Karen Norwood

As the embodiment whisperer of the Intensive Recovery Healing team, I am a licensed massage therapist and specialize in trauma-informed bodywork including Somatic Experiencing. Primarily working with chronic pain sufferers, I noticed that massage helped but wasn’t fixing the root cause. Through various trainings including Somatic Experiencing, I learned healing trauma stored in the body has been the missing link in wellness.

This includes orthopedic massage for common injuries, cervical, low back, knees with Ben Benjamin; myoskeletal alignment techniques with Erik Dalton; massage for cancer patients; deep massage for psoas; massage cupping; Qi Gong; work with the pelvis: structure, power, posture and trauma; trauma massage, and trauma-sensitive yoga.
