Kristen's foundation for her intuitive, creative bodywork comes from her practice of meditation and pure love of the work. Helping her clients feel more comfortable in their bodies again. When Kristen puts her hands on a client, her energetic connection is palpable. Her specialty and passion is working with peoople in an individualized way to melt away the uncomfotable armor that they hold in the forms of restricted breathing, tense muscles, and defensive posturing. Kristen is also educated in pregnancy massage and has worked with women from the first trimester of pregnancy throught the post-partum period. She loves to support women through the intense physiological, emotional, and lifestyle changes that occur throughout this amazing and challenging experience. Kristen's bodywork style weaves together deep tissue and Esalen techniques, and dynamic movement with Swedish therapeutic massage to create an experience that is nurturing, rejuvenating, and effective. In recent years Kristen has incorporated Energetic Bodywork into her work. This has been transformaional to her massage therapy practice, as her connections to her clients are on a much deeper level, where true healing can occur. No matter whom Kristen is working with, be it a marathon runner, a stressed-out student, or a third-trimester mother, someone living with a chronic disease she finds that touch is a powerful medium for healing. This is especially true whe combined with a deep energetic connection and excellent verbal communication between therapist and client.
