Massage is my soul's purpose and I love using my hands AND my feet to help people feel better. I graduated from COCC’s massage therapy program with a 4.0 GPA and a focus on deep tissue, sports massage and neuromuscular techniques. I trained in Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage and Ashi Thai during my two-year residency in Portland. I continue to study and incorporate new techniques into my practice, and I am always learning new ways to communicate with the body. I blend techniques from the various modalities I've studied with Ashiatsu massage to create a customized massage session tailored to meet each client’s needs. Whether you want to relax, ease your pain, improve your athletic performance, or recover faster, I'll work with you to achieve your goals.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Kathleen on Jun 26
Karyn had a sixth sense about which muscle groups were tight, using specific techniques for each one -- from strong pressure in the hip area, to delicate light fingers on the back of my neck. From head to toe, I felt very well cared-for & look forward to the next time!

Customized focus on my personal needs. Releasing tension through Karyn’s blend of modalities. My inner environment gets a reset and learn areas to focus on in my self care practice. What a gift!

Karen took time to get to know my concerns and history before the massage. She addressed them during my session. Afterward, she had good recommendations and I happily signed up for my next appointment.

I loved this experience, Karyn did an amazing massage.

Karen is simply the best. Her ability to find and fix every little knot, cord, grittiness and tension in my body is pretty amazing. The intensity of her work is spot on! I have places that require patience, technique and solid pressure to get into. No problem for Karen and her great footwork. Thanks Karen for consistently getting me back on track physically.
