My name is Christine and I’ve been practicing bodywork since 2000.
I moved from Paris to the Bay Area ten years ago, having promised myself to work with my hands, and to be truthful to myself. At the Acupressure Institute in Berkeley, I learned Acupressure, Shiatsu, Swedish, Ashiatsu, and reflexology. But I was most inspired by the active, joyful Tui-na technique taught by Brian O’Dea.
I came to massage from a background in the performing arts. From the arts, I learned how to first learn, and then “unlearn” a technique, in order to go beyond it.
I tend to be direct in my communication style, and comfortable connecting with people. I take in a lot of information during each session and in every interaction with my clients; everything I learn from my clients inspires me to improve, deepen, and enrich what I bring to my massages.
Besides my massage practice, I am also a gardener and a mother.
