Hi, my name is Kristin. I am a licensed massage therapist. I graduated from The Academy of Massage and Bodyworks in Pottstown, PA. I am a newly licensed therapist, and attuned to Reiki 1 and Reiki 2. My interest is in helping people to heal through touch. I have an interest in energy therapy, but am more experienced in massage. What I enjoy most about massage is connecting with people and providing a caring and nurturing touch. I do Swedish massage and Deep Tissue massage, if requested. I look forward to learning different modalities. I plan on learning lomi lomi, aromatherapy, and hot stone massage. Another interest I have is Shirodhara. I have a background as an elder caregiver, for over 20 years. As a caregiver, I gained a lot of skill in listening to others and providing excellent customer service. I had to be a very reliable person, respect confidentiality, and work with people who were ill, sometimes dying, sometimes disabled, and usually not at their best. I found that through caring and compassion, I could make difficult times easier for my clients. One of the greatest rewards doing this work was seeing my clients smile and hearing them laugh. Knowing I helped someone have some happiness always made my day. What I wished to communicate to my clients, through my actions and words, was that they were cared for, that I cared. My goal was to give them the best care I could and help them to live their lives to the fullest. I believe that this attitude and desire to care for others, makes me a great therapist. Each therapist has her (or his) own unique background and strengths, and my earlier work has given me what I have today. It has shaped who I am today, which is why I chose to share it. I strive to work on any area that needs attention, and I always ask each person what their needs are. I will listen and provide you with the pressure you want. I ask that you please communicate with me during your massage any requests that would improve the experience. And I promise to be quiet, except for inquiring about your comfort. This is your Massage, so please let me know if there is anything I need to do! Thank you for reading my profile, and I look forward to serving you.
