About Karen, your masseuse

Karen, Your Masseusse


My name is Karen. I love giving and receiving massage. I’ve experienced many wonderful massages over the years, in different parts of North America. In 2004, when I had my first Esalen® relaxation massage, I knew that this was something special. As happens for so many, I had a spiritual experience receiving Esalen relaxation massage under the open sky, with the sounds of the ocean waves providing a lulling backdrop. Beautiful colors swirled through my body and I felt a bliss I’d never experienced before. I am excited to bring Esalen relaxation massage to Manhattan, New York, to people who can really appreciate the relaxing energies of the West Coast as a complement to the terrific electricity of New York City!

I began massage training in 2008, in San Francisco. This is when I learned how pleasurable it is to give another person massage. In 2014 I returned to Esalen to train in the best relaxation massage on earth. I am a certified Esalen massage practitioner and a member of the Esalen Massage and Bodywork Association.

I am a Certified Sexological Bodyworker. I received my California State Board of Education certification in Sexological Bodywork through the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality in San Francisco.

I am also an attuned Reiki master, a certified and registered yoga instructor, and a long-time student of the Diamond Approach. These paths and practices have deepened my capacity to work with presence, breath, and energy, both in my own and my clients’ bodies.
