Planting seeds of wellness!

Welcome! Thank you for your interest in massage therapy.  Research is increasingly showing the countless health benefits of this soothing, and non-invasive treatment. In my fifteen years of practice, I have successfully treated many clients with chronic pain.  I  also take referrals from doctors to treat acute injuries, and have seen favorable results.

Welcome! Thank you for your interest in massage therapy.  Research is increasingly showing the countless health benefits of this soothing, and non-invasive treatment. In my fifteen years of practice, I have successfully treated many clients with chronic pain.  I  also take referrals from doctors to treat acute injuries, and have seen favorable results.   

I attended The Massage Academy of the Poconos in 2005 and graduated with honors from Allied Medical and Technical Institute in the Massage Therapy program the same year. Currently, I am a lifelong student of the Science of Massage Institute, a research and teaching institute led by Dr Ross Turchaninov, dedicated to elevating the massage profession and making it a valued part of integrated medicine.  

In addition to being licensed, I am also Board Certified in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork, and also certified in Pediatric Massage. I have experience working with special need populations including but not limited to autism, cerebral palsy, sensory integration disorders, etc. 

I use evidence based practices to guide my work but I also intuitively integrate various techniques in my massage sessions to bring about the most beneficial and therapeutic results. If there is a challenging case presented, I have the benefit of consulting with Dr Ross or any of my other medical massage colleagues for assistance if I am unable to find the answers I am looking for in the large SOMI database. 

In other words, each session is catered to the individual needs of the client and will vary from person to person and also from session to session.  Some of the techniques would include but are not limited to: myofascial release, deep tissue, medical massage, energy therapy, NMT, accupressure, and aromatherapy.  I offer clinical massage therapy appointments focusing on pain, functional outcomes, and stress management.

Kristin is very good at making my six year old comfortable and at ease. She’s very knowledgeable and an excellent healer. Highly recommend.

A wonderful massage! Spent the first few minutes going over pain spots and possible causes. She also gave me some stretches to do at home on my own. Kristin’s technique is gentle but extremely effective - already feeling improvement and booked my next appointment!

It was overall a great experience. The ambiance was very calming and peaceful. It’s apparent that Kristin is knowledgeable and the massage really helped alleviate my neck and shoulder pain. Kristin is also very professional, and I appreciate how quickly she responds to voicemail and text messages. I will be a repeat customer. 😊
