Touch of bliss.
Sustain sound body, heart, and mind through potent, compassionate, and intelligent human touch. One of the oldest therapeutic practices in the world, massage works in conjunction with our natural ability to remedy imbalances and heal ourselves, vis medicatrix naturae (“the healing power of nature”). Maintain vibrant health and well-being, boosting the immune system, releasing tension, reducing pain, and promoting healing.
MASSAGE THERAPY SESSIONS
All Lumière massage treatments include:
- A brief conversation about your overall well-being, conditions, intentions, and preferences.
- 60 to 90 minutes of hands-on massage customized for you given your particular needs.
- 100% certified organic or wildcrafted oils and lotions, as desired
- Massage table dressed and heated for your personal comfort

Available by Appointment
All sessions are designed to offer deep rest, relief, and relaxation. My priority is creating the optimal conditions for you to receive what you need without rushing. I offer spacious 90-minute sessions for those who love the luxury of lingering, as well as efficient 60-minute sessions for those seeking more focused treatments.
Please keep in mind that I only work with a limited number of seriously awesome, committed clients at any given time. This keeps me sane, healthy, and best of all, fully attentive to you. If you want to work together, get your sessions on my calendar sooner rather than later. You're welcome to schedule online or ring/text 206.780.2998.

"The gift of intuitive touch."
It is difficult to write a testimonial for Lumière without sounding over the top, but I'll risk it. I started seeing Karen for massage at a very difficult time in my life. A combination of stress and grief had left my body wrecked. Karen was able to gently but firmly set things back into kilter, locating sources of pain that I was not even fully aware of and deftly relieving these. She has the gift of intuitive touch, perfectly accompanied by her extensive knowledge of physiology. Regular massages from Karen are one of the healthiest, kindest, and most practical things I do for myself.

"One of the best massages that I've ever had—and I've had hundreds!"
Karen addressed problem areas that really needed tending in such a gradual way that I was able to fully relax and totally let go of stress. This was one of the best massages that I've ever had—and I've had hundreds! I only wish that I had twice the amount of time.

"Healing hands and huggable warmth."
Got the first massage of my half-century of existence. My body's machinery is running at a happy low hum, thanks to the healing hands and huggable warmth of Karen Sella.

"Pain-free for the first time in months."
Over the past year, I have been the fortunate recipient of massages from Karen. In a word and with no exaggeration, Karen Sella is a healer. While she asked if I was experiencing any particular issues or areas the need more attention, I said not especially other than the usual soreness that we all experience after 50. I was so used to being sore in one area or another that I hadn't even noticed an issue with my shoulder until Karen addressed it during the massage. Karen was able to identify a problem with no indication from me, and my shoulder was pain-free for the first time in months.

"Truly wonderful massage."
I had a truly wonderful massage from Karen Sella this week. She's got a *wonderful* touch, that's for sure—but, she's also calm, mature, aware, sensitive, and very *present* during a massage. She simply radiates genuineness and trustworthiness....Because she is who she is (not because of what she knows, though she knows plenty), I asked her to work in some otherwise pretty sensitive areas....and she did a great job.

"You are in for a treat."
From the moment you arrive, you can already feel yourself beginning to relax as you are enveloped in zen-like peace that belies her other talents. Her massage "nook" is warm and inviting. The moment she puts her hands on you, you can tell you are in for a treat. Her style is intuitive and deeply relaxing. She found all the right spots. I left her home feeling taller and more grounded.

"Rekindling to my spirit, as well as my physical being."
Your body work was rekindling to my spirit, as well as my physical being. After our session, I felt lighter, brighter, and inspired. Thank you.
"SO much better."
I felt SO much better after my massage with you! I was feeling so empty and sad and off kilter when I came in but since that I've felt much more light. Thank you!
