Rachel Cassidy, MS

My name is Rachel.  I’m a theatre nerd, musician, a story teller, reader, golfer, builder of community, holder of space, and a fixer. I’ve been married for almost 19 years to my husband who just retired from flying jets for the Navy.  I’m a mom of two. 

Desiring to facilitate freedom and complete health and wellness in people has been something I have been passionate about since I was young.  I’ve been a part of the health, wellness, and fitness industries for over 20 years.  My interest has always been in supporting the whole person… physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.  That is how I have approached working with my clients throughout my career.  Each one has a ripple effect on the others and all are important.  It’s my desire for people to heal in a way that allows them to live their lives from a space of whole health, full freedom, and complete wellness. 

Physical and emotional trauma can get stuck in our bodies.  This can cause us to live in a place of incomplete wholeness.  This not only affects our emotional and mental health, but impacts our physical health as well, opening us up to physical discomfort, potential injury, or illnesses.  I use physical and energy work  to help support people in releasing these trapped emotions or trauma in a way that allows them to live, completely, from a place of love and hope.  This can help improve physical symptoms a person may have lived with for years with no explanation.  It can help bring joy back into relationships, create new confidence and provide freedom for self-expression. All of these, in turn, allows us to live a lifestyle by fully embracing new opportunities with less reservation, building confidence to walk into auditions, interviews, parties, or other spaces expressing our true selves, having a fuller understanding of exponential value and worth while leaving behind things that hold us back.  We are all worth having wellness.  I’m thrilled to join this beautiful team at SoulWorks and look forward to supporting you.
