Truly skilled and a great listener! "Karen is amazing & worth every penny! She listens as she works, she is completely thorough, and the atmosphere is perfect: very quiet, dimly lit, soft music, and no sense of hurry. What I like best is that I prefer a deep tissue massage and she delivers, without breaking a sweat, for an hour (even 1.5 hours)! Also, communication is excellent. If she's going too deep or if I need more attention in a particular area, I feel perfectly comfortable saying so and she adjusts effortlessly. The best!!!"

Best Massage Ever! "I've been to many massage therapists, and Karen is by far, the best I've found. She has a very clear understanding of the muscle system, and does amazing work. "
Jenna B – April 2017
The best massage I have ever gotten. "Do yourself a favor and go see Karen. She is amazing and really wants to help people. I really enjoyed my massage. I left feeling so relaxed and my knots were gone in my neck. I will be back definitely. Karen is a kind soul."
Daniel F – April 2017
Karen is a master at her craft. "Karen has been friendly and caring since day one. I continue to go to her because I know I will be greeted warmly and taken care of. Her skills are great and I feel renewed every time I leave. She has excellent advice and knowledge on the subject of self care and has no problem explaining how, why and where you can go about treating yourself. I highly recommend Holistic Life Approach. "
Brett P – April 2017
Amazing experience! "The therapist is very knowledgeable in anatomy, good at explaining how the muscles work together, and unmatched in working out the problems. She offered a customized massage that left me feeling great. I slept all night, for the first time in months! She also was able to recommend several options for combating the factors that are triggering my daily pain. I will definitely be back."
Jenna B – March 2017

WOW!! "Karen found and worked every trouble spot and some I didn't know I had ! Great massage and also very relaxing. I will definitely be back. Thank you Karen. "
Dayna B – January 2017
Fabulous! Karen gives a great massage. Very relaxing. In fact, she did such a good job, I put on my shirt backwards when I got dressed!
Kathy – December 2016
First time massage at Holistic Life! I had a very good experience. The massage was very relaxing and she worked all the spots that were giving me the most problems. I love the hot towels. That was a nice added touch and made it more relaxing. Only thing I would change personally is the music. Not that the music wasn't nice but it was a guitar. Yes, still mellow but, I just prefer birds, water, nature, very mellow music. Will put me to sleep usually and that's what I like. Also, I would recommend more essential oils with fragrance.
Karen D. – December 2016
Fixed my pinched nerve -best massage I've gotten! I had a pinched nerve in my lower back from working out, causing me to not be able to walk and sit comfortably - After getting a massage with her, the pain magically went away! She was able to focus in on my problem areas and make it feel SO much better. Her hands/arms are carefully, artfully, educated massage extensions! She even helped me do some stretches precisely for my nerve and lower back after the massage. It was a super spiritual experience, it was so good and freeing!
Mallory W. – November 2016
Have had a shoulder problem for the past 2 months. After massage I could feel the knot subsiding . No more throbbing today. She has great hands. Thanks!
Lise H. – October 2016
Great! Slept well last night, no aches and no headache. Thank you! Was pretty sore but my muscles needed it. Feeling better today.
S.A. – September 2016
Very conscientious. Karen gives personal attention very individualized to the client. She really is assisting me with some ongoing discomfort in a non-invasive way. I appreciate her professional caring nature.
D.C. – September 2016
Highly Recommended! Karen takes the time to listen and address areas that need attention. The setting is calming and the massage is awesome. She's very attentive regarding pressures, and she's a pleasure to be around. You're always comfortable when you're on her table. Having a lot of massages at resorts that are supposed to have word class masseuse's I will say none compared with what she was able to do in finding the right combination of stretching and working the muscles to make me completely relaxed.
C.B. – August 2016
No Headache! Woke up this morning, for the first time in weeks, without a headache! Thanks Karen---Very therapeutic and relaxing massage, Karen listened to my preferences and needs, and I will be back!
S.A. – July 2016
Great massage! As a fellow massage therapist, I can be picky when it comes to receiving a good massage. That's why I love getting work done by Karen. She is thorough. Excellent massage!
