​in equilibrium. She strives for an educated client, who walks away with the knowledge of how to improve their body's health & wellness during
​their time between sessions. Her focus in treatments is Deep Tissue Massage, Injury Rehabilitation, Trigger Point Therapy, Passive Stretch Therapy, and Full Body Relaxation. She is also experienced in Hot Stones, is certified in John F. Barnes MyoFascial Release Therapy, and has recently gained the title of
​RAPID Specialist
after completing the​ three courses in Neurofascial Reset
techniques and treatment.  

Kristen is a graduate from McKay Career College, finishing her program in July 2013. She is 27 years old, from Nipawin. Her passion for her career choice roots from her desire to help people feel, function, and perform better.  Kristen’s skills as a therapist range widely through many types of treatment, from Deep Tissue Swedish Massage, Certified Myofascial Release, Graston Technique, Trigger Point Therapy, and Stretch Therapy. She’s not afraid of a challenge and is always willing to go above and beyond the expectation to see that her clients receive the best treatment possible. Kristen recently has found a strong passion in Myofascial Release Therapy after receiving her Level 1 Certification in the John F. Barnes Training course in April of 2016.
