About Christine Trice
Since 1998, Christine Trice, CMT, CIMI has been the premiere provider for prenatal, postpartum & corrective bodywork in Sacramento. Christine is the veteran among only several other therapists in the entire valley who are certified perinatal massage specialists. Sutter Hospitals and the area’s most respected OBGYN’s, perinatologists and birth professionals have trusted Christine with their patients for two decades.
Choosing the right therapist to support you from preconception through your pregnancy is an important decision. She’s not only a therapist but an educator, having run a massage institute for several years where she not only taught but also developed advanced curriculum, all while building her private prenatal practice. Coincidentally, she was inspired to pursue various levels of perinatal massage certification during her first pregnancy when she discovered that there literally was not a single therapist in all of Sacramento who had proper training. Her second pregnancy was high risk. And so began her pursuit…
Most of Christine’s clients have been with her from their first pregnancy to their third (and sometimes fourth…) and everything in between: kids with sports injuries, partners with old injuries and moms working hard to maintain their bodies to keep up with their growing families. It’s been a gift to serve so many families over the years and she’s looking forward to the opportunity to serve you, too!
