Cupping is one of the oldest medical therapies practiced in the world today. This remarkable therapy employs negative pressure, rather than tissue compression, for superior results in the wide array of bodywork techniques. Millions of people use this therapy worldwide because it is safe, comfortable and extremely effective for many cosmetic conditions and health disorders.
Cupping releases rigid soft tissues, drains excess fluids and toxins, loosens adhesions, lifts connective tissue and brings blood flow to stagnant skin and muscles. Myofascial release is direct, and correct applications addresses a myriad of debilitating and stubborn conditions. Cumulative treatments restructures myofascial bands as well as provides excellent lymphatic drainage.
A cupping treatment consists of magnetic cups being applied to specific areas of the body for 10 to 30 minutes, depending on the client. Stationary cupping is often followed by gliding cupping (cupping massage). Warmth may be experienced as the qi (chi) moves through the body. Cupping assists in removing both tension and toxins from the body and relieving pain in the muscles of your body.
Dr. Karen utilizes as many as seven different types of cups in her practice and is certified at the advanced level of cupping.

During an energy session, Dr. Karen uses qi (chee), or vital energy to harmonize the systems of the body. Stagnant energy is removed and vital energy restored. As a result you experience a reduction of pain, release of stress and a healthier body as well as more energy.
Dr. Karen does not need to touch your physical body during an energy healing session because she works in your energy field. You may feel tingling or a warm sensation as the qi (chi) moves through the body.
We have many chakras (energy centers) on and off of our bodies. We are like an orchestra! When one of our chakras is ‘out of tune’ our whole being is out of order and we don’t function like we want. Having your chakras balanced allows you to feel, think and function in a more balanced and grounded fashion.
Life has many ups and downs. We are affected by people, our environment and all the experiences we have had since childhood. All of these things cause our chakras to shfit. Regular chakra balancing will help you in all areas of your life.
You just lie on the table fully clothed and allow Dr. Karen to balance each chakra! 45 minutes $125.00
Acupressure is an ancient healing art that uses the fingers to press key points on the surface of the skin to stimulate the body’s natural self-curative abilities. When these points are pressed, they release muscular tension and promote the circulation of blood and the body’s life force to aid healing. Acupuncture uses the same points but employs needles, while acupressure (the older of the two) uses gentle but firm pressure. Acupressure, using the strength and sensitivity of your practitioners hands can be done to you and by you. This therapy is great for pain relief, energy balancing and relieving symptoms of medications and disease. 45 minutes $125.00
