After experiencing first hand the incredible benefits of massage therapy following a car accident, Kristyn decided to return to school to become a massage therapist herself.
Kristyn brings over ten years of experience to her practice, with a BA in psychology from the University of Western Ontario and a massage therapy diploma from Sutherland Chan. Over the years she has worked in a variety of settings including Body Blitz, Toronto Bodyworks, and Ohana Wellness Clinic.
With a long time love for the Roncesvalles community, Kristyn provides a welcoming and safe space for you to feel at ease.
She uses an intuitive touch that is both therapeutic and relaxing. With a repertoire of techniques in her toolbox, her treatments are tailored specifically to the needs and goals of each client to make sure they receive the approach that will work best for them.
Kristyn is a member in good standing with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO) and a proud member of the Registered Massage Therapists Association of Ontario (RMTAO).
This is the most popular massage that people look for when they ask for a "regular massage." Oil is used to allow the therapist to perform a range of techniques to relieve pain, enhance circulation, release tight muscles and improve range of motion - all the while keeping a slow and relaxing pace. The depth of pressure used can vary according to you and your body.
Looking for deep tissue massage? You can find that here too.
Relieve the discomforts of pregnancy with a relaxing and restorative treatment for expecting moms. This massage treatment will help to improve circulation, relieve lower back pain, alleviate pressure on joints and reduce swelling in legs. This treatment is typically performed in a side lying position for the comfort and safety of you and your baby.
Post-partum treatments are also important for a parent. After baby is born, massage can be an effective way to soothe your mental and physical stresses.
Neuromuscular Integration and Structural Alignment is a deep tissue technique that works directly on the fascial layers of the body. NISA uses a shallow angle of entry with a small amount of oil. The technique involves a "spreading" of the fascial layers in order to stretch and soften, reduce restrictions and adhesions, help restore function and postural alignment to the body.
NISA is a technique that I frequently use in most of my treatments.
TMJ Pain and Dysfunction
This focused treatment of the face and jaw works to alleviate the pain and tension caused by teeth grinding, jaw clenching, and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction.
While a lot of relief can be found with massaging the external jaw, we can also work intra-orally (using gloves, of course).
In the heart of Roncesvalles Village, my studio is located within Boomerang Pilates inside the Roncesvalles United Church.
Accessing the studio space requires walking up a short flight of stairs to the second floor.
Please note, the church is locked at all times.
Please text me (416-816-1142) five to ten minutes before your treatment time and I will come pick you up from the north parking lot door, at the top of the ramp of the RUC Community Hub.
Paid parking is available on Roncesvalles, or park for free on the adjacent side streets.

Do you treat kids?
Yes, I do! Children carry heavy backpacks to school and participate in a range of activities that can be hard on their bodies, just like adults. Since children can sometimes be anxious or fidgety with longer treatments, I offer 30 minute sessions for children under age 15 at a rate of $75 plus HST. Please get in touch with me directly by text, phone or email to book a shorter treatment.
What forms of payment do you accept?
Preferred methods are e-transfer or debit. If you wish to pay in cash, please have exact change, or the difference will be applied as a credit for your next visit. I also accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express.
Do you do direct billing?
I don't at this time, but you will be provided with a receipt via email, which you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
What is your cancellation policy?
If you need to cancel your appointment, please do so with a MINIMUM of 24 hours. If you cancel with less than 24 hours and the slot doesn't rebook, or you miss your appointment, I will have to charge the full fee. Thank you for respecting my time!
Should I leave a tip?
Though it’s a lovely gesture, it is absolutely not necessary! If you enjoyed your treatment, the best way to tip is with a referral or leaving a positive Google review.
