Registered Massage Therapist (RMT)
Karen became a registered massage therapist in 2008, after completing a 3000-hour program in British Columbia. In 2011, she opened a clinic in Revelstoke BC, where she lived and worked until her recent transplant to the East Coast.
Her practice has evolved along with her learning and deepening understanding of the intricacies of the human body, health, and holistic wellness.
She has taken courses in Myosfascial Mobilization, pain science, joint mobilization, and most recently, a two year program in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, a gentle and profound technique that allows a deep listening to your own body’s intelligence for healing. She undertook a 200-hour yoga teacher training in 2015, and meditation and postural exercises inform her own and client self-care.
Karen has a wide array of techniques to draw upon to come up with a treatment plan that will support your injury rehabilitation, chronic pain management, health, and overall wellness. She has an interest in working with post-concussion recovery, and chronic pain management, as they are part of her own health journey.
When she isn’t working, Karen finds balance by being out in nature, hiking, mountain biking, walking, beach-combing, and being on the water. She is looking forward to getting to know the Amherst community and the natural beauty of the east coast.
