Taking time out each day to relax and renew is essential to living well.

- Judith Hanson Lasater


Karen Harmon created Bodywork Unbound in October of 2013. Her massage career started out by working in her school's clinic, to renting a room at a few places, to working as an employee at a couple of locations and each venture was short lived, they never felt like home. She quickly desired to create a space where therapists could not only work, but flourish and expand their techniques without restraint and clients could feel cared for, treated and heard. She found our space as an open concrete slab, but had a vision. Since the first day, we have been growing our sanctuary and expanding our services to become the most diverse studio in the area. Our tribe is ever growing and we are constantly adding holistic approaches for pain relief, pain management and body and mind wellness.
