What Clients Are Saying

Chrissy is one of the most compassionate and nurturing health care professionals I've ever worked with. That is why as a massage client first, I trusted her to help me in my nutrition journey, as well.

Her excitement and passion for her work, as well as the in-depth knowledge about the science behind the Freedom From Pain Protocol that she shares, all builds trust and understanding of why her method is effective.

After a few weeks on the Protocol, I saw positive changes in my body including reduced pain, digestive improvements, and a boosted mood. Now that I have all this information, I have the motivation to follow the Protocol to better take care of my body."
