Book an Appointment.
I have been seeing Karina for years! I took some time away and am so glad to be back. Karina always caters my appointments to what I need. She does excellent work and is very professional. It is always a TREAT to be seen by her. Thank you Karina!
Best massage ever! I’ve had back issues since I was six (scoliosis), and I have had my share of treatments … massage, acupuncture, chiropractic … even cupping. I have to say that I left feeling so much better — both physically and mentally — and immediately made an appointment for next week. After a week of entrepreneurial stress, I can’t think of a better way to wind up the week!
Feeling Like a New Person! I make it a point to see Karina for a massage on a regular basis. Not only is it great for my body, but it is equally good for my soul. Sometimes I go in feeling not so bad, but through the massage I realize how uptight and compressed my body really is. By the time I leave, I feel two inches taller and have a sense of calm. I recommend Karina for anyone that has a stressful life as well as any physical ailments.
Karina is an Authentic Healer. Karina’s knowledge, technique, and compassion are truly one of a kind. Her awareness and generous spirit combine to create a wonderful experience. I had my first session with her yesterday evening, and woke up this morning feeling more refreshed and energized than I have in months. Can’t wait for my next session!
One In A Million. I was diagnosed with Lymphedema due to radiation treatments, and was referred to Karina by my PT Therapist. Karina has a wealth of knowledge in lymphatic drainage, her technique is excellent and I’ve learned so much from her on managing my lymphedema at home. Not only is she professional, but also a very cary person and calms any fears I may have regarding my disease. She’s made my life easier and for that I’m every grateful! Always look forward to my next session!
I was referred to Karina by a friend. I have had an injury in my leg for more than twenty years that has created many issues including back pain. Karina has been able to work out scar tissue. I am walking better and the back issues are gone. Its was large and has taken some time but she has been able to do miracles. Karina is fantastic. I look forward to each visit.
My Little Vacation. An appointment with Karina is always a highlight in my week. I go in feeling beaten up from hours of gardening or moving furniture or carrying loads of groceries and laundry, and leave feeling relaxed and refreshed and a whole lot more flexible. Her techniques are unique and effective; she is caring and knowledgable and very good at what she does. Thanks Karina, I’m glad I found you.
Lifesaver! I was referred to Karina by my PT Therapist, and so very grateful for that referral!! Karina is wonderful, very knowlegeable, and so professional, yet very caring towards your situation. I feel better already! Looking forward to my next visit!
I should have come to Karina years ago. This is something that you will kick yourself for not committing to earlier. I believe that Karina is the most sincere caring and knowledgeable professional I have ever worked with. I highly recommend seeing her.
Excellent! Karina has helped eliminate the severe back and neck pain I’ve experienced for quite some time now! I love her knowledge on virtually anything I need to know. With my job as a cosmetologist, standing and strange positions/movements are inevitable. She has made it much more bearable! Thanks for everything!
New Lease On Life. I came to Bodyworx with severe Scoliosis and a badly swollen ankle. I had been released from physical therapy and just came to learn to relax. Wow, Karina made me feel like a whole new person! I left feeling wonderfully stretched and relaxed. She certainly is extremely knowledgeable about the body. I am looking forward to a long and rewarding relationship.
Happy Running Legs! Wow is the first thing that I said after I had my massage! I have never experienced anything like the service that I received at Bodyworx By Karina. I’m used to the typical massage but this was different! I am new to running and training for a half marathon so I really needed something to releive my aching body. I left feeling stretched and able to walk stairs without crying ouch every time I would take a step. Needless to say I have already booked my next appointment and can’t wait for another amazing session!
As a yoga teacher and athlete, I believe in the power of massage and body work. Since discovering Karina Rhode eight years ago, my belief in healing touch has compounded. Karina has helped my overcome allergies, injuries, and illnesses–her lymphatic work is the best I’ve ever experienced! I have referred my students and clients to her and would let no one else touch my fiance, or family. Her strength is undeniable, but what registers on the subtle layer is her softness and spirit. Karina has been an integral member of my healing team, and for that, I am ever grateful.
Is it possible to rate a massage above excellent? It is if you have had one by Karina. She gives you an individualized massage addressing your specific needs. Karina has spirit and energy, knowledge and compassion to create the best massage experience. She listens to your needs, and will suggest different techniques that she feels are right for you. She does wonderful stretches.
Two years ago I started feeling numbness in my toes. It was just annoying at first, but continued to spread across my toes and up into the arch of my foot. I went to my family doctor and he ordered testing which included blood tests and a trip to a specialist to make sure I did not have trouble with my knees. Nothing came back in that testing so I was then sent to a neurologist who tested the nerves in my arms and legs and everything looked good. The neurologist ordered an MRI done on my neck and lower back which also came back normal. By this time it had been 9 months and I was having trouble walking, especially any kind of stairs, and a couple of times I fell because my foot was numb. Then a friend of mine told me that she had gone to Karina Rhode and had a lymphatic massage. I had never heard of that kind of massage so I started to check it out with my doctor and on line. I decided to try it after hearing from my friend about her good results. At first at went to Karina two times a week. I had no idea how ³clogged² my whole body was. My sinuses were all messed up from an auto accident that happened 45 years ago. As Karina opened up my sinuses and started getting all of my lymphatic system flowing properly and soon had all the feeling in my foot again. I also regained feeling on areas of my face that I had not felt since the auto accident. I had forgotten what it was like to feel good when I got up every morning. Karina has given me back a very precious gift—HOPE FOR THE FUTURE!
A friend, mentor, and my massage therapist for nearly 10 years. Karina Rhode is the epitome of the professional massage therapist and body worker. She is extremely knowledgeable and is filled with integrity and sincerity. I have not only benefited from her massage and bodywork sessions, but also had her expertise in lymphatics which greatly aided me in recovering from 2 surgeries, one of being a very severe fracture.
Karina has a gift. Her massage and body work are most certainly relaxing, stress reducing and relieve aches and pains. But it goes beyond this. She has a healing touch. She tailors her approach and technique based on what my body tells her — which is often beyond what I can articulate or am even aware of.
Karina has been my massage therapist for more than 5 years. I have severe osteoarthritis, and I am an RN working 12 hr shifts on an inpatient hospice unit….long, hard, busy days. I began to see Karina after experiencing pain in my right groin and hip. She helped me become more flexible, and helped me experience less pain and muscle strain. I would see her after working, and she would be able to help relax my shoulders and back which is where I carry my stress. I was able to delay a hip replacement for 5 years, and I credit Karina’s expertise in allowing me to continue to move and work with very little discomfort. As my hip worsened, it became clear that I needed more help. She was able to use taping techniques to greatly reduce the pain during the time the tape was applied, and allowed me to buy some time until I was prepared to proceed with surgery. The surgery was incredibly successful, and I am pain free today. I would highly recommend her practice and her expertise and have referred numerous friends and colleagues to her.
After more that 10 years of experience with Karina, I unreservedly recommend her bodywork.. By knowing many different ways of working with the body, she is able to intuitively sense what my body needs and tailor her work accordingly. Karina’s knowledge and understanding of anatomy, physiology, the lymphatic system, the movement of muscles and tissues, as well as exercise and nutrition allow each session to be individually designed for what is going on that day. She is a valued part of my health care team.
With having Karina working with me, I have had OUTSTANDING RESULTS from using Lymphatic & muscle massage together. After having a heart attack 4 years ago, my circulation was a problem. After treatment, the swelling of my limbs is gone. I go every 2 weeks and when I miss, my body tells me. Can also be a great time for STRESS relief and time for you to relax. Sounds stupid but it works.
