Life is better with massage therapy!

Kristen stumbled upon massage therapy accidentally while relocating here to North Carolina to pursue an education in diagnostic sonography. Her interest in massage shifted her intentions, resulting in a two year journey to earn an Associate of Science Degree in Therapeutic Massage from Forsyth Technical Community College. She remains tightly woven with FTCC since graduating and even taught for a couple years in their massage program’s evening curriculum.

Kristen stumbled upon massage therapy accidentally while relocating here to North Carolina to pursue an education in diagnostic sonography. Her interest in massage shifted her intentions, resulting in a two year journey to earn an Associate of Science Degree in Therapeutic Massage from Forsyth Technical Community College. She remains tightly woven with FTCC since graduating and even taught for a couple years in their massage program’s evening curriculum.

 

Kristen’s therapy sessions are customized for each of her client’s individual needs and outcomes. Many of her loyal clients are seen for pain management, as part of a rehabilitation plan, or to help ease symptoms of certain medical diagnoses. She blends her Swedish and Deep Tissue techniques to give a relaxed and therapeutic experience. Hot towels and aromatherapy are other enhancements she enjoys providing for those wanting an added element to her massage. Kristen is also certified as a Nurturing the Mother® Pregnancy Massage Therapist by Claire Marie Miller Seminars, one the nation’s leaders in massage therapy. Her friendly nature and genuine desire to help others resonates through her bodywork. She strongly believes in educating her clients, so that they have a better understanding of how their body works with massage therapy. 

 

On her days off, you will most likely find Kristen in her perennial garden or creating an art project with her young daughter in hand. Besides being a wife and mom, Kristen is an adorer of animals and outdoor admirer. Although she misses her family and the beautiful New England autumns, North Carolina is home and she is content with the inadvertent path she’s traveling.
