About Me

Inspired by Life Events

Hello! I am Karen, a Certified Massage Therapist specializing in Holistic Health. I have  a private practice focusing on acupressure combining breath-work and Reiki for balancing emotions and restoring health. My private practice consists of anyone who is interested in alternative self-care.  

Throughout my life, I have studied with a variety of healers, spiritual teachers and later worked with a group of retired horses and an Equine-Assisted Learning program. Each step along the way has gradually allowed me to be a facilitator in healing with Massage Therapy, Energy Work and Equine-Assisted Healing to transform a way of being. 

For the love of horses, I am also an Equine Massage Therapist bringing care to the horses that participate in an Equine-Assisted Therapy program.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.
