About Karen

Karen Himlok

Karen Himlok is a qualified doctor of homeopathy with medical sciences and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) background. She offers naturopathic, health assessment consultations and healing therapies while developing holistic services in Sanlitun, Beijing. The center specialises in safe and natural preventative healthcare, with the latest health status detection technology while integrating TCM, Nutrition, Tuina, Meridian therapy and acupuncture.

After moving to the United Kingdom, she studied and treated special needs cases that include epilepsy, autism and cerebral palsy. She completed epilepsy research in Developmental Psychiatry at the University of Cambridge, which was published in medical Epilepsy journals. She continued practice as a registered UK Naturopath, where her treatments included herbal medicine, acupoint for musculoskeletal problems, detoxification, nutritional support, anti-ageing and emotional balancing. Through her most recent work as holistic health manager in the prestigious luxury medi-spa resort, Chiva Som, in Thailand, Karen worked with some of the best healing therapists in the world and learnt how to provide the ideal healing environment for others to retreat and recover in.
Her endeavors to work with chronically diseased clients from all backgrounds led to the research and continuous discovery of the true healing potential we all possess. With over eight years of practice and five years of training experience, Karen combines her diagnostic and therapeutic skills in alternative and western medicines to develop comprehensive, specialised treatment programs to suit the individual needs of her clients. Her aims are to assist her clients to see through their physical and mental challenges, and maintain their wellbeing.  
While Karen’s consultations include clinical diagnostics, she is also sensitised to address energetic issues and she gives a transformational healing therapy that combines qi-qong and cranio-sacral work on request. Through customised prescriptions and elimination of root causes, Karen provides unique holistic treatments to attend to even the most complex of cases.

“While respecting the complexities and possibilities before during and after therapies- I see Human Beings as complex organisms made up of numerous individual systems. Major physiological systems include the blood circulatory, metabolic, immune, nervous, digestive and musculoskeletal systems. I also see the human being as multi-dimensional with multiple intelligence. Psychologically and emotionally, there are conscious and unconscious aspects, rational and irrational aspects. The more open the client can be about the issues troubling them, the easier it will be for me to work with them and therapies can be applied to deeper levels more quickly and more effectively.  I've found that the right combination of therapies applied in a synchronistic and consistent way leads to quicker transformation and energetic shift.  The combination of therapies must be tailored according to the needs of each individual, so the whole session or series of sessions are personalized and unique to each individual.The quicker I can learn about the client and given a reasonable amount of time to apply the therapies, while the client also learns new strategies and implements necessary changes to support their energetic systems, improvements are noticeable in a short space of time.  I'm able to work according to the clients body and their preferred pace, however to make optimal use of treatment time it is possible to work intensively to re-organise the systems sooner.”
