About Me

Massage Therapist and Counsellor Totnes Devon


Welcome to Rachel Krauss Therapies

Hello and welcome, I'm Rachel.

I opened Rachel Krauss Therapies in March 2019, bringing together my work in counselling and remedial massage therapy. Over the past 10 years, I have had the opportunity to work both in the UK and abroad, working and learning alongside other therapists who share my passion for providing support on an individual and personal level. My practice is now based in the heart of beautiful Totnes town where I offer counselling to both young people and adults, as well as remedial massage therapy to those experiencing chronic pain, injuries, stress and tension in their bodies.

As a counsellor, I have previously worked with charities and schools, as well as in private practice. I have also worked extensively as a remedial and soft tissue massage therapist with sports teams and universities, as well as with people experiencing chronic pain, postural issues, anxiety and trauma.

I am passionate about working with people of all ages, and offer a down to earth, welcoming and relaxed space to work together.


My Philosophy

For many of us, our physical and emotional health can often slip to the bottom of the list when life gets hectic and stressful. My role is to support you in being able to regain this balance.

Being able to look after ourselves means we not only have more resources and resilience for ourselves as individuals, but we have more energy and compassion to give to others.

Improving our physical health can have a profound effect on our mental health and vice versa. My own experience of both therapies has been life-changing and it is for this reason that I chose to train in counselling and massage therapy.

I look forward to working with you to enable the changes that you want to see.
