Christine Varela, LMBT
Christine is a born and raised Charlotte native whose passion is deeply rooted in health, fitness, and a pain free quality of life. At a young age she delved in varsity sports, anatomy, nutrition, and biomechanics courses, as well as CrossFit and bodybuilding competitions. She has a background in personal training combined with an extensive yoga experience. She believes a well-rounded quality of life includes not only the physical state but an integration of well-balanced mental and emotional states as well.
Graduating from North Carolina School of Advanced Bodywork in 2017, she has experience with chiropractors and therapeutic environments. Working alongside the doctors and integrating her own knowledge of bodywork has grown her practice into a practical and holistic approach.
Being a US Army Special Forces veteran, she believes goals are accomplished through teamwork. An integrative approach to health includes not only bodywork sessions but the collaborative effort of all doctors, therapists, and most importantly- the client themselves being a key integral part to their journey of lifelong health.
