About Us

Hark is a literary term that simply means "listen." Chrystina and Sean, co-owners and therapists, seek to help you to deepen your ability to listen to your body and give it what it needs.

At Hark House, we provide massage therapy for folks who see massage as essential preventive and restorative medicine, not just an escape. Sure, there’s some escape that happens as a result, but we are looking for long-term results, not just a fuzzy feeling for an hour.

Like any system, the body needs to be regularly evaluated for functionality and efficiency. Our philosophy centers around knowing, and listening to, what’s going on in the body so that it can be addressed. 

​Massage can help the body to reset from painful, inefficient patterns we find ourselves inhabiting, whether that’s physical, mental, e...

Chrystina assessed my whole body on the table by her first touch. She gently and deftly addressed my areas of tension, finding places I had not noticed or been able to access on my own. When our session was over, I got up feeling renewed! I trust in her expertise by the quality of her touch, which allowed me to fully enjoy the experience. I'm looking forward to returning!

Christina is amazing. She is kind, friendly, strong, professional … and a master at getting those chunky muscles and spasms successfully calmed and loosened up!

Chrystina focuses on the muscles and tendons where they are tight and aching. She knows how to release the tension! John Ernst

She was very mindful of what hurts and worked to get those knots out. I felt like a new person when I left. Best yet I am scheduled to go back soon. Can’t wait.

He was very careful to match the massage to my expectations and needs.

Sean and I had a conversation about professionalism and boundaries that not too many people understand nowadays. This alone made me that much more comfortable there. I am glad that we chose this establishment. I will be going back if I’m ever in the area.

Loosened up things that I’d taken for granted as being tight.

I came to my appointment having had a hard morning. Sean was kind and supportive and I left in a different mood and body!
by Gary on Jan 30
For the past several years, I have depended on Sean to help keep me well. Every time I see him (which now averages about once per month) he asks me about specific areas that are of concern. He always addresses those problem areas. I have had many massage therapists over the years and without question, he is the most skilled. He is always fully present and it is clear that he gives 100% effort every time he shares his healing work with me.

Great massage. Customized to my individual needs.

Understanding of the personal physical issues that I like to focus on
by Jake on Dec 05
Sean flosses, smashes, and pressure surfs across your neuromuscular system like the Silver Surfer. He was doing something in my armpit and I felt it throbbing in my forearm. He knows what the heck he's doing. He's also intimidatingly cultured. Be prepared with some choice podcasts and novels to discuss.
by Eric on Dec 03
Sean is very good at what he does. A very talented massage therapist.
by Kimberly on Nov 05
Whether for recovery from strains, or a health maintenance massage .... over the many years that I have been seeking deep therapeutic massage from Sean he consistently digs deep and intuitively follows stressed muscles through their mesh of connectivity releasing chains of knots and fostering the retraining of muscle memory to achieve healthy outcomes where possible without the necessity of medication, injection or surgery. Deep therapeutic massage is not a luxury - it is an essential component of a well rounded health maintenance program/ritual.

I loved the artwork, the warm table, the ability of the massage therapist to move among a variety of techniques, combining deep pressure work with lighter, patient work. Pacing and sensitivity made me feel he has had a lot of experience to draw on and makes an effort to tailor the session to 'front and center ' needs of the patient. Results are great!!
