Karen practices subtle neuromuscular healing, at the intersection of massage therapy and energy work.

This non-invasive modality based on SMRT can alleviate chronic pain, and is gentle enough for anyone. This therapy is recommended in particular for that which has been resistant to other forms of treatment.  It has the potential to alleviate bony misalignment as well as issues with muscles and connective tissue.

Karen is a licensed massage therapist, trained in many traditions, from Swedish and deep tissue, to Thai and Kurdish massage, to Reiki.  She has found over the years that making subtle suggestions to the body can allow radical instant and lasting change, by encouraging the body to heal itself.

To have a healing session in your location in Vail, pricing is $150/hour.  If you are able to come to Karen's home, the charge is $100/hour, or $50/half-hour. Please give at least 24 hours notice of cancellation, or there will be a full charge.  Pay by cash or check, or if you prefer to pay by credit card, you can do so here:

Karen is wildly talented with a subtle touch. She has helped me increase mobility and range of motion through different injuries. Karen creates a supportive and healing space and her method is gentle and effective.

“What I like best about the SMRT technique is that it works! I have issues with hyper-flexibility, and often have subluxation of my ribs and right shoulder. This results in deep, continuous pain that is not relieved by traditional massage.

SMRT eliminates my pain, releasing muscles and ligaments and allowing my body to relax and return to a proper alignment. The benefits are immediate and extraordinary.

SMRT is a gentle, extremely effective technique, and Karen is an excellent practitioner.
— Lisa Ourisman

For the established practitioner, Karen also practices meditative energetic healing.

This modality is something that Karen discovered while working with clients and is similar in effect to Reiki. Folks describe acceleration in the energetic healing process.

It’s practiced sitting across from each other in meditation; the result is that the participant is more engaged than in a traditional energy session. The practice is silent, although there is the option for discussion afterward.

If you might be interested, feel free to email Karen to ask any questions!
