Hello everyone, I’m Christine McGovern, and I am a professional licensed massage therapist and aromatherapist who helps people like you feel better and reduce their pain. As a Lymphatic Massage Specialist, my focus is to help your body heal faster by helping to remove wastes and toxins from your system, reducing your pain, and letting your body naturally reset and open to loving healing.

Whether it’s post-surgical lymphatic drainage or just a tune up, I use lymphatic massage and tuning fork therapy to help people feel whole and happy. I help people improve their healing after removal of lymph nodes and elective surgery, like lipo/tummy tucks.

I’ve been doing this particular type of massage for several years now, and I think it would help if I explained how I got here.

I was already on the path to alternative and holistic medicine when my son was placed on medication at five years old for ADHD. Over the years, I watched him get passed from doctor to doctor, medicine after medicine that did nothing to help him. I was threatened and coerced into keeping him on these drugs.

It took years, but I finally found a place that would help me get him off all those drugs and teach him the habits and skills that would let him function. Combining this with herbs, essential oils, and massage, he learned to live a balanced life. Now, at 28, he is an EMT and fireman, and I couldn’t be more proud.

The whole experience put me off western medicine, made me distrustful of the conventional medicine mindset. Don’t get me wrong, western medicine has its place, especially in emergency medicine. For me, western medicine compartmentalizes everything and doesn’t treat people as a whole. Everything in the body is connected and can affect the function of other parts of the body.

Over the years, I studied massage therapy, obtaining specialized training and top-level certification in Lymphatic Drainage Massage that places me among a tiny group of people trained to give this specialized technique.

I added several trainings in tuning fork therapy to utilize the healing power of sound and vibration to stimulate healing. It works on a pain-free level for people in severe pain or would like to try acupuncture (and are fearful of the needles). I add this therapy to many of my sessions to help amplify the effect of lymphatic massage and reflexology.

The best massages I have ever received! Christine really takes the time to get to know your needs and addresses them. The environment is extremely relaxing and she has the hands of an angel! What I love most is she is not a clock watcher. She goes based off your body's needs, not the clock. I would highly recommend her services! In fact, I already have!
