Remedial Massage Therapist
Karen is a compassionate and professional Remedial Massage Therapist. She believes in honest communication with her clients and will ensure they leave the clinic with the knowledge required to achieve the best possible outcome on a physical, spiritual and emotional level
Karen’s interest in massage started about 17 years ago whilst travelling around Australia. She found and fell in love with Far North Queensland where she was lucky enough to become involved in working at the beautiful Daintree Eco Lodge & Spa in the Daintree Rainforest which is situated in the heart of one of the oldest rainforests in the world. Whilst there she was introduced to a range of unique products and treatments using ‘touch therapy’ which aims to bring back into balance all the elements of that person.
After a few years, Karen moved to Perth where she continued her quest for well-being and studied Cert IV in Bowen Therapy.
When the mining boom hit she looked at this as a great opportunity and decided to join the many FIFO workers leaving their friends and families in the great quest of “Creating the Australian Dream”. Unfortunately, she saw first-hand the devastating effects this type of lifestyle creates in people such as anxiety, stress, depression and mental health which affected her fellow workmates who were away from their families for sometimes months on end.
This once again proved a major turning point for her and she decided to go back to her passion for health and wellbeing by studying a Diploma in Remedial Massage to assist others achieve the best they can be.
For those who are unsure what to expect from a remedial massage you can expect your massage to include Trigger point therapy, Acupressure points, Movement release techniques, Myofascial, Deep remedial strokes and therapeutic stretches.
Karen will assess each client’s needs individually and will explain what type of therapy she believes would be appropriate for her client’s individual circumstance.
Karen is now studying Reiki levels 1 and 2 to expand her knowledge of energy healing to deliver a more therapeutic remedial massage alternative.
Due to her experience, Karen incorporates her massage techniques to relieve mental and physical fatigue, anxiety and stress for Mums-to-be, Existing Mums, Dads or stressed out workers to help them to switch off, unwind and fully reap the benefits of a wonderfully relaxing massage.
Her studies have shown that hormone levels associated with stress are significantly altered when massage therapy is introduced which leads to mood regulation and improved cardiovascular health. This can often improve the symptoms associated with health disorders reducing the reliance on prescribed medications.
Karen is also proficient in sports injuries, myofascial release, deep tissue, movement release techniques, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation, pregnancy, oedema and trigger point therapy.
Relaxation music, aromatic scents and a lovely ambience in the massage treatment room will help your body relax even before you get on the table!
