Rebecca Shaw, an athlete herself and one devoted to a body-building lifestyle for nearly 30 years, has opened the doors to such a healing process by way of her Dreams Massage and BodyWorks in Middleburg Heights…

Shaw specializes in deep tissue/sports massage, which revives tired, overused and sore muscles from sports.

Lymph drainage therapy pulls bruising and congestive lactic acid out of tissues at an increased rate, while boosting the immune system.

Former Browns players Andra Davis and Sean Jones have been clients.

Shaw also works with high school and college athletes. Her son Kenny, 23, a former high school pitcher at Berea High and Tiffin University, also has greatly benefited from his mom’s “hands-on” knowledge.
