Therapeutic Massage Treatments

Our therapeutic massage treatments are designed to alleviate pain, tension, stress and alignment issues. They are excellent for those suffering from physical injuries, chronic stress and tension, active individuals or those who sit at a computer all day.

At Momentum we want to make your session memorable. Kristine endeavors to provide an experience that sets Momentum apart from expensive spas and clinical massage therapy offices. 

Kristine does not offer Registered Massage Therapy, she offers Therapeutic Bodywork and Manual Therapy. Therapeutic Bodywork/Manual Therapy is an integrated approach  to massage that looks at the whole body. Kristine is trained in multiple modalities to customize your session perfectly and does not offer a cookie cutter approach, your session is designed on the day of your treatment-just for you.  Using a 'wholilstic' approach and a variety of modalities, tools and techniques, Kristine facilitates a sense of ease, mobility and lightness in her clients bodies.  Her work is deep, therapeutic and very relaxing.

If it is your first visit please arrive 5-10 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time to fill out a health history form so Kristine can design your treatment better. Forms will be followed by a complimentary intake with Kristine and after picking your custom aromatherapy blend your session will begin. At Momentum your intake and assessment is not factored into your massage time so a 60 minute massage is actually 60 minutes of hands-on time. If it is your first session with us you will also receive 15 minutes free of charge added to the first regular priced massage. For this reason Kristine recommends you factor in an extra 30 minutes to your time with us before you have to go elsewhere. After your massage you will be given your New Client Welcome Package and are encouraged to relax, take your time and have a cup of tea in our warm, cozy waiting lounge.

We book most modalities as 60, 75, 90 or 120 minute sessions. 60 Minute sessions are best for relaxation or one target area. If you have multiple issues you need addressed Kristine recommends you book 75 minutes or longer.

Deep Flow Bodywork

Momentum's Signature treatment, Deep Flow is an intuitive, alignment-based approach to Bodywork and Massage.  It awakens natural intuition around touch and grows the understanding of the body's integrity in order to promote and balance structural/physical, emotional and spiritual alignment.


Deep Flow sessions interweave  Myofascial Release techniques, stretching, Restorative Yoga and Body-Mind Integration  principles into a unique full body treatment tailored to the client's individual needs as it progresses.  Unlike standard Massage Therapy where generally only one area of the body is worked on, Deep Flow Bodywork  addresses the body in its entirety so the client experiences an integrated 'wholistic' treatment.  The combination of  Bodywork, Alignment and Mindfulness  creates a unique, customized treatment for each individual.

Deep Relaxation Massage

 Our most popular treatment

Unwind with the perfect combination of Deep Tissue and Relaxation Techniques. At Momentum we don't believe that Deep Tissue Massage has to hurt to be effective!


Enjoy a longer session that utilizes Deep Tissue techniques such as Myofascial Release, Neuromuscular Technique, Trigger Point Therapy and Myofascial Cupping (if desired).  


Areas of discomfort and tension will be targeted followed by a full body relaxation massage with extra attention to the feet, hands and scalp to integrate the work and leave you feeling refreshed. 


Restorative Bodywork

Restorative Bodywork combines Manual Therapy with Restorative Yoga as a means to balance and align the body, mind, breath and soul. The combination of the two therapies helps regulate the client's nervous system and introduces a vast array of new healing and well-being possibilities for the client. This therapy addresses imbalances of both the physical and emotional bodies.



Clients will led through a series of customized Restorative Yoga postures while the practitioner gently applies myofascial release techniques to assist the client in releasing deep holding patterns in the body that can feed chronic pain or stress related ailments. These postures will prepare the client to be more receptive to soft tissue work, so that a greater depth of healing can be achieved.

Zen Shiatsu

Zen Shiatsu is a mindful approach to bodywork based on the holistic system of East Asian Medicine. It focuses on the organ-meridian networks of the body, their physical, energetic and spiritual aspects. It calms an overactive sympathetic nervous system, improves circulation, relieves stiff muscles and relieves stress. 

Shiatsu is performed on a floor mat with the recipient fully clothed. No lotions or oils are used.


Kristine blends her Shiatsu training with her knowledge of Restorative Bodywork and yoga techniques to create a specific routine to further assist clients in bringing their body, mind and spirit back to equilibrium. The work is deep, therapeutic and relaxing




Spa Add-Ons

Kristine offers Spa Add-Ons such as scrubs, herbal foot soaks and warm stones that you may add onto most therapeutic massage sessions to increase relaxation and well being.