M.P. – June 2016
First massage with Karen. Karen was very professional and interested in working on my areas of need. Her massage techniques were great! I left feeling relaxed and rejuvenated! I will be going back!
Pam F – June 2016
Best 1 1/2 hours. My massage therapist moved on and I haven t had a massage in months. Karen did a great job. Comfortable setting and firm massage. Will go again soon. Thanks.
gloria s - June, 2016
Best hour I had to myself in a long time. Have had a number of massages and Karen's is probably one of the best I have had. Her massage room is very pleasing to the eye and definitely sets the mood. She made me feel very welcomed and relaxed. When she was done I wanted more. She has great hands!
L.H. -June, 2016
A Great Massage! I have had a lot of massages and this ranks among the best. Karen is very nice. The environment and setting were nice and relaxing. She talked to me for a little bit, but then allowed me to zone out and focus only on how good she was making my body feel. When it was over it was like waking up from a very good dream. My body felt extremely relaxed and refreshed.
J.S. -May, 2016
Awesome work! Amazing massage by Karen. It was my first professional massage, and she was very pleasant and personable. Thanks Karen!
J.B. - April, 2016
Very professional and thorough. My 90 minute massage was very thorough and relaxing. I highly recommend upgrading to the 90 minute if you can. The staff at Holistic Life Approach was very attentive to my specific needs.
J.M. - March, 2016
Excellent experience. I went here after running a marathon to help with muscle recovery. The atmosphere and the work done we're perfect for what I needed. Perfect for both mind and body.
Chris T - March, 2016
Nice massage Center. I Like the setup. It's nice and pleasant. Karen is very soft and nice. I am new here and this was my first visit and thanks to Karen, I got the right place. Her massage works for me. Thank you.
S.S. - February, 2016
Really good. I've had two massage sessions with Karen, and both were awesome. She makes you feel comfortable and really knows what she's doing. I leave feeling a lot better than when I went in. Much better than the 'massage envy' type places. Thank you!
D.L. - January, 2016
Perfect. So thankful for Karen!! She has my ear touching my shoulder after the deep tissue massage. She's amazing and just the therapy i need after my neck surgery
E.H. - November, 2015
Exactly what I needed. Ms. Karen was very sweet and knowledgeable. She pointed out issues that I didn't even know I had and suggested ways to improve my physical state. Her massage was exactly what I needed and has helped tremendously. I would, with no doubt in my mind, go see her again and recommend her to all my friends and family!! Thank you Ms. Karen, You are the best !!
J.K. - October, 2015
Well worth it. The massages I have gotten are so good---very nice lady---such comfortable surroundings---all aches and pains are gone....

R.F. - June, 2015
Very Relaxing. Thank you Karen for hitting the right spots and finding the right knots. My shoulders and arms feel much better. I look forward to the next session. Thank you!
J.B. - April, 2015
Great Massage and super nice owner. Called to make an appt and was very impressed with the professionalism and level of communication. Upon arrival at my appt. Karen listened to my concerns and areas where I needed attention. She was very good and helped me a lot.
B.P. - April, 2015
Engineer. Great experience in a peaceful atmosphere. Therapist is highly skilled and friendly attitude. I would recommend to anyone wanting a quality, healing experience.
N.M. - April, 2015
Relief! As we get older we find that we can have aches in places we can't reach easily anymore. A friend told me about Holistic Life Approach and my wife said, "you need to go and see if you can get relief with an upper body massage". I went, I did and I recommend Karen highly. The whole process is very relaxing, calming and beneficial. Go treat yourself or someone you care about.
Capt.T. - April, 2015
Thoroughly enjoyed it! I really enjoyed my consultation with Karen. She seemed down to earth, knowledgeable and interested in providing me with resources to help me achieve the goals I had set for myself.
Patsy - January, 2015
A wonderful massage!
I loved my massage! Karen was so warm and welcoming which added to my experience. The massage was just what I needed, Karen went over all the troubled areas, as well as relaxing all my body. I left completely rejouvinated! I will tell my friends.
