Karen Bauman personally experienced the profound depth of healing that comes through therapeutic relationships and bodywork that takes the whole person into account. Transitioning from a career as a college professor, she chose to complete 1000 hours of training in neuromuscular therapy followed by over 400 hours of advanced training in Myofascial Release, as taught by the foremost authority John F. Barnes. Since graduating in 2006, Karen has maintained a private practice as the owner of Release in Motion, helping clients gain relief from acute and chronic pain. As a former college professor, Karen enjoys educating clients with life-long skills for actively healing themselves. Karen also is a frequent lecturer on the unique role of fascia in the healing process and how Myofascial Release compliments other therapeutic modalities to accelerate results. Karen is a professional member of the American Massage Therapy Association and served on the board of the California chapter for 2 years.
