Catering to client needs from relaxation to rehabilitation, a bodywork session is unlike any other massage session. Every session is custom designed to meet each client's unique needs. Whether you need to simply unwind or you need to get back on your feet as soon as possible following an injury or a surgery, BodyWorx by Karina can help.
Karina S. Rhode, BCTMB, CMT, ACSM-PT “I love the changes that can be made when you understand how the body works. In my opinion, the best bodywork begins with a solid background in the science of the human body physically & chemically.” To that end, she continues to study anatomy, physiology & nutrition in depth in order to fully understand the intricacies of how the body functions.
After obtaining her bodywork certificate from Health Enrichment Center, Karina continued her studies obtaining a degree in Medical Massage from Indiana College of Bodywork Modalities. Adjunct studies have included Myofacial/Deep Tissue rehabilitative techniques, Lymphedema certification, Visceral Manipulation, Thai Massage, & Active Release Techniques modalities. She also holds a personal trainer certification through the American College of Sports Medicine. Since starting her practice back in ‘96, she has blended these skills into a unique and highly effective approach to wellness/performance enhancement, trauma, repetitive use & injury rehabilitation.
Karina has received over 5000 hours of bodywork education via independent study, state and nationally regulated programs, is an Indiana licensed practitioner, Nationally Certified Massage & Bodywork Therapist, and a member of Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals. She has taught massage therapy as a primary instructor and is a certified teaching assistant and lecture presenter for the Lymphatic Drainage Curriculum through The Upledger Institute.
