Cristy has worked on both my husband and daughter and both have had amazing results! She was very thorough with their assessments and treatments. They each have better mobility, flexibility and reduced pain. We will continue to use Encinitas Bodyworks.

LOVE this place!
Cristy quickly assesses your personal body mechanics, then customizes her treatment to be most effective for your body’s specific needs. I’ve been getting massage therapy for many years (here and many other countries) and Cristy is by far the best, most intuitive masseuse I’ve ever experienced.
Couldn’t recommend her higher!

Incredible skill and knowledge related to my pain. Ahhh thank you Christy. You are a blessing in my life. You are truly a gift. I can not express, without tearing up, how grateful I am to have found you. Within our time together you were able to determine the many challenges my MSK system was experiencing. Thank YOU for all you do for me. I’ve honestly never had such amazing hands on work. I’m detoxing from a 7 year job that was constant stress and it’s only now that I’m experiencing the ramifications...

Thank you so much - you are the greatest. I’m on my way to recovery because of you. I was great in the morning, slept with less pain. Then, the drive this morning got me again, but I’m still better than before. I just need to take some time off from the driving and screen time as we discussed so that I can recover sooner which will get me back to work performing at 100% faster.

Your wonderful Cristy
My arm almost feels like new never the same experience at Kaiser. Let’s continue every once a week indefinitely for the whole body.
I won’t be using the Kaiser process going forward

I have had many massages; deep tissue, Swedish, etc but Cristy’s techniques go beyond those. I store a lot of tension in my neck and shoulders which in my case results in daily body aches. After she worked on my whole body I no longer felt the aches the next day and going forward. My husband has Parkinson’s and had been suffering from balance issues and after one session he went from shuffling his feet to actually walking with a better stride. He also has edema in his left leg and she was able to bring the swelling down. She is very knowledgeable and takes the time to explain what she’s doing and recommends stretches and exercises to work on.

Cristy did a phenomenal job working on my body. I recently had surgery on my torn ACL and my alignment is all out of whack because of all the over compensation. She has helped me feel a lot more balanced and the myofascial release has felt amazing. I highly recommend her if you are athletic and your body needs some love.

Cristy is amazing! I was in severe pain due to some strenuous activity and was hardly able to move. Cristy spent a lot of time understanding my pain and really did an amazing job ensuring I found relief after our session. Her strength was definitely required and I felt amazing when she was finished. I would highly recommend her!

I am blown away by how amazing my back feels and have had more energy than I’ve had in a long time. Thank you thank you thank you!

Cristy is truly gifted. She has healing hands that seem to always find what your body needs. She works on me, my husband as well as my 8 yr old who has scoliosis. We are blessed to have found her. She’s very knowledgeable really listens to you. Thank you Cristy for all you have done for us.
— Amy R.

The treatment was stunning! I loved it so much. Cliff - my husband booked it for me after moving to Encinitas from Cyprus earlier last month. Having done a lot of remedial work ourselves in the past, we always say that there are only a couple of people in the world that we trust with our bodies. Well... There are 3 now! As Cristy is definitely one of them!!! The psoas release oh my god... felt so good! And I can still feel the relief of that several days later. Also after my last workout, I’ve not felt engagement like that in my mid/upper back for a long time. It feels great! More people get to know about you and your magic 😍 Marta

Cristy is by far the best massage therapist I’ve worked with. I’m so happy I discovered her and will be a regular client. She’s very responsive to scheduling and deeply skilled at therapeutic techniques including MFR.

I was referred to Cristy at Encinitas Bodyworks by my chiropractor Dr. David Yoder who is located in the same medical complex. I was rear-ended in a car accident back in August and they were kind enough to take my case on as pro bono until my case is settled. Even though I still feel some after effects from the accident, she’s been able to reduce my pain by 95%. I can even stand up from a lying down position without any real difficulty or strain. Before, I would be in so much pain trying to sit or stand up. I have scoliosis pretty bad, and even though I would be sore at times after her treatments, which she called the “healing crisis”, I would feel so much better a day or two later. She gave me lots of stretches and home-care treatments to follow that also helped, when I did them. I can’t thank her enough for giving me such great care. She really knows what’s she’s doing and she cares about her patients feeling and moving better. 

