Krista Schicker knows that every BODY is different and has different needs at different moments in time. Massage is a bridge to connect ourselves with our bodies on a deeper level.
Krista got her massage license in 2009 from the state of Wisconsin after graduating from Blue Sky School of Professional Massage and Therapeutic Bodywork. In addition to being licensed in the state of Wisconsin, Krista holds a license to practice massage at a national level. She began her practice in Wisconsin in 2009 before moving to Northern California in 2011 to practice massage full-time at a high-end retreat center.
After years of training and practicing prenatal massage, trigger point massage, Thai massage, deep tissue, aromatherapy, hot stone, and Lomi Lomi (a luxurious style of Hawaiian massage) it became clear to her that every corner of the world has always used massage as a way to recover and be kind to this body that takes us through life.
Krista Schicker’s styles of massage include Relaxation, Deep Tissue / Sports, and Prenatal massage.
