"The best massage I have ever had in my life was from Karen. For many years I have worked in the field of Healing Arts. I am a registered massage therapist and so I know a good massage when I receive one. Karen has been gifted with an amazing ability when it comes to treating her clients through the art of Shiatsu. The Shiatsu treatment I received from Karen was incredible. I have yet to find anyone who can come close to giving a treatment with such love and kindness and, gentle but firm touch. Karen's hands reflect what is in her heart. Thank you Karen. Much love and light from, Linda Burton, Ontario"
