Love Kristen's massages!  Customized for what I need most.  With metastatic breast cancer, I look forward to my massage every other week and believe it improves my mental and physical health.

I see Kristen on a weekly basis for a massage for my fibromyalgia.  I can't say enough about how much she has helped me and has gotten me back to doing normal things that we all take for granted.  Her massages have relieved so much discomfort I was experiencing for years.  Fibro never goes away but can be controlled with the right treatment.  Kristen's masssages are wonderful and relaxing as well as therapeutic.  Thank you Kristen you have helped me so much and I highly recommend you to my friends... you are the best..
