Body Wisdom School Faculty

Rachael Shipley

Rachael is an eternal student and lover of life! With over 12 years of experience in the massage field, she enjoys teaching her clients, students, friends, and newcomers how to understand their bodies and listen to the wisdom within.

She grew up surrounded by creativity with music and singing. As a singer, songwriter, and performer, she feels at home connecting with large and small groups of people, feeling the wonderful common thread we all share. This joy she brings into the healing art of massage and teaching.

Rachael graduated from Massage Therapy at Hamilton College in Omaha NE on the Dean’s List with Honors; and her passion of learning and exploring fuels her pursuit of advanced bodywork training, also abroad, such as private training with a traditional Thai Massage ‘master’ in Thailand.

Her diverse professional history includes working alongside former instructors at an upscale spa & health club in Omaha, and running her successful private practice since 2012. She knows the in’s and out’s of running a business from home, for corporations, or in public settings, including the licensing procedures of various states.

Prior to teaching at Body Wisdom Rachael lead group and couples classes in Thai yoga stretching and gave talks on Massage Therapy a guest speaker at public events.

Rachael feels blessed by massage as her career and is grateful to share her experience and knowledge with students and fellow professionals.

When not teaching or singing, you’ll probably find Rachael outside walking, meditating, or just enjoying the treasures Mother Nature has to offer. Rachael loves to joke and laugh and be a cheerleader for self-expression/inner truth/spirit.
