A letter from Rachel Dahl, LMT, CCT, Owner

­HI my name is Rachel Dahl, owner of Revive Bodyworks, LLC!

I help driven and active individuals pinpoint problematic issues and create customized massage sessions to decrease muscular aches, pains, or soreness so they can continue doing the activities they enjoy!

For those of you who don't know me, I would like to give you an opportunity to learn more about me.

I grew up in Jesup, and have lived here the majority of my life (minus a dozen years). I received my first professional massage when I was 14 years old. I received that massage as a gift from my mom for qualifying as a team for the state cross country meet. While I received that massage, I recall thinking that I could see myself doing this for other people. I knew I wanted to help others, but I wasn't sure in what capacity. I decided that I would go to massage school and work part time, while going on to school in another area of the health care field.

After graduation, I moved to Cedar Rapids and attended Capri College of Massage Therapy. After becoming a Licensed Massage Therapist, I worked part time as a LMT for a group of physicians that treated patients for chronic pain and attended college.

I studied Physical Therapist Assistant and Occupational Therapy Assistant at Kirkwood Community College. After three years of intensive course work, I received an Associates of Applied Science Degree with a double major.

I worked in a variety of PT/OT settings including outpatient, in patient, skilled nursing, and home health. I enjoyed helping others and the challenge of the work, but felt most fulfilled with the results people achieved through massage therapy. I saw changes occur physically, mentally, and spiritually.

*In 2012 I decided to follow my dream of having a more balanced life: helping others, being a wife and mom with flexibility in my schedule to attend our kiddos' events.

When given an opportunity to "relax" I love to go for a run, ride bike, participate in kickboxing/strength training classes, and learn about health and wellness related subjects.

The areas of health and wellness that have been most interesting in the last few years have been the incorporation of cupping, therapeutic grade essential oils, and tuning forks.

*In July of 2018 Christa Fitzgerald, LMT joined the team. Christa graduated from the massage program at La’ James International College in 2008. She has been practicing massage for over 10 years and is still just as passionate about massage as the day she started. She has seen massage do great things to improve the quality of life for so many people.

She is married to her husband, Aaron, and they live in Jesup. They have two adorable boys named Thorin and Daxton. Christa enjoys going for walks, playing with her boys, traveling, being members at JBF Church, and spending time with family and friends.

Christa offers Swedish, deep tissue, hot stone, and prenatal massage. Christa offers appointments on Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons.

*In April of 2019 SaHarra Lawrence, LMT joined the team. SaHarra is a graduate of Carlson College. She is our newest addition and is very delightful. She is such an upbeat, artsy, and energetic person who enjoys helping the community. She offers Swedish, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, Myofascial, cupping, aromatherapy, chair massages, prenatal massage, hot stone, and reflexology.
