functioning together. The integrative and functional aspects is completely different than other therapeutic massage experiences I have encountered. My primary objective was obtaining sustained relief from my chronic issues. The knowledge of how to achieve that objective was received and experienced via demonstration, guidance and take aways.
Rebekah is extremely good at what she does!! I feel much better since becoming a client - nagging repetitive injuries are gone.
Some massage therapists just massage you and it is always different - never a consistent experience. In this regard, I think Integrative Functional Massage is superior to what I have experienced in the past. Rebekah teaches you with a wealth of knowledge and from her own personal experiences. What could be better than receiving care from someone who cares that you feel better? Rebekah talks to you so it is easily understood. If you question something, then she explains it until you understand. Sometimes I just need a plain massage and Rebekah is aware of when that is necessary! I always feel better!

Orthopedic Massage Therapy is great! I am feeling better every time I visit Rebekah!
- Frank Kolakowski
Rebekah is an amazing therapist. Her approach is unlike any other I have experienced. Incorporating breath, movement and teaching in the session is brilliant and effective. She is not there to simply give a massage, but to teach and heal.
- Jill Dunn
I can't say enough about the value and benefit Rebekah and Orthopedic Massage Therapy have added to my life. Not only do I feel so much better after each session, but I also learn tools that I can employ to strengthen and manage my issues. A bonus is that Rebekah is not only skilled and knowledgeable, but provides a genuine caring, friendly and comfortable atmosphere. I highly recommend Orthopedic Massage Therapy!

Real Results!! 4 visits with Rebekah and there is much improvement in my neck and shoulders. Her steady and methodical attention combined with her soothing and consistent instructions always make sessions with Rebekah worth talking about the rest of the day.
