Hi I’m Karen,

Im excited to be a part of the team here at Entire Physio. I believe our centre embodies the true concept of holistic healing with its professional yet warm (friendly) approach to servicing our valued clientele.

My journey in the health and wellness industry spans just shy of two decades. My early career days were in retail (fashion shoes then sports store), developing my customer service skills.

Throughout this time I had a strong passion for weight training and competed bodyshaping contests. This is where my interest in human movement and nutrition began and led me to embark on my Remedial Massage Therapy studies in 1998, and later on included Clinical Aromatherapy.

I began my private practice in the following year, and enjoyed  growing the business over the coming years, always thankful and privileged to be in a position to assist my clients to achieve their health and wellness goals, and in retrograde , for the personal growth that I was awarded in doing so.

In 2005/6 my fiancé, now husband Luke and I were fortunate to travel overseas. I was working as a Massage Therapist at Neals Yard Remedies Edinburgh and I was impressed with their multidisciplinary business model combining varied therapies and services under the one roof. A French ski resort was the next setting for us that allowed me to offer Remedial treatment to our chalet guests after a hard day on the slopes.

I cherish my other roles as wife and mother (my most challenging job so far) to three energetic children and now fully understand the definition of busy! I’lll be forever grateful to my family for the joy and lessons that they bring to my life, and I know they’ve made me a better version of myself, and a better therapist as a result.

My interests include spending time with loved ones, friends, preparing and eating nutritious and delicious food, time outdoors, yoga, weight training and holidays!

As a therapist i am honoured to assist in facilitating my clients rehabilitation or wellness goals, and I’m continually in awe of the human body and its capacity to heal itself. During treatments i establish a real connection with my client by listening to them, empathising, and thus tailoring the massage therapy to the individual.
