graduated from Arizona School of Massage Therapy as a licensed Massage Therapist in 2010 and has worked for Dr. Hirst ever since. She loves being part of a team that promotes healing. Her favorite thing in the whole world is spending time with her two teenagers! Christine also loves to travel, create things, and spend time with friends and family. It is said that when a patient falls asleep, it is a great compliment to a massage therapist. Once, when Christine was massaging a great, big body builder, he fell asleep mid-sentence and began to dream. He was speaking gibberish and kicking and flailing his legs. At the end of the massage, he didn’t remember a thing, but had a great laugh when told about his actions!

is our in-house medical assistant, taking care of patients who need allergy testing or blood draws. For many years, Leisa worked in a facility that manufactured medical devices. One day, she decided that she would rather work directly with the patients; something more hands-on. She graduated from Pima Medical Institute and is now enjoying every aspect of her career. Being part of a team that helps people feel better makes Leisa happy to come to her job every day. When she’s not at work, Leisa enjoys hiking, camping, reading, roller skating, singing with her church worship team, and spending time with her grandkids.
joined our staff as a massage therapist and we are glad to have her. Her broad range of interests and certification as a life coach make her an asset to our team. Ana completed the Masters in Massage program at the Southwest Institute of Healing Arts. She is excellent at myofascial release, perinatal, trigger point, sports therapy, and deep tissue massages. Drawing and dancing are high on the list of things to enjoy on a day off, but most of all, she wants to see people happy and laughing.
is one of our wonderful massage therapists. Needing a change of scenery, Ana actually relocated to Phoenix to attend the Arizona School of Massage Therapy several years ago and the rest is history. Her favorite thing about being a massage therapist is that she knows she is making a difference in her patients’ lives. Helping them heal or relieving the stress from their muscles makes her day! In her free time, she loves to have fun with her family.

In her spare time, April likes to bake, binge watch Netflix, craft, and spend time with her friends and family.
