"I had the pleasure of engaging in and working with Kristen for an entire 10 series. My first impressions of her was that she was kind, open, welcoming, and very grounded. As we began our work, I felt extremely safe and immediately fell into a deeper healing that involved not only my physical body but also my emotional and spiritual bodies. In my physical body, I noticed how I stood and walked differently after each session. My feet felt a tremendous amount of difference and they weren't hurting anymore. My pelvis and hips opened up and I could literally feel my breathe all the way into my sacrum. One particular experience that stood out to me was when we were working on my shoulder blades. I let Kristen know that I had some emotional blockages there so she spent extra time there just holding me and it allowed for a huge emotional and physical release. The entire 10 sessions and the relational dynamics were a blissful and healing experience.
Kristen uses her knowledge AND her intuition to help guide the sessions. She's the type of practitioner who really meets her clients where they are and is able to have a conversation with them through words, intuition, and the body."

"Doing an entire ten series and three movement sessions with Kristen was my introduction to Structural Integration. At almost three years postpartum I have recurring SI ligament and neck/shoulder strains. I can’t overstate the benefits I received from this work with Kristen - emotional, physical, psychological; creating space in my body created space in my life. The work was deep and intentional, but not painful, and always a boon to my nervous system; the winter I did the ten series I did not get sick, and each flare up of my recurring conditions was soothed and mitigated greatly by the sessions, including an accelerated recovery time from the strains. The work with Kristen has helped me put my body back together again after the big adventure of childbirth and parenting (and carrying around) a small child.
Kristen’s work is strong and true, she is patient and grounded, her intuition invaluable."

"I am so happy that I found Kristen!
Being in the third trimester of my first pregnancy, my body has been going through lots of painful changes and the overall discomfort was getting to be unbearable. I was a little apprehensive about the concept of this work as I had been under the misconception that it was often painful - and more pain was not what I was looking for whether it helped long term or not.
Kristen was so accommodating and made sure to really focus on the areas that were bothering me the most. It's like she has a magical knot sensor and was able to target all of my problem areas effectively.
Even just by the end of the session my back felt more relaxed, and the tenseness in my calves that had been causing them to "charley horse" nearly every morning was gone. I was so relieved and impressed.
I would highly recommend Kristen to anyone dealing with muscular pain or discomfort. I've been made a believer in the power of this work, and I can't wait for my next session."

"Kristen came to my home to provide therapeutic relief for low back issues. My case was complicated by certain structural issues including scoliosis. Kristen not only was a focused professional in her manipulative work but also reached out to her online community for wider input on how to support my needs. Thankful for this enthusiastic genuine and determined professional in my life!"

“Kristen has the wisest hands I've ever known. What more can I say.”
"Kristen is a gifted and incredibly intuitive body worker. She had me feeling like I could take on the world after I completed my ten series and movement sessions with her. Having a background in bodywork as well as having received bodywork all over the world I can honestly say that Kristen is my go to gal for Structural Integration."
