 to putting focus on her health and fitness.

It started with small changes, and those small changes led to even bigger ones. After much training, she made it to the start line for Calgary’s Ironman 70.3. She finished that race and felt amazing. From that point on, she knew that things just weren’t going to be the same.

Her interest in health and fitness began to grow which led her to achieving an AFLCA Certification in Group Exercise Instruction with a designation in cycle. Following this she completed her 3000-hour Advanced Clinical Massage Therapy Program through Makami College.

Massage Therapy has allowed her to appreciate the body and its potential in a completely different way. She is fascinated with how massage can help restore full range of motion, increase fluid joint movement, decrease tightness in muscles, and re-energize the body.

Cristina utilizes several techniques in her massage practice employing an effective holistic approach including deep tissue, cupping, myofascial release, and trigger point treatment.

Cristina: “My passion for massage, along with my own journey in health and fitness has led me with the desire to focus on massage for sport and rehabilitation. I have been able to work with people of varying skill levels, such as avid gym goers, weekend warriors, dedicated triathletes, and mixed martial artists. However, through massage, I enjoy helping anyone with the desire to improve their overall wellness, athlete or not. My goal is to help others elevate their health in mind, body, and movement.”
