A 2005 graduate of the Brian Utting School of Massage, Kristi has been in private practice for 12 years in Bellevue, WA focusing on injury treatment and chronic stress relief.
With over 1000 in licensing hours including Anatomy, Kinesiology, Pathology, Physiology and 300 hours spent hands on the school’s student clinic Kristi has a firm knowledge of how human and equine bodies work and how massage therapy can help heal them.
Kristi holds additional certifications in Large Animal Massage, Crania Sacral Therapy and Lymphatic Drainage techniques to give me many options for treating humans and horses. The addition of her Avant L30-Z cold laser broadens her ability to treat humans and animals.
Her lifelong passion for horses started at the age of 6 when she took her first lesson. 13 years in 4-H provided a great foundation for riding both English and Western and safely handling all horses. She has competed with and worked in A rated Hunter/Jumper barns in the Seattle area and ridden in clinics with Greg Best, Geoff Teal and Nancy Free. As a teen Kristi and her twin Kathi trained and showed when they could with Bob Woodington and Dina Happy. Kristi feels fortunate to have ridden in one of Dina’s last clnics. Currently, Her passion for Thoroughbreds has led to developing them off the race track for new sport horse careers.
