Moving

Heart · Mind · Body · Soul

Made2Move speaks to simplifying the art and science of optimal health. I seek to make it practical and applicable, as we Move through life: heart, mind, body and soul.

Integrating the pieces

Wholistic Perspective

I LOVE movement. I especially love working with the movement of the heart, mind, and soul together with the body. As a doctor of physical therapy, I focus not just on physical movement; I also teach a unique perspective of how to move through life with purpose and direction. I untangle underlying physical, mental, and emotional “restrictions.” By focusing on the individual and encouraging the integration of mind and body, I champion a different kind of Healthcare.

What is Possible

Hope and better health are always possible.

I connect the dots: your health is multi-faceted, so there is always something that can be improved. And anyone who says otherwise is probably selling you something, most likely in the form of a pill.

Back Pain, Prayer and Treating a Loved One

Back Pain, Prayer and Treating a Loved One

There are good reasons medical professionals don’t treat those closest to them. Ego, relational dynamics, and just deep caring can obscure the objectivity of both provider and loved one, especially the more that is at stake. As you have learned by now, I care very...

The Tension between Frustration and Gratitude

The Tension between Frustration and Gratitude

With the holidays past, and a new year rolling along, thoughts on gratitude are not really in season. Still, my thoughts linger there, especially since I had a recent little “aha” moment: I learned it is impossible to be frustrated while simultaneously being grateful....

When Things Break…Healing Can Happen

When Things Break…Healing Can Happen

Sitting on the living room sofa, I heard the crash in the kitchen. Something was now in a million little pieces.  “That didn’t sound good,” I teased my husband. “I’m sorry, and it’s irreparable too,” John said remorsefully. And he would know, as he is the master of...

Better Conversations: Pontificating or Being a Pontoon

At the end of the evening, I asked John “So I ‘pontificate'?”, repeating back the word he had used with our friends earlier in the evening.  He described a recent conversation to them that we'd had with some folks, who had shared their opinions on vaccinations and the...

A Little Bit about Me (Cuz You Asked)

I was asked to share more about myself. “But what do you love?  What are you like? Please share that!” Oh, golly. I love lots. 😀 I love laughing. Especially the kind where you’re doubled over, or the tears are streaming down your face. And you’re gasping for air....

Physical Pain: Who to Turn to?

Physical Pain: Who to Turn to?

Denise’s sharp leg pain, which was produced by a nerve in her low back, was 100% improved from the previous week. Yet, she was fuming. But not at me.  She was frustrated with her medical doctor. “I wish he had sent me to you first.”  This was a dramatic change of tune...

Life Success Stories

Karen teaches as she heals! She gives you a whole new outlook on your health, is personable, takes her time in getting to know your health issues. She is a brilliant.

Susan Swanson

Karen is the best physical therapist I have found. She provided a deeper level of personalized care than I had experienced elsewhere while also providing me the education/tools to continue my progress at home. The fine details and assistance from Karen made all the difference for me. Truly a game changer.

Jeran Ulrich

I love her holistic approach. She not only took the time to listen and ask questions to discover exactly what was going on with my shoulder issues, but also took the time to get to know what was going on in my life, and connected the two.

Val L

Karen has a healing gift! She listens compassionately, and identified the very root of the problem.

Meg C

As an outdoor athlete, I can attest to her dedication to her practice,  genuine commitment to seeing her patients strong and healthy. She is thoughtful, attentive, communicative, and the definition of a compassionate expert. I cannot recommend her enough.

Aveen Ver Ploeg

Karen is hands down amazing. Very professional, kind, and intelligent. She knows exactly what she’s doing and someone I would highly recommend.

David Hoss

Karen has a much deeper approach to treatment; she teaches about how pain works in my brain, as well as how to integrate the mind with the body: changing unhealthy eating, sleeping, and thinking habits in my life. I very highly recommend her to everybody who wants to live an all around healthier life with less pain!
