My name is Christina "C. J. " Wade and my philosophy is to create a space for you to relax and refocus on your needs. Everything on your schedule commands energy, even the things you love to do. That energy must be replenished in order for you to be your best self. So, when you enter your session, you are the focus because you matter.

I entered therapeutic massage because I noticed a lot of people in performing arts and public service careers were sacrificing themselves in the name of entertaining and helping others. Later in life, when I experienced chronic back pain, I realized I was one of those exhaustive-giving people too and my chiropractor suggested massage therapy in combination with my visits. It worked and I haven't had chronic back pain since. I learned that therapeutic massage wasn't just for a spa day, it was a positive component to my overall health. It reminded me that in the midst of all that I do, I mattered too. Throughout my therapeutic massage program, I enjoyed helping people recognize their natural setting was relaxed, not tensed. After all, that is what my massage therapists did for me.

For more information about me, below is my official therapeutic massage bio.

With over 25 years of performing arts experience, C. J. Wade transitioned into her therapeutic massage career in 2018 to aid the creative and public service community. She thrives in customizing each session to meet her client's needs. She specializes in Swedish, Deep Tissue, Neuromuscular, Sports, Prenatal, and Pediatric modalities. She also incorporates stretching techniques to assist with  range of motion and pain relief. 

C.J. believes that time for oneself is not a luxury; it is a necessity. Her practice, You Matter Massage & Wellness, operates under the motto "you deserve a healthy you" as she encourages others to create time to refocus and replenish themselves on a regular basis. Since her licensure in 2018, she has collaborated with doctors and clients to address medical issues such as sciatica, fibromyalgia, anxiety, injury rehabilitation, and more.

In addition to her degrees in Communication Management and Education from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, C. J. is also is a licensed massage therapist in the state of Alabama and a certified member of Associated Bodywork and Massage Practitioners.

C. J. is an great therapist. She is very knowledgeable and thorough. My experience was very relaxing and calming which is just what I needed. She explained why I was dealing with certain issues. This will help me to avoid having those problems. I really appreciated her sharing that info with me. I look forward to my next massage with her.

I liked that the tech explained each step of the deep massage process. She let me know my area of weakness and which area needed more stretching! I plan to schedule another visit!
