Christina graduated from Lawrence Technological University (Southfield, MI) in 2010 with a Bachelors in Psychology and minor in Philosophy. Upon completion, she wasn’t yet content with how she was applying these skills and decided to pursue her childhood dreams of learning massage.
Growing up in India, she was immersed in an environment where massage and holistic care are common facets of healthy living. Her grandmother’s repetitive stress injuries specifically drew the family to massage and acupuncture. Christina found early on that mimicking her family’s therapist and massaging her Mother and aunts not only generated relief for them but also elicited a sense of contentment within her.
She enrolled at Irene’s Myomassology Institute (Southfield, MI) in 2012, and that is where she was finally able to merge her understanding of mind and body. The question of “why people do the things they do?” and “why the body holds on to what it does?” became one and the same.
The desire to simply learn massage has become a practice of relieving clients of migraines, chronic low back pain, shoulder injuries, hip restrictions and encouraging post op recovery, injury rehabilitation, neuromuscular disease management and much more.
Christina’s preferred style is Therapeutic Bodywork. In these sessions you may receive a combination of modalities from sports massage, trigger point therapy, stretching, positional release, active resistive movement and myofascial release.
Christina has been an Associated Bodywork and Massage Professional since 2012. In her down time you might find her biking, touring the many art and music festivals around Detroit, gardening, or rock climbing.