I really can’t thank you enough for what you did for me & my back, Thank you, Thank you & Thank you!!........Ed

Cristy is a miracle worker. I went to her about a month ago after seeing her Encinitas Bodyworks sign while at another appointment in her office complex. I had so much pain and tightness in my back it hurt to walk. She takes the time to figure out where you are hurting and then she fixes it. I knew my body needed more than a massage and stumbling across Cristy and Encinitas Bodyworks must have been divine intervention because it was exactly what I needed. I can’t even begin to recommend her enough.
— Rachel S.

Amazing experience with Cristy! A great combination of a therapeutic and relaxing massage. The MFR was a unique and calming yet energizing experience! Best massage of my life! I feel relaxed and very zen. If you want to feel great go see and experience Encinitas Bodyworks!
— Danny A. (Yelp Review)

Hands down, best massage I’ve had in a long time. Cristy really takes her time to examine your needs and explains in detail how the body functions. The background music was very soothing, clean and relaxing office. Plenty of parking. Thank you Cristy, I’ll be seeing you soon.

Huge thanks to Cristy Hunter for helping me rehab with an incredible massage treatment. She gave me a combo of Thai massage, circulatory bodywork and some light MFR ... Truly amazing and reinvigorating after curating a half dozen art shows and lugging heavy SURF STORY book boxes around ... She has her own studio in Encinitas but caters to a small private clientele who love her for her healing powers ... Message her directly for more info ... You will not regret it.

Cristy is amazing! I threw my back out and she was able to get me upright after a week of being bedridden. Thank you Cristy!
— Ian M.

Most wonderful, relaxing, soothing prenatal massage I have ever had! Let’s just say this, I fell asleep and that never happens to me! The setting is very peaceful and calming and felt like it was the real deal! When I go to get a massage I want to feel special and be pampered and that I was! She listens to your concerns and targets them! She is very knowledgeable on the body and the different ways certain areas need to be targeted. The discomfort I was having in certain areas was no longer there after my massage!!I highly recommend her professional services, she has multiple types of massage to choose from depending on what your needs are! Totally worth every penny! I will be going back and recommending her to all my family and friends!
— Marissa F. (Yelp Review)

This was my first experience with MFR and it was amazing. MFR was calming and gentle yet therapeutic for my injuries (neck/shoulder). Cristy was very knowledgeable and took her time to address all my concerns and explained to me how MFR worked. It felt like a very healing therapy much more than a regular massage. I’ll definitely recommend for anyone who had injuries.
— Claudia G. (Yelp Review)

Cristy is an amazing, professional and gifted healer. She is everything you want in a massage therapist. Not only does she listen to you but she tailors her therapy specifically to suit your needs. I received a prenatal massage from Cristy and I’ve never been more relaxed and comfortable even with a big pregnant belly. You really helped this momma to be de-stress and baby loved it too! She danced in my belly during the whole massage. Cristy’s warm energy really transcends and makes for a very soothing experience. Thank you Cristy!

The consummate professional that will enhance wellness and overall body performance through her amazing skills. When I have the opportunity to bring her on full-time for my family, it will be a done deal.

Be careful, because once you have experienced her skills, all others will fall by the wayside.

Some of the best massages my husband and I have ever received. She is extremely competent, professional and caring. Cristy makes us feel very healthy and happy!
— Gayle C. (Linkedin Review)

Cristy is an excellent massage therapist. She is attentive, sensitive, personable, pleasant, and always on time. She is great at creating a relaxing environment, and she modifies her massage technique to suit your needs on that day. I highly recommend Cristy- she is truly the best!
— Emily L. (Linkedin Review)

I’ve sought out different massage and bodywork modalities to supplement fitness and wellness, including Hellerwork, Rolfing, deep tissue and sports massage. I can tell you that the particular type of MFR work Cristy does has been a game changer for me. As opposed to other structural integration work that can be outright painful and leave you fatigued, her MFR work is soothing and relaxing. After just a few treatments, chronic tight spots in my neck, shoulders and back feel better than they have in years. Also, the positive effects seem to last longer than the typical day or two of other treatment types — and that’s what I’ve been searching out for a while now. Although she specializes in MFR, she can tailor your treatment with other types of bodywork, such as Reiki and Craniosacral, to enhance relaxation. Her office is small, but apportioned so that the treatment area has adequate room for her to move around. Overall, highly recommended.
