KAREN L. THOMPSON, L.M.T.
Licensed Massage Therapist, Reiki Master
"My life as a seven-year-old child brought me to learn the benefits of self-care after my mother got really sick. Being the youngest, I was the one at home with her and we started a daily practice of hand, foot, and scalp massages to help her feel better. Then at twenty-three, through my own series of undiagnosable medical issues, I learned how some of my struggles were from physical injuries, while other parts were emotional traumas. These experiences not only shaped the way I listen to clients, but to this day facilitate the way I work with my clients to this day."
Karen Thompson is an experienced massage therapist with an intuitive whole-body approach. Karen graduated from the Muscular Therapy Institute as a muscular therapist in 1994 completing over 1,375 practice hours in medically based massage therapy. Then opened her full-time practice in 1994. Continuing with post-graduate studies in fibromyalgia, compassionate touch therapy, vibrational medicine, integrated energy therapy, Reiki Master and certified Meridian Hatha Yoga teacher.

She has worked on athletes, office workers, and stay-at-home parents as well as individuals with injuries and illnesses. Her services are not only available in her office - she also delivers care through home visits and hospice work. Working with a chiropractor's office early in her career, help her to use strong assessment skills as she determines how each client’s body may respond the different range of treatments. She then uses a combination of techniques, including both massage, stretching and energy work, to bring significant relief to those who suffer from physical pain or are looking to reduce stress.
"Life is a journey full of lessons along way. We always need to keep learning and practice what we learn every day."
Recently, Karen underwent a spinal fusion from her T4 vertebrae to her tailbone. She attributes her swift recovery to the combination of massage and physical therapy. She is now working towards developing a post-surgical support group/class for people who need help with lifestyle accountability.
