Karen received her initial training in Massage Therapy from the Bancroft School of Massage Therapy in Worcester, Massachusetts in 1991. She is constantly striving to improve her massage and bodywork skills and since graduating has completed more than 1500 hours of continuing education. Her passion and goal is a working partnership with her clients to help them reduce their stress and pain and improve their quality of life.
Currently, Karen is focusing on combining KMI Structural Integration work with Core Movement strategies to help clients recognize old patterns which are causing discomfort and to adopt new structural and functional patterns which may work better for them. This is currently the main focus of her continuing education as well.
