Kristin Lash, LMT
Kristin is one of WHW's Master Therapists.
Specializing in deep, therapeutic massage with an emphasis on diaphragmatic breath, Kristin believes strongly in cultivating an initial sense of relaxation to bring forth intentional and effective release. Kristin became a Master Therapist at WHW in 2018 as her full and healthy practice thrives and is a model to other practitioners.
To her sessions, she also brings an athletic awareness as an avid runner who has worked through her own related injuries.
Coupled with an advanced certification in prenatal, labor support and postpartum massage and strain-counterstrain techniques, she specializes in hip/lower body release work and has worked with a diverse range of clients from professional and elite athletes to creatives and academics.
"By touching a body, we touch every event it has experienced. For a few brief moments we hold all the client's stories in our hands. We witness someone's experience of their own flesh, through some of the most powerful means possible: the contact of our hands, the acceptance of the body without judgment, and the occasional listening ear. With these gestures we reach across the isolation of the human experience and hold another person's legend. In massage therapy, we show up and ask, in so many ways, what it is like to be another human being. In doing so, we build a bridge that may heal us both."
