Hi, I’m Kristin. I was born in Waikiki, Hawaii, and raised in Washington State. Massage has always been a way of life in Hawaii, and being raised Hawaiian Style, it was always something that the children did for the elders. It was while working as an assistant to a chiropractor/Hawaiian Kahuna that I realized the gift that I hold in my hands. He was the one who told me, “I have the knack.”
I finished Massage school in 2002, and went on the road for a year selling concessions with a show. It was upon returning home to the Tacoma area that I seriously started practicing massage and there has been no turning back. I worked for 3 years in a Physical Therapy clinic perfecting my injury/rehabilitation massage. I am Nationally Certified and a member of the ABMP (Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals). I am trained in many different modalities and pull them out of my “toolbox” as needed.
Structural Relief Therapy
Deep Tissue Hawaiian Lomi Lomi
Manual Lymphatic Drainage
It is my philosophy in life to do the best at what it is you haven chosen to do. I am both honored and excited to be a part of the Dr. Dot team.
I look forward to working with you when you are in the Tacoma/Seattle area.
