In business since 1998, Karen Ayres Young has two licenses with the "State of Ohio Medical Board", as a Licensed Practical Nurse and a Licensed Massage Therapist. After working as a nurse for over 10 years, Karen decided to change career paths and become a Licensed Massage Therapist. She experienced first hand many people taking prescription pain medications for chronic ailments without much relief. At that time she realized that massage could be more effective without the side effects of pharmaceuticals, and in acute situations, help relieve the cause of the problem not just mask the symptoms. With over 29 years experience in the medical field, she is dedicated to helping individuals with preventative healthcare and pain management.
