Real Results. Real Relief.
A Healing Touch Medical Massage won’t give you an average massage. Versus a more traditional full-body massage, our massages focus on specific areas of the body that are in need of healing or rehabilitation, as well as core muscles, balance, and gate. So if you have an injury, chronic pain, or another ailment, we’re here to help.

Meet Karen Payne-Hill
With more than 16 years as a Licensed Massage Practitioners, Karen Payne-Hill comes with more experience, versatility, and training than many massage practitioners.
Her career began when she started searching for ways to help her ill grandmother. Through this difficult circumstance, Karen began to appreciate the healing powers of the hands and began her intensive education and advanced training in order to become one of Northern Kentucky’s top licensed massage practitioners.
Karen completed a 630-hour professional program in order to become a master massage therapist and is versed in orthopedic, Swedish, maternity, geriatric, and medical massage techniques. She also continued and acquired skills in lymphatic drainage, Myoskeletal Alignment Technique, and more than 20 types of deep tissue massage techniques.
Perhaps most importantly, Karen has completed Dr. Frank L. Jarrell’s advanced training in Spinal Reflex Analysis (SRA). SRA is a non-invasive, pain-free method to reduces chronic pain, increase range of motion, restore balance and power, and ease complications of serious disease conditions within the body.
Welcome Nik Atkins to the practice.

- Those who participate in competitive sports
- Those who sit or stand for long periods of time
- Pain and stiffness due to poor posture
What’s the Difference?
What’s the difference between medical massage and spa massage?
There is a common misconception that a massage is just a massage. But in fact, there are many different techniques and methodologies. While there is always someone applying pressure to your body, a medical massage differs from most styles in a few key ways.
Medical massage is outcome-based, meaning that while stress relief and relaxation are important, medical need is the primary focus of the massage. It is often used to manage pain, reduce inflammation, improve circulation, relieve nerve compression, improve digestion, increase flexibility, and/or treat other health care concerns.
Spa massages and medical massages may feel similar, but spa massages likely focus on relaxation only. A medical massage therapist will use a broader set of therapies for muscle health and long-term recovery.
