About Kris Shaw

Kris Shaw couples Massage Seattle -Kris Shaw has a special affinity & patience in working with pregnant moms & new fathers in West Seattle or North  Seattle.

Over the 35 year span of her career in the healing arts profession, Kris has taken many specialty classes in pregnancy & birth acupuncture, pre and post natal massage, women’s health & gynecology, pediatric acupuncture & nutrition and couples massage support during birth. It is my pleasure and joy to support women and their families during these life changes.

In my trainings, I’ve studied and integrated into my pregnancy practice the physiological, structural & emotional changes of pregnancy & have developed specialized techniques to help alleviate the discomforts of pregnancy. This is especially needed with prolonged  morning sickness, potential miscarriages & breech birth turn arounds.  I often work alongside midwives and their doctors when there are higher risk pregnancies and am  tuned in to the complications that can happen in different phases of  pregnancy.
