The Holistic Collective was founded as a result of more than a decade of experience in the field of massage therapy and collaborating with various professionals and practitioners. Tina Craig, who became a licensed massage therapist (LMT) in 2009, a Reiki master in 2015, and ran her own practice in Shreveport for seven years, has worked alongside physical therapists, chiropractors, a med spa, senior living communities, and a holistic center.
Tina understands that each one of us have different needs at different times, so each of her therapy sessions are tailored to your unique needs and preferences. Some may prefer a combination of multiple therapies during their session. The ultimate objective is to assist individuals on their journey towards wellness and healing by employing a range of techniques and therapies that she has acquired throughout her career.
A relaxation therapy that improves circulation, encourages lymphatic drainage, and aids in an overall sense of well being. Long, kneading strokes are the basis of this type of massage.
DEEP TISSUE THERAPY
This therapy involves applying sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue.
Myofascial release works with the myofascial tissues that may have become stiff, tight, or immobile. Pain relief, and increased mobility can be achieved with this therapy.
REIKI - ENERGY BALANCING
Reiki is a Japanese form of energy healing that promotes relaxation, reduces stress, anxiety, and increases overall well-being. It can also be used to clear energy blockages one may be experiencing.
A massage for those expecting, that ensures the safety and comfort of mother and baby. *Must be past the first trimester to receive this type of therapy.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR DURING MY SESSION?
During a traditional massage therapy session you'll be covered and appropriately draped with sheets. We will suggest that you either be completely undressed, or undressed down to your level of comfort.
A Reiki only session doesn't require you to be undressed. We do suggest you wear your comfy clothes during this session.
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY MASSAGE THERAPY SESSION?
We ask that you arrive well rested and hydrated. A night of heavy drinking or partying isn't ideal the evening before your session as a hangover can disrupt your experience. Avoid consuming heavy meals and rich foods before your session. The more grounded you are in your body the better your experience will be. We ask that you avoid drinking alcohol and smoking the day of your session.
THE PRESSURE OF THE MASSAGE IS TOO HEAVY, BUT I DON'T WANT TO SAY ANYTHING. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
Please let us know if the session is uncomfortable! Our feelings will not be hurt, and we won't think any less of you if you request that our pressure be adjusted. This also applies to feeling too hot or cold during your session. Let us know and we will be more than happy to accommodate you.
WHAT'S YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?
Cancellations must be made at least 24 hours prior to your appointment. Same day cancellations will result in a charge of 50% of the services scheduled.
DO YOU TAKE WALK-IN'S?
Our services are by appointment only, and same day appointments are rarely available. We encourage you to book your session in advance.
