Meet Our Massage Team

Chiropractic and massage therapy are two holistic therapies that share a common goal: to treat the whole person rather than symptoms through natural, hands-on, drug-free techniques. Call today to schedule your massage!

Meet our Fredericton Family Registered Massage Therapists

Rachel van Raalte – Registered Massage Therapist

Rachel van Raalte, RMT Fredericton

Rachel van Raalte, RMT

It was during high school that I was made aware of society’s growing awareness and need for alternative health care. I was fortunate enough to know what I wanted for a career – Massage Therapy!

Since graduating from the Atlantic College of Therapeutic Massage in 2005, I have worked in both clinical and spa environments. I also trained at the Steiner Academy in London, England to specialize in spa treatments before working at sea for Princess Cruises.

My passion is practicing here at Fredericton Family Chiropractic: A Creating Wellness Centre. Each of my treatments is tailored to each individual. My areas of expertise include Swedish/ Therapeutic and sports massage, TMJ disorder (jaw pain), prenatal, myofascial release, rehabilitation as well as relaxation.

Faith and family are a huge part of my life. I have been blessed with a supportive husband, Matt, along with two healthy, energetic boys, Koen and Grayson. I enjoy staying active between fitness classes at the gym and chasing after my boys!

I am so appreciative for each and every client I have had the privilege of treating over the years. If you have yet to experience Massage Therapy, let me encourage you to give it a try.  It is believed that over 80% of diseases are brought on by stress. Call our office today and experience the true benefits of therapeutic massage!

Be well!

Rachel van Raalte

Rebecca Willson – Registered Massage Therapist

I am absolutely thrilled to be the newest addition to the Wellness Team at Fredericton Family Chiropractic! I first came to the clinic as a patient and quickly embraced all that was offered. The Lifebook program offered through the office encouraged me and increased my confidence to reach higher in all aspects of my life.

I have been a Registered Massage Therapist since 2005 and have loved every minute of it. Massage Therapy was a career change for me – a pursuit of passion. Originally from Victoria, BC I moved to Fredericton to complete my Degree in Forest Management. To make a long story short, I fell in love and took a great leap of faith; following my heart, staying east and starting a new career! I went from liking my career to being passionate and excited about my profession!

Since graduating I have worked in both multi-disciplinary offices and in my own private practice. One of my favorite parts about being an RMT is the variation throughout the day. I love meeting new people and helping improve their health.

What is important to me professionally? I always want to be a positive part of your day! Staying current through continuing education allows me to provide you with the best possible care. I enjoy taking courses, learning new techniques and over the past few years have increased my passion and skill in fascial release, pain management and rehabilitation. I can say with all honesty that I wake up every day excited to start my work day- How amazing is that?

What is important to me personally? My family, friends and of course the adventures we enjoy together. I love to travel, explore new places and am always up for a fun challenge. Being healthy and active is important to me as well as taking care of my body through proper nutrition, regular Massage and Chiropractic. My proudest personal accomplishments so far have been the completion of four Tough Mudder courses (Toronto/Boston/Montreal and Main) in the past years

I feel truly fortunate to have found a profession I am passionate about. I look forwards to meeting you.

Follow your heart and expect the best life has to offer.

In good health,

Rebecca Willson

In 2016 I graduated from Eastern College with a 2200 hour Massage Therapy Diploma. I am a current member in good standing with the CMTNB and ANBMT.

During my training as a Massage Therapist, I became more and more passionate about helping my clients manage their pain, stress and injuries with therapeutic massage. I am eager to share my expertise and passion with you.

I perform moderate to deep pressure massage and tailor treatments to your individual needs. I offer therapeutic, Swedish, deep tissue and relaxation massage as well as trigger point therapy, and I also incorporate home care at the end of each treatment to ensure the benefits of massage are ongoing. I look forward to increasing my knowledge through continuing education and working with each of my clients.

I am convinced that therapeutic massage is conducive to a healthy body and mind. Now is the time to see what massage therapy can do for you!

Call the clinic today to book an appointment.

Until we meet,

Palma Dean, RMT
