Krista Van Bosch, LMT
Krista has been a licensed massage therapist, practicing on and off, since 2016 and is passionate about helping her clients feel relaxed and refreshed.
Her massage therapy journey started when she was involved in a car accident at the age of 15 that left her sore and with limited range of motion. After she was referred to a massage therapist by her chiropractor, she was intrigued by the power of healthing through touch.
Fast forward to years later after she graduated, Krista found herself working for the same chiropractor who introduced her to massage. As a mother of four, she eventually decided to open a daycare to have more time with her children. Now that the kids are old enough, she decided it was time to go back to the healing touch of massage and is now a full time massage therapist.
Krista’s massages are sure to leave you relaxed. Her therapeutic style and deep pressure works to fix any problem area. She’s excited to work with her clients to help relieve any pain or stress.
