Stillpoint Welcomes an Amazing new Massage Therapist

Karen Waters, RN, CMT

It gives me great pleasure to introduce to you Karen Waters. Karen moved her practice to the Winooski Stillpoint office on May 1st.  She has been here a month now and I could not be more thrilled.

Karen is massage therapist specializing in Trigger Point Therapy. Trigger Point Therapy focuses on releasing the small contraction “knots” (called trigger points) which develop in muscle tissue when it is injured or overworked.  The most common causes of trigger points are repetitive motion, trauma or tension caused by stress.  These small “knots” tighten the muscle, which decreases blood flow, pulls on tendons and causes local or referred pain.  Ultimately mobility is decreased and nerves can become impinged causing numbness and tingling.

Karen started her practice in 2000 as a general massage therapist.  In 2004, the nucleus of her life switched to raising a family.  When she came back to her massage practice in 2007, she decided to focus specifically on Trigger Point Therapy.  Karen is also a practicing nursing in Cardiothoracic & Vascular Surgery at Fletcher Allen Health Care for the last twenty years.

A personal statement from Karen: “Working as a nurse, a massage therapist, and in my everyday life, I encounter people with chronic and/or acute pain.  Some may have been told that they need surgery, some are on pain medications, and some are just “dealing with the pain”. By using Trigger point therapy and relaxation massage, I experience joy helping people decrease and/or eliminate their pain, relax their body, mind, and spirit, and thus increase their quality of life. I enjoy working with people of all ages and have a special place in my heart for elders.”

I have had the absolute pleasure of receiving Karen’s work and she is good! I do not say that lightly.  As you know I am very particular in the bodywork I receive and Karen exceeded my expectations.  Please join me in welcoming Karen to Stillpoint.

Karen will be in the Winooski office on Mondays (9a-4p), Thursday (6-9p), Fridays (6-9p) and occasional Saturdays.  Please do not hesitate to contact her for an appointment.  karenjnt@gmavt.net or 802-497-7632
