Therapeutic Body Work

In 2011, I made the decision to go back to school. I wanted to do something physical. As well, as being able to help others with their health. I had always had a soft spot for massaging friends shoulders and scalp. I thought, why not become trained to do something I enjoy. During school, I became aware within the 2nd week of the talent I didn't realize I had. Teachers raved, that its not often for students to develop a sense of emotional safety net with clients.

In 2011, I made the decision to go back to school. I wanted to do something physical. As well, as being able to help others with their health. I had always had a soft spot for massaging friends shoulders and scalp. I thought, why not become trained to do something I enjoy. During school, I became aware within the 2nd week of the talent I didn't realize I had. Teachers raved, that its not often for students to develop a sense of emotional safety net with clients. It was a rarity I was proud to continue to develop. After graduating at the top of my class in November of 2011, I went on to become certified thru the state of California. I am Certified Massage Therapist, certified by the California Massage Therapy Council (CAMTC).  I am also a member of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA). I have grown committed to supporting people of all walks of life, to eliminate Acute and Chronic pain. Clients range from adults, geriatric, and children, so long as they have a parent/guardian present. I encourage clients to use Massage as part of their self-care routines. Just as we put miles on our vehicles, which require oil changes and other mechanical services, as needed every few thousand miles. We too, put miles on our bodies, both physically and mentally, thru our daily routines. Massage to me, is no longer a pampering treat. But an essential part of our health and wellness. You can expect me to always be on my toes, as I manipulate your muscles, to find imbalances. To decrease tightness and pain, increase circulation. Which in turn increases your range of motion, improves sleep, and many other amazing benefits. Along my journey, I have and always will continue to expand my knowledge and techniques. As it is of great value to me, to see it bring pain relief to each of my clients. I look forward to providing my clients with the best massage therapy I can provide.

Been seeing Christina for years! I had emergency back surgery 3wks ago and she helped me achieve a great deal of post-op pain relief, flexibility and lymphatic drainage. Will be back next week for another session.

My first time getting a prenatal massage and Christina did a wonderful job explaining to me what she will be doing, as well as her skills as a masseuse are amazing.
