Welcome to Karen Diamond
I work from my studio in Felixstowe, offering all types of massage including aromatherapy, deep tissue massage, hot stone massage, Indian Head massage, sports massage, fascial release, myofascial release, swedish body massage and also offer beauty therapy, hopi ear candling and reflexology. I had also been endorsed and contracted by the NHS, working with cancer patients at Ipswich Hospital for eight years, offering complementary therapies, at The John Levay Centre, Woolverstone Wing, through the Cancer Campaign in Suffolk.
I have also worked with dancers from the Royal Ballet, local sports clubs, many fitness instructors, sportsmen/women in all areas of sport and members of the public not involved in sport, who are either injured or in pain, have other health issues or would just like a relaxing treatment.
I am also a member of the International Federation of Health and Beauty Therapists, International Council of Health, Fitness and Sports Therapists and International Council of Holistic Therapists.
As a sports massage therapist and complementary health practitioner, my aim is to treat the root of your problem, rather than just the manifesting symptom, by looking at lifestyle, medical history, occupational issues, behaviour patterns etc. All treatments are preceded by a detailed consultation, followed by a bespoke treatment plan and can be used safely in a sporting/non sporting context.
I believe optimum health can be achieved and maintained by a healthy diet, regular exercise, moderating excesses, reducing stress and having a good work/life balance. Once good health is achieved the need for conventional medicine can be reduced/eliminated.
It is important to remember complementary therapy is not a replacement for medicine or diagnostic in any way, however it can work hand in hand with conventional treatments.
