"Karen is my massage person. I go because my legs ache. I have fun. It feels nice and my legs feel better afterwards."
-- Ella, age 5

Karen specializes in working with children and babies in her private practice in Palo Alto, California. She works with babies, children, and adolescents with developmental delays, scoliosis, learning disabilities, and many emotional and physical challenges. In addition she works with gifted children, young athletes, and many young dancers from the City Ballet in San Francisco and the San Francisco Ballet.

Karen works with normally developing children to enhance their potential in many areas of their life including stress reduction and learning and focussing. Rolfing is very effective with many structural and postural issues such as muscular tightness, lordosis (swayback), balance and coordination.

Karen recently completed six years of clinical research with Stanford University School of Medicine on Rolfing for young children with spastic cerebral palsy. Results can be viewed here.

She is currently available to see new clients.
