Christine DiPilla, LMT is a Therapeutic BodyWorker, Usui Reiki Master, Shiatsu Practitioner, intuitive healer, empath, and holistic living advocate. From a very young age, she has felt a deep connection to the diverse energies that course through our bodies and the unseen forces that influence our emotional well-being — not only in herself, but in others.
Christine has had a lifelong desire to help people feel better using her hands. A former Emergency Medical Technician and nursing student, Christine became disheartened by the Western medical model early in her career as she watched several family members’ health decline through senseless medicating, multiple surgeries, and untreated spiraling emotional distress. She left the medical field and through temp work landed an entry-level position at a pharmaceutical marketing and online learning company.
Christine grew with the company for many years earning several promotions, but each left her feeling more disassociated with her truest self and further than she had ever been from her dream of helping people feel better naturally. With a desire to find balance in her home and work life — as well as her soul’s purpose — she walked away from the corporate world and began pursuing a path where she could facilitate healing the whole body, mind, heart, and spirit.
Christine is licensed massage therapist (#MSG10414), an insured member of the American Massage Therapy Association, and a 2006 graduate of Health Choices Holistic Institute in Hillsborough, NJ, where she studied Swedish Massage, Shiatsu (from the Ohashi Institute in NYC), Neuromuscular Therapy, Polarity Therapy, Somatic Studies, Reflexology, Deep Tissue, and On-site Chair Massage. Christine received her Reiki I, II, and Master/Teacher with Murielle Wesch and her Shamballa Multidimensional Healing Level I with LeeAnne Englert. She has also studied Unergi Method under Ute Arnold, integrating touch with the Alexander Technique, talk in the form of Gestalt Therapy, Unergi Core-Support Movement based on the Feldenkrais Technique™ with creativity and the Healing Forces of Nature.
Christine draws on her innate intuitive abilities as well as her life-long experience and training to provide a tailored treatment plan to help you achieve a deeply peaceful and healing state so your body can do what it does best — heal itself.
