Promoting full bodied awareness & healing.

My interest in the world of massage began with my own chronic pain in my body from years of misuse. From the years as a child falling down and out of trees, to teaching snowboarding, to traveling around with an overly heavy backpack for months, to building stone walls and patios, my body was worn down from being neglected. I never took any measure of self care while I was growing up and would just live with pain. At one point I had enough of having a hard time sitting up and out of bed at the age of 20 I started to seek regular massage and chiropractic care. Within months I was virtually pain free. This is why I went to school to be a massage therapist, because I know what its like to live in constant pain, and I would never wish that upon anyone. I graduated from Cortiva Insitiute in Watertown, Massachusetts in May of 2014. While I was attending school I learned many different modalities of massage including sports, deep tissue, Swedish, trigger point, and myofascial release. I also attended a seminar on how to treat and prevent sciatica this past February. I am extremely passionate about myofasical release because it is dealing directly with connective tissues such as fascia. Fascia is the connective tissue that runs throughout the body, under the skin, around muscles, bones and organs. When there are fascial adhesions in the body they can restrict range of movement, blood flow, nerve flow and cause discomfort and the feeling of being 'stuck'. With this training I am able to help release these build ups, and help the body return to homeostasis. This modality is also used to break up tight or stuck scar tissue from injuries or surgical procedures. Its amazing as a therapist to see my clients posture improve by being able to stand up a little taller and regain range of motion they once had.

I find that I do my best work with any chronic neck and shoulder injuries!

Boston Marathon 2014

I got the unique privilege of working on the Boston Marathon runners at the end of their 26 mile race. I had a great time working with them to deactivate any cramps, and helping them relax, cool and calm down from their strenuous run.

Sciatica Seminar

The seminar was taught by Garry Adkins, and we learned about effective ways to treat sciatic pain along with helping ease any discomfort in the sacroiliac joint.

Christina was very professional. Explained how my muscles reacted to her deep tissue therapy, and worked on the places that needed the most attention first. I would go back here over and over again. She's awesome.

Chistina is always very pleasant, asks questions and listens, remembers and follows up on previous visits, offers suggestions for improving conditions and is otherwise very professional. She is also very flexible and accomodating of my schedule which makes my visits even possible. I always get the best night's sleep after she works on me; I wish I could go more often! I appreciate her very much.
