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.

You know that commercial where the girl wakes up and her hair is all in her face - she looks like she had the sleep of her life? That's how I felt after my massage

I loved everything about my massage. Karen is so empathetic, respectful, and caring. She brings such a comforting presence. She is great listener too. The massage was so soothing, relaxing and I slept better that night. God bless you Karen, May He bless the work of your hands and return the kindness you give a hundredfold. Good luck at your new location. You will be truly missed at Independence, Oh. By A.M

Karen is amazing. She takes to time to find out prior to the massage if I have any specific problem areas or areas that I would not like worked on. It is such a relaxing hour and I feel so good afterwards. The atmosphere is very comfortable and peaceful which adds to the experience. Can't wait to go back.
