It was at this point Karen was introduced to Holistic Therapies in seeking help for her own health issues and eventually, after gaining a qualification in Anatomy, Physiology and Body Massage, she progressed to teaching this course at the college.

Karen has been working within the Health and Holistic field since 1997 and continued to  enhance her professional development in other courses such as Clinical Aromatherapy, Reflexology and Bowen Therapy.  She worked for many years from her home clinic in Bridlington. Karen lived abroad for nearly 9 years, during which time she owned and ran a gym and an Alternative Therapy Clinic, which also offered other treatments such as Acupuncture, and Craneoscaral Therapy.

Since returning to the UK, Karen has continued to provide Holistic Therapies concentrating on Reflexology and Bowen Therapy. 

Karen is professionally qualified and a member of the Federation of Holistic Therapies (FHT) and the Bowen Therapy Professional Association (BTPA).

“My aim as a Holistic Therapist is to treat every client as a unique and special individual and tailor their specific needs and requirements to the treatment they receive. I look to what is happening as a “whole” rather that just treating the symptoms – a “holistic” approach is vital taking into account mind, body and spirit.
I have great passion for natural healing and holistic therapies having experienced the many benefits personally. Each therapy I have qualified in has greatly helped myself overcome my own health problems, so I know that they work! The proof of the pudding so to speak!
It is evident that many of us are willing to “put up” with common health issues such as IBS, constipation, PMT, menopausal symptoms, back ache or migraines etc. but the truth is that you can find relief from these through the power of natural healing and holistic therapies. We can indeed improve the overall quality of our health and lives by regularly incorporating these wonderful therapies in  to our way of life. I feel it is vital that you invest in your health, as it is one of the most important aspects of experiencing a good quality of life, pain free and symptom free. Much the same concept as taking your car for a regular service - if we fail to do so we would definitely experience problems with its general running. As they say: "prevention is better than the cure.”
Once you have experienced these wonderful and beneficial holistic therapies I believe you will continue to enrich your life and health”
