REBECCA WISSMAN

Massage Therapist, Yacht Stewardess, Weleda Skin & Welbeing Advisor
Rebecca is Swedish and grew up in Stockholm. As a child she kept herself active with gymnastics, dancing and playing floor ball, a type of indoor hockey. Family holidays driving throughout Europe gave her a taste for traveling, which she has spent the last few years doing and where she met her partner from Kent and has now settled in Tenterden, loving the healthy lifestyle of being in the British countryside. Rebecca graduated in 2010 from Stockholm University with a degree in Cultural History. She then moved to an anthroposophical countryside village working with artists and found herself inspired by holistic treatments and biodynamic farming. Noticing how people lived in harmony with nature she wanted to become a holistic therapist one day. Rebecca trained as a military field medic in the north of Sweden and worked as a carer in her early career developing a deeper understanding of ageing, living with illness and injuries and went on to complete her studies in anatomy, physiology and massage therapy at Axelsons Gymnastic institute in Sweden 2017. She has since then taken on training in various massage techniques and beauty treatments. Rebecca has treated numerous clients with pains and injuries as well as massage for relaxation. Since qualifying she has treated clients in various locations, such as ski resorts, onboard luxury yachts, at Spa’s and offices. Rebecca is offering massage services either as a therapeutic treatment aimed for specific needs or a relaxing/de-stressing massage. She is also a Weleda Wellbeing Advisor and uses their skin products in her treatments. Rebecca is fully qualified and insured with Balens Ltd.
