As King County numbers continue to be quite high, Massage Doctor is limiting the number of clients seen. We are prioritizing clients who have a doctor's referral that says treatment is urgent. We do not anticipate being able to fully reopen until later this spring.
Karim is fully vaccinated (both doses of Moderna vaccine) and encourages you to get vaccinated as soon as possible.
Appointments will be scheduled by phone -- online scheduling will be available later. Click here to see our clinic's new policies.
Our Issaquah location will not reopen at this time. We are continuing to evaluate options for eastside and in-home/outcall services.

Massage helps your body adjust to the experience of growing a healthy baby.
After your little one's arrival, massage helps get your body back into shape to be a healthy mom.
Karim helps clients with proper body mechanics, rehabilitative treatments, chronic health conditions, and physical disabilities.
I first came to Karim 3 years ago almost on my hands and knees as a result of a hamstring injury that kept haunting me. Karim was literally my last resort in helping me to overcome this nagging strain. I had tried many things including physical therapy, foam rolling, stretching, resting, and icing. While working with Karim through a few sessions, the hamstring miraculously healed to full strength.
I also went through a severe bike accident in having 8 fractures on my arm. Again, through Karim’s miracle work, I have regained full range of motion in my shoulder and elbow without any further complications.
Since those challenging times during 2014-2016, I qualified for the Boston Marathon and finished my first Ironman Ultra distance Triathlon by swimming, biking, and running... 140.6 miles.
Karim has become a good friend of mine. He is so much more than a massage therapist, he truly understands the medical physiology of the human body and helping you to return to full health physically and mentally.
