Rebecca Wingebach, LMT, Clinical Herbalist
My practice is based on the belief that when people feel better they do better. It is my mission to help people optimize their health utilizing massage, herbalism, meditation, nutrition, and other Vitalist Practices. It all began after eight years as a stay at home mom, when I decided to put my degree in Political Science to good use and become a massage therapist. Today I have a rewarding private practice in Mullen Nebraska and volunteer as a staff herbalist at the Wild Roots People's Clinic in Omaha Nebraska. It has been an exciting and rewarding adventure.
I graduated from The Universal College of Healing Arts in 2015 and opened Sandhills Horizon Massage and Botanicals that summer. To keep life interesting in the beautiful but isolated Sandhills of Nebraska, I followed my growing fascination with plant medicine, and began Rosemary Gladstar’s Science and Art of Herbalism home study program shortly after graduating massage school. My independent studies were supplemented by a year of monthly classes lead by Registered Herbalist Kate Boddman, AHG and I completed both in 2017.
I am constantly working to expand my massage and herbal skill. In 2019 I received specialized training in Japan Sen Herbal Thai Massage. I completed the Herbal Academy's Advanced Herbal Course in 2020 and teach classes locally geared towards making herbalism accessible to everyone. I am currently enrolled in the Acorn School of Herbal Medicine as a student of Heather Luna and Paul Bergner in their program, Advanced Herbalism in the Vitalist Tradition. I believe blending bodywork and herbalism with mindfulness practices and nutrition can create benefits that surpass any modality alone; all shine as tools to optimize wellbeing and enhance health.
