As a Registered Respiratory Therapist for 17+ years, Christina decided to nurture her passion for massage therapy, energy work and holistic healing methods. While searching for an additional path to further her skills and passion as a healer, she discovered the joy of Massage Therapy.
As a result of her training, Christina has been able to connect with her patients and clients with a better understanding of something she has instinctively known all along... our emotions, thoughts and beliefs contribute to and manifest itself in either disease or wellness.
Christina believes that modern western medicine and philosophy is effective and has its purpose and place, however, energy and bodywork is an under-utilized therapy which can help the treatment or prevention of pain or stress-related disease. She has experienced, witnessed and believes in the benefits and results.
Practice Philosophy and Mission:
Within her professional practice, she always strives to meet and exceed the needs and expectations of her patients & clients while being guided by the values of respect, compassion, cooperation and professionalism. Using her background in healthcare, her mission is to promote the benefits of bodywork for individuals living with chronic lung or other diseases or disorders, e.g. help a client with lung disease take a deeper, more effective breath, help an arthritis sufferer experience less joint pain or assist a client with overwhelming stress and anxiety relax and decompress. When Eastern and Alternative therapies are combined with traditional Western medicine and philosophies, wellness naturally evolves to a higher level.
