Kristin’s specialty is a therapeutic, deep tissue, full-body massage tailored to your specific needs, using a variety of techniques from Swedish to myofascial with shiatsu elements & more. Continuing Ed. courses in medical massage have given her the ability to provide focused TMJ work and to include areas that are often overlooked, such as scalenes, SCM, pectoralis muscles & the abdomen. Kristin studied postural corrective techniques and is certified in pre & post natal massage. She also gained 3 valuable years of oncology massage experience working at NYU’s Perlmutter Cancer Center and understands protocols for survivors & folks in recovery.
A 1999 graduate of The Swedish Institute, Kristin is also certified in Rising Star, an energetic healing system similar to Reiki, that channels energy through the chakras. The goal is to hold space for you to open to your own healing guidance. It is suggested you receive 3 sessions spaced 3 weeks apart to complete the cycle. This can be included w/ any massage.
Many of Kristin’s clients have discovered that regular massage (even once monthly) can be a wonderful aid to relax the mind and encourage balance in the body. Kristin’s years of 5-Star Spa experience from Glenmere Mansion in Chester, New York to Ila Only Spa and The Spa at The Mandarin Oriental in NYC, have been incorporated into her sessions prompting many guests to comment on her “magic hands.” She is delighted to return to MPHC.
Kristin is available Wednesday from 2:00 pm – 8:00 pm,
and Thursday from 12:00 pm – 7:00 pm.
Her specialties include Esalen (slowform of Swedish) massage, Deep Tissue, Medical, Aromatherapy and Reflexology. She has studied shiatsu, reiki, lymphatic drainage, pregnancy massage and sports medicine.

Hello, I’m Kevin, hopefully, your next massage therapist. Nice to meet you!
I learned about medical massage because I needed it myself. For example, I had a severe ankle injury and was told by a doctor I may never walk again. While studying massage at the NY College of Health Professions, I learned how to apply techniques successfully to myself and I fully regained function. I also cured my own migraines by combining body dynamics and correct ergonomics. These successes inspired and built my confidence to help others with similar issues.
I have a strong background in medical massage. The first 5 years of my massage career involved working with Physical Therapists. During the last three years, I worked closely with Dr. Katz, M.D., a pain management specialist, who supervised me in doing physical therapy with his patients, to help them regain range of motion and rebuild strength after surgeries. My knowledge of kinesiology allowed me to recommend recovery exercises for each patient.
I also have a spa background, and I am currently enrolled in the acupuncture program at NY College. I enjoy blending my knowledge of meridian lines and acupressure with spa techniques to relieve ailments and enhance healing and relaxation. I tailor each session to what you want and need on a given day, so that it is unique to you, and I enjoy answering any questions you might have about your body.
