Where do i begin? I actually found Christina on Yelp when I was looking for prenatal massage during my second pregnancy. And as luck would have it, all the good reviews pointed me in the right direction! (Thanks, Yelpers.) Christina is a good listener; she has a warm presence & an intuitive touch. She was able to gauge the perfect amount of pressure in accordance with my needs. She also practiced craniosacral work on me & I must admit, I felt wonderful afterwards. I ended up seeing her regularly throughout my pregnancy, & she helped keep me feeling as-good-as-could-be. She also did the placenta encapsulation for us once the baby was born, which I know was one of the things that contributed to my postpartum well-being. (She even made a pretty piece of placental artwork!) Almost six months postpartum, I am still seeing Christina regularly & she helps soothe my aches & pains as my body comes back to life. My husband even started seeing her too! We always look forward to the weekend we have a massage scheduled. It's a luxury but we figure it's less expensive than going to the doctor! We are grateful for Christina & her healing touch.
Christina is a phenomenal healer and body worker. Her sensitivity, warmth, and extensive knowledge of both hands-on and energetic work offers a balanced and custom-tailored session. I left my session wit Christina feeling relaxed, energized, and happy! She has wisdom in her hands~

We love Christina!
Christina is one of the most gifted massage practitioners I've come across. My wife and I have each had two massages with her so far and we agree... she is amazing! We are planning to go back in a few weeks again.
I can only say good things about her- she is sweet, intuitive, and calm. She really knows how to find what is going on in your body and make you feel great, and that's all I really need to say, right?
I'd recommend Christina's massage services to anyone!

I just received a wonderful pre-natal massage from Christina. It was heavenly! Her touch and style were just what I needed and she was completely open to whatever I asked for (more/less pressure, different parts of the body being focused on, etc.). Christina is very calm, sweet and has great energy. I only wish I could have had a longer massage!

I've received 2 massages from Christina in the last few months. She is very present, attuned, nurturing, strong, and intuitive, and I will certainly return for more work. I am also a massage therapist, and as a practitioner I can highly recommend Christina for her massage and craniosacral therapy.
Christina is a gifted healer. She can work deeply to effect change in chronic muscular tension holding patterns with massage. She can also use cranial sacral therapy for more subtle but profoundly deep unwinding of stress or trauma from the body. She is intuitive, perceptive, and skilled at listening to the body and such a loving presence. As a midwife and massage therapist myself I highly recommend her.
I used Christina's post-partum placenta encapsulation services, which made such a huge difference. She offers a choice of raw or Chinese Medicine preparation, and makes the capsules and tinctures according to what you want. The capsules made a huge difference for my energy and moods, so they were a saving grace in the healing process. We have enough of a tincture and essence to last a lifetime, too! Lastly, the art projects she makes with the placenta are very sweet memories.
She was timely, professional, and sweet. I could tell she imbued her medicine with all of her grounding energy.
