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).

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

I loved everything.

Kristin is absolutely amazing! She made me feel so comfortable, listened to what I liked and didn’t like about massage and made excellent recommendations for future visits. I look forward to booking another massage now that I have found the perfect massage therapist for me!

Came in with lower back pain from stress. She worked on it and you could tell that she did as it felt almost bruised the rest of the day. But...the next morning it was all but gone and I was back to my normal routine. I know she could do an amazing and relaxing massage, but this time I needed my lower back...back in business! I would highly recommend.

Kristin makes the experience very comfortable and relaxing. She's easy to talk to but doesn't talk your ear off during the massage.

Enjoyed the conversation, very open and fun

Overall, no major complaints. I know the first time visit can be somewhat awkward, and the massages tend to improve with each visit as the masseuse zones in on pressure, areas of concern, etc. Kristin was super sweet and calming. I did feel like the massage itself was a little dull. I felt relaxed after, but nothing to write home about.
