What I enjoy most about my job is that I am able to completely focus on one person and their needs for at least a full hour, with no interruptions or distractions.
I like to educate my clients on what I feel and notice in their bodies and help them peice together why they may be experiencing pain and what we can do as a team to get them feeling their best.
I really enjoy the differences I see in people and they joy they experience when they leave my office feeling like a new person.
Karen was wonderful!! She really gave me a lot of relief and she is very knowledgeable. I really enjoyed her style and massage techniques. If you are looking for someone who can really target your problem areas Karen is the massage therapist to go to! Thank you so much for giving me an amazing massage I look forward to future sessions!
Karen is fantastic. I have had a bunch of different therapist work on me during my tennis career and she opens me up so much better then anyone else I have ever had. I will be going to her for a very very long time. Do your self a favor and book your appointment right away.
I was having a lot of pain in my shoulder after a recent fall. Karen really focused on the problem and explained what muscles were tight and showed me some stretches I could do. When I left her office I had almost no pain, it was great.
When working with a new client it is imprtant for me to get a full understanding of your goals for massage treatments but also your medical history so I can ensure you are receiving the best service that won't interfere with any medications, past or recent injuries, surgeries, etc.
Once we are both on the same page about what to expect, we'll get started with your massage. The first session is very imprtant because it gives me the opporunity to assess what is going on with your body, where you might have tension or pain and where those problems are originating from. I need this baseline to help make a plan for future sessions and gauge how your body responds to certain techniques and pressure. Then we will work together to make a plan for when you should come back and what we need to focus on for future sessions. I will usually follow up with you in a week or two to see how you're feeling after treatment and what I can do differnetly to provide the maximum benefit.
Looking to just relax and unwind but all of the above sounds too complicated? Don't you worry, I am very skilled at providing a relaxing, soothing massage and evironment. I have worked at a few different spas and have helped many people feel relief from stress and exhaustion. I recommend a hot stone massage to promote the deepest relaxation and make you feel warm and fuzzy all over.
