As a mother of two children and a licensed massage therapist, Rebecca Overson believes that "pregnancy can be enjoyed, not just endured." While pregnant with her first child, Rebecca had a hard time finding a bodywork specialist with the skill, sensitivity, and expertise required to meet her changing body's needs. It was this struggle that inspired her to open Salt Lake Prenatal Massage, a place that would provide expert support to other women during and after pregnancy.
Holding certifications in prenatal and postpartum massage, as well as a BA in spiritual psychology, Rebecca uses her personal and professional know-how to guide a staff of other licensed therapists and a pregnancy fitness specialist.
