Karen is very knowledgable and makes you feel welcome from the start. I get tight shoulders and upper back from teaching Pole, having regular sports massages really helps ease off the tension and Karen has given me some exercises to help even out my shoulder flexibility (right one is much tighter and less flexible). The music and oil diffuser are very calming too. Highly recommend. 5* More...

I first contacted Karen because I was suffering from regular pain in my upper back/shoulder which I thought was related to a broken collar bone several years ago. Karen is kind, welcoming and very knowledgeable in her field. We have wonderful chats as she works her magic on my back, I feel very grateful to have found her!The pain in my back has subsided massively and I rarely get pain anymore. Thank you Karen More...

I first went to see Karen a couple of years ago for a sports massage. Doing a variety of sports combined with hours sitting at a computer and driving every day means I suffer with tightness in my back, neck and shoulders. Karen always manages to get rid of the knots in my shoulders and I come away feeling a lot more flexible! I also suffered with tightness in my IT band after training for a 30 mile charity run. Karen again managed to sort the issue for me whilst also giving me stretches to do and advising me on a gradual training regime to get back into running without making the injury worse. As well as being knowledgeable Karen is also very friendly and professional with a great sense of humour! Highly recommend Karen for helping with injuries or just for a general sports massage.

For 30+ years I have suffered with back/neck pain and stiffness. I have seen several physios who have eased the problems but only for a few months resulting in me continually needing more treatment as the pain increased. I was fortunate enough to be introduced to Karen by my daughter and went to see her because of pain and stiffness in my neck and shoulders which kept me awake at night. Also my back was very still first thing in the morning preventing me from bending down properly. Karen encouraged me to attend Yoga classes which in conjunction with her regular treatments have proved immensely effective. Due to now being pain free and the tightness/tension in my body now relieved, I attend Yoga, netball and have taken up jogging. I cannot recommend Karen enough and only wish I had found her much sooner. (6 members of my family have been treated by Karen). She is very professional, helpful and friendly. Always ready to go the extra mile to help and offers excellent advice. I always leave Karen feeling positive and pain free. More...

l've been to see Karen at MFG Massage Therapy in Normanton today. Anyone local, l cannot recommend this lady enough. She certainly knows her stuff. She's managed to un-knot my back and neck, which has been a long standing problem. Apparently "today is just to see what's going on". So l shall be taking a wooden spoon to bite on next time, but my god, it's worth it. l feel amazing. Sore, but amazing. More...

I suffer from a long standing history of severe lower back pain following two car accidents in the past. I went to see Karen after reading the amazing reviews and recommendations online. I have pain radiating from my lower back into my hips and groin. When I came to see her i was unsteady on my feet, I was walking with a stagnant, unbalanced gait and I was falling all over the place.It has taken several months but I am able to walk better, my balance is better and my pain more stable. Working with Karen is a life changing opportunity not a short fix. She expects all her patients to work with her to better their health. Karen is straight forward, hardworking, has a great sense of humour and is very honest. She uses a holistic approach to my care. Starting from a food diary, exercise diary to recommending an osteopath to optimise my care with her and giving exercises/stretches to do. The latter she describes, shows and then sees you perform, whilst giving advice to improve.I like her brutal honesty and the huge efforts she goes to trying different things to help better my pain. Her eye for detail and care is refreshing. Since seeing Karen I'm walking better, I've lost over a stone in weight and generally feel better in myself. I recommend Karen wholeheartedly and unreservedly. She has improved my quality of life.PS:To those people who have a car - there is a spot to park off the street on her drive. Great location central to Normanton. More...

I've been having physiotherapy with Karen for about 4 months now, and within that short time frame she has done an amazing job! I'm sorry this is going to be a long review but I know a lot of people will relate to my story and plus I found Karen through google and decided to go for her because she had great reviews therefore I am one of the testaments that this reviews are indeed a reflection of her great work. My problems started 2-3 years ago, first it was just plantar pains, I'm on my feet all day and work strenuous job so thought nothing of it. Then the shooting pains on the soles of my foot went up to my lower back - that's when the sleepless nights started. Still I thought it was just the mattress or positioning so bought a good mattress and more pillows but my lower back pains did not go away to the point that even sitting and standing it still hurts. I'm young and I work in healthcare and as they say people in healthcare are the worst patients. My lower back pains with up to my mid-back, I wasn't able to stand, left my arms and do the dishes! I still didn't seek help until my shoulder had gone so bad that I can't put my jacket on or take my shirt off without any help. I was in max doses of pain killers. I sought help when the pain killers wasn't helping me anymore. Went to see one of our best specialist consultant and physio, had MRI and ct scans all they found were inflammations on my shoulder and one of the end of my clavicle was bigger than the other, he gave me a really long time but it was sort of like an arthritis and something that I just have to live on with. The physio has given me some exercises and off I go- discharged! I felt so hopeless and disappointed, I don't wanna live with pain and take tablets- its horrible! There's got to be more to it!This is when I turned to Karen, on our first initial consult, she knew exactly what was going on. She knew exactly which areas to target and what to do, I'm just amazed how she does it! With Therapy, manual manipulation, stretching and massage; my bad back and contracted shoulders slowly ease and I manage to do my exercise little by little building my strength back. I must say the start of my therapy was very hard! - like everything is! But with Karen's help I just persevered, I've literally put on tears and sweat every stretch and exercise I did. - but it was all worth it in the end!! Now I'm not taking any pain killers at all and sleeping very well, I'm doing the dishes, and most importantly I am able to put on take off clothes without any help and put my coat on without grimacing in pain!!! I am still under Karen's care, I know rehabilitation is a long process and my shoulder is still not perfect and I still have a long way to go, but hey I'm just happy not to be in pain and feeling like my self again!!Karen is very professional with vast knowledge on her field. She had help me in a lot ways, not only on my physical problems/pains but also emotionally. People don't realise how soul destroying pain is, I felt horrible and wasn't myself! I found a confidant through Karen and I highly recommend her!!For those reading my review and on the same boat as me, please please please seek Karen's help coz my only regret was, I should have done it sooner. At first I thought £40 was too much to fork out for a session but this is the best spend I've done for myself it is all worth it! if we think about it we've spend more on shoes, bags and other material things but nothing compares as to how important your body/health is.

I do a lot of OCR events. (Obstacle course/Mud races like Tough Mudder and Total warrior etc.)

I sometimes suffered with muscle fatigue and cramps during the races, but now i have pre race massages a couple of days before the events and it has done me great.

Also I now have post race sports massages as well and they have worked brilliantly to speed up my recovery time so i can start training properly again after a couple of days instead of a week or so.

Karen is very knowledgeable and I recommend her services.

I approached Karen for sports massage to see if she could help with the muscle tightness I regularly experience. I have a desk job, and each day suffer from shoulder and neck pain. I also perform high intensity exercise several times a week which leads to muscle soreness. Karen's treatments have led to a significant reduction in the pain I experience, and have also greatly improved my mobility and flexibility. She had also been able to suggest specific exercises that I can perform between treatments to help further. I highly recommend Karen for sports massage. More...
