Rita is an experienced therapist with a passion for helping her clients maintain their bodies in peak performance.Whether you are an athlete overcoming pain or injury, a pregnant mother suffering from sciatica, or a nine-to-fiver dealing with stress and the side effects of deskwork, Rita understands that every client has their own unique need for massage.
If there is one thing bodywork as taught her, it is that there is no such thing as a ‘quick fix’ so she helps her clients create treatment plans that include massage, stretching and at-home self maintenance. Rita specializes in myofascial release and trigger point therapy. She also has enjoys sports massage and prenatal massage.
Rita graduated from The Lauterstein-Conway School of Massage in 2012, but her interest in massage therapy began when she was only 13. Having a mom that practices massage therapy gave her a unique insight to the power of bodywork that fueled her passion at a young age.
Rita was born in Denver but has grown to love everything that the city of Austin has to offer. When she is not in the treatment room, she can be found enjoying the great outdoors, catching a live show, or finding the next greatest food truck.
I had a 90 minute massage with Rita and cannot recommend her enough! Before the massage began we talked about the areas I preferred that she focus on, any medical injuries or sensitivities, as well as the type of pressure I preferred. As I wanted the focus to be my shoulders and upper-back, Rita began in that region after first applying a hot towel pack to add to my comfort. She applied a good amount of extra firm pressure and then modified as she moved to other areas. Needless to say, I passed out fairly quickly. I walked into my appointment feeling like my shoulders were above my ears and I walked out feeling about two inches taller. The entire experience was utterly wonderful and I can’t wait to book my next appointment.
