Massage therapy is a hands-on therapy that promotes health and well-being through the use of pressure and movement on the body and muscles. 

Born and raised in the Midwest, Karen graduated from the University of Iowa in 2005 with a B.A. in journalism and German.  In 2011 she moved to Ashland, Oregon where she attended the Ashland Institute of Massage, graduating in 2013. 

Karen specializes in neck and shoulder, low back, and gluteal work. She has experience with myofascial release, PNF (proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation), and deep tissue. She works slowly with intention and incorporates light stretching and emotional ease into her sessions. She has experience assisting clients in healing from auto and work accidents, strains from repetitive use, and postural imbalances. 

Karen will be providing medical massage. Medical massage is somewhat different than spa massage. Medical massage focuses on resolving specific muscular and structural problems, while spa massage focuses only on relaxation. Range of motion limitations, muscle spasms, neck, shoulder and back pain are all problems addressed with medical massage.  
 
At Inner Gate Acupuncture we work with you so that you can experience improved health and wellness. We are excited to add Karen to our growing team.

Massage Therapy at Inner Gate Acupuncture

FEEL BETTER TODAY!

Foot Massage

All massages at Inner Gate Acupuncture are given in a warm and private treatment room. Your therapist will discuss your health concerns and goals with you before your session. They will leave you to privately dress down to your comfort level. When you are ready, lie down on the massage table and cover yourself with the sheet. Your therapist will knock before re-entering.

Make sure to communicate with your therapist throughout the massage.   If you are cold, want deeper or lighter pressure or don’t want a certain area of your body touched let the therapist know. You can ask for changes or stop the session at any time.

Drink plenty of water on the day of your massage. This will reduce soreness and lightheadedness that can happen after a massage. Try to give yourself plenty of time for your treatment, so you can relax more deeply.  

At the end of the massage, the therapist will leave the room so you can dress in private. Take your time getting off the table and getting dressed. It’s a good idea to have a glass of water in the waiting room before you head off.
