What our clients are saying about us


"Thank you Vivid Health,

Karen Steele has been my RMT for approximately a year and her various specialties have helped me tremendously. Stretches, Ashiatsu and deep massage has brought pain relief in my legs and lower back, improved range of motion and body awareness / enlightenment. The space is relaxing and promotes well-being... Something that was missing in my busy work schedule for so long. I choose to be healthier now and now understand overall health well-being starts at the spine and includes all of the muscles / nerve endings which support it.

Thanks for helping me."

"If you’re looking for a skilled massage therapist who is personable and knowledgeable, give Karen a try. I have found Karen to be a phenomenal massage therapist. Thank you Karen!!!"

Robin Sorys June 8, 2015

"I have been using the massage services of Karen Steele at Vivid Health for about 3 months. I started coming for treatment of tingling hands and tendonitis in my knees. Karen was able to identify the cause of the tingling hands immediately (tight upper back, shoulders and arms due to cycling and poling while skiing). She has a knack of determining which tendons and muscles are causing problems and getting right into them. Not only does she relieve the issues on visits to her studio, but she provides take-home exercises to maintain the relief between appointments and speed the recovery. My conditions had been getting progressively worse for a few years and my knees were limiting the amount of time I could ski or would buckle after cycling. Over the years I have had massage treatment from many therapists and Karen is definitely one of the best I've had. She communicates with you throughout to ensure the treatment is working and you are comfortable. I would highly recommend her services to anyone in need of massage therapy."

Jacqui Snyder June 8, 2015

"Karen Steele is an amazing massage therapist. With chronic pain from arthritis, my left leg was contracted so much I could only hobble. After massage sessions with Karen the muscles and tendons in my leg have new life. I'm standing straighter and walking with more stability. I always seems to look a bit younger after a massage. Thank you Karen!"

Judith Schwarz June 8, 2015

"I have had many massage therapy sessions over the years, and without question, the massages (especially Ashiatsu) from Karen Steele is by far the best for relieving back pain due to stress and prolonged sitting. Magic touch aside, she's very knowledgeable, professional and a genuinely caring person. I highly recommend Karen!"

Elisa Marras June 8, 2015

"As a dancer and fitness instructor, my job depends on my body. Karen has helped me on numerous occasions to deal with and overcome injuries and issues that allow me to access my physicality again quickly and completely. Karen is extremely knowledgeable, adept at identifying and treating in a specific and comprehensive way, and she has a broad range of skills that she draws upon. I trust her, and she has been an integral part of my healing on multiple occasions. Thanks Karen!"

Catherine June 8, 2015

"I've enjoyed many therapeutic treatments by Karen Steele, and each and every time she is able to find and focus on my specific injuries. Most recently I had an issue with my leg, and with one ashiatsu treatment, I was well on my way to running again! Karen is educated in many complementary domains, and brings a lot of experience and genuine care to each and every session."

Paul Marchildon June 8, 2015

"Karen has been treating me for over 2 years and she is amazing. Getting regular massages from Karen has helped with the frequency and severity of the migraines headaches that I've suffered from all my life. Massage has also eased my neck and back pain from sitting in from of a computer all day. I am in less pain and able to sleep a lot better. Thanks Karen :)"

Michelle C June 8, 2015

"I lead a fairly active lifestyle, with weight lifting and jogging as my primary activities. Due to those activities, I am periodically experiencing various muscle/join/neural injuries, which can range in severity from mild to medium.

Thanks to Karen's massage techniques, my core, legs and shoulders remain supple and limber. Karen is unique amongst many, many massage therapists that I've visited over the years because her skills work really well with larger muscles (hamstring, quads) that are ordinarily very hard to treat effectively.

I give my recommendation of Karen to anyone looking for a capable, creative and above all skilled massage therapist in the west end of Toronto."

Milan M June 8, 2015

"Karen is a great massage therapist, I had tight calves and back and after four sessions and advise on how to help myself with these issues, my problems are almost gone."

Joel Black June 8, 2015

"I have been told for years by 2 doctors, that I should try Yoga for stress relief and to improve the flexibility of my back muscles. After years of procrastinating, I thought it was time I tried this. I met Karen Steele and I've been doing yoga therapy sessions with her. Well, I should have done this years ago! It's amazing how simple, basic movements with controlled breathing can really impact your body. I've been sleeping better, my posture has improved and when I implement the techniques Karen has shown me, I can call upon a calmness that is very soothing. I've been in business 30+ years and have dealt with many people, but the ones that stand out are those who are genuinely passionate about their work. That list now includes Karen Steele, as she truly cares about helping her clients achieve a healthy mind and body. I know she's helped me tremendously. Many, many thanks again Karen for your expertise and passion! Cheers, :)"

Linda Rudolph June 8, 2015

"I have visited Karen Steele three times in the past few months. I suffer from stiffness in my back, knees and hips primarily because of my office job. When she first asked me whether I would mind if she used her feet for the massage, I was not quite sure what to expect. However, after the first few moments I realized just how therapeutic that method was for me and I could not imagine having my treatments in any other fashion.
Karen is always friendly and supporting. My time in her treatment room is really an oasis away from everyday stress and worry.
I would strongly recommend her services to anyone."

