Christa professionally learned massage in 1992 at The Healing Arts Institute under the training of the original owner and director, Dr James Mally. Her inspiration though is from her mother. Every comforting touch you receive from her, during a session, is a reflection of the touch she remembers receiving from her mother growing up. She has fond memories of squirming in church and her mother letting her lay her head in her lap while she stroked her hair, lulling her into a deep meditative state of being.
Christa has been practicing massage & bodywork since 1992 and is the prior owner of The Stress Busters’ Health & Wellness Center, in Sacramento. She has extensive background in medical massage, which includes Gil Hedley’s intensive 5 day course, with a focus on studying fascia, joint connectivity & function, and the central nervous & lymphatic systems. Her greatest love is using the grounding effects of La Stone Therapy in her sessions and practicing Breema, both of which have deepened her understanding of that nurturing touch she learned from her mother.
