Christina graduated from California State University, Fresno with a Bachelors of Science in Physical Education.  She worked for many years as a fitness trainer,

In 2000 Christina was suffering from frequent migraines and neck pain which were a result of a whiplash injury compounded by an ergonomically incorrect office situation.

 
She experienced her first deep tissue massage and was amazed at how her body felt. She began receiving massage on a weekly basis and the migraines disappeared. Since that first massage session Christina felt a calling to the field of bodywork.  It wasn't until 2003 that she had the opportunity to go to massage school.

Having a background in kinesiology, anatomy and physiology made the transition to massage therapist very easy.  She started her course work at Santa Barbara Bodyworks in 2003 and graduated in Winter of 2003 as a somatic practitioner.  The basics were covered in massage school and Christina's need to know more about different techniques prompted her to take advanced course work.  

She started her own business in Santa Barbara in 2004 and then moved to Sacramento a few years later.   Christina Miranda Massage was started in the Greenhaven / Pocket area  of Sacramento in 2007.  The summer of 2018 she chose to move her massage therapy business into Elk Grove, CA to be closer to home for the family and renamed her business Catalyst Bodywork Studio.    

Christina views bodywork as a direct way of improving the client's quality of life and reducing the causes of discomfort and pain. She focuses on structural and movement-based bodywork methods.

I went in for tension headaches from reading on my device. Christina knew exactly what to do to help. She worked all the muscles in the back of my head and then stretched my chest and helped with my rounded shoulders. She also gave me tips as what to do to help myself. I highly recommend her!

Christina has the ability to get right to the root of your needs for therapeutic massage therapy and also just provide a regular massage if that is what you need. Can’t say enough about her abilities. Best massage therapist I have ever been to.
