|After years of hearing family and friends say, "you missed your calling," I moved from my home state of West Virginia to San Diego to study at Mueller College of Holistic Massage Therapies. It was here that I discovered the immense satisfaction that comes from using my gifted touch to free clients from their pain. Following graduation and passing the exam for National Certification in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork, I became licensed to practice massage in both West Virginia and the City of San Diego.|
|While living in San Diego, I worked simultaneously for the prestigious Cassidy's Massage Clinic (voted Best Massage Clinic in the city 6 years in a row) and SmartPerk, a company which provides corporate chair massage throughout the San Diego area.|
Returning to West Virginia, I opened That's the Spot! in January, 2008, operating out of rented space inside the Wood Rehab & Fitness Center on Rt. 2 in Moundsville.
Helping my clients find relief from acute and chronic pain is the focus of my practice. Drawing on my intuition as well as my training and skills in Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, and Cranio-Sacral Therapy, clients soon experience stress relief, tension release, reduction in pain, and ultimately, better health. Under the guidance of my touch, clients have been freed from years of chronic pain; posture has been straightened resulting in a measurable increase in height; and overall health improves, leading to a general improvement in your quality and enjoyment of life.
I had my first taste of natural
health and alternative therapy while taking long hikes, practicing yoga
and meditating in nature on my family horse farm in Colerain, Ohio. Before
becoming a massage therapist, I had been a riding instructor at Oglebay
Stables and was a Registered Nurse for 10 years in long-term skilled care
and pediatrics. As a 2004 graduate of Mt. Nittany Institute of Natural
Health, I am able to offer services in many types of massage therapy,
including Swedish, connective tissue, neuromuscular, sports, elderly and
pregnancy massage. Iíve gained knowledge in the amazing gifts of
hydrotherapy, aromatherapy, Tai Chi, yoga, reflexology, Shiatsu and
Polarity, having shared my experiences through a column for the Robert
Morris University newspaper. I continue to grow as a holistic healer by
adding education in stone massage and aromatherapy, as well as Ayurvedic,
Thai yoga, trigger point and chair massage.

Kristen is not accepting new clients at this time.
wanted to let you know that Kristin fixed my back problem. I have been
having severe back problems with pain shooting down my left leg... I
haven't been able to sleep or lay down flat comfortably for a long time,
as well as any activity or work was extremely painful. When I left after
my massage I felt at least 90 % better and the next day the pains were
gone. Please pass this on to Kristen and thanks to both of you for all you
tell her I can't wait for my next appointment."
It would have taken much longer to overcome my knee injury had I not used Thatís the Spot! as part of my therapy. Medication alone wasnít cutting it. Ė Bill
