Karen L. Culpepper (she/her/hers) founded the Maryland based clinical practice, Embracing Rhythm, in 2015. Karen has been a massage therapist for the past 10 years, with a practice anchored in intuition, the sacredness of touch, and healing presence.


Karen's unique herbalist contribution centers on the ways in which the energetics of plant medicine can support deep healing. Her particular focus areas are inter-generational trauma and its impact on physiology and womb restoration. Within the intersection of historical trauma of the African slave trade and womb healing, her study and knowledge of cotton root bark offers a powerful perspective on role of plant spirit healing in the context of political changes. 

Karen is a graduate of the University of Maryland, College Park with a BS in Family Studies and is a graduate of the Potomac Massage Training Institute (PMTI).  She earned her Masters of Science in Herbal Medicine from Maryland University of Integrative Health (MUIH), formerly known as the Tai Sophia Institute.
