Meet Karl-Pain Eraser

If you’re the type of person who has the “you can’t hurt me” attitude, Karl would love to take that challenge!

Karl graduated from Carnegie Institute in 2016 and his passion is fixing people and when you are on his table, he considers the whole body, not just that nagging shoulder pain. He will spit out anatomy facts in the blink of an eye and loves to get to the root cause of the problem. If you’re looking to get out of the pain cave and also get some guidance on how to stay out of it, Karl is your savior. He loves treating conditions such as frozen shoulder, sciatica, thoracic outlet syndrome, tennis/golfers elbow and really anything that stops you in your tracks if you make a wrong move. In 2023 Karl switched gears a bit and became certified in Manual Lymphatic Drainage, learning the Vodder Method just like Rebecca did, so he balances his deep tissue work with light, gentle, soothing lymphatic work that is amazing as it’s own service or when blended in with his other work.

His laidback yet professional demeanor is what has kept clients coming back time and time again and he always loves talking all things movies/tv, food, music and everything in between. When he’s not chasing pain away he can be found spending time with family and friends, trying new recipes, reading and living his best life.

Karl’s specialties include:

  • Deep tissue massage
  • Chronic pain/injuries
  • Manual Lymphatic Drainage
  • Client education

On the intensity scale, Karl is our deepest tissue therapist with a 5/5 (or even 6!)
