Do what you love, love what you do!

"Do you like being a massage therapist?" This is a question that I have been asked countless times throughout my career. I can honestly say I give the same answer every time..."I LOVE being a massage therapist!" The human body and what it is capable of fascinates me.

"Do you like being a massage therapist?" This is a question that I have been asked countless times throughout my career. I can honestly say I give the same answer every time..."I LOVE being a massage therapist!" The human body and what it is capable of fascinates me. Although I have a deep respect for traditional medicine, I also know and have experienced the healing effects of complementary medicine. I feel grateful that my life's path led me down the road to a career in massage therapy. It is deeply fulfilling to know that my hands are capable of helping someone out of their pain and stress when traditional medicine wasn't able to do so. I'm never the bearer of bad news, my work just makes people feel better. The opportunities in the field of massage therapy can be endless, so there's never a feeling of grinding out a work day. There are so many different types of bodywork to learn and so many different populations of people to reach. I've found that even after 9 years, my career is still evolving and I am in complete control of it's destiny. What an amazing feeling that is and even more amazing to "Do what I love and love what I do!"

Owner, Licensed Massage Therapist

I have been working as a massage therapist for the past 9 years, specializing in Deep Tissue, Swedish, Pre-Natal and Myofascial Release Massage. I have treated clients ranging from the ages of 10 to 89. Most of my clients receive massage on a regular basis because it is the only form of therapy that has relieved their pain and stress, or at the very least made it more manageable. I am an avid learner and eager to share my knowledge with clients. This promotes body awareness and self-care, which empowers clients to change certain patterns and compliments their massage treatments. In 2015, I opened Ascending Hands Massage located in Pelham, NH. My vision was to create a warm and inviting spa-like retreat to produce the ultimate body and mind relaxation experience. I am pleased to provide quality therapeutic massage treatments surrounded by peace and tranquility.

Certified Myofascial Release Practitioner

After completing courses for Upper Body, Lower Body and Advanced Techniques, I became a Certified Myofascial Release Practitioner in 2012.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

Overall an amazing massage...probably one of the best massages I’ve had. Hope to get back in soon for another. She found knots and trigger points that I needed to be worked on and felt great. Overall A++++
by Cori on Mar 26
Krista's space is calming, comfortable. She was thoughtful about ensuring that she focused on where I was experiencing the most discomfort and she had just the right amount of pressure. I felt great when I left and even better the next day.

Ascending hands is a very great atmosphere, she takes proper Covid precautions and the office is very clean and sterile. Krista is very professional and easy to talk to allowing you the comfort to relax. After discussing your recent history with muscular skeletal injuries, strains or what is bothering you she knows the perfect remedy for it. My experiences both were incredible, they were both after injuries so not only did it’s improve my day to day life with less pain I was able to relax for an hour and take a deep breath. Would highly recommend to family and friends.

Skill level and technique are excellent, Krista is the ultimate professional and has a great personality. She knows how to release the pain, stress and discomfort in my neck and back better than anywhere I’ve tried. Won’t go anywhere else.
