REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

Friendly, convenient, thorough, and excellent massage.

Had a massage on my due date as baby was being stubborn. Kristen was amazing!! I felt so relaxed during and after the massage and she was very knowledgeable on acupressure points and balancing the body for labor! Would highly recommend her and actually already did to a friend who is expecting twins!

You did a great job knowing when a muscle was tight and massaging it out/adjusting so that I was more comfortable. Thank you for taking the pain away (even the pains I didn't know were there or that I'd gotten used to). I'd encourage anyone out there who hasn't had a massage before make an appointment with Kristen. It's some of the best self-care you can do for yourself.

Yes, I was texting a friend before Kristen had left.

I am so glad I had a pregnancy massage with Kristen. Not only did I receive an amazing massage but I also was extremely relaxed which is just what I needed. Kristen is very professional and is amazing at what she does. If your thinking about getting a pregnancy massage.. just do it.. worth every penny!

This was my first at home massage and I was a little nervous. Kristen made me feel comfortable and she was amazing. She did a full body and worked the spots that needed it giving a lot of relief and I feel so much better.
