LICENSED MASSAGE THERAPIST since 2001
Thank you for your interest in my work. While I have been working as a massage therapist at the Honesdale Wellness Center for a while, I created the business of Honesdale Massage Therapy as a DBA for my company Kristina Peary, LLC with the goal of providing good quality massage therapy to more people living in our area.
I graduated from the Downeast School of Massage in Waldoboro Maine in 2001. While the size of my practice has changed over the years in response to my other responsibilities and the requirements of also becoming a License Professional Counselor, massage work has always been a part of my life. I am elated to be growing my practice again now that I am self employed as a counselor as well.
I have studied Swedish massage, deep tissue, myofascial, trigger point and neuromuscular technique as well as polyvagal nervous system interventions to improve regulation of the sympathetic nervouse system (our fight or flight or freeze responses).
I also completed specialized training to provide deep tissue and structural work for pregnancy massage, primarily by using a side-lying position on the table. This is effective in alleviating sciatic nerve pain and low back and shoulder congestion.
For the community, I offer FREE Infant Massage instruction on the 2nd Saturday of every month. Parents and any family member or caregiver is welcome to attend before and/or after the child's birth.
Along with working with the physical aspect of massage, as a Reiki student I like to address the energetic and sometimes subtle energetic or emotional holding patterns that we tend to build while going about living our lives.
I hope tyo see you soon.
