She is fun, friendly and professional with an approachable manner that can help put even the most nervous client at ease.

Karen is dedicated to assisting her clients reach their personal, individual massage goals. Using different massage techniques, Karen can help you learn to take care of your bodies. Even if you have not paid your muscles much attention before now, Karen will show you how. It’s not too late! She will discuss postural techniques and gently exercises you can do to really benefit from your massage.
New Dawn Therapies is run mainly from her own home in Westbourne Drive, Hardwicke, where Karen has a room dedicated to massage treatments. She uses products that have not been tested on animals and are vegan friendly. Karen is as mindful about what she uses on her clients bodies as she is on her own.
New dawn Therapies also offers a mobile service twice a week for customers who may be limited on time to travel to Karen’s home, or who’s mobility restricts them from doing so.
At New Dawn Therapies, it really is all about the massage and the benefits massage can have on the body. Karen is interested in supporting clients with pain related conditions such as fibromyalgia and sciatica, and has a special interest in people with back and hip issues to ensure mobility and stability.
It’s also worth mentioning that part of New Dawn Therapies “ Meet and Greet” team is a dog, Murphy. He has a few rules of his own when you visit. Before you can have your treatment he insists he gets a fuss and a mini massage. He will insist on not letting you walk past him until this vital act has been carried out. He will also ensure that before you leave you do exactly the same again, and if you’re lucky he may let you leave without running off with your shoes or nuzzling your ear as you put your shoes back on. (Murphy insisted that I added this!)
