About Me

Let me start by thanking you for being interested in my journey. I graduated in 2008 from The Healing Arts and Massage School located in Raleigh, NC. I started my massage career working for a local massage therapy & wellness center, specializing in lymphatic massages and an Ayurvedic practice called Sirodhara. I later moved to Surf City, NC and worked in another wonderful massage spa where I learned more about energy healing and soaked up all the ease, warmth and peace of the island life.

In 2010 I opened myself up to the transformational experience of the Hawaiian massage, called Lomi Lomi. I immediately knew that I wanted to share this heart opening massage with the world and so I began my journey. I got my 1st Lomi Lomi Certificate here in Raleigh and then traveled to Hawaii to receive my 2nd Lomi Lomi Certification.

In 2011 I moved back to North Raleigh and started my own massage therapy center, the Kala Sol Massage Therapy & Wellness Spa of North Raleigh. It has brought me so much happiness to do this amazing work. I hope to bring some Kala Sol into everyone’s life that is reading this. Many blessing to you and yours.

Free Hot Stones with any massage…

The stones are immersed in water and heated in an electric heating device until they are within a certain temperature range. The stones may be placed at specific points on the back, in the palms of the hand, or between the toes.

The heat warms and relaxes the muscles, which allows the therapist to apply deeper pressure, if desired.

Swedish Relaxation Massage

Swedish Massage Therapy is the modality that comes to mind when most people think about massage. As the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body.


Prenatal Massages

Prenatal Massage Therapy during pregnancy is a wonderful complementary choice for prenatal care. It is a healthy way to reduce stress and promote overall wellness. Massage relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches and edema (or swelling).


Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage Therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints





Sacred Lomi Ka’ala hoku
“Massage journey to the stars”.

This short version of a Hawaiian sacred healing art was originally handed down from Kahuna to students in an unbroken chain for a millennium.

This bodywork is so powerful that it can be considered physical therapy as well as a vehicle for the release of emotions, traumas, tension, stress, and blocked energy. It is used to revive the body, move blood and lymph, release muscle spasms, and facilitate waste product removal from muscle and connective tissue. The concepts of unconditional love, grace, beauty, and spirit are inherent in a Lomi Lomi Treatment.


It is a good idea to drink plenty of water after this treatment to continue the cleansing process. Feel the unique benefits of this powerful massage in just one session.

Music is an integral part of this session. The therapist will work in a rhythmic motion. The movement is choreographed in the moment as the unique spirit and need of each person’s body ultimately guides the session. Each level of tissue can be treated from the skin level to bone level.

Best massage therapist I have ever experienced! I have had massages all over the country for the last 30 years. Some of the therapists I’ve found have been truly exceptional. However, Rachel is the best I’v ever experienced. She conveys serenity, peace and healing in her way of being and intuition for what body work is needed is magical. My body is naturally incredibly tight and she is able to work with me in a way that releases the tension and leaves me feeling lighter, calm, and relaxed.
