I use an energy healing modality called medical Qi Gong
which uses both hands off and hands on touch to unblock
stagnation in the body and restore free flow of Qi and Blood.
I also employ the practice of Shiatsu which is a form of
acupressure which works on the Chinese meridians to unlock
the blocked pathways in the body. A typical session is
between 60-75 minutes, where I’ll also use sound and essential
oil therapy where needed.
Body & Mind - Massage & Acupuncture
I blend eastern and western approaches in every session
whether we’re doing massage, cupping, or acupuncture. I'll
combine techniques for a completely integrative approach, to
bring balance to your body and mind, always taking into
account your whole being and never reducing you to just signs
& symptoms. Acupuncture and massage can help with pain in the
body, digestive issues, insomnia, sinus congestions,
allergies, and headaches. However, these modalities are best
used as a preventative measure to keep the body and mind
healthy with regular treatments throughout the year.
Mind & Spirit - Spiritual Counseling
I use spiritual counseling as a way to help you reconnect
with your Higher Self and your true purpose in life. Family
dramas, relationship and marriage issues, gender identity
and sexuality issues, are some of the areas I am passionate
about helping my clients resolve. Through shadow work, inner
child work, and integration of all aspects of yourself I want
to bring you back to your true self.
This is a 4-module course on how to do cupping therapy at
home on a loved one or a friend. This course utilizes the
Korean cupping method, which is a form of cupping that
uses a suction gun instead of fire to create suction.
Cupping therapy is used to treat pain, and tension in the
muscles, as well as assist in the treatment of common cold,
so buckle up for a FUN learning experience.
A Journey Through The Body
This is a collaborative course with Amanda Winkler
Movement, where we’ll guide you on a journey through the
body from an in-depth perspective you may have not seen
before. This online course is for newer yoga teachers,
aerialists, and other movement educators craving more
knowledge through embodiment practice as well as from an
intellectual perspective over a course of several months.
Taodharma TV is a channel dedicated to yoga, movement
and meditation. My vision is for busy individuals to get
a different type of movement and mindfulness practice
through weekly classes of a shorter format, 10-15
minutes in length. These classes can be done anywhere and
are designed to get you to connect to all aspects of
yourself through challenging yet accessible sequencing.
I want you to connect to your body through experiencing
sensations that arise, not escape your reality. Let the
Start a new relationship with yourself now.
During this call we will discuss your needs, fears, past therapies,
and your short and long term goals. Sometimes people cry and release
during our call. By the end of the call I will identify if we’re the
right fit to work together based on our interaction.
"Kristina is the real deal. I dreamed about finding an
acupuncturist like her. When I came to see her, I was
deeply tense and blocked. I could feel this very real
tension all over my body. Piece by piece, we unlocked
this tension. Kristina was always receptive to what I
told her about what was going on with body and mind, which
is something I had difficulty doing with any kind of physician
before, and would adjust and work accordingly. She also has
remarkable intuition about what is going on with you, likely
before you even say a word. She treats your whole being,
not just physical or emotional, but both of these and more. By
working with Kristina, I felt less tension in my body and open
to more possibilities. My time with her helped me get unstuck
and onto the next phase of my life. I was able to release a
lot of emotional pain, body issues, gender issues, negative
familial energy, and toxicity. I got a raise at work, which I
negotiated myself, I figured out a bit more about what I want
to do in life, and I am also moving into my own apartment,
which had been a goal of mine for years. Kristina always
checked in with me, even when I wasn’t in the office, and
monitored my progress. She also seemed to learn a lot from
me too, so it's very much a two-way street. She recommended
a lot of great literature and audio recordings that were
helpful on my journey. Bottom line: I really couldn’t
recommend her enough. If you are lucky enough to work with
her, you will surely feel and be better for it."
"I’ve been working with Kristina for over 10 years now,
and her skills as a practitioner continue to amaze me.
She’s addressed my physical pain with thai massage, tui
na, and deep tissue work informed by the traditions of
Chinese medicine. She’s also addressed my underlying
structural weaknesses and posture issues with stretches and
exercises and coached me into changing my own bad habits in
a way my yoga practice alone could not. While I’ll continue
to need body work due to my work life as a theater technician,
I am now more knowledgeable and accountable about taking care
of myself. Whenever I’ve recommended Kristina to a friend or
coworker in pain, they’ve been astonished at how perceptive,
efficient, and informative she is. Her video consultations
have been immensely helpful during quarantine, and if you
ever have a chance to take her yoga or aerial classes, they
are not to be missed!"
"I did a mentorship with this goddess & all I can say is
everything I wanted manifested, came to fruition within
the 3 months of working with her. I’m a better me today
with her guidance. I’ll forever love and appreciate you
Queen! I definitely cry every time I reread my journal
entries from a year ago to today. You have helped me and
several of my close friends and we’re all doing better
today because of your healing hands and words. Here are
some things I’ve learned in the process: Do the homework
& pay attention to you & your thoughts during the process.
You have all the answers you truly need. I loved everything
about this program, it’s taught me that I’m my biggest
enemy, & everything is happening for a reason & acceptance
is key. I’ve learned I love & care for too many people & do
too much for them & not enough for myself.”
“Now I know why I had to do this work with you...I had to
heal myself before I serve others."
Sound Healer & Preservational Architect
“Through this process I've learned that I am far more of
the positives than the negatives that I didn't allow myself
to believe prior to this process. No matter how much I wanted
to grow, I loved holding onto the war against myself so that
I always had an excuse or reason to be less than great. With
so much more love in my life given to me from the cultivated
and trusting relationships I'd built over the past 6 months,
I am believing those positive affirmations from others. In
turn, I am emanating this from my own self instead of relying
on others through daily practice of meditation, journaling,
and exercise. I trust my mind and body to go back to the
source of the self instead of struggling and striving.”

"I have been seeing Kristina for acupuncture for several
years now. She has helped me through multiple health issues
and is an amazing healer. I have seen improvements in my
body from our ongoing sessions. Kristina is very
knowledgeable and compassionate. I trust her with my medical
history and highly recommend her."
As spiritual beings living in this human form, we must address the state
of our spiritual health. Without this element we are diminished to just
signs and symptoms, which is how the western medical model addresses
health. You’re here for something different, something SPIRITUAL.
As an empath, I’ve taken on other people’s emotions and suffering to my
own detriment. This is where COMPASSION comes in, so you can still feel
for people without taking on their emotions. Become compassionate and your
world will change.
As a holistic practitioner I’m all about the BALANCE. By addressing your
physical, mental, and spiritual health, we are addressing your whole being
for your balanced and best self.
Being MAGNETIC is an energetic state. The state where people are drawn to
you and they don’t know why. By developing yourself through meditation
and energy work, you will have a healthier energy field, healthier cells,
and a state of mind which people will naturally gravitate toward.
