You want to be the best mom you can be, an amazing partner, or spectacular at your job, but you’re constantly stressed, overwhelmed with the day-to-day responsibilities of life, just trying to get through the day.
Over the years working as a massage therapist (and as a human actually dealing with stress), I’ve noticed just how many folks are constantly stressed out, exhausted, just dragging themselves through their days.
It’s like stress is just who you are.
You think you just need to get rid of that horrible boss, finish that huge project, or just make it to Friday and then you’ll live the good life.
And, sure, sometimes you do something nice for yourself, like get a massage!
And you feel amazing afterwards. Fully present in your body.
But, then you go back out to “the real world” and you check your email and you start thinking about all the things you need to get done today. And the next time you actually make time for you, that dull ache between your shoulder blades has become a sharp pain, it seems like you always have a headache, and you’re irritable, snapping at your kids, your partner, and everyone around you.
Massage is great, but even if you come see me once a week, you still spend another 167 hours in your body each week. What you do during that time matters.
Most of us put off taking care of ourselves even though we KNOW we need to do it because it feels self-indulgent.
Constantly putting yourself and your needs last leads to burnout. And when you run yourself ragged you can’t be your best.
I’m Karyn Claflin and I’m not your typical massage therapist. I help folks like you who are feeling weighed down by their stress to feel free again.
This cycle that I see happening over and over again with many of you, is why I’m continually learning more and upgrading my skills studying massage therapy, but also yoga, aromatherapy and BodyMind Coaching. I’m not content to just relieve the tension that stress has created in your body and then send you home to continue the same actions that led to the tension.
I want better for you. I want you to have that just-had-a-massage feeling everyday.
Because when you’re exhausted, overwhelmed with the day-to-day responsibilities of life, just trying to get through the day, you can’t be your best.
And I truly believe the world needs you to be your best. We need you to show up and be the most amazing version of you — not just another exhausted person dragging yourself through life.
Because when you are present for your life and doing your best, you inspire others, you lift them up. And, I don’t know about you, but that’s the world I want to live in. Not the one, where it seems like most people are just dragging themselves through life.
If that’s you, if you want to be your best, but stress is getting in the way, I’ve designed Integrative Wellness Sessions and a program of support to help you get out of your head and into your body so you can live your life more fully.
The thing is, if you’re still reading, you know you need to take better care of yourself. But if you’re ready to actually claim that and make it your reality, the best way to get started is with a Breakthrough Session.
During this no-cost phone session, we’ll talk about how stress is showing up for you, what’s working and what’s not, and your goals. If I feel like I can help you, we can talk about how we can work together toward your goals. If not, I’ll do my best to point you in the direction of someone who can!
What folks are saying..
I have had many massages at different places over the years but Ashiatsu with Karyn is by far the best! I love that she always asks if there is any way she needs to customize my massages for current issues. As a gift, I sent my son and daughter-in-law (young parents) to her for some needed stress relief and they loved it too! Dana P
I’ve been coming here for almost 2 years and every single time, they’ve been extremely professional, kind, accommodating, and I leave feeling 100% better. Totally recommend. Jacob L
I received a gift certificate for a massage before my wedding and it was one of the best gifts! I’ve been going to Karyn for almost 2 years now and I love every visit. She has helped me through wedding stresses and pregnancy pains, I can’t recommend her enough! Gillian C
I’ve been scheduling my appointments with Karyn for an ashiatsu-massage for over a year and a half. Karyn shows her commitment to care by asking if there are trouble areas or if I’ve been experiencing pains/muscles that may need extra focus. She confirms the room temperature settings are comfortable with me, asks if I need water, etc. I am fully able to relax in the studio and emerge feeling truly amazing.
Originally I started with a 60 minute appointment but after trying the longer session, I will only be booking 90 minutes for future appointments. Elizabeth E
