About Rebecca

Hey there! My name is  Rebecca de Azevedo Overson.

Let me share a bit of my journey with you…

I started my massage career in 1995 at the ripe age of 18, proceeded to struggle for 8 years to make a living, and finally quit because I needed steady income. Massage wasn’t cutting it. 

(I know, not the happiest story. But stay with me……)

I ended up spending the next 5+ years in business administration and learned a LOT about sales, marketing, operations, graphic design, HR, and more.

I then  left that career to be a mom and start my new work-from-home relationship coaching practice, while my husband supported us.

That was my indefinite “plan”…

me and my babies in 2009, in my new Prenatal Massage Office

Then, as a young mom with two babies under 2, and a slow-growing coaching practice, my family suddently became desperate for income when my then-husband’s real estate business evaporated in the recession of 2008.

I went back to massage, this time with a plan, strategy, business skills, and big mission to help make life easier for pregnant women.

Inspired by my very empowering birth experiences, I created a successful prenatal massage practice almost overnight, which quickly grew into a multi-therapist clinic in Salt Lake City, Utah.  In addition to being sought out for prenatal and postpartum massage, I became a Birth Doula, and a Fertility Massage Specialist. My staff and I served over 10,000 women ,offering massage, yoga, birth doula services, childbirth education, and more.

It was a dream come true. I made it happen! I did it!

Then…knowing something else was “next” for me, I sold my practice, Salt Lake Prenatal Massage,  in March 2018. 

 I understand firsthand the challenges that  massage therapists face when it comes to building a successful business of their own, and I now help others through my 8-week “Rock Your Massage Practice Academy” – a mentoring program to help therapists build a thriving practice of their own.

How can I help YOU?
