What does KarMer Therapies offer?


An Acupuncturist will insert very fine needles into a persons body with the aim of balancing their energy. It can help boost wellbeing and may cure some illnesses. Conditions it is used for include specific pain such as migraines or back and musculo-skeletal pain as well as being beneficial in treating anxiety, insomnia and menopause.

Combined Therapy

Karen offers both treatments individually or in some cases will create an integrated treatment plan combining the two.


Shiatsu massage therapy uses the fingers, thumbs and palm to apply pressure to various areas of the body’s surface to help heal common conditions and correct any inbalances occurring in the body. Pressure applied to points on the body promotes energy flow as well as being a deeply relaxing experience. Shiatsu helps to treat pain, relieve stress, and contributes to overall good health and wellbeing.