Dale Durand June 8, 2015

“From the moment I stepped into her space, Karen made me feel welcome.
The atmosphere of the massage room is quiet and comfortable. Gentle music plays, her touch is firm and healing throughout. I know I was relaxed because I actually fell asleep a couple of times. I recommend Karen Steele to anyone seeking a relaxing, and refreshing massage, for any reason.

You will be “in good hands”. “

Bruce Harrott June 8, 2015

"I enthusiastically recommend Karen Steele as the top massage therapist in Bloor West Village. Karen helped me recover from a significant athletic injury through a series of treatments and recommendations for rehab work. I now visit regularly for maintenance."

Michael Kudrac June 8, 2015

"Thank you Karen!

I never usually write testimonials/reviews, but Karen is awesome.

My wife referred me to Karen, for some issues I was having with my neck/head. I had been to Karen before (who is an amazing RMT), but I wasn't sure massage therapy was the right solution for the head/neck issues I was having.
I figured I would pay Karen a visit anyway, to see if it helps. I told Karen about the issues I was having, and right away she knew what I was going through. After a 60 minute treatment, all my head issues had disappeared, and I was back to normal. This was 2 weeks ago now, and I'm still feeling great.

I would recommend Karen to anyone looking for a great RMT.

Thank you!"

Mike June 8, 2015

"I've been seeing Karen Steele for two years now. Before that I was looking for a massage therapist whose technique I would like for a long time.
Karen has a holistic view of people. She not only "listens" to my body during the treatment and works accordingly, but she also listens to my soul. Sometimes she will recommend short and simple yoga or meditation exercises to help deal with the everyday stress. What is important to me is that she is highly professional and knowledgeable, but she only offers and shares her ideas and never pushes them. She also has an established network of complementary healthcare practitioners which she recommends to help with any health related issues that I share with her. I feel that Karen truly cares for her client's overall wellbeing. Her massage techniques are amazing weather you need to relax or to deal with a specific problem area, and I always leave refreshed, recharged and looking forward to my next appointment."

Sanja Todorovic June 8, 2015

"Karen Steele is absolutely amazing and I'm so happy to have found her at Vivid Health. She incorporates various techniques in her treatments, which have worked wonders to relieve my overall tension and stress. She is very knowledgeable and has provided me with many helpful tips on how to treat ailments naturally. Both my husband and I see Karen on a regular basis and we would highly recommend her. Thanks Karen!!"

Michelle June 8, 2015

"Karen is a gifted and highly skilled healer. Having been a chronic muscular pain sufferer for close to ten years, I have received many forms of bodywork and other therapies. I can say with confidence that Karen is among the finest you will find anywhere. Her expert skill, broad knowledge, open-minded attitude, and effective communication skills have been major factors in my healing process."

Jon, Buenos Aires June 2, 2015

"I have this funny thing I do after Karen's massages: I sit up on the massage table and look at myself in the big mirror, and get surprised by how stunning and beautiful I look... You know, like in those moments, where you are at your best... This irresistible combination of happy and lively, relaxed and sensual at the same time. I have received many massages and I hate mediocre, superficial ones - Karen's are the very opposite! They are profound, thorough, high quality."

Beatrix, Buenos Aires June 2, 2015

"Karen is a gifted, knowledgeable, and highly intuitive therapist and healer. I have been treated by a number of massage therapists in the past and have spent many hours upon days upon years training and competing in high level tennis. As I have dealt with many sports related injuries over the years, I consider her abilities to be second to none. The benefits of her services are immense."

Brian, Buenos Aires June 2, 2015

"My experience with Ashiatsu hands on or shall I say feet on my body treatment has been a delight. I literally could not tell at times if Karen had her hand or foot on my body. I enjoyed the depth and the lightness of the treatment. What a profound way to receive bodywork. I would totally recommend Ashiatsu massage therapy as an alternative to other types. I trust Karen and I believe that this is one of the keys to enjoyment of the treatment, is trusting your therapist. Peace, peace, peace."
