Karen is a unique force in the body work field. She’s an incredible healer, a passionate teacher and trainer, and a tireless student of the body, always expanding the frontiers of what is known.
I came to Karen for help with severe chronic back pain. Under her care and direction, the pain was eliminated and I learned to move and use my body in better ways. I’ve now been pain-free for over ten years.
Our long-term friendship developed around our mutual interests. I’m a neuroscientist – someone who studies how the brain works and teaches medical students. During the sessions with Karen, I peppered her with questions about her methods, trying to fit her insights into my knowledge of the brain. She, in turn, asked me about the nervous system, trying to broaden and deepen her own understanding of body work methods.
Karen has a probing, inquisitive mind that drives her to understand the workings of the body at a scientific level. She has profound and holistic understanding of the workings of the body. Over the years, I’ve watched Karen develop her training program. Selflessly, she’s worked to find the best ways to pass on her knowledge to others. The body work world is a richer place thanks to Karen’s passion for healing and teaching.
