A client's success story...

Steve Ironman Finish

    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 have qualified for the Boston Marathon and just 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.
