About Us

I cater each treatment to the specifics of the needs of the client. Depending on what your body needs I work with you to find a balance of therapy and relaxation.

Although I am known for having a heavy hand (deeper work) I try to balance that with lots of flushing and I do my best to encourage feedback to ensure I do not go outside of your comfort level. 

I value your time and your budget and truly want you to leave feeling as though you have gained mobility and decreased tension from before you walked through the office doors. 

 

Our office is extremely family friendly! We have an adjoining playroom where the littles are welcome to enjoy and/or they can come and go into the treatment room as they see fit. 

Nursing babies are also welcomed and should a baby need to nurse during treatment ...

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Everything I needed and more! Highly recommend, especially if you’re looking for someone to actually get deep into your muscles and knots! I’m 29 weeks pregnant and she helped relieve some back pain and headaches I was having!

    Excellent massage, really felt like she was getting to muscles that needed it. Will definitely be back and will recommend to family and friends!

  • My visit with Northern Roots was awesome. I'm in my 3rd trimester of my 3rd pregnancy. Many places have made the decision to cancel a prenatal massage, given the current Pandemic. Kristen took the appropriate measures and made me feel safe with my decision to get a massage in the middle of the pandemic...She was attentive, able to provide attention to all of my needed / stressed areas and was respectful of the time. I was comfortable the entire time (room temp, quietness, massage, etc.). I'd highly recommend Kristen pregnant or not - you'll definitely walk out happy.

    Best massage therapist ever!

  • Kirsten is the BEST and fixes me every time.

    Kirsten’s professionalism and skills far surpass any massage I have ever received. Her office is warm and inviting and Kirsten really takes time and care to address any concerns or questions. Kirsten finds the perfect balance between relaxation and treatment.

  • Kirsten is the greatest! I asked for a mix of therapeutic and relaxing massage and I got just that. I feel both more mobile and more grounded. She's so talented!

    Kirsten has magic hands. A healer of aches and pains, and spirits as well.

  • I had an incredibly amazing prenatal massage with Kirsten. 10/10 would recommend and will be returning.

    Kirsten did an amazing job - best massage I have ever had. She took note of all of my areas of concern and went to work immediately. Her whole-body approach allowed me to not only feel better in the areas I thought the discomfort was coming from, but also allowed the rest of my body to completely relax and release tension everywhere. Will be going back in two weeks and highly recommend her!

Kristen is the absolute best there is, hands down. I have been getting therapeutic massage for due to muscular issues and a back injury for years and nobody compares to Kristen. After massage with her, I was actually able to get on the floor to play with my 5 year old. Highly recommend!

I'd recommend Kirsten in a heartbeat. I felt limber and relaxed at the end of my prenatal session. I raved about my massage when I got home! She understands moms-to-be and takes great care and precision to work out kinks. I'll absolutely be booking again. In terms of ambiance, perhaps slightly dimmer with aroma therapy though I realize not everyone likes that!

Kristen is a professional. She is warm and caring. My wife has been going to her for years. Her massages have impact. I feel so much better. She found stress in my shoulders and back I didn't know I had. I have an issue with my calves and she took care not to be too aggressive but days later my calves feel great! After my muscles warmed up she skillfully treated them so they do not bother me as much. I would recommend Kristen to anyone who has stress in their life and just needs a "reset" so you can get back on track.

This was my first massage with Kirsten at Northern Birth Roots, but it definitely won't be my last! I have been having chronic pain and Kirsten helped so much. She found and relieved pain that I had just accepted as part of my everyday life. Beautiful and relaxing space and top-notch service.

This was the best massage I have ever had! Kirsten was amazing! I appreciated that before the massage began, she asked for some info from me, informed me that she would follow my lead as far as conversing goes (whether I wanted to talk or just zone out), and got a sense for the type of pressure I preferred. Then during the massage she checked in periodically to make sure the pressure was good and I was doing well. She was super in tune, professional, and obviously experienced and knowledgeable! I will be back!
