Karin Boewer, Massage Therapist

Clinical Interests:

  • Orthopedics using medical massage
  • Somatic therapy
  • Myofascial pain treatment also known as myofascial release.

  • Background:
    Karin Boewer earned her degree in massage therapy from the Healing Arts Center, St. Louis, Missouri.  In 2010, Karin completed her Masters in Medical Massage program in Florida, and is one of the few medical massage practitioners in the country.

    Karin has been in private practice for 10 years and joined Barnes Jewish West County Hospital-STAR in 2015. She is committed to bringing excellence in her work and making a difference in the lives of her patients.

    Karin specializes in medial massage, somatic therapy and myofascial release techniques, a therapy that involves the soft tissue fascia for the treatment of skeletal muscle immobility and pain. Myofascial release relaxes contracted fascia and muscles, improves blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulates the stretch reflex in muscles. Karin directed the massage therapy program for a health care college and has lectured on the benefits of medical massage and massage for pain management.
