She is a fervent believer in the lifelong study and practice of deepening her understanding of wellness.

“For most of my adult life, I have been in some form of pain or discomfort. After working with Christine for 18 months, I am not in chronic pain or discomfort, I have lost 30 pounds, and I feel more in control of my own health and happiness (because I have a better understanding of what makes me healthy and what makes me sick). It’s hard to communicate the overwhelmingly positive impact that Christine has had on me and my wife (and our family, by extension). I am really grateful for Christine ❤️” ~H.O.
