Hi! My name is Cristi Page and I am a licensed massage therapist (CT Lic #6807). I studied at CT Center for Massage Therapy in Newington, CT and have been practicing since October of 2011. I opened my practice in 2013 and have loved every minute of it.
It may come as a surprise to many, but before I enrolled in massage school I had never actually had one. Ever. I had just gone through a huge life changing situation and needed to try something different. It was THE best desicion of my life.
While in school I learned the anatomy and muscles. I learned that helping people didn't mean that I had to sacrifice something I wanted. It meant that I could now help people on another level- pain management and relaxation (all while easing their mind and body from every day stresses)! I have learned so much about life, people and myself in the whole process of school and certification. I learned things I never thought possible.
It makes me feel so amazing when I walk away from a session and can feel the relief I have been able to give to someone. Knowing that I can do something that makes others feel better makes my career in Massage Therapy that much rewarding!
Essential Being Massage vows to help and aid in deep relaxation techniques and pain management. I assess client goals and provide a treatment plan to accomplish those goals, whether it's decreasing pain, increasing activities of daily living, relaxation, or increasing range of motion and flexibility. I like to accommodate the needs of my clients and can easily customize a session. Increasing the overall quality of my clients’ lives is a great success to me and I take pride in the work I do.
My clients will tell you that I am "the best massage in town"!
