Kristi A.jpg

 Hello and Welcome!

I am sure glad you found me! I am Kristi and I am a licensed massage therapist and certified yoga instructor/therapist.

I started my own journey of healing back in 2005 when i was finishing my degree in Animal Science. I was stressed, gaining weight, abusing alcohol and I just wanted to feel better.

Feeling nervous and intimidated I made the leap into my first yoga class and my physical and mental journey continues to this day.

Once I started teaching yoga I became so interested in the body that I decided to go to massage school. The education of massage school far surpassed my expectations. I not only came away with massage techniques, but I also gained knowledge in anatomy, movement, alignment, and fascia.

Although I call my sessions Thai massage your session will be built for your needs. I will use any technique I am trained in to help you feel better!

Often times this includes Thai massage, Sarga Bodywork, deep tissue (although if you are a “no pain no gain” kind of person it is best to seek out a different LMT.) If the clients is interested I will also bring in breath work, guided meditation, and asana (physical practice of yoga.)

Any technique that I feel will benefit your body and mind we will chat about. You will always get to decide what is the best fit for you.

 
 
 

MY TRAINING

I have advanced training in Thai bodywork, Sarga Bodywork, fascial therapy, and deep tissue (Note: if you have a no pain, no game philosophy I am not your gal.) I work off of a mat instead of a massage table, I enjoy working on the floor and adding movement into massage. Often times if there is a specific injury or chronic pain I will ask you to move joints to allow me to get deeper into the tissue, which I find helps with long term results.

 If a client only feels comfortable on a typical massage table I also have this available (please email me). I want my clients to be 100% comfortable in the massage and with me. 

I went to my first yoga class in 2008 while I was getting my B.S. in animal science.

  • I was certified to instruct yoga in 2012.

  • I started my massage career in 2015.
