About

Kristina Alvarez, BS, CHES, LMT, MTI

Welcome to Bliss Health & Wellness

Kristina has a natural intuitive nature and has developed a deep understanding of healing modalities during her journey into the healing arts.  She attended Texas Healing Arts Institute, earning her massage license in January 2003.  Kristina obtained her Massage Therapy Instructors License in the summer of 2010, and her Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES) designation in April 2016.

Kristina graduated from The University of Texas at Austin with a BS in Kinesiology and Health Education, majoring in Health Promotion and minoring in Community Health and Wellness.

Kristina prides herself on her ability to care and listen to the needs of others.  Every massage is tailored to the individual needs of each client by using multiple modalities to address your current areas of concern, giving you a customized session to obtain the best possible results.  Her primary focus is to reduce chronic pain, facilitate injury recovery, and improve body function.

Her massage style originates from training in a modality called Flo that uses a ginger tea fomentation and incorporates Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, myofascial release, neuromuscular therapy and energy balance. This method promotes fluid movements of the muscles and joints, reducing healing time for injured areas, and balancing chakras. This individualized experience  balances and opens the body which creates space so the body can heal itself from within.

Wellness coaching consists of a customized personal plan to develop lifestyle changes that assists you in reaching your goals while enhancing your well being. Coaching can assist with a variety of issues, including stress management, managing chronic conditions, and following new nutritional, exercise, or weight-loss plans.

Our ultimate goal is to assist you in building your path to wellness.

Follow your bliss…find your health.
