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.

– RCRT Therapist (Registered Canadian Reflexology Therapist) 

I am a mother of two wonderful children and have been married to my best friend since 2004. My main goal in life is to have a happy and healthy family. We are a very active family and are grateful that we have the ability to do so. It is my belief that in order to be happy you need to be as healthy as you possibly can be and work hard every day to maintain this. I love helping people!

What is Reflexology? Reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet, hands, and ears, which correspond to every part, gland, and organ of the body. Through application of pressure on these reflexes, reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation, and helps promote the natural function of the related areas of the body.

Reflexologists work from maps of predefined pressure points that are located on the hands and feet. These pressure points are reputed to connect directly through the nervous system and affect the bodily organs and glands. The reflexologist manipulates the pressure points according to specific techniques of reflexology therapy. By means of this touching therapy, any part of the body that is the source of pain, illness, or potential debility can be strengthened through the application of pressure at the respective foot or hand location.

Who Benefits from Reflexology? Some of the benefits of reflexology include its ability to stimulate nerve function, increases energy, boosts circulation, induces a deep state of relaxation, eliminates toxins, stimulates the central nervous system, prevents migraines, cleans up urinary tract conditions, speeds recovery after injury or surgery, helps relieve sleep disorders, reduces depression, and relieves pain. Furthermore, it can help ease the treatment of various cancer and even helps to soothe the pains of pregnancy, even those occurring after the baby is born.

Many of us find ourselves on our feet all day at work. Whether you work in an office, a factory, a field, a hospital, or anything in between, there is a good chance that you put a lot of weight and stress on your feet every day. The thing is, that stress can also manifest itself in the other parts of our body. It is a similar situation to back pain. For back pain, people often get massages, so it makes sense that there should also be foot massages, right? Reflexology is much more than a foot massage, but at its foundation, that’s the easiest way to describe the process. This specific area of massage therapy also includes the hands and ears, making it more of an extremity massage than a foot massage.
