Karen has changed my life! I started seeing her for weekly sessions a little over three years ago and the results were profound on every level. I have experienced a lot of body work, as a body worker myself, and her skills are particularly unique.
Even after just one session- I went in with very severe issues and came out not only with complete relief, but feeling more like myself than I had in years, and able to expand in my life and do things I didn't have the energy to do before.
Since abdominal massage goes way beyond working at a physical level but also provides a lot of spiritual and emotional healing, it is important to work with someone that you trust and has done a lot of that type of healing themselves. Karen creates an environment that feels safe enough to open to this type of deep work. Due to her depth of experience, she also knows how to adapt to your personal speed and needs at different moments within a session and over the long term. She has the ability to truly listen to the body and respond appropriately. She is very good at guiding you to find the healthy resources and smart choices that are necessary to break significant unhealthy patterns. She really guides YOU to find YOUR unique way.
Karen is a true healer, which is hard to come by these days. She is honest, humble, kind, direct, and very wise. Some people have found what they are meant to do and she is one of them.
Bess Caroline, Acupuncturist
Karen is very skilled at her work and genuinely caring, which is a great combination for the service she provides. She pays close attention and very importantly being non judgmental, takes mental note of what she needs to provide during session. I was surprised that she made a note of my need to be warmer amidst the vast information I was sharing and making sure to provide extra blankets without asking. Her session definitely helped me move past the issue that I saw her for. I thank her whole heartedly and recommend her (with great respect) for the service she provides to anyone who needs one.
“Over the past several years I have enjoyed and appreciated my therapeutic Chi Nei Tsang sessions with Karen. It is a time when I can relax, feel nurtured and cared for, and know that I will walk out feeling much better than when I walked in. These sessions not only feel good, I have become aware of my overall health and well-being improving. I have had long term benefits by getting in touch, while I am with Karen, with deep issues that have driven my life and have been able to let go of the underlying physical tensions and holding patterns. After I feel the blocked energy release, I notice a sense of freedom and expansiveness in my life. I feel grateful to Karen for her work!
Karen is highly intuitive and has an extremely sensitive touch. The work goes as deeply as you need. I felt an immediate impact on both my physical and emotional being.
Through doing Chi Nei Tsang with Karen I am learning more about the vast life inside my abdomen. I have been able to connect with and integrate parts of myself that had previously been outside the realm of my felt experience. Her gentle touch and compassionate presence make it a safe (and pleasurable) experience. I highly recommend this powerful work.

When I started my CNT session with Karen I was not very social and lacked confidence. With each session I became more outgoing and confident in myself. Also, now my thinking is much clearer and my mind is more focused." Norman Sowell, Real Estate Investor
"Karen is a gifted healer. She is intuitive in knowing what I need and working with me at my own pace. In my session I reached a deep core of healing at a cellular level. It was an amazing spiritual experience and now I feel like a new woman. I have referred many people to Karen and will continue to do so. Barbara Gordon, Motivator, Educator
I have received numerous CNT treatments from Karen Pearle over a 10 year period and I can vouch for the quality of her care, intuition and skill. The most remarkable treatment results were for severe abdominal cramps resulting from an IUD placed 7 days earlier that my body was rejecting. In an hour session, Karen helped my body relax and cease attempting to expel the IUD. The results were very impressive! I highly recommend Karen.

Karen is a wonderful resource for anyone in need of Chi Nei Tsang. I have had chronic pain and inflammation of my digestive system which led me to seeking a healer. Karen's ability to listen to her clients' and bring calm to the nervous system is absolutely superb. I cannot recommend her enough to those in need of a caring practitioner who is both wise and skilled. Thank you Karen, I look forward to our next session.
Karen is a wonderful healer, using the well-honed techniques of Chi Nei Tsang with her deep intuition. I appreciate working with Karen as she has a gentle touch, pays very close attention to things said and unsaid and offers lot of extra help and suggestions for things I can do at home such as particular herbs or teas. I have worked with a few Bay Area Chi Nei Tsang practitioners in the Bay Area and feel that Karen's subtle work--especially with digestion and emotions-- has made a great impact on me and my life.

I experienced a deep sense of safey and compassion in my session with Karen." Maureen Davison,
CNT Practitioner, Artist
Karen is a wonderfully gifted healer. After she works on me I feel transformed. It is not unusual that I leave her massage table with a sense of serene peace and joy. On a physical level she helps me be
restored and balanced.
Chi Nei Tsang is a powerful non-invasive healing modality and Karen is a master healer. I highly recommend her.
Eva Ruland, PhD, President, Evolve! Coaching
As one with an unique expertise in Traditional Chinese Medicine, I heartily recommend Karen. She is an expert in the art of Chi Nei Tsang, a deep energetic practice which clears congested energy within. Karen is highly sensitive and intuitive, a great healer!”

“Karen is an extremely knowledgeable practitioner who is very empathic and sensitive to her clients' physical and emotional issues while choosing the best and most effective course of treatment." Sue Wong , Accountant, Psychotherapist
My experience with Karen Pearle was quite beneficial. She was professional, and concerned for my psychospiritual development.The energy work was very helpful , Karen was innovative in her approach. I recommended a friend to her for treatment . This friend was pleased as well. The seven years that I worked with Karen were helpful in educating me about the medical applications of Chi Nei Tsang.
Brian McRae, Social Work, Consciousness Research
Karen has the gift of healing. Since seeing her for over a year, my pain has reduced a lot. I have had multiple abdominal surgeries and by going every week to have Chi Nei Tsang, I have been able to maintain my internal organ function that I otherwise wouldn't have. She also has a lot of insight on diet, herbs and overall health preventative tips. She is gentle, kind and a good listener and I feel incredibly lucky to have found her and i feel safe with her. I'm convinced i would have bowel obstructions and lot more pain if I didn't see her weekly. And her price is reasonable!
Karen's Chi Nei Tsang has done wonders for me. I came to her suffering from the effects of a very traumatic childhood. Her gentle and compassionate
nature helped me to relax so that I could more readily benefit from her massage treatment. My being able to "trust" was very important to me, since I had previously experienced post traumatic stress.
I don't know how Chi Nei Tsang works, but I do appreciate that the individual performing the treatment is a very important ingredient to its effectiveness. For me, it was more than just a mechanical procedure. It was the kind, gentle, compassionate, understanding person that performed the treatment that was very important.
I too have recommended Karen to friends and they
have benefited from her work.
Irv Starr, Counselor, Engineer
Chi Nei Tsang with Karen has improved my life. Karen's skillful hands and gentle nature put me at ease, and allow me to receive the benefits of our work together. I have visited Karen on and off for nearly ten years. There have been periods where I would see her weekly, sometimes bi-weeky, and sometimes I've taken breaks and then started up again. One thing I know for sure is that when I take the time to nurture my self and work with Karen, I feel better and I am more connected. I have recommend friends and family to Karen over the years. I am happy to recommend Karen to anyone interested in feeling better and being more connected to life.
