Feeling stiff, cramped or tense? Christa Helbling, a licensed massage therapist, can help with that.

Helbling is setting up shop at Los Alamos Chiropractic, located in the Mary Deal Building at 2610 Trinity Drive. She will be available from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Mondays for the next four weeks, starting June 15. After working for a period of time in Switzerland, Helbling will return to Los Alamos starting on Sept. 7.

She offers her clients a lot of experience. Helbling has provide bodywork and massage for 20 years, with some breaks. She has worked for the past 10 years in Santa Fe.

Helbling said she decided to offer her services in Los Alamos after getting some encouragement from her friends.

“I have friends working here,” she said, “that think it still needs more massage therapists because there is a need or message therapy.”

Helbling said she got started in message therapy while working as a mid-wife in Switzerland. During this time, she explained there were doulas or helpers so she provided massages to child-baring women in the hospital.

It’s work she discovered she enjoyed. “It is touching all these different people and listening to their bodies, their stories and help them find comfort living in their bodies,” Helbling said.
