What is the difference between MASSAGE and MYOTHERAPY
Remedial massage is more commonly used to treat non-specific injuries such as muscle tightness or soreness, to provide
people with some form of relief, whereas Myotherapy identifies the underlying cause of the injury to aid in the rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries.
What is the meaning of Structural Integration
Structural Integration is a type of bodywork that focuses on the connective tissue, or fascia, of the body. Structural Integration works to lengthen, stretch, and soften this tissue to restore postural balance, ease of movement, and a feeling of being more at home in your own body.
Karen Garrett...there really isn't 1 word to describe her! She truly was an angel that came into my life unexpected and TRULY wanted to help me to be pain free, healthy and to keep my goals moving forward. I have many many issues with injuries and some new unexpected health issues and finding answers to get better is not an easy step to take. As an athlete we push ourselves to the limit, there is NO downtime, there is no time off. After, 2 knee surgeries, popped out ribs, hip and back injuries....she didn't give me some text book advice, she understands that each person is different, their bodies are different, their mindset different, goals are different. She really looked at who I WAS, and listened, and offered everything in her power to help me...her magical massage therapy being one of these things. She knows the human body, and if she didn't have answers to my pain or issues, she researched to find them. There are not many people who are masters at what they do...Karen Garrett is the exception! Give her your tired, wounded, broken down body and soul, and she will help to lift you to the light!!

I have been waking up with at least a small amount of pain everyday for a very long time. My husband got me booked with Karen and I was extremely excited because I had total trust in her work. My appointment and she EXCEEDED my expectations!! I cannot even describe how my body is feeling right now. Everything feels new and I can actually feel blood flow in my shoulder that I injured over 5 years ago now and I never thought it would feel normal! I am so grateful to have gone and I will be going to her as much as possible!! If you are an athlete or just have pain every morning you need to go see her!!
As an active person, I'm no stranger to injuries. When I crossed paths with Karen, I knew she would be a valuable asset in my life; not only to help with regular muscle recovery, but also to assist in putting me back together after the occasional bump and bruise in the gym. Karen has worked wonders in helping me reach my physical potential. Even after the first session, I felt instantly better. I have suffered for 15 years from back pain, poor alignment, tilted pelvis, and issues with my shoulders. All of which have significantly improved since I met Karen. I completely trust her knowledge and expertise when it comes to my body. The positive difference she has made in my physical well being speaks for itself. I can't thank her enough!

I've been suffering with Plantar Fasciitis for about the last year. I have a podiatrist, wore a walking boot for 3 weeks, paid for insoles for my shoes and had some temporary relief. Soon as I started back up with my workout regime, specifically any type of running, the pain came right back. A good friend referred me to Karen Garrett. I made an appointment and was nervous and unsure of what to expect. Upon arrival, Karen's positive attitude, friendliness, knowledge and obvious love of what she does put me right at ease. After only one session, I had immediate results. I was able to get through workouts with no pain afterwards right away. I went back for a second treatment and continue to be pain free as a result from my sessions! I would highly recommend Karen, she is awesome!!!!
After dislocating my shoulder I never thought I would have full range of motion again. But after just one session with Karen I was FIXED and now a regular client Thank you Karen Garrett #HOLYHANDS
Having been suffering from sciatica for six months, I tried physical therapy, chiropractic services and even a nerve root block . Neither gave me relief from the 24/7 pain I've been enduring. A co worker suggested seeing Karen Garrett. I was literally crooked as I walked in for my first session, favoring my right side due to the constant sciatica pain on my left buttock, hip, thigh, calf, shin, and foot (especially my big toe). A little painful to start, but then I felt amazingly GREAT. I was able to start sleeping through the night again just after my first session!!! Karen has gifted hands. I continued to receive therapy regularly. I am pleasantly surprised at the improvement of my posture and pain relief. I had just about given up, then God led me to Karen.
