Kirsten Hammond, Registered Massage Therapist
“Kirsten explained how my muscles worked and how everything was connected and how to take better care of my body.” – Elke
Kirsten Hammond is a registered massage therapist who has been practicing massage therapy since 1998, and is now happy to be operating her own clinic.
Since 1998, she has successfully contributed to a multidisciplinary clinic environment, as well as worked independently to share holistic healing.
Kirsten has continued to develop her skills and knowledge in pre and post natal massage, infant massage, core stabilization exercises and osteopathic techniques for the spine and pelvis. Some of the specific techniques that she finds effective are: deep tissue massage, myofascial release, swedish relaxation and trigger point therapy.
As always, a variety of techniques are used to achieve the specific goals of each client, whether it be to recover from an injury, assist in promoting a healthy lifestyle, or help with the physical goal of completing a marathon or birthing a baby!
When Kirsten is not practicing in the tranquil setting of the Evolutions Massage Therapy clinic, she is joyfully participating in her chaotic family life of raising three children whilst wondering when she can fit in her next run!

”Kirsten has an infectious bubbly and happy nature, and I’m always glad to see her. She is very professional, taking my injuries and complaints seriously as well as assessing my needs each visit. She is very passionate about her work and attends workshops to learn and specialize. When I thought about what I look for in a great therapist, I like someone who listens to my needs, assesses my condition and evaluates my progress. I appreciate someone who is professional yet kind and considerate. I prefer a therapist who is adaptable to each client and their unique preferences. Kirsten has all of these qualities and more. She is simply excellent!” – Melanie
