My journey as a bodyworker began while I was attending Engineering School at UVA. I saw a flyer in town for the Virginia School of Massage in Charlottesville, VA and decided to go to massage school simultaneously during college and see where my career would lead me. Unfortunately, I had a little accident with a finger right before the final exam which promptly ended the possibility of that career. So I became a successful engineer with jobs in hazardous waste management, land development, construction and park and recreation facility development. However, when I moved to Boulder and took some time off of work to be home with my three young children, I realized that there was a void in my work and I wanted something greater, some kind of service that would fulfill my heart. I remembered that long lost dream of being a massage therapist and my finger had healed after the years, so I went back to school in 2010 at the Massage Therapy Institute of Colorado and became a certified massage therapist, and re-launched my career in the healing arts.

In my private practice, my goal is to listen carefully to my clients, and then integrate my knowledge, experience and intuition into sessions that feel both nurturing and supportive.  I believe strongly that the gift of healing is innately born within each of us. My job is to support you in your own healing journey. And wow, doesn't it feel fantastic when you break through your own limitations - whether physical pain/illness and/or emotional blocks - to live with more vitality, joy and gratitude for yourself?!

Many of my sessions start with a blend of the most common forms of therapeutic massage, including Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue, Swedish and Neuromuscular Therapy.  My studies in structural engineering in college certainly was a natural transition to understand and apply to working with the structure of the body.


What makes my own work unique and transformational is adding my unique style of energy healing into my sessions. Similar to the blending of therapeutic massage forms, I love to integrate all of the forms of energy healing that I have studied and practiced over the years into a nameless form.  I was deeply inspired and intrigued with all of my studies in physics in high school and college which informed me of my natural abilities to understand and work with energies.  My studies in physics were certainly a gift that I now also apply to the energy field of the human body in bodywork.  Common forms of energy work that I often tap into are Reiki, Access Consciousness and Shamanic Healing, but most powerful transformations are always when my client and I step into the mystery of the unknown.


One more unique additions to my work is the Acutonics. Acutonics is the application of precisely calibrated tuning forks on and around the body.  The activated forks are placed on acupuncture points (like acupuncture without the needles!), chakras and/or in the auric field.  It is a form of sound healing that combines both the ancient wisdom of the East and archetypal astrology, which is relevant to our modern day life in the West. 


The common thread among everything that I bring to a session is simply plain old love from the heart.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

Caring, giving, listens to me and listens to my body.
by Kelly on Feb 23
I had the 90 minute massage and it was heaven. I felt relaxed and rejuvenated afterward. I felt very open too afterward. Christina is great. She has passion for what she does and I like that she comes from an engineering background. I feel like the way that part of her brain works really informs how she approaches understanding body, in addition to the intuitive and heartfelt approach one would expect from a body worker. I highly recommend her.

Christina is an amazing artist and healer.:-) There was a little outside noise but did not distract from the experience.

I really enjoyed my massage. Nice room, very quiet and relaxing. The heated massage table is awesome! And the body work has already helped so much! It was a really great experience. Thank you!!

Connecting on the personal level and feeling accepted was wonderful. Christina, you also helped me connect with my daughter through the use of Jasmine,.during the massage. The deep yearning for my Daughter Ana came easily as you brushed that Jasmine over my forehead, and at that moment I was reaching out her in China! I will forever have that connection. I'm going to go find some jasmine oil today. Your skill was masterful.

My body was "radiating" after Christina worked on me!

The treatment space feels very clear & light! As always I appreciate Christine's nurturing approach to her work. Pressure overall could be deeper for my needs, but I understand everyone's system integrates differently and appreciated receiving what Christine had to offer.