Sondra H - January, 2015
Refreshing. This was my first massage in years. It was wonderful. I was very relaxed and felt great when I left. I can't wait for my next visit.
T.K. - November, 2014
Relaxing Massage. Enjoyed a 90 min massage done by Karen Boudreaux. It had been over 1-2 yrs since I had a massage and my muscles and body forget how relaxing a massage could be. Thanks Karen
A.D. - October, 2014
Magnifique! I had just gotten back from a European trip. Needed to get a few kinks out of my system from flights & Hotels. Karen provided the relaxation mood and a great massage. It was equivalent to those I had in California.
A.V. - September, 2014
Wonderful. The massage I received at Holistic Life Approach was wonderful! I had some back pain for several weeks and after my massage I felt great. I can't wait to go back!
T.L. - September, 2014
Great massage! Got rid of my aches immediately! Karen did an excellent job easing my aches. I had bad headaches and a lot of tension in my neck and shoulders. The massage itself was wonderful, in a beautiful and soothing room, and the next day I felt like a new person. Best massage I've ever had!
R.R. - September, 2014
Wonderful massage!!! I have had neck & shoulder problems for quite some time. My chiropractor suggested I have a massage to go along with his adjustments. The next day following my massage from Karen my neck & shoulders feel much better. I have not waken with a headache in 2 days, which was daily, & no longer have the pain I had been having. Karen is a gifted & talented person. Thanks for the relief you have given me.
S.M. - August, 2014
Awesome! Karen is so gifted. She has the touch. The space is very relaxing. I recently had some major issues & she worked on me a few times & got them worked out beyond my expectations. I highly recommend her! I go on a regular basis to keep things on track.
J.M. - July, 2014
Awesome massage! That was maybe the most amazing massage of my entire life. I've had massages before, but this one stood out far above the rest. I definitely want to go back again.
G.M. - July, 2014
Really great rub! This was the first time for me at 90 minutes. Don't know if I can go back to 60. Very good. The jojobo oil was perfect, no problem for my skin allergies.
W.L. - June, 2014
Perfect!!! The massage was absolutely perfect, the best I have ever had. Perfect pressure, relaxing, therapeutic. The room was a perfect temperature, the music was very relaxing & not distracting, just at the perfect sound level. The entire experience was perfect. Scheduled my next appointment already.
S.M. - June, 2014
Awesome! Loved the massage room, it has a great atmosphere with just the right lighting. The massage was just perfect. I will be back!
C.N. - June, 2014
Excellent! So enjoyed this massage. Already made my next appointment...And also making an appointment for my husband.
N.D. - May, 2014
Very good massage. This massage was had by my husband. He is very hard to please. This visit was a success! He will be back!
W.L. - May 2014
Hour Massage. Karen was very professional and on point with the massage. I had limited range of motion in my right shoulder prior to my appt after I was amazed with results. Can't wait to make another appt.
Brenda K. - April, 2014
Excellent! Karen was great! Professional, polite and very good at what she does. I was in a fair amount of pain when I arrived and a day later am still feeling fine. She is an excellent masseuse.
Buzzy Brown - April, 2014
Awesome massage! It was a wonderful experience. Karen took the time before the therapy session to find out what I wanted/needed since it was my first time. I was so relaxed afterwards. She is the best! The room was warm and comfortable too. I'll definitely treat myself to another massage!
Alejandra Lege - April, 2014
Great Massage!! Wonderful massage! Left Holistic Massage feeling light and relaxed. I'm dealing with both mental and physical issues and Karen gave me some relief from both. The hot towels were a bonus I've never experienced during a massage. I will treat myself to another massage soon. Thanks
Peggy Howell - March, 2014
Warm inviting atmosphere & great massage! Holistic Massage is a no nonsense therapeutic massage. No need to get all dolled up to keep up with the Jones. Forget the cookie cutter salons if all you want or need is an intensive massage to relieve your aches and pains. Karen is so nice and if you feel like talking ask her about her world travels! Highly recommend.
