    "Christine is the best! Her massage is relaxing and at the same time good for you like yoga. I felt great afterwards."

    Dan T. From Thumbtack.com
  • "Christine is superb at working over all my muscles. She can specialize certain areas, for example, like my calves. I have suffered ruptures in the past and she can smooth and relax my calf muscles to remove the tension. She also takes the extra effort to teach you methods to maintain muscle integrity in between her sessions. Her massages leave me in a wonderful state of both physical and mental health, I highly recommend her."

  • "I came to Christine some time ago with some major injuries that I have to live with. I believe that if you don't exercise you're injuries get worse so in regards to that I do workout. I have found that Massage Therapy works for me and I have used Massage Therapy for a very long time. Many Massage Therapists don't listen to you and your body and sometimes cause more issues. I have found that Christine is just the opposite she listens to my needs and pays close attention to me. Christine is a very professional Therapist, super friendly and I would definitely recommend her.

  • "I recently had a serious fall where I experienced a neck injury. I liked Christine's approach as a massage therapist because she listened closely to my description of how the injury feels. She addressed the areas of concern with the massage. The massage was the perfect pressure. Thorough and the neck felt better by the end of the massage.
