About Us

YOU are the focus of my practice. Stress?  Anxiety?  Physical or Emotional Pain?

Are you feeling stressed out from trying to manage family, work, and/or social obligations? Do you experience neck, shoulder, hip, and/or back pain from your job or other activities? Maybe you need to "get out of your head" for a bit, or have some "me time" to relax and decompress.
Good news! Regular massage can help you feel better.

Most of my regular clients come to see me every 2-4 weeks to manage stress and anxiety....others come in for relief of discomfort or pain due to postural related issues such as sitting all day, carrying heavy shoulder bags, or other specific work-related physical issues.

Because you won't always have the same complaints each visit, my sessions incorporate a variety of techniques to...

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • It was my first time with Karen so we were getting to know each other. I like that she took the time to address any issues I had and the massage was great.

    Best in the area. She's ready to adapt to my body's needs as they change from appointment to appointment. Karen is a great part of a holistic physical recovery program.

  • I had a wonderful experience. Karen asked me about any issues I had physically and she paid more attention to those areas. I can't wait to go back again!

    Karen is very thoughtful, caring and professional. She has a wide selection of treatments to enhance your experience. My favorite is the weighted blanket! Karen is genuinely interested in how you feel and how you respond to treatment. I leave deeply relaxed and have better range of motion in my frozen shoulder. I look forward to each appointment.

  • Karen takes her time to understand her client as a whole before the massage session. You never feel rushed at any time and at the end of the session you're sure to feel an improvement in your well-being.

    Excellent massage, great background "spa" music, yummy aromatherapy choices, and Karen never skimps on the 90 minutes you've paid for.

  • Karen is a knowledgeable, personable professional. She always takes the time to check in with a client before proceeding. She allows for personal foibles. Her space is a very warm, accepting place.

    The space was quiet and comfortable. Massage was thorough. I would definitely return if financially possible.

  • Had an amazing and fulfilling experience.

    I thought the massage was great - I only wish it could have lasted longer! Karen was wonderful and I highly recommend this place! Barbara

Thank you so much for another great massage, Karen! Always love your attention to details. And I loved the himalayan salt stones, oh my goodness, I will be doing that again for sure!

Karen was so generously accommodating as I changed my appointment multiple times. She welcomed me warmly and within 2 minutes on the massage table I thought to myself, "This is health." I opted for a deep tissue massage. Karen worked into key places that have never been touched in my prior massage experiences. A+ for communication, pressure of massage, offering (free!) extras (warm towel, heat compress, eye mask, essential oil therapy), enthusiasm, and knowledge of anatomy. Karen has a healing touch and a loving heart as it is clear she cares about her clients far beyond the massage room. I will definitely be back!

Just what the doctor, chiropractor and psychiatrist ordered! Karen is one of the best and to be less than two minutes from my home -- now that's heaven.

The space is very comfortable and the massage is expert and intuitive. I had very tight tense muscles from stress and physical work and she worked them out with warmth and just the right pressure. She is receptive to your needs and any info you might provide. I felt very thoroughly relaxed, there was nothing I didn't like, except that it had to end.
