"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.

The intuitive ability to recognize and address areas of weakness... and recommendations for improvement
by Jeremiah C. on Nov 12
Without verbally expressing where my pain was, Christina was able to manually locate and address key problem areas. For me, this demonstrates a high level of proficiency and superior skill. In my humble opinion, she truly is an expert and I continue to recommend her to friends and family!

This has power to change your life...become more positive person and achieve more. Christina is just amazing... time just flew by ... you become a jello and wish that someone else drives you home :-). Share as much of your health / body issues / observations with her...most likely Chrisitna has answer or good suggestion for you. Christina has ton of experience and knowledgeable about the human body / bones and muscle groups. She is expert at finding and bursting the knots... so make sure you have a nice tub bath when you go home so the lymphatic system will become more active to drain the lactic acid released from the knots. Make sure you drink lots of water before and after massage.
