Christine (Chris) Smith is a former NSCA Certified Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor who found her passion for massage through fitness training. Noticing how postural deviations and muscle imbalances could easily lead to instability and injury, she began massaging to help correct some of these issues so that clients could achieve greater results with their fitness goals.

Being able to help people achieve healthier, more active lifestyles free from pain and injury, Chris quickly switched her focus from Fitness training to Massage and has been practicing as a Full Time Licensed Professional Massage Therapist specializing in Therapeutic, Restorative Massage since 2013.

Very personable and highly skilled.

More than a massage. More like Physical Therapy.
by Tana on Aug 14
I ask for more of a deep tissue massage to help with my back pain from the way I work. She does a great job of getting those knots out! If I don't need anything heavy duty, I can have a nice relaxing massage too. She's very thorough with problem areas.

Stretching muscle and eliminating stiffness in shoulder.

Christine was very (and I mean VERY) highly recommended by a good friend who I know has similar spine ailments to my own. She is quite possible the best therapist I have ever seen. My second appointment can't come soon enough!

She was wonderful!

Simply amazing massage. Get on her schedule! Chris has the most thorough massage style I've ever experienced. She is so knowledgeable about physiology that I end up learning something new about my body with every massage. She custom tailors each session to exactly what my body needs. If I need deep tissue she does that. If we need stretching thrown in there she's got it. She intuitively finds areas that need attention even if we didn't discuss that area in our chat before the massage. Her massages raise the bar for what to expect from a massage.

Christine is great at finding every knot and working them out. She is a tension reliever! It’s so relaxing.
