Chiropractor Phillip Kriss D.C.

Chiropractor Maple Valley WA Phillip KrissDr. Kriss opened Kriss Chiropractic in 1983 and has been practicing chiropractic ever since. He has added physical therapy and massage to his clinic, and is great with sports injuries. He runs Kriss Chiropractic and is the head doctor here. His main jobs are to run the company, maintain profitability and reputation, and be a "grunt slave" as he calls it.

His favorite thing about his job is hearing the "thank you" he often gets after an adjustment. He loves helping the lives of others and helping them do what they wan to do but couldn't do before.

Dr. Kriss is from West Allis, Wisconsin. He graduated from Nathan Hale High School in 1977. He attended the University of Wisconsin and graduated in 1979. He continued on to Palmer Chiropractic College and completed his degree there in 1982. He then worked for a few chiropractors in the Pacific Northwest area before opening his own clinic.

Dr. Kriss is married to Heidi. He has three daughters (Ashley, Tiffany, and Amy), one son (Terry), and a step-daugther (Sierra). He loves to swim, bike, run, race (he is a several time Ironman), do home improvement projects, and loves photography.

One fun fact about Dr. Kriss is that he was a girl scout!

Chiropractic Maple Valley WA Matallia Fairchild Massage TherapistNatalia graduated from Bellevue Massage School in 2003. She is originally from Minsk, Belarus and currently lives here in Maple Valley. Natalia has been with Kriss Chiropractic since 2011 and is excellent with both treatment work and relaxation massages. She specializes in trigger point therapy and deep tissue massage. Clients have said that Natalia has "magical fingers" and can sense their every need.


Tina received her training at the Cortiva Institute of Federal Way, where she graduated with honors. Having experienced the powerful effects of massage after suffering from a pinched sciatic nerve, Tina is passionate about using her skills to improve the quality of life for others who are suffering from an injury or chronic pain. She is able to incorporate a variety of massage techniques into her massage sessions. These include Deep Tissue work, Myofascial Release, Positional Release, Hydro Therapy, Trigger Point Therapy, Neuromuscular Re-Education, and a variety of active and passive stretching techniques.

Tina is known for her gentle and caring approach, believing that injury treatment massage is best done after the muscles are warmed up and the client is relaxed and comfortable. Careful communication throughout the process ensures that the client is in control of how deep the massage is, and aware of what’s happening at all times. Tina enjoys working as a team to find the source of your pain and help relieve the discomfort. She is always willing to provide education about home self-care to extend the benefits of massage and help prevent future injury.

Everyone can benefit from a massage! It can help to improve range of motion, correct postural imbalances, encourage blood circulation, facilitate lymphatic drainage, reduce muscle adhesion, break up scar tissue, release tension, and improve the condition of injured, tired and overused muscles. Aside from these physical benefits, massage releases endorphins which help to promote relaxation, provide stress relief, lessen depression and anxiety, and help overcome emotional blocks. Tina will work closely with you and the Chiropractor to develop the most effective treatment plan to help you reach your goals and improve your quality of life.
