Karen Fox practices several complementary and alternative healing modalities, including ThetaHealing®, Reiki, Sound Bath with Crystal Singing Bowls, and Guided Imagery Meditation. Her journey with healing energy began when, at the age of 47, she was diagnosed with Klipple-Fiel Syndrome, a birth defect effecting the cervical spine. By the time this was diagnosed she would certainly die within months without risky surgery. Karen also had extremely severe migraines which masked the symptoms of the syndrome. When she told a good friend about this her friend said that she thought Karen should take a Reiki class and revealed that she was a Reiki Master/Teacher. Karen knew nothing about Reiki but after several questions, understood that it couldn’t hurt and might help so she took the Reiki 1 class. Her friend sent Reiki to the Surgical team throughout the 10-hour surgery and all went very well. Karen’s surgeon was aware of this and welcomed the energy.
After finishing 6 months in a halo brace, and recovering from surgery, Karen took Reiki 2. Within a couple of months after the Reiki 2 class, when Karen had yet another severe migraine coming on. Hoping to avoid the almost inevitable hospital stay because of the migraine’s severity, she decided to do a self-treatment with Reiki. She completed the self-treatment and was gifted with what she later learned was ThetaHealing. She slid into deep meditation and thought or prayed, “Universe, I want all of the blocks in my being, physical, mental or emotional, that cause this pain to be gone.” Then to her amazement she witnessed a golden river of light flowing through her, dissolving five boulders of energy. She didn’t know what the boulders represented, but quietly watched them dissolve until there wasn’t even a grain of sand left. Then, she thought or prayed, “Ok then, fill the places that held that energy with light so that it can’t return.” She witnessed golden light filling all the spaces that had held the boulders. She awoke a little while later and the migraine was completely gone—and she never had another one! This set her on the journey to become a Reiki Master/Teacher.
She opened her Reiki practice in her home in 2000, offering sessions and soon beginning to teach Reiki. She taught hundreds of students Reiki 1 and 2 and had 16 students graduate from her year-long Reiki Master/Teacher apprenticeship.
Over the years of practicing Reiki Karen has explored several other modalities. While recovering from a shoulder injury and shoulder replacement surgery, she began offering Reiki with Guided Meditation instead of hands on Reiki. This grew into the Guided Imagery Meditations she now offers, including Living Peace meditations. One time while offering a meditation she had the opportunity to add the sound of a crystal bowl to the meditation. This sparked a new interest and over several years she has grown her crystal bowl collection to 8 singing bowls and offers sound baths as one of her modalities. She has no formal training in playing the crystal singing bowls but loves to offer the sessions. Clients are enthusiastic to receive them. Now she offers Sound Bath with Living Peace Meditation events on the second Monday every month in her studio.
ThetaHealing® came into Karen’s life in 2013 right after she retired from being the director of a small non-profit. A friend had frequently suggested that Karen should become a ThetaHealing Practitioner® because the friend thought Karen would love it. Karen resisted learning a fourth modality! Then Pam Lord came from Florida to teach ThetaHealing in Iowa City. Karen hesitantly went to the introductory session and fell in love with it. She took the Basic DNA ThetaHealing Seminar that weekend and it has become her favorite modality. Karen states that, “ThetaHealing is the most powerful tool I have encountered for making profound changes in our lives!” She has continued to study ThetaHealing, taking 15 different seminars or electives and repeating 2 of them to get a better understanding. She is now certified to teach Basic, Advanced, and Dig Deeper ThetaHealing Seminars and plans to get more certifications as she can.
Karen has developed workshops to offer her community that are designed to help people feel empowered to embrace life, spirituality, and joy.
