Rebecca Rockeymoore, LMT MTI

Rebecca has been a practicing Massage Therapist since 1997! She trained at St. Phillip’s College, which prepared her well for a life of service to people’s health and wellbeing. 

The art of massage therapy has changed so much over the last few decades. What hasn’t changed is her dedication to therapeutic massage & healing art services. 

In her private practice she incorporates Mu Xing, Reflexology, Cupping and Reiki as well as the basics of Swedish massage techniques. Rebecca prides herself in using Deep Tissue approaches but with a ‘gentle’ methodology.

Rebecca also has many years of teaching experience in Special Education and Art in public schools. This has prepared her to aid students in accessing and synthesizing new information so that they may design an informed massage routine and feel confident with their knowledge of the human body. 

Rebecca looks forward to sharing her personal skill sets, years of relationship and business building and unique perspectives with the up and coming LMT’s of Texas!
