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 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 services

I had not hit a tennis ball in 18 months [hip issue/major pain]. After 4 sessions with Karen I was able to go to an hour and half drill today, and walk away with no pain.

Karen, you are professional, knowledgeable, and great at what you do. You truly care about your patients (my son, who is 19, involved in sports, has seen you several times over the past two years, too), and helping us to feel better. After ONE visit, I noticed a definite difference and significant relief, and am anxious to get back in to continue to work on all the tightness in my right arm, lower and upper, shoulder, shoulder blade, and neck. Slight pain in my lower LEFT back? Had no idea that that area is also connected to what I was feeling in my right arm-WOW! See you soon! Thank you!!

It is hard to find a massage therapist who can work with chronic and acute pain conditions. Karen's hands are so masterful! She is truly a massage artist!

Karen was amazing! She targeted the areas I had issues with (sciatica) right away and I felt wonderful immediately.

She was attentive, thorough, and willing to make an appointment with short notice. It was an enjoyable experience for me and for my 10 YO, who was the client.

I liked Karen very much. She is excellent at streching out the mucles. More treatment necessary to deal with my problems.
