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.

All good! Wish it were covered by insurance so that I could go more often.

She makes sure to find out where you are hurting and what you need work on. Verifies that she is not doing anything too hard or too light based on your input.

Karen is very skilled in lymphedema therapy. She massages and relieves the swelling in troubled areas. She shows interest in her clients. What a find for me!

It was an amazing experience! I definitely left feeling better than when I got there. Karen took the time to read my MRI results and explain in lay terms what was going on and why. The massage was incredible. Karen addressed specifically the problem areas. I'm looking forward to my next visit

Karen is fantastic. I highly recommend Karen for massage services. She is very professional and does incredible work. Her office is comfortable and clean. Karen excels at locating and working on problem areas. Deep tissue massage is amazing. She really works through the knots with incredible pressure, yet your muscles end up relaxed. Wish I could see her more regularly!
