Kara's understanding of physiology is outstanding. Add to that, she has a rare intuition about how your daily routines factor into muscle stress and pain--and always has a path forward to address it.

Kara is the most intuitive massage therapist I've known. She listens carefully when she asks what you'd like work on, and she's able to figure out how the various muscles are interacting, working on spots that seem unrelated--and then things feel better! Since she can figure out exactly what needs work she doesn't need to use as much pressure--so you get relief AND the massage itself it relaxing.

Kara does a excellent job of knowing just what mussels are hurting or tight and working to smooth them out. Has always done an excellent job. Would highly recommend her for anyone to use.

Kara is best massage therapist I've ever had and I tried quite a few. She has superb knowledge and hands, along with a wonderful personality / tableside manner. I recommend to anyone to go directly to her place, rather than bouncing masseuse to masseuse at one of the chains that employs dozens of massage therapists

I had some lower back issues and Kara does an excellent job to find the trouble spots and work through the issue. Felt so much better after my massage. Would totally recommend her for your relaxation or deep tissue massage.

Kara is the absolute best massage therapist! She is so knowledgeable about the body, being able to 'read' my muscles, finding those knots and getting them worked out. Kara doesn't just give you a 'massage', she gives you a 'treatment' for all those sore muscles. I've had many massages in the past and no one else in this area comes close to her abilities!

Kara has the hands of an angel or devil depending on what you need. She magically finds areas and works them out. Especially neck, shoulders and back. She is the best!

Kara is absolutely amazing, she not only helps heal physically with her touch but she is so easy to talk to and can help you heal emotionally as she is never judgmental, she is a wonderful listener, and truly caring. I would refer Kara to anyone in a heart beat she is an essential part of me trying to live a healthy lifestyle.

Kara is one of the most gifted massage therapists I've ever had (and I've seen quite a few struggling w/fibromyalgia for many years). She knows exactly what pressure to use, and how to get me in the best place to be my best self. I give her my highest recommendation. You won't be disappointed.
