Kristin Tichawa, Licensed Massage Therapist #4305
I became a massage therapist because I love to help people. The notion that massage is “just an indulgence” is antiquated. Massage is increasingly recognized as an alternative medical treatment. There are over 1,000 studies and published reports that offer scientific evidence on the beneficial health effects of massage therapy. In 2009, I had an excruciating pain in my foot. I thought it was broken, as I could hardly walk. I went to the doctor and after x-rays, he stated it was plantar fasciitis and that I would have it for the rest of my life. He told me to take ibuprofen and gave me muscle relaxers as a back-up. Dissatisfied, I began to look into massage and energy healing, started getting regular care, and the foot pain went away and has never returned.
I graduated with honors from Virginia College in Huntsville, AL in June of 2015. I completed my National Certification with the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork in November 2016. In August of 2017 I completed my Reiki Master Certification in Usui Ryoho Reiki. In December of 2017, I graduated from Siena Heights University with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Massage Therapy.
I am privileged to go to work every day and assist my clients in achieving their health and wellness goals. Massage and Energy Work have had such a positive impact on my life, I am grateful to be able to share it with others!
