Ground and Center Therapeutic Massage
Ground your body, Center your soul


One of my goals as a licensed massage therapist and small business owner is to grow and maintain a dedicated, caring, and knowledgeable relationship with my patients.  I am honored to provide you with some insightful comments from current clients.

“I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had a bilateral mastectomy and complete axillary lymph node dissection. Kristen listened to my journey and made a commitment to care for me as a whole person. She has “healing hands” and I can feel the energy radiating from her. She is intuitive and thorough. I appreciate her willingness to help me with my special needs post-treatment for breast cancer.” – Lynne Allen

“Kristen is focused on meeting my needs to achieve my goals for the massage session. She asks questions about my health and also inquires about specific conditions I am experiencing. She plays close attention to the problem areas and adjusts the massage as needed. Following the session, I feel looser, relaxed, and I sleep better at night.” – JB

“I suffer from arthritic pain in my hips and neck. My goal is reduce pain and to regain flexibility in these areas. Since Kristen was new to the massage therapy industry, I had some reservations about booking a massage with her. The qualities Kristen possesses put me at ease. She listens to my issues and tailors the massage to meet my changing issues. The pain and stiffness in my joints has been significantly reduced. She is friendly and dedicated to improving her clients' quality of life.” – SZ

“I met Kristen when she was a student at Trocaire College’s Massage Therapy Clinic. I specifically requested her for my sessions. She successfully addressed my issues with lowerback pain and circulation problems I have in my legs and feet. She is easy to communicate with, uses adequate pressure, and responds to my requests. I was happy to follow her to her clinic and I will continue to be a long-term patient of Ground and Center Therapeutic Massage.” – Bill Joyce

“Kristen is friendly and easy to talk to about medical situations and at a personal level. She is flexible and goes above and beyond to assure my comfort.” – SV
