Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue, Neuromuscular Therapy, Pregnancy, Myofascial Release

Massage is a ‘hands-on’ treatment in which a therapist manipulates muscles and other soft tissues of the body to improve health and well-being. Varieties of massage range from gentle movement of muscles and other soft tissues to deeper manual techniques. Massage has been practiced as a healing therapy for centuries in nearly every culture around the world. It helps relieve muscle tension, reduce stress, and evoke feelings of calmness. Although massage affects the body as a whole, it particularly influences the activity of the musculoskeletal, circulatory, lymphatic, and nervous systems.

One hip in particular was so

painful that it interfered with

my daily activities, not to

mention hampered sports and

dancing.  I am a cautious

believer in ‘alternative therapies’,

but thought I’d give Kristen a

try.  She pretty much worked a

miracle, as the pain disappeared

entirely.  She is very

knowledgable and listens

carefully.  She absolutely

worked for me, and I

would recommend her

to anyone.

M.T.

Calm.  Safe.  Sacred.  Attentive.

These are the qualities in the air

when Kristen works, and are the

qualities evoked inside myself

when I’m getting a massage

from her.

When pain and tightness would

otherwise throw me (or my

back) into despair

and numbness, Kristen helps

me to return to a state

of flow.

I was very impressed by Kristen’s remarkable and wide ranging skills and perhaps even more importantly, her deep wisdom.  She was attuned to various physical and emotional needs in many different ways.  She is an incredible massage therapist.  The best ever for me by far.  I highly recommend her!
