About Us

I firmly believe in the therapeutic power of touch. When babies are born they require nurturing touch throughout their development or else they do not thrive. As we grow older, we still need that caring and skillful interaction, unfortunately our culture does not always allow the time or space for it. Because of this, we suffer in many different ways be it mentally, emotionally, or physically. Massage is my way of bringing that restorative touch back into people's lives. I enjoy being a person of service on the wellness journeys of others. Let's work together to find out how I can be of service to you on your path!

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Very clean and comfortable space; everyone I encountered there was friendly and helpful.

    It's in an office block, so that's what to expect, but Christa has been able to create a small oasis in that space.

  • Friendly.

    Excellent!!!

  • The office is bright, clean, and modern. The office/business manager was very professional, smiled upon greeting, and was most helpful. I was appreciative of the reminder email and the text message earlier in the day, prior to my appointment. Congratulations to Tamer for adding massage, along with nutrition, to his successful physical therapy operation.

    Ambience of the massageroom is wonderful, but it’s in a medical/office building, also housing an IRS office. Not the stuff relaxation is made of. Cold, impersonal and you have to pay for parking — even with validation. Lot attendant seemed overwhelmed. Restroom down the hall, outside the massage room and the physical therapy office. So, if you needed a restroom during massage, you’d have to get fully dressed.

  • The folks st ISSA are very friendly.

    Technical competence and friendly, professional manner inspire confidence

  • Knows her profession. Explained my problem. Even took the time to help me find a hand massager to buy on the internet. Selma Barron

    Was very happy with my first visit.

Christa gave me a fantastic massage which was both relaxing and rejuvenating. She is very knowledgeable and was helpful with tips (at my request) for managing my lower back pain -- she even took extra time at the end of the session to show me some stretches that should help. I appreciated her calm and encouraging manner, her professionalism and attentiveness to my problems. The space was totally comfortable and relaxing. I will be returning.
by Sanjeeve on Mar 07
Soft-spoken, insightful, and strong hands--the perfect combination. Christa was able to help me find a solution for a chronic muscle tension issue, and used a combination of modalities very skillfully in her massage. I will definitely go back.

Great massage! Wonderful release of deep piriformis muscles that have been tight for a very long time.

I have hired massage practitioners for more than 30 years professionally in the health and fitness industry, as well as personally as an elite athlete. I was impressed as soon as I walked in and commented on the room setup. I appreciated the warmth of the massage table and pressure of the blanket/sheet, the sound of the water bubbling, the level of lighting in the room and the music. The massage oil smelled wonderful, was not overpowering and not oily. Christa had the perfect amount of pressure and stretching. Hands down, no pun intended, this was the BEST massage I have ever received.

Christa is wonderful. Skllled, strong, warm, kind, funny and intuitive! Used a variety of modalities. And really listened to what I wanted and needed.

Business response:

Thank you so much for your review! We will be placing an additional sound machine outside of the massage room to make it a little less noisy. We appreciate your honest feedback!

I have not been a regular user of massage so I don't have a basis for comparison. But I felt the massage Christa gave me was quite beneficial in loosening up my muscles and increasing my circulation. The room was restful and beautiful.

Business response:

I am glad you enjoyed your time with me, and it was wonderful to meet you. I hope to see you again:)
