Change is good.

Hi, I'm Karen and I've combined two of my favorite things in opening Metamorphosis Massage & Pilates.  I first started my journey with Pilates around 2001, when I had a back injury and was told the building core strength would be key in preventing re-injury. I enrolled in one-on-one Pilates training at a small studio in St. Paul. The difference those weekly sessions made in my body were amazing! I felt taller. I moved more fluidly. People noticed changes in my posture. I just felt better.

Hi, I'm Karen and I've combined two of my favorite things in opening Metamorphosis Massage & Pilates.  I first started my journey with Pilates around 2001, when I had a back injury and was told the building core strength would be key in preventing re-injury. I enrolled in one-on-one Pilates training at a small studio in St. Paul. The difference those weekly sessions made in my body were amazing! I felt taller. I moved more fluidly. People noticed changes in my posture. I just felt better. 

When I moved to Rochester in 2005, I started the Pilates teacher training program at the Rochester Athletic Club and quickly fell in love with teaching the method. The idea of me teaching at an athletic club was kind of funny since I'm not the most athletic person, but that's the beauty of Pilates.  It's for everybody. 
In the past couple of years I started looking for other ways to help people feel and move better. Adding massage therapy to my offerings seemed like the perfect fit.  In 2017 I graduated from the massage therapy program at Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, and now, I'm continuing my journey with Metamorphosis Massage & Pilates. Start a metamorphosis of your own with massage, pilates or both.  I can't wait to meet you!

Karen is very professional, and excellent at massage, she worked on my tight spots & very conscious on pressure on the sensative areas. Would definately recommend.

Karen can tell which places need special attention and provide exactly what will help.

This is more than just a massage experience. Karen is a problem solver. She is so knowledgeable about the body and knows where to start on complex muscular issues. If you’re having pain or discomfort from jaw clenching, headaches, neck, shoulder, back or hip pain, she’ll know how to help. Make the investment in your health. Her knowledge and skill are worth it.
