Massage Therapy, Electro-Lymphatic Therapy

Kristen MinkeI offer Visceral, Swedish, and LomiLomi Massage as well as Electro Lymphatic Therapy.

My work best serves people who need an integrated approach that empowers them to understand their body and take control of what has been limiting them.

My special gift is a knowledge and skill base both broad and deep that allows me to paint a picture for clients, so they understand how to get better. This kind of partnership can be very motivating for people. Since my early dance training I have been fascinated with how the body works. Throughout my life I’ve struggled with allergies, headaches, GI issues, ADHD, and Dyslexia. Frequently, standard medical treatments didn’t help or made things worse. So, I went in search of a better way to heal or at least turn challenges to my advantage. And so I embarked on a path to a satisfying career in alternative health at Bastyr University. While there I studied: nutrition, exercise science, physical medicine, aromatherapy, and massage. My life continues to be a quest to learn more skills to assist people in their journey to optimal health.

In my free time I like to experiment with new Paleo and Vegan recipes to sneak even more vegetables into my day. For activity I learn new dance forms like Hula and Tribal Style, and I experiment with body weight and posture training that can be done anywhere. I also fold origami to create mobiles and I embellish clothing items with embroidery and beading. I like designing with Zen Doodles, henna or Scandinavian folk painting. To chill out I watch independent and foreign films or read young adult fiction by John Connely and others, or anything on brain science. I’m currently reviewing my French language skills and learning Spanish.
