Massage Therapist and Reiki Practitioner

My education included Swedish Massage along with Certification in Myofascial Release and Neuromuscular Therapy. I also had classes in Reflexology, Thai Massage and Sports Massage. Shortly after graduating from massage school, I became certified in Reiki 1 and then Reiki 2. I'm able to trace my Reiki lineage back to Sensei Takata, Sensei Hayashi, and Sensei Usui. I was employed at Jessica's Skin and Body Apothecary for almost four years. There, I was able to learn Aromatherapy, Hot Stone Massage, Thai Poultice Massage and other luxurious Spa Treatments. I am a Licensed Massage Therapist in the states of Washington and Michigan. I am a member in good standing of Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals (ABMP).

Kristin is awesome! I would recommend her to anyone. Sometimes we talk the entire time and sometimes we are silent, but it's never awkward. I've been known to fall asleep during my massages...so I'm thinking it's pretty relaxing if you know what I mean!

I like that Kristin listens when I tell her what specific areas need attention and then gives her all to help tame my sore muscles.

I have received massage work from Kristin since she joined Heart of Massage and continue to be impressed by both her skills and caring manner. She takes the time to listen to what you need and understands how to administer the right care to encourage healing and relaxation. I feel taken care of and rejuvenated after my massages, both physically and mentally. I’ve already booked my next appointment with her and would recommend her to anyone looking for deep tissue work.

I've been going to Kristin now for about a year and have never been disappointed! My career field causes some neck and back issues and can always rely on a great massage to help work out some of those knots. No matter the massage that you're looking for she most likely does it and does it well! Kristin has a flexible schedule and is super attentive and listens to what you'd like to have focused on each time.

Had a great massage

Kristin was amazing! My massage was so relaxing, exactly what I needed. I love that she let me choose my oil as I feel like the scent adds to the ambiance of the massage. As a person, she is professional, yet friendly and warm. I will definitely return and recommend Kristin to my friends.
