Karla was born and raised in Honduras with her family of eleven siblings and single mother, who struggled to provide their basic needs after the passing of her father. Yet, this struggle gave Karla a hopeful attitude that life was full of opportunities, and that one day she would be able to help others in her community.

 

Before immigrating to the U.S., Karla served in the Green Corps and held a position as a bank secretary. Her first job in the U.S. was working as a cocktail waitress in cruises, where she visited countries in South Africa, Europe, and the Middle East. During her time there, Karla met individuals of various origins and walks of life, which inspired her to pursue a career that could truly make a difference.

 

A few years later, Karla learned about massage therapy while working at the Four Seasons Hotel, where she gained recognition as employee of the year for two of the three years she was there. After witnessing the spa services they offered, Karla was immediately drawn toward the practice of massage therapy, fitness and wellness, and felt her calling was to become a massage therapist.

 

Karla graduated from the Northern Virginia School of Therapeutic Massage in 2001 and has been practicing massage therapy for 18 years. Prior to opening her own business, Karla worked with day spas and chiropractors, helping clients with conditions such as chronic pain, fibromyalgia, diabetes, heart disease, sleep apnea, post-operation, and general stress. Through her years of experience, Karla honed her techniques in body + skin care and developed a true passion for therapeutic services. As a practitioner and business owner, Karla strives to continue learning approaches that help with healing and achieving overall wellness.

 

With this, Karla hopes to continue her efforts to help others through the services provided at her spa and welcomes everyone to join us as we seek all-embracing wellness in the mind, body, and spirit.

 

A message from Karla: “Hi everyone, thank you so much for the opportunity to serve you and give you the best version of myself. I wholeheartedly love what I do and hope it is conveyed through your experience here. My goal is for you to receive a touch of wellness with your every visit, no matter what you are facing or your current condition. I look forward to meeting you, and helping you live your best life!”

 

With gratitude,

 

— Karla
