Somebody pinch me

Somebody pinch me. Out of work in time to catch the second half of the Pats game. No one home but me. A bowl of leftover Duckworth lobster risotto. A cold colors light. My fuzzy robe and my ugg slippers. Are you kidding me right now? #missyoukate

HEALING ARTIST Cape Ann Fall 2015Testimonials

“This was one of the most amazing healing experiences I’ve ever had! The combination of touch, angelic sound healing and sacred oils was Divine.

Christine is a glowing soul with a unique and special gift. Thank You!”  J.G.

“The first time in two years my leg has not hurt all day…beyond amazing.

I have been having massage every week and begging to get deep work done but it has not been touched until Christine got to me and in one visit! I am so pleased to have any relief…imagine a whole day pain free after excruciating pain for two years. Christine gives the best massage you will EVER GET not just angelic but productive, not just divine but medicinal, not just tender but deep & thorough.” K.M.

“Christine’s work is superb. Only someone with her mastery level of experience could craft a healing treatment of such depth. Her centering presence, deep stillness, fantastic massage, attunement to my stresses (without telling her even) and sound healing takes it over the top. She is a world class practitioner”. C.B.

“What a peaceful experience. Getting lost in the most beautiful harp music and singing in the background, then letting all my muscles relax while the vibrational therapy resolves back and arm issues. I have had a massage from 4 other therapists and NOTHING compares to the magic that Christine puts into a session. Maybe that’s why I always book at least a couple of sessions each time Christine comes back home to MA to visit old friends.” J.H.


In addition to her nationally renowned healing sessions Christine is an award winning healing music composer, harpist and singer. She will be doing a Healing Harp Concert at the Rocky Neck Cultural Center on Saturday, November 7 at 7:30 pm joined by Kem Stone and Stan Strickland.

Where the Sidewalk Begins- Walk this way again Railroad Ave

Hi Joey,

A sidewalk returns to Railroad Avenue. Some call it place making or Smart Growth. I say sometimes it’s nice to turn back time. Look at the old postcard image. We are lucky to have some of the same wide streets. Clean sidewalks – they’re great for residents. Great for commuters. Easier for families. Thank you DPW! It looks beautiful. I hope it inspires Shaws to match it up on the other side.

Bonus: It’s easier than ever to #strideby the Jeff Weaver mural at Ben’s Wallpaper and Paint and have a closer look. That mural changes now and again.
