We'll have Table Thai again in June and September in North Austin & Into to Thai again in July & October in Cedar Park.
Registration up asap for those classes.

There is a 3 month payment plan to make classes more affordable. ❤

I had so much fun teaching table thai last month and I can’t wait to see some of you again in our Intro class!
Working to soften and break up an old injury
Texts from my clients get me so fired up! This is why I do what i do.

I always suggest 3-4 appointments, 2-4 hours long, close together before sliding into maintenance mode (once a month) to get the best results. I want to see you feel better, quicker - that is why I switched to thai mat bodywork. ♥️

We are constantly working on ‘s old shoulder injury from his FedEx days
Whew, I am beat!! I just spent the last two days with Robert Gardner Wellness & Danielle Omo, Blend Bodywork & Massage, teaching a 12 hour Table thai class! Our students were quick to pick the work up & were so much fun to teach. I am looking forward to the upcoming Intro to Thai class I will be teaching next month, March 28, 29, 30! Teaching has brought a whole new energy and fire within me! ♥️
Massage so good, you’ll lose track of where you are!
11 days until our upcoming Table Thai class in N. Austin!! We are limiting registration to 10 spots. We want to keep classes small to give students the attention they deserve. We'll have Table Thai again in June and September. Registration up asap for those classes.

There is a 3 month payment plan to make classes more affordable. ❤
Intro to Thai Massage and Table Thai are both listed for February and March. Robert will be there as a TA and filming, along with Danielle TAing, and I am leading both classes as the instructor.

If you're travelling into town for class and want a session with Robert Gardner Wellness, Danielle Omo, Blend Bodywork & Massage, or myself, please schedule well in advance around class.
I love being fully . There are not many locally or across the US that are 100% mat based plus have the ability to weekly with their mentor. I am 3 years into my Thai practice (6years into being a therapist) and I am loving my work! Come try a session

I’ve heard some western therapist express their distaste for seated compressions. I think visually they are displeased.

I understand that it’s hard to understand why we do seated compressions if you’re just looking at the work.

The biggest broadest Instrument some of us have is our rear end 🤷🏻‍♀️ i lay down a blanket on top of my client, giving us a professional barrier & to make sure my bones don’t sharply compress into them and to keep them feeling safe. I will do a seated compression to allow an area to soften before going in with a standing compression. This is the best way to warm a large area quickly to continue moving through the session.

Half the time my clients say they have to look up to see what tool I’m using, as they get lost in the sensation 💜


Lol, I love this chick ♥️ great tips for ”getting thise fuqrs”


Danielle Omo & I Are co teaching the final two classes of the year that are coming up! We have one table thai and one intro to mat left in 2022.

Get yourself registered to lock in this year’s price!

We offer 3 month payment plans!! ♥️


I saw this original meme made by another therapist. The bottom square originally said “I don’t want to.”

The thing is, once a therapist is asked to give more pressure than they’re comfortably able to give, it’s the time where we as the therapist should recommend another style of work that can accommodate the request, not another therapist to possibly injure trying to make this client happy.

I’ve began to realize since becoming fully mat based is that the clients DO know what they want, they just don’t know what it’s called.

I have heard “this is what I always thought deep tissue would feel like”

My ideal clients are in chronic pain. I stumbled into this work from my own chronic pain so I get it.

We ask for more pressure because we need it, we don’t want an additional injury, bruising, or an elbow pushed through our body. We don’t want to be hurt. We want to FEEL deeper pressure to access & unlock our deep aches and pains, and the table isn’t where I found it.
I found the relief I was looking for on the mat through the use of knees, shins, feet, AND the arms, hands, & elbows.


Kristen Lumsden Private Practice Talk at Lauterstein Conway Massage School

Massage By Kristen gave a talk about being in private practice at The Lauterstein-Conway Massage School yesterday. This is the first of many clips we'll share in coming weeks.


Kristen Lumsden Private Practice Talk at Lauterstein Conway Massage School

Super exciting to watch this video back today! Each time I teach a class or speak in front of groups, I am getting more and more comfortable and confident with my public speaking!
Coming to talk at Lauterstein-Conway was such an honor for me. I am a 2010 grad & am grateful to have had the opportunity to speak and demo for a soon to be graduating class!! I wish I had been shown different styles of work when I was in school but am happy & feel blessed I met Robert Gardner when I did, early in my career.
Thai massage (Next Level Pain Relief style) is my passion. I cant wait to work with students and clients interested in this work in the future

♥️ ♥️ I saw this original meme & I HATED IT. The bottom square said “I don’t want to.” 😮

My jobs have always been customer service oriented and so this meme KILLS ME!!! We’ll more of the therapists responses to the meme killed me

But I get it!! Table massage hurts! It hurts to give and it hurts to receive- so why is it still the THING!?

Come try Thai massage (giving and receiving!)

We have our next Intro class in Sept

I love how they turned out, so I have to show you a sneak peek of the photo shoot I did with Rebecca Brumfield last week creating “stock photos” for Thai massage therapists.

When people think massage, they always think the same thing - table, nudity, cream, & glide.
🗣Well people, massage is so much more than just that!

I challenge you to try a different style of massage ♥️ whether it be thai massage or ashi or to go the complete opposite way, trying craniosacral or lomi!! Explore! Try something new!

Explore all the different sides of massage and you may find yourself loving and craving a style of massage you have never experienced before!!

Life is short, so explore and try new things often


Calling all IT workers, dental hygienists, hair stylists, rock climbers, traditional table therapists, and any other human with arms that hurt!!!

Book yourself a 3 hour thai massage & we will get to work on relieving your nagging aches and pains today!!

I love what I can get done in a 2 hour session. 3 hour appointments are the prime choice but we can work up to that!🙃
