Osteopathic manual therapy (OMT) is a unique and holistic approach to healthcare that distinguishes itself from traditional therapeutic massage, physical therapy, and chiropractic treatments.
Unlike traditional massage therapy, which primarily focuses on relaxation and alleviation of muscle tension, OMT is a more comprehensive treatment targeting the musculoskeletal system, incorporating techniques to manipulate muscles, joints, and fascia.
This all-encompassing approach aims to address not only the symptoms but also the underlying causes of pain and discomfort, thus promoting overall well-being and better long-term outcomes for patients.
I began my journey toward Manual Therapy when I became a believer through personal experience. I worked as a package handler for 16 years destroying my body, specifically my back. After two back surgeries, expensive injections, and thousands of dollars in physical therapy, nothing improved my quality of life. A friend of mine recommended I try a Manual Therapist. Within a few appointments, I noticed a difference and continued to invest in this method of healing rather than what I had tried previously.
All my life, I have been drawn to energy systems and became a certified Reiki Master in 2007. I continued my education in this field learning Native American Medicine, Kriya Yoga and Meditation, and earning Seichim Master Certification. When Manual Therapy helped me so much, I took a class to see if it was something I was any good at. My first class felt very natural, and I began to pursue the path toward practicing Manual Therapy. I wanted to help others the way I had been helped.
My methods of treatment are NOT typical relaxation techniques. I approach treatment using a combination of manual osteopathic therapies including physical manipulation, stretching, and massage techniques to increase joint mobility, relieve muscle tension, and enhance blood and nerve supply to help the body’s own healing mechanisms.

Schedule an appointment to see if Reiki can make a difference for you.
We've included a copy of our office policies for you to read before scheduling an appointment. After scheduling, you'll be asked to electronically sign the form and fill out a health history form. This ensures you understand what to expect from your treatment, and it lets Kristian know how best to help you.
Because Kristian does not bill insurance or get involved in matters of litigation, all insurance claims must be closed before treatment can take place. Thank you for understanding.
