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

by Dave on Mar 21
Very professional, very skilled and very thorough. Deep tissue massage was excellent.
by Patricia on Mar 14
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.

Karen was exceptional. Knowledgeable, thorough and a pleasure to interact with. She understood the problem I was having with my shoulder and was able to address it effectively. Her understanding of muscle anatomy, insertions and origins far exceed that of many massage therapists. Definitely an overall great experience resulting in a decrease in my shoulder pain

Karen was extremely professional and gave a very good massage. She asks you questions as she performs her service to make sure she is targeting any problem areas you have. She was really very good. I highly recommend her services.

I'm recovering from open heart surgery and was experiencing a lot of muscle pain and tension in my neck, shoulders and upper back, which Karen immediately recognized due to her experience in cardiac nursing. She is competent, professional, calming, fun and easy going. She explains what she's doing and why. Karen's massage therapy was the best I've ever experienced. I highly recommend her.
