Karen Kramer RN MA HNC QTTT NCCPT is a certified holistic nurse (HNC) who looked into various modalities for her own healing. Finding this journey so successful, she began her training to guide others to wellness. She uses techniques from many classes that include craniosacral therapy, somatoemotional release, bioequatic exploration, brain, and immune response. She has completed advanced and the pediatric CST and enjoys working with children. Karen is a teaching assistant for Upledger classes and is in the process of certification for both techniques and teaching assistant. She has externed in the Upledger clinic and received a session by Dr. Upledger in a demonstration during one of his classes.

Finding Active Isolated Stretching to be so successful in resolving difficult problems she added this to her therapies and has taken the advanced course from Aaron Mattes,the founder.


"After my surgery I did not feel that the healing actually started until after a session by Karen." E.S. RN

"Until I had a mild migraine I did not realize that I had not had any for a whole year since a session." P.C. RN

"CranioSacral therapy with Karen Kramer is transformative. Let me describe what the experience is like for me. I started out with hour sessions but found it went by too fast and then would do 1.5 hours"

'While being worked on, I relax and enter into a sacred state of peacefulness, there is gentle music playing, the biomat is warm and I feel at such an indescribable peacefulness while Karen works her magic. I don't necessarily understand how it works. And that is not so important to me as the tranquility I feel. My body, mind and spirit almost feel to be floating through thoughts and gentle awareness in a half dream state. I have insights and answers come clearly straight to my mind as if connected to the spirit of the universe. When her work is complete, I leave the session transformed into contented serenity and everything seems right. It is a priceless luxury to have the experience and if so lucky to have it on a regular basis, then one is blessed. Everyone should be so lucky to have this experience. So be it." Truly, Anna, LMFT, LADC