D.L - March, 2014
I'm hooked on Holistic massage. I was in pain with my back and could not sit at my job. Karen went to work on me and I was much better. I felt relaxed and comfortable . I could not wait for my second appointment. Wish I could get a massage from Karen everyday. Hope I can get at least one a month. I am recommending her to everyone I know.
L.S. - March 2014
One of the Best! I believe in the healing power of massage and get them on a regular basis (at least every 2 weeks if not more often) This was my first massage with Karen. I was very pleased and found it very relaxing after a very tense week of work. Her hot towel treatments added an extra touch you don't find with many massage therapist. I highly recommend her for your next massage or your first. You won't be disappointed.
Chuck Morris - March, 2014
Excellent! Karen was very knowledgable and personable during my experience. She has a way of knowing what you need. Highly recommend her!
A.C. - February, 2014
Amazing Experience! I took a chance and purchased a massage for Holistic Life Approach from Amazon.com and had an amazing experience. I have used massage therapy many times in the past and Karen is truly one of the best therapists out there. I will definitely be returning.
Monica N. - February, 2014
Perfection! Everything was wonderful. The lighting, music, warm massage table, & best of all, Karen knows what she is doing. I highly recommend her.
Julie Manuel - February, 2014
Wonderful! Great stress relieving massage! Environment was perfect, good location, and very easy to book my massage. I had a groupon, but will definitely return without one!
M.J. - November, 2013
Best massage every I have been going to Paris Parker ... However Karen was outstanding an working on areas where I needed it .. She was very kind an knowledge I highly recommend her .. Can't wait to return ..
Theresa N - November, 2013
I've not gotten many massages outside of stopping by a kiosk in the mall to get one in a chair. So I went in to Holistic Life Approach not knowing what to expect; but Karen was super helpful and made me feel at ease. She is an excellent masseuse who knows a lot about the body and focuses on helping her clients manage their health. I have to say I left Holistic Life Approach feeling like a million bucks! A few key things I observed after the massage:
-I felt refreshed, less stressed and revitalized.
-My thinking was a little clearer
-My focus was sharper, i.e., my mind was not all over the place.
I have booked several more massages for future dates.
I highly recommend Holistic Life Approach not only for massages but for learning about wellness and health!
L.S. - October 2013 *** from Yelp
Great massage. I was skeptical about purchasing a Groupon for a massage since I didn't know much about the Holistic Life Approach clinic. Well I am very pleased with the whole experience. It is a very calming and relaxing room, nice and dark but with plenty of candlelight, nice music playing, and my massage was wonderful. I especially enjoyed the hot towels to my back and feet. I will definitely be going back soon - with or without a Groupon. Well worth the money!!
H.G. - October 2013
Wonderful!!!! Great massage! Relaxing environment! My tense neck and back pain actually improved after one visit! I Highly recommend!
D.S. - October 2013
Stress Relief. Great massage would highly recommend. I had a complete relaxation full body massage. Just the right amount of pressure. I plan on going back soon.
Tim S - October 2013
Great experience. My husband bought this massage for me from Amazon Local and I am pleased to say that it was a great experience. Karen did a wonderful job, was very professional and her place is very nice. I would definitely go back to her.

Sherri D - July 2013
"I was suffering from a sports injury and was referred to Karen Boudreaux by my chiropractor. I found her to be very proficient in both deep tissue and therapeutic massage. She knew instinctively which areas needed attention and was able to give me the relief I was looking for. I can't thank her enough and highly recommend her."
Maris T - June 2013
"I was given a 90 minute massage for my birthday and was very happy with the experience. Karen listened and actually tailored the massage to my needs. Afterward, she took the time to educate me on the possible benefits of fermented veggies to treat my acid reflux. Very nice person. I would recommend Karen to any and everybody."
Jeffrey R - June 2013
"I have had many massages. It is hard to find someone who can focus on the clients’ needs, be quiet and positive, and do such a fabulous job of working out those kinks. Karen is awesome! I would recommend her to anyone. In fact I think I will."
