Karen in Leeds (North Yorkshire ) + York, United Kingdom
Hi, I’m Karen and I have been a Sports Massage Therapist for the last eight years.
I ran my own clinic in South Africa for 6 years but have since returned to the UK where I continue to treat a wide range of clients which have included but are not exclusive to professional, amateur or other sports people, musicians, surgeons, gym members, office workers and generally anyone who has had chronic or acute problems, of all ages.
These problems can arise from injuries or overuse, postural or bad habits and I treat them with various Sports Massage techniques such as trigger point therapy, muscle energy techniques, soft tissue release, deep tissue manipulation and stretching to name but a few. All treatments are tailored to the individual’s needs and bodily responses and therefore no two treatments are the same.
I will always look at the whole picture to diagnose the real issue and treat the body as a whole, not just relieving the symptoms of where the pain is radiating from but also where it stems from. I also endeavour to help the client help themselves and educate them on how to manage the problem, thus preventing further injury.
My passion for massage and helping people to free themselves of pain and/ or physical restrictions is what drives me - let me help you too!

“To Whom It May Concern:
I have been touring for about 22 years with many different bands (Dave Matthews, Tracy Chapman, Primus, etc etc...)
The masseuse I had today for The Weepies show at The State Room in SLC, Danielle, was perhaps one of the best I have ever had.
Everything from her disposition to her skills. My entire band and crew adored her.
I felt it was important to tell how amazing this woman was, and how she brightened our day.
