Craniosacral Therapy

I have undergone training in levels I and II through the Upledger Institute in Craniosacral Therapy. This modality is a great way to balance the nervous system and decrease pain; however, it can also be a great adjunct to other bodywork practices to enhance the experience and create an overall synergy.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage

I have been trained through Chikly Institute in levels I, II, III, IV, while taking the course to be certified as a lymphedema therapist. Lymph drainage is a great way to promote relaxation and improve fluid exchange and flow. This ultimately decreases edema and promotes improved ability for the body to release toxins through the proper channels, as well as promote improved healing potential. This is a great modality to utilize, especially before and/or after any kind of surgery.

Visceral Manipulation

I have progressed my education with Visceral Manipulation through Barral Institute; going through levels I, II, III, IV, V, VVMU, VVML, and VMAT. I am continuing to take and retake classes to have the most effective results in decreasing tension points and pain, creating a balance within the body as a whole.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

The room was a little warm, otherwise everything was great. Good feedback/tips on stretches to do
by Caroline on Jul 14
Discussion was helpful (as always), relaxing/welcoming environment. Most importantly helpful for my overall health :)

Karen has great intuition coupled with solid skill and expertise. She has an amazing power to heal.

Karen is an amazing practitioneer. The space in which she works should be on par. The building owners should have given more credence to value-add proposition Karen provides and made the rooms larger and entirely sound proof. These are only slight distractions and would not deter me from booking Thai massage sessions with her again and again. Today, one day after, I feel like a new man.

Karen knows how to work into specific areas that need attention and spend quality time to make things better. Best part is she is totally open to input and feedback into what I want and works with me accordingly.

I always feel refreshed, energized, and ready to get back to training after a 50 min message from Karen.
