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.

I'm so happy to have found Karen, she has helped me out so much. I just started with lymphedema after breast cancer surgery in December. She brought relief starting with the first session. Very professional and caring. She helped me understand what was happening with the lymphedema and how to manage it.

Karen is amazing. This is the only place I go for massage now. Her skill makes all the difference, and she targets problem areas, making a world of difference.

Karen is extremely professional and knowledgeable. She listened to what my needs were (relaxation and focus on my plantar facitis) and she addressed them during the massage. Highly recommend her!!!

Yesterday was my first massage with A Nurse's Touch. Karen is very professional and makes one feel welcomed. This was by far the best massage I've had; I will be her client for life!

I have had many massages from Karen over the last six months. She has strong hands, a very thorough knowledge of musculature , and can work out knotted muscles and other stress issues. I highly recommend.

She’s AMAZING! Very nice and has a lot of emphathy for her patients and that’s what I look for. I drive 50 mins for her care and wouldn’t dare think to go anywhere else. She even called me outside of business hours to make sure I was ok due to me being in the hospital and to give me advice because she knew how worried and frantic I was. She’s awesome! She deserves 10 plus!
