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

I had a wonderful massage experience with Karen! She listened to my needs and areas of issue. Used some new massage techniques that helped with tightness that I have never experienced before from others therapists. The environment was very warm, clean and relaxing. I will definitely be returning for another massage. Thanks Karen!

I loved everything about it, she is an rn so she understood what I went through with my back surgery and how to address it. Best massage I have ever had. She takes the time to go over your problems and what causes them.

Karen explained everything well and helped me feel comfortable from start to finish. I felt wonderful after the massage, feeling no discomfort and actual relief from most of my symptoms. I’ll be back in 2 weeks!

I didnt like that she had to leave. Could have taken at least 24 more hours of being "in the zone". I'm recommending Karen to everyone that I know.

Excellent message with immediate results. As soon as I’m off the table, I can feel the difference. For someone who’s been dealing with lots of upper and lower back problems, this is a great help!
