Notable Experiences

Bodywork
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.

This was my first time to see Karen. She did a different technique on me for a tight spot and it worked pretty well and felt pretty good after that. She is very professional yet super congenial at the same time. Will definitely be back.

Karen was very professional, caring, and courteous. I had a migraine and she thought in advance to have the lights turned down when I arrived. She counseled me on the type of massage that would be good, and today my back feels great. (I had the massage yesterday.)

Karen is the consummate professional. This was the most wonderful and effective massage I have ever had. The atmosphere of her office is relaxing and welcoming. Her technique is wonderful and she explains what she is doing. She is friendly and frank. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a massage and if I could afford it, I would go to her on a regular basis.

It wasn't long enough! Karen is great and finds areas of pain that other masso-therapists have not. She is friendly, and being a retired nurse, definitely knows the human body and issues that come from tension, stress and years of over-use or bad habits. After multiple visits I will rate her amazing! My first visit was excellent!
