Meet the Therapists
Karen Dickson, LMT, CPMT, CIMT
I am an experienced massage therapist located in Redmond, WA. I have been in practice since 2005. My experience includes a range of clients, from professional football players and body builders to infants and mothers-to-be. I believe that getting regular massage and eating well can increase the quality of your life and your health.
I graduated from Guilford Technical Community College in Greensboro, NC with a certificate in massage therapy. After working with clients of all ages, I furthered my education to specialize in pediatric massage therapy. I am certified by the Liddle Kidz Foundation, the premier organization for infant and massage professionals, and work as a Certified Infant Massage Teacher (CIMT) and Certified Pediatric Massage Therapist (CPMT). I also work in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU),with pediatric oncology patients and children on the Autism spectrum and suffering from cancer.
In 2012, I graduated from the Nutritional Therapy Association with a certificate in Nutritional Therapy. I enjoy cooking and the challenge of making healthy food delicious for everyone!
In addition, I am currently training for power lifting competitions and functional fitness.
Nick Buddle, LMT, LAc
I am a Certified Shiatsu Massage Therapist but my bodywork incorporates many different styles, such as trigger point therapy, sports massage, deep tissue, muscle energy techniques. I have a strong knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics, which is valuable in diagnosis and treatment as well as communication with clients and other practitioners.
In addition to acupuncture and bodywork, I regularly use cupping, moxa, gua sha, and electrical stimulation and I am a certified Professional Laser Therapist with the BioFlex Laser Therapy system. I also have experience with facial rejuvenation treatments, utilizing facial needling, facial cupping, facial gua sha, and micro-current stimulation.
Over the years, I have had the privilege of working in many different clinic settings along side very talented practitioners. All of these opportunities have exposed me to a variety of patients and I feel comfortable treating a diverse range of conditions, from acute and chronic pain to pregnancy and more complicated conditions. I love meeting different clients and connecting with them, and caring for their needs.
