"diversity is the spice of life"

I love people. I enjoy my work almost as much as my clients do. This world would be a better place if everyone could have the enjoyment of weekly massages. Sometimes I like to donate my hands to charity and help humanity destress without expecting anything in return.

I specialize in Shiatsu, Reiki, myofascial release, Trigger Point therapy, MET (muscle energy technique), assessment and response to biofeedback during the massage. If you are living with chronic pain, tightness, or loss of range of motion, please don't hesitate to book a session. You will be glad you did!

My son is my muse and inspiration in life. 

Continued education is a passion of mine, even when the State didn't require continued education to retain my license I still continued taking courses to better my self in my profession so I can give more and improve my ability to help clients.

Ideal Bodyworks Massage is a dream of mine that I have been nurturing and watch grow over the years. There is now a home base in Holland. Before I was completely mobile, I service corporate out calls and events. Currently Ideal Bodyworks is a proud member of LOCAL FIRST.

Christina is a very talented therapist and obviously enjoys her work. She takes classes to learn new techniques and enhance her skills. Her massages are amazing! This business is growing because all of the therapists are client focused and they are constantly adding new services to enhance wellness.

This was the best massage I have ever had. Kristina truly has a gift! I came in in a lot of neck and shoulder pain and improved substantially after one visit. I will be back next week while she works out my issues. Thank you.
