Krista graduated from National Holistic Institute in 2008 from San Jose, California where she specialized in Deep Tissue and Sports Massage.
After becoming a mother and experiencing firsthand the physical and emotional strain childbirth has on a body, she expanded her practice to specialize in pre and perinatal massage so that she can help women understand the importance of restoring balance in their bodies. In addition, Krista is a Certified Infant Massage Instructor, where she teaches parents how to massage their babies. She believes that that loving touch and the healing benefits of massage therapy should start at the beginning of a person's life.
Krista tailors each massage to meet the needs of her clients by incorporating multiple modalities including Trigger Point, Deep Tissue, Swedish, Myofascial Release, and cupping. Her goal is to help her clients restore balance and movement in their bodies and help women reconnect to themselves and their bodies during pregnancy and after giving birth.
Ultimately, Krista has a passion for helping women achieve balance and peace in their bodies so they can live to their fullest potential. In her free time, Krista enjoys playing volleyball, running, hiking, camping and traveling the world with her family!
