Kristine Fotland began her career as a Massage Therapist in 2016, inspired by her own self-care journey.  Kristine spent over 20 years in stressful desk jobs and business management, all the while neglecting her own personal care. In 2015, Kristine experienced firsthand the life-changing cumulative results of regular massage. This experience led her to a career change, and she began her massage education at Pinnacle Career Institute in Kansas City, Missouri in 2016.  Immediately, Kristine's passion for bodywork led her to continue her education and open her own practice in the Midwest.  Her practice grew quickly, pulling her back into a Business Management role.  She felt the business operations distracted from her focus on clients and chose to simplify by closing her large practice (Warrior Bodywork & Massage), to continue her career on a smaller, but more focused and personalized scale.  After downsizing, Kristine began to mentor and educate future Massage Therapists in her role as Clinic Manager at the Wellspring School of Allied Health.  

In 2020, amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, Kristine sold her small Midwest Practice, and moved her family back to her home in the beautiful Central Valley of California.  Kristine and her family missed the West Coast and take comfort in being back home where they were born and raised.  Kristine and her daughter Ashley are excited to build a small practice as Legacy Massage and Wellness, located in Downtown Hanford, California.  

Kristine has maintained Five Star reviews by administering a customized experience using the techniques and expertise of her training, as well as her life experience and intuition.  Her goal is to fully assess the imbalances of the body, give the massage you and your body need at that moment, and develop a plan of future care to help your body achieve its full wellness potential.  Kristine's education and experience, combined with her intuitive and friendly approach, creates the perfect environment for healing and wellness. 

Kristine delivers a range of techniques and styles including Swedish, Prenatal, Hot Stone, Aromatherapy, Deep Tissue, Sports, Trigger Point, Reflexology, Cupping, and Myofascial Release Massage Therapies.  Kristine also offers Energetic Healing services to established clients if requested.

My massage was amazing! Kristine is so knowledgeable of the body and really took her time explaining why I had certain hurts and how she could treat them. I rebooked and am looking forward to my next appointment.

She is the best. I tried her one time and now I can’t go anyplace else.

Kristine absolutely made my day. I was in desperate need of a massage as I work in a high pressure/high stress industry. She took the time to listen and during my massage really focus on the areas that had been giving me trouble. I left feeling relaxed and refreshed. Whether your new to massages or a seasoned vet, go see her!!
