Rebecca Freehill, LMT
Rebecca is a Licensed Massage Therapist
She started out her massage career as the director of massage at Imperial Salon and Spa (beachside location). However, after 2 years she learned it was time to open her own practice as the path of the spa was not where she envisioned her future as an LMT. So, in November of 2014, she started working for herself and opened Healing Heart Wellness. In June 2018 she merged her business with Candice Gallion, DOM and changed the name of her massage practice to Healing Heart Massage and it is now owned by The Health Hub, Inc; the parent company. The Health Hub is co-owned by Candice and Rebecca.
Rebecca specializes in Myofascial Release (Mobilization) but can perform a multitude of different massage modalities. Rebecca is currently focusing on managing the businesses with her partner, Candice, and isn’t taking new clients currently. There are other LMTs working for Healing Heart and they each bring many specialties to the practice. Rebecca has a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of Central Florida and an Associate of Science in Massage Therapy from Keiser University. She prefers to help clients learn to manage pain on their own and focuses her treatments on getting her clients pain free, so they can focus on coming in for relaxing (or maintenance) massages.
