Karen deeply enjoys working with the body and continues to broaden her knowledge and skills with continuing education and training on a regular basis. She is considered expert in the highly effective John F.

"Touch was never meant to be a luxury. It is basic human need. It is an action that validates life and gives hope to both the receiver and the giver. The healing of touch is reciprocal." –Irene Smith
