Krista practices massage at our West location.
Krista is a registered massage therapist and an experienced registered yoga teacher. She previously managed a physiotherapy and massage therapy clinic along with a yoga studio in Spruce Grove, which inspired her to pursue a vocation in health and wellness.
After her first yoga teacher training in 2007, Krista began to teach and practiced different styles of yoga including hatha, vinyasa, ashtanga and restorative. The calming benefits of restorative and the strengthening, detoxifying aspects of ashtanga brought the two extremes into a harmony in her mind. After several years of teaching and wanting to learn more about the nuances of the body and how to promote longevity and balance, Krista decided to study massage therapy.
She fell in love with the healing benefits of massage, the ability of massage to activate the parasympathetic (rest and restore) nervous system and the art of assessing conditions to apply specific treatments that aid the healing process. She began to bring anatomical references and self-massage into yoga classes and likewise brought the therapeutic elements of postural re-education and stretching/strengthening into massage as homecare for her clients. Her massages are a blend of therapeutic, deep tissue and relaxation techniques that will leave you feeling deeply rested and more mobile, relaxed and refreshed.
