Christy Lee is a PA Licensed Massage Therapist, with 15 years of experience. Immediately after receiving a BFA in Dance from Temple University in 1996, she completed a 600-hour, Massage Certification Program in Delaware. Christy is trained in Craniosacral, Deep Tissue, Myofascial, Sports, Swedish and Trigger Point therapies. She practices an integrated massage therapy treatment figuring out what combination each body needs at that particular time.
During her dance and massage career, Christy had to take a 5-year respite from both massage and dance due to an autoimmune disease which had been misdiagnosed for 9 years. The proper diagnosis, Celiac disease, finally came after giving birth to her daughter. The diagnosis, and the long path to recovery gave Christy a new-found and learned perspective into her massage practice, nutrition and holistic healing. She now has both a clinical understanding, as well as a knowledgeable empathy that is actively implemented in her care of clients.
Christy practices an understanding that the “road to recovery” is comprised of more than one avenue of treatment. She believes that while every injury is different and requires specialized attention and rehabilitation, it is the continual, preventative practices that are the hallmark of sustained health and well-being. As an LMT, Christy wishes to establish engaged and informed relationships with other like-minded wellness practitioners. She is truly excited to be joining Kara’s team at Ease Healing.
