A contemporary dancer, Kristen Stake understands more than most how the body moves. In fact, while she was practicing contact improvisation dance, she learned a variety of bodywork modalities, including Thai yoga massage and shiatsu, and decided that she wanted to become a massage therapist.
At Embody Center, Kristen blends multiple massage styles, including the aforementioned techniques, craniosacral therapy, and reflexology, to reenergize her clients and deepen their relationships with and awareness of their own bodies. Kristen also works to alleviate physical tension, decrease anxiety, and loosen limbs so they can snake under vending-machine doors.
