Karen Gammon
– Registered Massage Therapist

To book a massage with Karen phone or text 902-824-3877 to arrange a time that is best for you.

Karen graduated from the ICT Northumberland College of Massage Therapy program in 2012. There she was trained in a variety of techniques that promote relaxation, relieve stress and tension or achieve a more therapeutic result such as increase range of motion, break up scar tissue or help relieve pain and discomfort. After graduating she continued her training with Indian Head Massage, Cupping and Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM).  She has also learned the benefits of Supplementation With Magnesium Oil through massage, and likes to incorporate this and essential oils, into her treatments.

Massage therapy can be used to treat a variety of injuries and conditions and can also be used as part of a preventative care program, this includes sports training, injury prevention, and stress management.

Karen likes to work with her clients using the following techniques to achieve their goals: Swedish Massage is the most common type of massage.  It combines various hands on techniques including gliding, kneading and cross fiber frictioning to break up adhesions and relieve muscle tension.

Indian Head Massage is a form of relaxation massage that focuses on the face, head, neck, shoulders, upper back and upper arms. It helps release stress and tension, creating a sense of well-being.

Cupping is a form of alternative therapy in which cups are placed on the skin to create suction for the purpose of drawing out toxins, pain management and increasing blood flow.

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) involves the use of a stainless steel instrument (M2T Blade) to assess, detect and treat scar tissue and muscle dysfunction.

Transdermal Supplementation of Magnesium through magnesium massage oil: the use of magnesium oil during a massage therapy treatment for supplementation purposes. Magnesium is also a natural muscle relaxer and therefore helps relieve muscle tension.
