Massage Artist / Owner / LMT
Aloha, my name is Kristen Nelson. It was initially my interest in yoga that sparked an interest in learning more about the human body, and the connection between body, mind, and spirit. My wellness career began in 2011 at The Massage Therapy Institute of Colorado in Denver. The intense, 1000 hour program focused on deep tissue, neuromuscular therapy, myofascial release and sports and orthopedic massage. Over the years, I have shaped my focused around working with chronic pain management, injury rehabilitation, as well as working with athletes. But I also love to give a relaxing Lomi Lomi or Swedish massage!
During my year in massage school, I began to notice positive changes in my body, both physically and mentally, which led to a greater alignment in all aspects of my life. It was during this time that many positive shifts began to take place. I quickly learned that massage has the power to heal on so many levels. After completing my studies at the Massage Therapy Institute of Colorado, I enrolled in continuing in education courses at The Boulder College of Massage to learn more about Sports and Orthopedic Massage.
After massage school I practiced for about a year in Colorado before moving to Hawaii. I immediately began a private practice, as well as working with physical therapists, chiropractors, and at a wellness spa. I decided to make the move to the Hawaii in 2012. I feel that the aloha spirit really resonates with me, and the beauty and magic of these islands cultivate growth and healing. My integrated technique helps clients get relief from chronic pain and recover more quickly from injury. I believe I have a talent for making Deep Tissue Massage comfortable yet still effective, putting my clients at ease. My goal is to assist you in alleviating pain and stress, promote self healing, and to help guide you into a state of deep relaxation.
