Karen is an advanced Myofascial Release [MFR] therapist who has completed extensive training in both the USA and the UK. Through this continued education and application of MFR she has realised the potential benefits of this unique, whole-body therapy on a personal level.
She has a keen interest in soft tissue dysfunction and began practicing alternative therapies over 15 years ago starting with Reiki and Swedish Massage. Since then Karen has developed her understanding and practical abilities by becoming an Advanced Sports and Remedial massage therapist, studying with the Scottish Massage Therapy Organisation. Her MFR journey commenced by completing her training in Integrated Myofascial Therapy with MFRUK. Karen has also completed USA MFR seminars with John F. Barnes and has concluded her internship in his Arizona treatment centre.
Focussing on the connection between mind and body; emotional and physical pain or tension; Karen advocates the use of Myofascial Release treatment after experiencing first hand how effective it can be.
”I understand how people feel having been in a lot of pain myself and looking for a long time for an answer, I have been able to release my own pain using MFR, and I feel that I can use my knowledge and skills to help others release their own straightjacket of pain.”
