Chris took the time that my body needed to release the pain in my shoulder. She wasn't concerned about how long it would take and patiently explained the process to me. What was really important to me was to have the time to fully experience the release both physically and mentally. I'm looking forward to my next appointment to continue my healing journey!
I LOVE going to see Chris. The treatment is relaxing and she is always able to find just the right 'spots' to work on to release the tension and to free up the tight/stiff muscles in order for me to have better mobility again. If you're expecting an all-over massage, this will be different than you think. Chris does myofascial release which is not the all-over kneeding type of massage but rather pinpoints the tight muscles or pressure points that are inhibiting proper movement. I have really been helped and I even got my husband to go and now he swears by it too. Now I just go when I need a 'tune-up'. I have referred several others who also were able to get relief with their issues. I recommend trying it, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by how you feel.
I believe Chris's strength is not only focusing on where one feels any soreness, but through her knowledge she works on other areas which may be contributing to the issue. In addition she ensures understanding of what she is doing, show diagrams of the impacted area and makes recommendations on what can be done by the individual afterwards. Attention to detail is her strength.

About me

Massage/bodywork & energy work "found" me. After spending 9 years working in daycare, I was ready for something new. I did informational interviews and found myself at St. Croix Center For The Healing Arts signing up for massage school. By 2014, I had saved enough to try my first class of John Barnes Myofascial Release. I have since taken many more classes, participate in study groups and in short, I found my preferred form of bodywork. I am currently an "Advanced" Level MFR therapist, which only means I've taken a lot of classes! In MFR we have a saying that goes something like this: approach each session with the eyes of a beginner. That allows us to look past expectations and really see what the client's body is telling us.

My personal story is given briefly on my website, but suffice it to say that I've been through some serious injuries and MFR (that's short for Myofascial Release) has been wonderful for my own healing process on all levels: Physical, Mental & Emotional.

My philosophy is to offer hope to help people heal themselves allowing them to experience relief from low back/hip/leg pain as well as upper body issues like frozen shoulders and neck/migraine pain.

Another branch of Time To Relax that gives me a great deal of joy is working with horses using MFR. Often behavioral issues with a horse can be helped with MFR, and as an added bonus, they generally love to receive this work! It can, of course help with soft tissue injuries, decreasing of pain, and better mobility which leads to better performance. Pain is one of the biggest reasons for behavioral issues in a horse. I work in collaboration with veterinarians and my work is not a substitute for their care.

A brief list of my training: WI Licensed Massage Therapist. Additional training in JF Barnes Myofasical Release: MFR 1, Unwinding, MFR 2, Myofascial Mobilization, Fascial Pelvis, Cervical Thoracic, Advanced Unwinding, Skills Enhancement, Women's Health, Rebounding, some classes more than once.

Equine training: Mark Barnes Equine Myofasical Release 1, 2 and Skills Seminar. Plus, I've taken Hunt Seat riding lessons for several years & sometimes I'm not sure if the trainer is giving me the lesson or the horse is - most of the time it's both! :-)

I have been a patient of Chris for 6 years. Last week I hurt my back and it hurt to breathe. After 15 min Chris performed a miracle and I could breathe again without pain. She worked on me for 90 min and two days later I am still pain free. Thank you for resolving my pain without medication.
