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 love Karen.. she is the best. I have been going to her regularly for the past 6 weeks and I see such a change in my body. I always feel better after my massage. I think another reason why I prefer her to others and make that long drive to Chardon is because as a retired nurse she has so much additional, knowledge, training, and experience that you won't find somewhere else. Her advice is always spot on and God has truly blessed her hands.
