Kari's mission is to provide care to the “whole person” through massage and energy work with the purest most compassionate intention that will touch the soul. The healing power of caring touch is invaluable in our fast passed stress filled lives. Kari has had many years of experience in the healthcare field and prides herself on compassionate care and consideration of the “whole person” It was through her own personal healthcare ordeal that she realized how much caring for the whole person was lacking in general. Kari sought alternative treatments as a compliment to the other care she was receiving. It was at that point that she realized the magnitude of the impact that complimentary alternative medicine had on her overall health and well-being. It was through this experience that she found her calling and needed/decided to make a change.
