Karin began her bodywork studies at the Shiatsu Institute in San Francisco, completing a 180 hour certification program, in 1996. Alongside her Shiatsu studies, she found the bodywork practice of Breema. She studied Breema at the Breema Center in Oakland, CA, completing a practitioner certification. She moved to Washington in 1997, where she studied at the Bodymind Academy in Bellevue, WA, and completed a second six month Shiatsu course as well as general licensing program to practice Swedish massage, including: deep tissue, hydrotherapies, sports massage, pre-natal massage and more. She has attended a workshop on Acutonics Tuning Forks at the Northwest Institute of Oriental Medicine, in Seattle, putting them to use in her massage practice on specific points along Meridian lines where imbalance is indicated. She continues to add to her use of the modalities with further studies in Breema and Shamanism, and self-studies of yoga, meditation and breath work, with a focus on the Toltec teachings of the Five Agreements in her day to day life as a mother and healer.
