Massage Therapy Instructor

Christina studied Massage Therapy at Greenville Technical college in Greer South Carolina. Since receiving her Texas massage license in 2005, she has owned and operated her own practice within chiropractic settings, private studios, and most currently her own mobile massage practice. She also enjoyed the opportunity to work for Massage Envy from 2014-2019 and was honored to represent the Dallas Forth Worth area as “Therapist of the Year” at the franchise National Convention in 2016.

Christina has a deep seated passion for helping others better understand their own bodies through the lenses of movement, body work and nutrition. There is nothing she loves more than being in a room full of people collaborating to come to a greater understanding of just about any topic!

Over the years this drive to learn, understand and elevate others through education has lead her to study myofascial release, orthopedic massage, many forms of therapeutic stretching, prenatal and postnatal massage, manual lymphatic drainage, and aromatherapy in depth. She is currently working to complete her Zero Balancing certification which she intends to use in her practice with a trauma informed approach. Christina has been a Licensed Massage instructor for the State of Texas since 2019. She is currently a senior instructor at Sterling Massage Academy. She obtained her Continuing Education Provider license for Texas as well as NCBTMB Board certification in 2022. No matter where this journey of massage and body work takes her, Christina approaches with gratitude and humility because every day brings a new lesson and every lesson brings opportunity for growth.
