Massage is my profession, not a hobby.

People always ask what got me started in massage. At age 20 I began getting chronic migraines. The doctor gave me medications and wanted to do a brain scan. I was so scared.  I told a friend and she suggested massage and chiropractic. Who doesn't like massage, right? After a 30 minute neck massage and cervical adjustment, I was headache free!

People always ask what got me started in massage. At age 20 I began getting chronic migraines. The doctor gave me medications and wanted to do a brain scan. I was so scared.  I told a friend and she suggested massage and chiropractic. Who doesn't like massage, right? After a 30 minute neck massage and cervical adjustment, I was headache free! I was hooked. 

After massage school, I took many continuing education courses focusing on specific ailments and injuries. This passion for focused work led me to open my own massage office. Five years later, I have expanded to add a second therapist.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork or Coaching services

I feel like I receive a very therapeutic massage with emphasis on whatever specific areas that might be bothering me at each visit.

I had a really great 1st massage by Karen. Very professional, mindful of what I shared with her prior to the massage and felt energy move out of my body the next few days. I also felt parts of my body open up over the next few days which was great! Thank you!

It was everything it could have possibly been. Private, comfortable, warm, and a great help!

Karen was very professional and friendly. Even as a new client, she was quick to put me at ease. Karen made every effort to promote a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. My massage was great!!! It was tailored to my specific needs and areas of pain. I could definitely tell a difference by the end of my massage. Thank you, Karen!

Karen did an amazing job! I walked out of my massage feeling so much better. She focused on the areas I needed her to focus on and it made a huge difference in how I’m able to move.

Karen is the best massage therapist Ive ever had.
by Sarah on Jul 14
Karen is the most skilled massage therapist I've ever seen. She has an intuitive understanding of my needs as a person with chronic pain issues, using just the right technique for just the right amount of time on each area that bothers me. She is also very responsive to my requests for locations to focus on and how much pressure I'd like. I can't recommend her enough!
