Karina (Kari) Lake, Licensed Massage Therapist, is a Eugene native and graduate of the Lane Community College Massage program. She joined the Staszak team in 2016 and is thrilled to be a part of this talented, compassionate group of health professionals. In addition to a solid background in Swedish and deep tissue massage, her training includes prenatal, pediatric, and oncology massage. She particularly loves caring for patients who have never received a massage before or are unsure if massage is right for them. Her goal is to have every patient walk out the door feeling relaxed and reconnected with their body. She doesn’t consider herself to be a healing practitioner; rather, she considers manual therapy to be the key that unlocks the healing potential within our own bodies.
In her free time, Kari stays active by running the Ridgeline Trail in the south hills, lifting weights, taking the occasional group dance or Zumba class, and hiking with her husband and sons.
