About Kristin Jerger

Kristin Jerger, MD, LMBT (NC #11719) is a physician, licensed massage therapist, musician, and music teacher who lives with her highly spirited, twin sons and husband in North Carolina.

She received her medical and neuroscience research training at the Medical University of South Carolina (M.D.), George Washington University Medical Center (residency in Psychiatry), Children's National Medical Center, and George Mason University's Krasnow Institute of Advanced Study in Fairfax, Virginia.

Dr. Jerger's private practice, Path of Ease Family Massage Therapy, draws on her medical, psychiatric, research, family, and musical backgrounds to help children strengthen their connections to their families and the world. The focus of this practice is promoting peace from the inside out.

Helping children develop a deep sense of understanding, respect, and kindness for themselves and the connections within themselves is foundational to developing empathy for others. Empathy is a basic ingredient necessary for promoting peace since it is the grounding necessary to render conflict resolution skills effective. My practice uses music and touch to engage children and their parents and emphasizes connection, touch, mindfulness, strategies for stress reduction, and simply spending time together.

The songs offered here were written and performed by Kristin as part of her practice. We hope you and your children enjoy them!
