About Karen, Maine LMT #319

     A graduate of Clark University, Worcester, MA, and former Director of the Maine Healing Arts Festival, Karen has been a body work and yoga practitioner for over 35 years.   She trained at The Bancroft School of Massage, Worcester, MA and has completed hundreds of hours of advanced body work training , specializing in CORE Myofascial Therapy.   Karen is also a Karuna REIKI Master Teacher.

     In 1998 she traveled to India to attend one of the largest and oldest religious festivals in the world; Kumbh Mela.  It was this trip that  inspired her to study Ayurveda.  

In 2012 she graduated from New World School of Ayurveda, Gorham Maine.   She is also well versed in Ayurvedic Bodywork through her trainings at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, Lenox, MA and continues to study advanced Ayurveda for the Practitioner there.  

  My early studies with Wataru Ohashi, (Shiatsu for health),  had a profound impact upon me.   Wataru Ohashi predicted that the more "high tech" we become as a society the more the need for "high touch".   

     She is a board certified Ayurvedic Practitioner and professional member of the National Ayurvedic Medical Association (NAMA) Certificate # 18367782 and the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA), #2605.
