Committed to understanding the nature of body/mind therapies Christen brings to all her clients a compassionate and nurturing touch, combining modalities in a therapeutic massage to facilitate healing.
Each modality Christen incorporates promotes deep relaxation, facilitates pain relief, and encourages a connection with the body’s natural healing abilities and to raise self-awareness and wellness. An integral aspect of any bodywork session is developing an awareness of how our physical form reflects our life in a unique mind/body relationship.
Bodywork is the art of healing that transforms and serves as the vital link between body, mind, and spirit. It is Christen’s hope to inform you through that connection, and point the way for you to use your own innate knowledge of healing to inspire your life with fulfillment and contentment.
