After working out of a chiropractic office for years, licensed massage therapist Kristen Hallowell LMT decided to branch out on her own. Today, she continues to earn new fans who marvel at her proficiency in six types of massage modalities—from the long, flowing strokes of Swedish massage to the specialized techniques of prenatal massage. Each therapy session is peppered with techniques designed to combat pain and restore the body’s structural alignment. One of these methods—the raindrop technique—couples essential oils with a soothing pattern of strokes to realign the spine and release toxins from the body’s hidden cache of safety-deposit boxes.
