Vongie Rabe thought her love for helping people would lead to a career in nursing or a night job as a freelance crossing guard, but along the way massage therapy presented a detour toward her true calling. Prior to graduating from the Healing Arts Institute in 2007, Rabe garnered an understanding of anatomy and physiology working as a medical assistant for eight years. This knowledge would later help her as she pursued her passion for healing through massage therapy, tailoring each treatment to the client’s individual needs. Professionally trained in a number of modalities, including acupressure, shiatsu, and Hawaiian lomilomi, Rabe helps clients decrease anxiety, alleviate low back pain, and enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow.
