I HIGHLY recommend Kari for your body massage and relaxation.
My stubborn shoulder pain (from too much computer time) was gone shortly after her massage and I felt WAY lighter!

She asks detailed questions to figure out your needs and accurately assess what type of massage you need the most, instead of just performing a routine massage.

Her office/massage room has such a relaxing and cozy ambiance, you feel at home while getting top-notch service. Not to mention her friendly energy makes you feel welcome from start to finish :)

I am very picky when it comes to massages. I like a deep massage form someone with experience, expertise and knowledge, especially in relieving neck and shoulder tension.  Kari is amazing at this and she is a great masseuse. Also she is professional, kind, makes you feel totally comfortable and she is a really good person. I always feel great after a massage with Kari. I Highly recommend.

Good Morning Kari,

Just wanted to let you know that you did an awesome job Thursday. What you fixed on the left loosened the right ham string up. I'm pain free and playing tennis. THANKS!

Be well.

“My massage with Kari was top-notch, possibly one of the best massages I've ever had. She really listened to my needs and paid attention to the affected area (shoulder blade). She made sure to ask me how deep or strong I wanted the pressure which I really appreciated because so often I'm disappointed with what I call "wimpy" hands, the amount of pressure she applied was perfect. She went above and beyond, the massage never felt rushed and there was no wasted time. Since seeing Kari, about a week later, the pain is gone (I'd been suffering for over a month). Very happy overall, she is my new go-to therapeutic masseuse in the area.”

“You never know how sore & hurt you are until it goes away.  I feel great.  You fixed me on so many levels.”  -Kate M., Cornwall, NY (text message)


"My back and neck had been a mess and Kari worked out the knots, including my arms!
Left hamstring has been unhappy for weeks and thanks to Kari, the all too familiar discomfort is gone now.
Instead of continuing with each sore area she's released tension and pain from let me simply say....
Kari is a masterful massage therapist.
Her practice is truly a Jewel of the Hudson Valley!!"

"She makes my achin’ bones feel younger. I’ve been getting massage therapy for many years in many places around the world and Kari is the best. Highly recommend."

-Don S., NYC


"I have been a client of Kari's for about 3.5 years. I've always known she was good but never more have I realized how absolutely wonderful she is since I have been traveling lately. I went to other massage therapists while away and not one has been has professional and so amazing as Kari. There is no comparison.  

Kari provides a beautiful peaceful setting for your massage. Just traveling to her office I start to relax! 

Every time I go to her she keeps getting better and better!  My health has been really great the past couple of years and she has been a big part of my being healthy!!!  She is by far the best massage therapist I have gone to and I will keep going!!"

"This is an ode to Kari, my massage therapist. 

Her massages are the best I have ever experienced! Kari just gets how to relax the body mind and soul. She has great hands, but more important a great touch. Kari knows how to discern where work is really needed. She relieves aches, pains and simple tired muscles. When my 75 minutes are over my body feels renewed, but I am never ready for the massage to end!

I am so glad I met kari in Upstate NY. She travels far to avail me of her powers! All a testament to her dedication to her practice.

Kari is a healing woman with a great soul and spirit "

"I have been going to massage therapists for many years and Kari is the BEST therapist I have ever had.  She is flexible with scheduling appointments, spends more time to complete treatment needed, and, from her work, it is very clear that she is an expert in her area and has deep understanding on how to reduce stress and tension in different parts of the body.  I feel much more relaxed and lighter after each treatment session.  I strongly recommend Kari."  

-Hadi S., Kingston, NY


"Kari creates a warm, safe and inviting atmosphere.  I have been a client for nearly eight years and she just keeps get better!  Kari is great at modifying each session to meet my needs."  

-Anne C., Hunter, NY
