Lead therapist--UHHS Parma Medical Center

I have many and varied experiences since earning my massage license in 2012, including massage in spas, athletic facilities, massage group practices and in hospice care. Most recently I am the massage therapy program leader for a large suburban Cleveland hospital (which is part of the University Hospital Health System). I have been growing the program for the last year and the program has been very successful in helping patient satisfaction. As the lead therapist I have been able to acquire the skills needed to perform therapy for a wide variety of clients (from cardiac, to OB, to rehabilitation after joint replacements, spine surgeries and strokes to name a few). As a nurse I have a passion for medical massage, but can really help people with relaxation and stress reduction as well.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

Wonderful and knowledgeable!!!

My Physician ordered massage therapy for some rehab I need. I have never had a massage before, so didn't know what to expect. Karen, is very skilled at putting you at ease, and explaining everything she will be doing. After just one deep muscle session, I am able to do my therapy exercises with less pain, and my movement is much better already. Thanks Karen!!!

I highly recommend Karen. My deep tissue massage was incredible. She really took the time to work into the muscles that were so tight behind my shoulder blades. She let me know what she was doing and why. I was able to relax, even through the tough kneading of the stubborn areas. Felt great afterward. Will definitely see her again!

Karen took care of the problem spot on my shoulder and back with the right amount of pressure. I will return and recommend to others.
