Karen's coaching was invaluable - she is open and frank about facing fears and taking action. She gently inspires you to become more productive and take small steps towards a goal. Everything seems possible - I'm no longer intimidated or overwhelmed.
Karen is a miracle worker! I've started to suffer with a stiff shoulder over the last few months, which at the time of my visit was worsening day by day. The day after i visited Karen, my shoulder had gained much more movement, the pain had eased significantly and overall the stiffness had greatly reduced. I didn't expect to feel such a difference so quickly. Karen has made such a difference.
I am a frequent user of Karen's service and would recommend, she's very good at undoing all the muscle tension in my back caused by my bad posture with her deep tissue massage.
Very knowledgeable. Good advise on stretching, sitting posture and exercise. Focussed massage on shoulder, neck and backbone, reduced my shoulder pain tremendously. I would recommend people to seek her consultation and expertise.
I thoroughly enjoyed this massage. Karen got rid of any knots in my shoulders and I awoke the next morning with no aches or pains. Need to book another treatment soon. Would recommend.
Karen has been helping me over the last few months with an ongoing back problem but more recently I have developed a niggling hamstring and Karen has been a godsend in helping me both with some sports massage and some advice on stretching. She is making a real difference to my well-being.
I found Karens support invaluable when trying to make a decision about the best direction for my career. They helped me to make the links between what I wanted to achieve in relation to my business and my other goal of improving my work/ life balance. In other words, the coaching helped me to see the bigger picture and ‘join the dots’ instead of making these decisions in isolation from each other. The coaching was friendly and non-judgemental, asking relevant questions which enabled me to make the best choices for my situation.
I started working with Karen during a particularly traumatic period in my life. Our sessions served as an anchor for rationality at a time when I didnt feel that I had much. Working together enabled me to unravel my thinking and behaviours and decide if they were serving me or needed to change. The coaching helped me achieve clarity when I needed it most.
I met Karen 8 years ago after she started a treatment room at our international offices. I had previously suffered a bad whiplash injury which together with a stressful job caused me continous neck and upper back pain. After the initial treatments to release my badly knotted muscles followed by weekly 30 minute sessions she kept me virtually pain free. Since retiring last year I have continued to see Karen on a private basis, her custom made cabin is a very comfortable and relaxing environment for treatment. I would and have recommended to family and friends.
Karen is an expert in her field and always provided an exceptional service to me. I have a history of back problems and she helped me overcome these while also introducing me to new techniques that reduced stress and increased my focus and energy. Personable, always friendly, and great value for money I would recommend Karen in a heartbeat.
I would thoroughly receommend Karen, she provides a first-class service at very reasonable rates, and is professional and personable at all times. I really only have good things to say about her!
The master-builder of human happines no one rejects, dislikes avoids pleasure itself, because it is very pursue pleasure.
I would certainly recommend Karen for all massage treatments, reflexology and cranial treatment. Karen is very expert in what she does and I would not hesitate in recommending her to work colleagues, which I have done in the past.
I have had treatments from Karen for many years including both sports massage and more recently Craniosacral treatments. In all cases I always come away from treatments feeling so much better. Not only is Karen well trained in a number of treatment techniques e.g. - Massage, Craniosacral therapy, Reflexology but gives advice on posture and exercises to help address any underlying issues. A thoroughly holistic approach and all delivered in such a friendly and positive manner.
Karen has provided a fantastic, friendly and beneficial service to AOL staff for many years. Karen and her team are always polite and efficient and show genuine care for their customers. I couldn't imagine AOL without her!.
I first met Karen after my osteopath recommended her. Apparently I'd had a problem with my lower back caused by a neck injury. He said my muscles were too tense and that was causing the problem. I have been visiting Karen for a number of years now, and not needed another trip back to the osteopath. Karen has extensive knowledge, as well as technique and I fully trust her approach and value her opinions. There has not only helped maintain my neck/back, but has removed a problem I was having with my Achilles that the doctor recommended steroid injections. I would recommend Karen to anyone, and will continue to use her services myself.
Karen knows her stuff and provides a great tailored service. I always leave feeling more flexible and that my body is in better condition than when I arrived!
I have used Karen`s services as a sports massagae therapist on many occassions for various injuries. I can honestly say she knows exactly what she is doing and I cannot recommend her enough.
Karen is always pleasant and provides an excellent service easing away the areas of tension.
Karen and her team provide a hugely beneficial service. The Team Actuate massages have always been highly rated and had one of the highest take up rates for any of the employee benefits provided. Regular massage made for happier, more comfortable, less stressed employees. I would definitely recommend this service to anyone.
After suffering with headaches for so long, I found Karen. With visits having deep tissue massage the headaches started to become less frequent and the tightness in my neck and shoulders improving with each visit. Karen is extremely knowledgeable and puts you at ease. With constant headaches you start to worry there is something serious going on, but then Karen makes you realise that this is a very common problem. Money very well spent and headaches are now quite rare.
