Rebecca Duggan, LMT
Rebecca graduated from Hesser College of Portsmouth, NH in 2008 and became a Licensed Massage Therapist in January 2009. She immediately began working alongside chiropractors Dr. Bart and Pam Rzepa in Stratham, NH.
While working in the chiropractic world, Rebecca has gained a vast knowledge of how the body works and how to treat a variety of injuries. She has been fortunate enough to aid many people in their journey to wellness, and has made it her mission to continue to do so here at Body Mechanix.
Rebecca believes in the body’s incredible ability to heal itself and believes that everyone has the power to unleash that ability with the help of therapeutic massage. Each session is carefully planned and customized to each client’s specific needs to ensure their highest healing potential.
For Rebecca, her love for massage came naturally at a young age. She would always find herself rubbing the shoulders of loved ones to alleviate their pains and worries. From there, it grew into a passion in which she gratefully has turned into a career.
As a homegrown New Hampshire native, she resides in Farmington, NH with Chris, her husband-to-be, their two cats, Joey and Bentley, as well as their 15 chickens. In her spare time, she enjoys most days in the outdoors fishing, tending to her garden, or wandering in the woods. She also enjoys spending quality time with her family and friends.

Massage therapy during pregnancy is a wonderful complementary choice for prenatal care. It is a healthy way to reduce stress and promote overall wellness. Massage relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches and edema (or swelling).
In addition, massage for pregnant women reduces stress on weight-bearing joints, encourages blood and lymph circulation, helps to relax nervous tension — which aids in better sleep — and can help relieve depression or anxiety caused by hormonal changes.
Swedish massage therapy is the modality that comes to mind when most people think about massage. As the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
