Christina Weaver, LMT Nationally Certified & Locally Licensed Massage Therapist Advanced Certification, Pregnancy Massage Diploma, Holistic Aromatherapy. As a Licensed Massage Therapist, it is her intent to assist others along the path to health and wellness. Whether due to injury, disease or the stresses of daily living, my goal is to help facilitate healing for each individual’s “whole self”. Christina is Nationally Certified (NCTMB) as well as licensed by the states of Arizona and Washington as a Massage Therapist. She is a Professional Member of National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy.
Christina was trained in the art and science of Massage Therapy at the Brenneke School of Massage in Seattle, Washington, as well as that of true, Holistic Aromatherapy at The East West School for Herbal and Aromatic Studies.
Christina holds an advanced Certification in Prenatal Massage and has also completed additional training in other areas of women’s health including Lymphatic based Breast Massage and Holistic Spa techniques. Christina received her training as a Doula through Seattle Midwifery School and has recently completed all the requirements; becoming certified through Doulas of North America. She is also trained as a Reiki Master, though views energy work as something that should be encouraged to take place between the individual lying on the treatment table and their higher self; not the therapist and the individual.
I would rather consider myself ‘forever a student’ than a ‘master’ of anything. Even as I am confident in my skills as a therapist and have witnessed positive results in my clients time and again, I believe I can always learn more and continue to grow through useful feedback, personal study and additional, advanced training.
For massage and bodywork to be effective, we must reach the body, mind and spirit of each individual ‘Being’. It is not enough to just work on the physical body or in the same way, only strive to affect the mental body or emotions. We are whole beings and as such need to be ‘treated’ with this in mind. That is why my sessions include both skilled treatment techniques and comforting touch, as well as natural aromatics, the use of hot or cold, soft lighting and a comfortable setting, in order to provide our clients with the most beneficial experience possible.
Christina Weaver is co-author of Aromatherapy for Bodyworkers textbook with Jade Shutes. She is currently in Osteopathy college on her way to becoming a O.M.D.
