Hi! My name is Christina Aumann. I help people let go of stress and tension with soothing sensory experiences for deep relaxation.
My own history of chronic pain and anxiety informed my desire to study and practice multiple methods of meditation, yoga, and massage over the last two decades. These have all helped increase peace and calm in my body and mind.
In late 2016, I decided to elevate the ways in which I could help others’ health and wellbeing. I attended a month-long training in Laos called Thai Massage Circus. Back in California, I went through a 500 hour program to complete my California Massage Therapist certification, which included an emphasis in Myofascial Release (MFR).
Through advanced massage trainings and practice, I have learned how to successfully help clients with a number of specific concerns, including head/neck/jaw/upper back issues, shoulder/arm/hand concerns, as well as low back/hip/leg/foot issues. In 2020, I became a certified restorative hypnotherapist, which is focused on encouraging relaxation in body and mind. In 2021, I completed a restorative yoga teacher training. I pull from various aspects of these trainings when I work with my clients and students.
Most importantly, I have learned that listening and providing unconditional positive regard can be one of the most beneficial aspects of working with others.
Last year I made an art poster amplifying the words of Audrey Lorde, “Caring for myself is not self-indulgence. It is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” To me, this message is about encouraging myself and others, especially women, people of color, LGBTQIA+, and other underrepresented people to take time and action towards their mental and physical health, aspects which can easily be diminished by our society and culture.
In service to the local community, I lead regular self-massage and meditation activities for homeless and at risk women at The Women's Room of Friends In Deed.
Let's work together! It would be my privilege to support you with an in-person bodywork session.
Please contact me to schedule a free 15 minute phone call to see if we’d be a good fit, and to coordinate your first session.
