Karen is a skilled professional with strong, sensitive hands. She was able to work out knots in my neck accumulated over years and years. If you are lucky enough to get an appointment with her, you will be very pleased!

I recently benefitted greatly from a 90 minute massage with Karen. She's a true professional and brings deep intuitive knowledge to her practice. Her work is excellent. She's kind and wholly present in her work and displays deep understanding and warmth. She's an exceptional therapist.
