She is a 2015 graduate of Moncton’s Eastern College 2200 hour Massage Therapy program. During her studies, Krista exceeded the required 440 hours of hands on treatment time, and graduated as one of the top in her class.
As a regulated Health Care Professional, Krista’s focus is to provide each client with an extensive and systematic assessment, formulate an accurate clinical impression and develop the most comprehensive treatment plan based on each client’s needs and goals to relieve and / or prevent physical dysfunction.
Krista is an active person and understands very well the frustrations of injury, sickness, decreased energy levels and the role stress can play with the mind and body. Her goal is to understand each client’s specific needs to help them relieve stress, accelerate recovery, and maximize their potential by helping them stay happy, healthy and moving. She treats the whole person by seeking the root of the cause, not just the symptoms.
