As an Integrated Body Therapist, I was trained in a wide range of manual therapies. I use this experience to determine which therapy would be most beneficial on it's own or they can be combined in a way that means I can tailor my treatments to focus on the individual needs of my clients. Alternatively the client can choose the therapy most attractive to them from the list below.
Therapies offered are:
Deep tissue massage
Lymphatic drainage massage
Trigger point therapy
I charge £45 for 1 hour and £60 for 1.5 hours, these rates are applicable regardless of the therapy used.
I use the Self Centre in Bury St Edmunds for those who find it convenient.
A local mobile service is provided as well, which costs £5 more than my standard rates to cover travel and set up time.
" To whom it may concern
I have visited Karen on many occasions. I have had problems with my legs seizing, cramping and at times really not wanting to function at all. I can honestly say that Karen was professional and solved the problem which has enabled me to play golf again and walk with ease. Karen's knowledge of the human body is immense and I'm sure whatever your issues are, Karen will ease them for you. "
" Karen is a magnificent therapist and her ability to treat problem areas combined with her thorough understanding for the anatomy is second to none. My clients and myself could not recommend her more, she has very healing hands! "

" I have been using Karen for a few years now and the difference in my back is phenomenal. The injuries I have received are sports related and are old injuries. She is very thorough, her knowledge of anatomy and physiology is incredible. She is cheerful, professional and a lovely lady to receive treatments which work from. Highly recommended. "
" I'm a new customer and have always gotten regular massages since I have been a teenager. (approx 20 years lol). Even with those services there are only a handful of therapists that I would recommend or have had memorable experiences from. At the top of this list is Karen Borthwick. She has taken her profession/gift seriously and has incorporated total wellness into her therapy making the massage appointment a wellness event, not just an hour massage. I recommend her to anyone and will always have her contact info so when I am where she is I will go so I won't be disappointed with a stranger who doesn't care or doesn't love what they do. "
" For the last 2(?) years I have had a weekly shiatsu massage with Karen. Her technique is excellent helped by a thorough understanding of how the body works which enables her to intuitively focus on parts of the body that need it.I have a history of a lower back problem but regular shiatsu treatment with Karen means that this problem rarely re emerges.
She is professional, cheerful and reliable and I can fully recommend her either to anyone who is already used to massage or who wants to try it for the first time "
