Karla Southworth




My name is Karla Southworth and I’m the owner of Inspirations Therapeutic Massage, LLC. Therapeutic Massage is my third career, following undergraduate education at the University of Minnesota, Duluth. I spent a number of years as a real estate loan closer and 14 years in the in-house medical recruitment/locum tenens field. While working full time, I attended a 600-hour Therapeutic Massage program at Lake Superior College of Duluth, MN, graduating in May, 2008. Initially, I pursued massage part-time as an independent contractor at Comfort Zone Therapeutic Massage and in October, 2014, I established my current practice. Over the years, I've completed a number of advanced courses. Your session might include the integration of techniques from Swedish, deep tissue and myofascial work, depending on your needs. ​Most recently, I’ve been so very fortunate to participate in specialized training and advanced coursework in oncology massage. I am inspired to serve people with cancer or cancer histories, including those going through treatment or in the midst of diagnosis.
