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 Deep tissue, 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.

I like that she explained what muscles in my shoulders were tight and how they effected my hands. She also explained what the pop in my shoulder was. (A knot in the muscle) She also gave tips for at home to help prevent potential carpal tunnel and tennis elbow.

I always leave feeling relaxed when I get done with a massage with Christina. She has a great technique to get the knots out of my muscles.
