New masseuse comes to town

Kristine DeBerg may be the new massage therapist in town, but she has been doing therapy work for 17 years.

– Having lived in Truckee for just two months, DeBerg is working out of Dr. William Paxson’s Mountain Community Chiropractic with massage therapist Marcelle Hall, located at 11359 Deerfield Drive in the Albertson’s shopping center.

DeBerg, who specializes in relaxation and deep tissue therapy, has worked as a massage therapist for 17 years in Arizona and Chico, Calif., and to her it’s the best job in the world.

“I find great joy not only in the actual giving of the massage, but also in the one-on-one interaction I have with a client,” DeBerg said. “Many have shared their life stories which has enriched my life and made me a much more patient, understanding and compassionate person. It’s also very wonderful to have someone come to you with a physical problem and leave feeling much better.”

In the past, DeBerg, a member of the American Massage Therapy Association, has maintained a very steady clientele which she attributes to the fact that she tries to give her very best and thorough massage to each client.

“I’ve had the great fortune of having a brother-in-law in physical therapy who has been a wonderful mentor to me over the years and has taught me many deep-tissue therapies to help people with a wide variety of complaints,” she said.

Her combination of relaxing massage techniques and deep tissue work has made many clients – so pleased, she still travels occasionally to Sacramento and the Bay Area to give massages.

“I feel very lucky to be working with Dr. Paxson, who is a very talented and kind chiropractor and Marcelle Hall, a great massage therapist with a lovely personality,” DeBerg said.

Because of the high level of recreational opportunities available in the Truckee-Tahoe area, she expects to be working with many people who have sports injuries.

“It seems like most people here have a sport,” she said. “You probably do your high volumes during the ski season, and that’s when (Marcelle and I) will be busier.”
