She is also an Upledger-trained cranial sacral therapist and is active in Knoxville’s CST community. Kristie’s massage style is gentle, meditative and patient, leaving space for the client’s body to possibly recalibrate, remap, release, and receive. Kristie is drawn to supporting clients in times of transition or emotional charge who are seeking a sense of restoration and deep rest.
During her relaxation massages, Kristie works with the intention of holding space for you to come home to yourself. Combining techniques from myofascial release and cranial-sacral therapies with jostling, rocking and assisted movement, her gentle and meditative style supports clients looking to rest and restore.
Reiki is a simple and profound practice that can be communicated through through light touch and open, grounded presence. A Reiki session or a massage with Reiki integrated session with Kristie will start with a conversation about your intentions, which may be as simple as wanting to relax or to experience something new. First, Kristie sets the intention for Reiki to serve the highest good of the client and practitioner. Within the integrated session a combination of techniques from massage and Reiki are used to support flow and balance. With the stand alone Reiki session, Kristie will work with hands on (lightly) or off the body, weaving traditional Reiki placements with intuitive touch. Kristie is a second-degree practitioner committed to self-healing and meditation, and she has studied under various teachers including Elayne Crystal and Frans Stiene. Everyone experiences energy differently, and Kristie is happy to hold space for you to inhabit your own experience.

Katie has been a licensed massage therapist for almost a decade. Her massage style is highly intuitive with a strong emphasis on compassion.

She also uses a variety of modalities that support the effectiveness of her work such as Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy, Energy Balancing, Gua Sha and Cupping.
Having a deep innerstanding about the effect emotional trauma has on the physical body, Katie is also trained in trauma-informed bodywork. These special 90 minute sessions vary in style depending on the client, but typically open with a discussion about what’s going on emotionally and tracking how that manifests in the body. Katie builds a map of your emotional stress triggers, physical trauma, sleep patterns, eating habits, etc. then applies that to the feedback your body provides during the massage. She systematically sets about working to release old and new trauma patterns using very specific energy work and focused bodywork. If you are ready to address deeper levels of chronic pain, trauma-informed bodywork might be right for you.
