It is the mission of Ouroboros Therapeutic Arts to change the world one person at a time through holistic healing and health. Using a combination of massage therapy techniques and modalities, energy healing, myofascial release, holistic wellness coaching, and empowerment through education, Kristina strives to aid her clients in living pain-free lives by managing and reducing chronic pain; recover from accidents, injuries, and surgeries; and release and heal from their traumas. She believes that helping individuals heal themselves will create an effect similar to a ripple in a pond, expanding outward and healing communities.
Kristina has been a Licensed and Registered Massage Therapist in New York State since 2017. She is also a certified practitioner of the John F. Barnes’ Myofascial Release Approach®, and an Energy Healer, using both hands-on and hands-off energy healing techniques. The John F. Barnes’ Myofascial Release Approach® has become an integral part of her practice, and more she learns about this powerful modality, the more important it becomes to her personal life, the practice, and the more passionate she become about sharing it with her clients and community.
She is also a certified practitioner of Kineseology Taping, or K-Tape, and Myofascial Cupping. Both K-Tape and Myofascial Cupping are used to aid in pain management, nerve entrapment, proprioception, stabilization, decompression of tissues, postural correction, and more. Myofascial Cupping is offered free of charge during therapeutic massage sessions. K-Taping is offered as an add-on, and works well as an adjunct to therapeutic massages and Myofascial Release sessions.
The healing studio is located in her home, and as such all sessions are by appointment only; no walk-ins available.
The Quest Well Shoppe, LLC is a holistic massage therapy and coaching practice that helps adventurous souls to be at their best for wherever their journey may take them. Here, you can rest and recover from the demands of your life, gaining knowledge and resources to help you in your main quest and side quests, whatever those are for you.
We are located in the Manchester district of Richmond, Virginia. We are a holistic practice, taking into consideration who you are as a person and what you want in your life when we work together to decide your treatment plan. Life is an adventure, and no two adventurers are exactly alike; your treatment plan reflects your needs and your goals. Whether you’re a Fighter gearing up for a competition, a Healer who needs help recovering from compassion fatigue, a Ranger who wants to be in top shape for a long hiking trip later in the year, or a Bard preparing for a high-stakes performance, we can help you get to where you want to go with your body and mind intact.
Our Licensed Massage Therapists and our Quest Well Guides (coaches) are kink/poly-aware or kink/poly-friendly. We are comfortable discussing your treatment goals as they relate to the lifestyle you love so much, whether it’s increasing flexibility or endurance for play, navigating the tricky emotional terrain of boundaries and needs in your relationships, or just general life balance.
We offer group classes and one-on-one coaching for various aspects of your wellness, tailored to your needs. If you wish to learn how to give a fantastic neck or foot massage, or how to organize your various calendars, or how to prioritize your own self-care, we can give you the help you need to level up your life!
