Karah Short (Owner)

Lives in the Mount Vernon area with her husband, and is a mother to a beautiful little girl and son. Family is very important to me, this is why I spend every minute I can out of office with them.

I first got interested in massage when I was in 8th grade when my mother was in a car accident and later diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. Since then it became my goal to help others feel better and not suffer from pain.

In 2003 I graduated from the Lexington Healing Arts Academy(LHAA) and has been a Certified Licensed Massage Therapist since 2003 and a Licensed Massage Therapist since 2005. In February 1st 2010 I decided it was time for me to open my own business and that's when Peace be Still Massage & Wellness LLC was born!!

My goal in every session is to let the client know that the table time is their time not mine. If a client wants to talk, laugh, cry, lay and be, or sleep that is all up to the client. I try my very best to listen to the client and their personal needs and goals for the session; if this means a 60 min massage focusing on neck and shoulders lets go for it!!!

Karah has also received a Certification in Fibromyalgia and Pain Management, Certification in Spa Therapy that Heals(Certification includes body wraps, facials, scrubs etc), additional training in the spa industry while working at Woodhouse Day Spa,16 hrs in Reflexology, and additional training in Hot Stone Massage, Prenatal Massage,Sports Massage, and Chair Massage.

Since graduating from LHAA you might know Karah from working in other massage locations in KY such as: Touch of Class in Mount Vernon, Hello Gorgeous and NV Salon and Spa in Richmond, Woodhouse Day Spa in Somerset, Serenity Therapeutic Massage, and Berea Clinic of Internal Medicine both here in Berea.

Karah is available Tuesday Thursday and Friday. At this time Karah is only by referral only and is not accepting new clients.
