At A Healing Touch we are committed to excellence in every aspect and our therapists are no exception. All of our therapists are licensed through the North Carolina Board of Massage and Bodywork Therapy. Our therapists are diligent about listening to each individual client’s needs and customizing each massage to treat the root cause of pain, not just the symptoms. We are very selective with our therapists to ensure our clients receive the highest quality massage possible.
Rachael Schrader Eddleman NCLMBT #3053 is the lead therapist at A Healing Touch and has been a licensed massage therapist since 2002. She graduated from UNC at Charlotte in 1999 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. She then continued on to the New York Institute of Massage.
Rachael has specialized her practice in Integrative Therapy, Prenatal Massage, Fertility Massage Specialist, Swedish Deep Tissue Therapy, Massage for People Living with Cancer, Hot Stone Therapy, and Medicupping.
What makes her different from other therapists in the area? Rachael is an athlete and knows what gets sore and how to manipulate the muscle tissue to give the perfect release of tension and stress. Her massage is more about muscle tissue recovery and reduction of myofascial scar tissue. She knows what questions to ask to not only aid in alleviating symptoms but get to the root of the problem. She doesn’t just treat the symptoms; she looks for the cause. When you treat the cause of the problem the symptoms will go away.
Rachael started teaching massage at South Piedmont Community College in Spring 2012. She has the desire to pass on the knowledge that has grown her business over the last 10 years.

With a passion for massage and a gentle spirit, Katelyn brings a truly therapeutic energy into every session. She is very attentive to her clients’ needs and helping to resolve the problems, not just the symptoms. Katelyn began contracting with us in November and we are excited to say that she will now be with us three days a week. Katelyn will now be available on Mondays 12pm-7pm, Wednesdays 9am-2pm, and Thursdays 9am-3pm.
Emily Deese NCLMBT #15794 graduated from South Piedmont Community College with a Degree in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork. She is certified in Swedish, Deep Tissue, Advanced Sports, Neuromuscular Therapy, and Spa Techniques and is educated in Fertility, Infant, Prenatal, and Bindegeweb Massage. Emily had the unique opportunity of studying Bindegeweb massage under one of the nation's most well-known therapists in this field. This method allows the therapist to manipulate the nervous system and relieve pain without using deep work. Emily is an excellent therapist for clients who struggle with pain but do not enjoy deep tissue massage. Emily is available on Tuesdays from 10am-5pm.
