Going to massage therapy school was one of the very best decisions I ever made, and I’m a proud 2010 graduate of East West College in Portland, Oregon.
My purpose is to support people in connecting with their own bodies and their true spirit, reclaiming their natural power for healing.
I have been on a path of service for a long time. From volunteering as a teenager, through raising our two children with my husband, I have experienced growth through each stage of life. My family and I enjoy the outdoors and the beauty nature presents.
I have become stronger and more capable of holding a safe container for others, especially through serving as a birth doula prior to massage school more than a decade ago. I recognize my privilege and I’m an ally… yes, with the name Karen!
I offer the art of human touch with an invitation to slow down and connect with your belly and breathe…allowing you to connect with your peace and release what doesn’t serve you.
I have a gender-inclusive practice. I am especially excited to work with folks who are motivated to avoid abdominal surgeries that may be unnecessary (such as a hysterectomy to alleviate the symptoms of a uterus that is displaced) and interested to explore natural alternatives. I value making a positive impact and have fun with my teaching if it helps expand someone’s awareness of their options.
