Kirsten has been practicing massage therapy since 2013. Previously she was a Contemporary Dance Artist with a background in teaching, creating and performing Contemporary Dance. While working towards an MFA in Contemporary Dance Performance and Creation she learned about the Mitzvah Technique, a movement. technique which helps to release tension throughout the fascial systems. She also learned to process life in a somatic way and has a deep respect for the stories the body holds.
After moving from Contemporary Dance into massage therapy she kept her interest in somatic explorations and fascial systems, learning techniques from Structural Integration and incorporating this into massage practice. She strives to find what is driving chronic pain or injury through assessment and treatment of fascial systems in the body.
When not working as an RMT, Kirsten teaches at the Vancouver College of Massage Therapy and supports her home learning son.
I strive to find what is driving chronic pain or injury through assessment and treatment of fascial systems in the body.
I enjoy accompanying clients to find greater ease of movement and discover the sources of pain. I also use Cranial Sacral Therapy and integrate Swedish Massage into treatments to calm the nervous system and create well rounded treatments that are tailored to your diverse needs.
