Sports Massage Therapy
Karen is a Level 3 Sports Massage Therapist and has also attended courses with the well renowned Susan Findlay to study Transverse Soft Tissue Release (TSSR) and neck, jaw & chest massage including intra-oral (extremely effective for those who grind teeth and suffer from headaches). The main objective of TSSR is to elicit a return of the muscle memory by engaging the nervous system and resetting the affected muscles back to their original resting length. It is very relaxing & incredibly effective in easing tightness & tension.
Karen incorporates her knowledge of body movement (yoga) to provide a comprehensive recovery programme for her clients.
