About Us

Since 2002, I have been dedicated to providing professional bodywork grounded in kindness and respect for each person's unique expression of being in a body. My clients seek me out for pain relief, injury rehabilitation, increased mobility, body awareness, relaxation, and spiritual rejuvenation. I work together with my clients to make sure they leave feeling like they were heard and got the level of pressure and service they needed.
  
 I love the work I do and consider it sacred work. I truly believe that when we are in tune with our bodies we have a better quality of life, are more in touch with our creativity and life purpose, and make choices that create better communities, better relationships with ourselves, each other, and the world we live in.

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Karen is an excellent massage therapist and my experience with her H.A.R.T. Method technique was outstanding. I felt so much clearer in my core even days after the session. She also send me follow-up self-care and taught me methods of practice on my own at home. This was a great experience and I cannot recommend it enough.

    Karen is a gem! She is a really skillful practitioner, and a great communicator. I feel like I’ve been put back together!

  • Karen's skill's, her listening, her eyes & energy

    So happy to visit Karen in her new space! Her integration of various techniques continues to diversify and cultivate holistic healing. Already looking forward to my next visit!

  • I feel so good after my massage

    Karen has changed my life. I’m learning how to live inside of my body differently, and now have began my own journey into bodywork due to that awareness. Highly recommended, respected, valued, loved. Infinitely grateful.

  • Karen has incredible magic healing arts skills! She has been my massage therapist for 13 years and no one comes close to the excellent care she provides.

    Karen is the best!

  • I love how attentive and studied she is. I appreciate that when she notices a need in my body that she asks if I’m open to different treatments such as cupping and she adds it to her flow. As a fellow healer, I’m so grateful for Karen and to know that she’s healing other healers is testimony to her incredible work and gifts.

    I absolutely loved my session with Karen! She really listens to you and is very conscientious about your needs, applying the right pressure for you, etc. Her skills are incredibly and Karen is by far the best massage therapist I've ever seen! I can't wait to see her again!

Karen has been my massage therapist of choice for several years, now. Not only is she adept at understanding what my muscles and body need, she is also incredibly intuitive at meeting me wherever I am in my healing process. Working with Karen (as her philosophy is that all healing is self-healing, and she is here to assist in that work) has been nothing short of miraculous for me. I have been able to heal what Western Med doctors have told me are chronic, permanent illnesses (Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia) with her help, and with the help of other alternative caregivers. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
