Her massage technique provides a 3 dimensional integrative approach with techniques in Phenomenal Touch™, neuromuscular therapy, compassionate deep tissue, passive stretching, Swedish, reflexology and myofascial release, and essential oils.

It has been heard on more than one occasion by her clients that her massages are the best they have ever received... throughout the world!

"As an avid skier, mountain biker, and search and rescue volunteer, I am constantly pushing my body to the limits. Christina’s massages have helped me maintain a healthy body and mind. She understands the athlete and knows how to customize her approach to address specific needs. Every session begins with a conversation about “what’s going on with you today.” Throughout our sessions Christina is in tune with my body and checks in verbally, fine-tuning her approach as the session progresses. She has a phenomenal “touch” coupled with strong, healing energy. I believe I am a connoisseur of massage, and would highly recommend Christina to anyone searching for a highly effective and skilled massage therapist who masterfully blends a broad array of techniques with customer needs."
