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

First massage with Karen. She has that unique blend of professionalism and empathy that provided an excellent massage experience for me.
by Denise on Jun 07
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.

Just a great experience. Been coming for several months, Karen always takes care to note problem areas and those that might need to be avoided. Always a relaxing highlight to my day.
