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. 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 ... more

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.

A very good experience overall. Krista is clearly well versed in the different modalities of massage therapy and is attentive to her client's needs. I wish I had another 15 minutes or so to get the last few knots worked on! Her schedule is very accommodating as well. Will definitely be returning for another appointment in the near future.

I had a problem with a very bad stiff neck for the 4 days. By pure luck I fell into an appointment a friend couldn't make. Krista knew right away how to begin treating me. I walked out of there feeling amazing. Prior to that I had very little movement. I felt so much better that I had to keep reminding myself to take it easy. Even though I felt better those muscles needed to rest and recover. By day two I have full range of motion. I feel very lucky to have a place that provides the knowledge and skill to evaluate and help my situation immediately. The space is warm and inviting and Krista is friendly and caring, a true professional. Everything you would look for from massage therapy. I know I am in good hands. The downside is that its far for me to travel but I think she's worth it...

Krista did an excellent to job of making me feel comfortable and welcomed. Krista catered my experience to my stated needs and did not give me the basic "routine" I have had with other therapist. I felt many positive effects in the days that followed.
