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!

Great massage. Karen asked questions to customize my experience. The room and music were very relaxing. I felt great after the massage.

Karen is pleasant, professional, and skilled in massage. She helped my shoulder begin to heal. I feel like a new person. Thanks, Karen!

Karen creates a welcoming relaxing atmosphere. She listens to my needs and “listens” to my muscles as she massages finding exactly where to target. I leave feeling relaxed, pain free, and even taller.

Karen is a great listener and very skilled in her ability to find the sources of pain and tension in the body. I'll be a regular!

Truly therapeutic. Karen has a great degree of knowledge and can target trouble spots for really effective pain relief and improvement. Seriously the best massage therapy I’ve ever had after years of trying different therapists and techniques.
