A Chat with Karen at Healing Arts Professionals
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? My approach to massage therapy centers around relaxation and balance. Massage treatments will allow you to move more freely, give you greater flexibility, and relieve built-up stress. Other benefits of massage include improving posture and circulation, relaxing sore muscles, and fostering sound sleep.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? The inspiration behind my decision to be a massage therapist was heavily influenced by my 20 plus years in retail. It was the realization that there were a lot of people out there who were suffering from either physical pain or emotional "pain," and wanting to help them on a different level than retail.
What do you love most about your job? Helping others to feel more balanced and less stressed. It means more than words to me if I can help someone who is suffering from physical pain, or who has an incredibly busy and stressful lifestyle and needs to have some down time to relax and regroup.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer? The best reaction that I have ever had from a client? Seeing the relief in their face, and a softness in their eyes, at the end of the session. Then I know that I have done my job! I always appreciate the kind words from my clients, but when I can physically see the effects, that is priceless.
