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.

I really was in need of a massage at 34 weeks pregnant, and i felt so much better after! I will be returning for another one before labor and also postpartum!

Everything was perfect. It was exactly what I needed after falling down in my yard two days ago. Thanks for making time for me yesterday.

I went in with neck pain and numbness in my ear and neck. Karen listened and worked on my problem areas. By the second day, the pain was reduced significantly and I am getting some feeling back. I highly recommend her! Thanks Karen!

The best massage I've ever had. I went in with a lot of pain in my neck and left feeling amazing.

Karen was professional and knowledgeable in her work. She gave me a deep tissue massage and skillfully found my trigger points. Her treatment and technique was very effective.

I was in severe pain for many many months. Unable to do daily activities and normal day to day things. Went to Nurses touch and had relief instantly the next day and was completely able to go back doing normal activities and things. Will go back again soon. Also recommend to anyone in severe pain due to myofascial pain.

Karen was so welcoming and knowledgeable: a true professional. From the moment I arrived, the atmosphere was calm and relaxing. She also listened to the pain issues I was having, addressed those during the massage and even taught me some stretches to help alleviate the pain between massages. I would highly recommend for anyone looking for a truly therapeutic massage.
