Karen Harrington is a natural intuitive healer who has been following her healing path since childhood when she would soothe the aches and pains of family members and friends.  She lets her fingers be her guides when she works at unraveling the tight knots in the muscles.  Her path has led her to study a variety of healing arts including Reiki. 

Karen is a third degree Reiki master.Everything alive contains Ki and radiates it.   The living body radiates warmth and energy.  It is the bio-magnetic energy of the aura. In Japanese this energy is called Ki.  Reiki is a laying on of hands touch healing system from Japan based on ancient sacred sanskrit symbols.  Reiki heals the body, mind and spirit.    

After studying Reiki, Karen attended the Santa Monica School of Massage, graduating in 1987.

Upon moving to Washington, she studied massage at Port Townsend School of Massage and she has been licensed in the State of Washington since 2003.
Karen has a wide variety of skills and tools that she brings to her massage practice at Island Fitness.  Her tools include the Kansa Wand, an ayurvedic massage tool that was first made in the Bronze Age approx. 5,000 years ago.  It's made from sacred metal alloy of copper, tin and zinc.  This blend of metals is known as a healing metal which has a powerful effect on the body's subtle energies. The high electrical conductivity of the metal blend works on the subtle electrical system of  the body that runs in the meridians and chakras, having a balancing and revitalizing effect by amplifying the body's natural bio-electrical network.
