Hi, my name is Kristin and I'm from Dayton, OH.
After graduating (top5) from SHI Integrated Medical Massage and Acupuncture School in April 2006, I passed the state medical boards to receive my license on my first try.
My office is in Beavercreek, but am able to travel to appointments. I have been trained in and am competent to practice all of the following: Chair Massage, CranioSacral Therapy, Deep Tissue Massage, Lymphatic Drainage, Muscle Energy Technique, Myofascial Release, Sports Massage, Swedish Massage, Therapeutic Massage, TMJ Dysfunction Therapy, and Trigger Point Therapy.
I've pretty much always been good at massage, I've been working on my family since I was little, and I've always just wanted to help people. I started out as a Psychology Major at the Ohio State University (GO BUCKS!) but decided Psychology wasn't the path for me. So, while working at an electronics store - running the music department because I LOVE music - I put myself through massage school and loved every minute of it. I had finally found my calling! Now I get to put my two passions together and have my ideal job.
In school, we had to put together a marketing plan, and mine focused on working on musicians. I used articles I found about Dr. Dot and information from her website for my project, and knew when I was done with school that I would be trying out for her team...and HERE I AM!
I am honored to be a part of her team, and I will work hard to keep making her proud of us. I have many very satisfied clients, and I'm looking forward to making you a part of that clientel.
So, if you are in need of some healing, and are in the Columbus or Dayton areas...give Dot a call, and I'll be right over!
