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

Karen is the best at lymphatic massages and drainage. Everyone says they can do lymphatic drainage but there’s a certain process. She always makes me feel so much better after my massages. So glad I found her.

It was amazing, you always get the kinks out!
by Terri on Feb 20
Karen’s medical background allows her to accurately identify and properly attend to my massage needs. She conducts her work professionally, yet fosters a safe and comfortable environment. I especially appreciate her checking in periodically on the appropriateness of the applied pressure and areas that I feel need further attention.
