I'm Raechel Haller, a Licensed Massage Therapist, and owner of Massage Sci. Here is a bit of my story.
Before I became a massage therapist, I worked at several nonprofit organizations. Wore a lot of hats - marketing, operations, events management, program development, fund development, and grant writing. I would regularly receive massages for general relaxation and wellness.
After I was involved in a car accident and experienced persistent neck pain, I found the massage therapist I was seeing for general stress relief could also help with the neck pain. It was then I realized there was much more to massage therapy than I knew. Fast forward several years and I was attending a school focused on a medical approach to massage and applying for a license to practice.
I landed my first massage job at a Holland spa. There I honed in various relaxation techniques, but also came to realize my passion was providing relief from chronic pain. I couldn't learn enough when it came to understanding the nervous system and how pain works.
I opened Massage Sci in 2015 with a specific focus on pain relief and watched it quickly grow into my full-time gig.
I believe in collaboration and gladly partner with other health and wellness professionals in both Holland, MI and the greater West Michigan area.
In my free time I enjoy researching, writing, reading, gardening, and being an avid sci-fi nerd.
