Karen is very friendly and knowledgeable. I went in with pain in my shoulder and neck and she was able to work on the area so that I left in no pain at all.

Amazing. I felt so much better! I did not feel rushed in and out like I have at some places. Very sensitive to my needs, rather than just doing the same "routine" for every client.

I loved that Karen took her time in getting to know me and my aches n' pains. Also a nice chat during my massage and she addressed the "specific" area/s I really needed work on before heading out of town for my next project. Very pleasant experience. I am already looking forward to seeing her again and making her my regular massage therapist! "Ryan"

Karen possesses knowledge of the body beyond what I have experienced with any massage therapist before. The emphasis here is on therapy as Karen focused in on my injuries and with great skill worked to provide the necessary therapy. She provided me with information and ongoing guidance in providing a strong foundation for my healing process. She is a true partner in healthcare! I am looking forward to experiencing strong and lasting healing under her ongoing care.

I searched high and low in Westlake, where I live, and neighboring communities for a good massage therapist. Time and time again I was disappointed. Then I met Karen who gave me the best massage ever! She is not only amazing in her technique but is very informative about the body and the healing process. I'm screaming from the rooftops to check her out! I will definitely continue to see her!

Facial Cupping

I had facial cupping done. I wanted to try it for its anti-aging properties. Karen was great. She's so calm and relaxed that I immediately was put at ease and I was really amazed at how relaxing the cupping was. It was almost like a face massage - but better! I've only been once and it takes a handful of visits to see the effects, but even if it doesn't reduce wrinkles and bring the collagen back from wherever it's hiding - it's so relaxing I would do it anyway!

Karen was extremely helpful in discussing my problem areas and offering suggestions for pain relief. She focused on those areas during the massage and spent extra time on them. Her touch was gentle, yet powerful in working out my areas of pain. She was very professional and knowledgable. I would highly recommend her. One of my best massages ever!
