Integrative BodyWork provides theraputic massage services to the local equestrian community. IBW is owned and operated by Kristen Smith, LMP. As an army wife, former collegiate athlete, and actively competing equestrian, Kristen has experienced the value regular massage can bring to anyone’s life. Whether as treatment for a specific ailment or simply to ease the aches and pains of stress, massage can improve your day!
Kristen Smith was introduced to the power of massage while playing NCAA soccer on her college’s varsity team. By treating injuries, enhancing training and easing stress, massage improved multiple facets of her college experience. That impression was reinforced during two years spent as a working student, groom and assistant on the AA horse show circuit. Two winter seasons spent caring for international Grand Prix showjumping horses highlighted how massage was utilized to improve the athletic form of both horse and rider, ease the wear of competitioin and travel, and improve the performance of top athletes.
After undergraduate work in Marketing at Wesleyan College in Macon GA and Pacific Lutheran University in Parkland WA, Kristen completed her massage certification at Clover Park Technical College’s Massage Studies Program.
She is a current member of several professional organzations, including the American Massage Therapy Association, and believes strongly that there is always something new to learn. She is an IACEFT certified personal trainer, specializing in the unique fitness needs of equestrians and also enjoys working with prenatal clients and new moms.
We would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best service in the industry.
