For over a decade, Rebecca Marie Goodrow has sought to enrich herself in the knowledge of Anatomy & Physiology and the science behind therapeutic touch. She completed massage certification at The Center for Natural Wellness School of Massage Therapy in 2005 and EMT/basic at Hudson Valley Community College in 2009. After achieving success at one of the area's most esteemed Day Spas, she went on to complete childbirth and postpartum training with Doula Trainings International and started Willow Body Works in 2013.
Since then she has assisted dozens of expectant parents through the torrential waters of labor and the many life changes that follow, providing compassionate, practical insight and much needed pain management. Rebecca has always felt a deep caring for those experiencing this milestone, beginning with her own family years ago - having watched over her mother during the birth of her siblings when Rebecca was a teen. Those memories were the foundation of her career.
Rebecca's technique works to unlock peoples' inherent ability to heal through myofascial techniques and deep tissue modalities including accupressure, neuromuscular therapy, pelvic stabilization and trigger point work. These manipulations jumpstart the body's own mechanisms for relaxation and release, "teaching" and resetting the tissue for increased function, range of motion, even sensation. In 2018, she looks forward to completing Professional Care Training with the Arvigo School of Maya Abdominal Massage and visiting The Farm Midwifery Assistant Program in TN, created by the infamous Ina Mae Gaskin. Currently Willow Body Works is being hosted, with gratitude, by Om Shanti Healing Arts in East Greenbush, NY where Rebecca obtained Usui Reiki certifications I & II and is a representative for Young Living Essential Oils.
