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 had my first of many lymphatic massages. I can't believe what a difference from only one massages. Karen was very caring and sat and talked to me about my individual needs. I feel confident that she will help me get back to my old self in no time.

I appreciated that Karen is a nurse, which added to my confidence in her skills. Her massage was much better than previous massages by others & I immediately felt relief & loose in my muscles. I highly recommend Karen.
