“A few years ago, I read an article in the Reading Eagle that changed my life. It was about Karen O'Connor's Natural Hope Center. After reading about her own healing, I found the courage to make an appointment. After going through several months in a lot of pain from a herniated disc in my neck I was ready to find a new way to manage the pain. Up to this point, all other avenues caused me more pain. Karen's approach to my body work was tailored to me personally. After my first session, I knew that I could trust her. Karen's way of really being tuned in to what I need, her extensive knowledge of the body and incredible kindness are the reasons why I have continued to come to the Natural Hope Center for over three years. Karen's work has dramatically changed my life. She gives me hope by knowing that she is there when I need her.”
"I have been a client of the Natural Hope Center for the past year and a half and have benefited in many ways from the guidance, direction, and council provided by Karen O'Connor during this time. In my opinion the Natural Hope Center is the ideal complement to conventional medical care. Karen takes a genuine interest in the well-being of her patients. She first works closely with you to determine what overall health priorities need to be addressed. This is an interactive process that allows for the identification of a wide range of important lifestyle and health related issues. Most importantly, Karen involves you in establishing a plan moving forward using a combination of natural products, all of which carefully researched, and a better approach towards healthy living. Her insights, knowledge, and caring combine in a powerful way that can truly make a difference. I am most thankful to Karen and the Natural Hope Center; I consider myself fortunate to have her as a resource and adviser."
"Karen has an uncanny ability to connect one's Soul to precisely what is needed for one's health at the time she is being asked for help. Many times it may not be until years later that one realizes what her gifts are and what she has done for them, so, from my experiences, and from my heart, I would greatly encourage anyone to connect with Karen and to be blessed by her magnificent gift."
"There's a saying, I wish I could remember in its original form, but it goes something like this, 'A tree standing tall and proud has not much to offer but a bent down tree with the weight of all of its fruit has a lot to give,' this is how I would describe Karen, humble and unassuming when I met her but she has abilities that are not commonly found in a therapist, I am sure of that. I know she is not one to 'toot her own horn' so I will do it for her. Karen is a clear intuitive, she can see the underlying problems in your life, offer you practical solutions along with loving support and helping you in ways that are self empowering. Not the typical 'doctor/patient' scenario. I'm very grateful to have met Karen and I recommend her services with the highest praise. Do a huge loving favor to yourself and book an appointment with Karen"
"I can attest to the validity of Karen's intuitive healing. We were at a retreat. She felt compelled to tell me something. She asked me about my health, that she knew it was a concern of mine. She stated my belly bloat was because my thyroid and adrenals were out of balance because of stress. She even knew I had gone to the doctor and the results were normal for my thyroid test but she said she felt that with further testing it would show it was out of balance. She advised me to be kind to myself and be more mindful of why I was not eating healthfully and to eat more greens. She asked me to go to a health food store to look into supplements that would support both my thyroid and adrenals, she also suggested the supplement spirulina. It's been over two months since the retreat. I have cut out sugar and white carbs. I also added lots of greens to my diet. My stomach went way down. My face is more sculptured and my hair looks great. I am relaxed and feel so much better about myself and my health."
"I had just lost my mom a few months ago. My birthday was coming up in March and I was feeling very sad that my mom would not be there. A friend of mine told me she absolutely knew my mom would send me a sign on my birthday. However, on my birthday I was sad all day and as 4:00 pm approached, I was so disappointed that no sign came. I decided to ask my angelic guides for a sign, and the moment I finished my prayer I got a call from Karen. Karen said my mother came through to her begging to speak to me. Karen stated that my mom kept on saying, ‘my beautiful daughter’; which is what she used to say to me all the time. My mom also stated to Karen, ‘Let’s go shopping and buy you something pretty for your birthday. I am always with you my beautiful daughter’. I was stunned by the synchronization. Karen described my mom as being a boisterously happy and sweet Jewish mother, which she is. I thanked Karen for this amazing birthday gift. She is so tuned in and I am grateful for her. "
"I met Karen over 5 years ago before she opened Natural Hope Center. At that point, she was putting her business plan together for the business and shared her vision and passion to help people cope and heal from physical and emotional challenges in life. Little did I know that 3 years later, how much Karen was going to play a part in my life. Karen was able to properly identify the nature of my illness when two other doctors were not able to. It was her knowledge, compassion, and encouragement that helped me get the proper treatment and lead me to the road of recovery. From the moment I met Karen, I could tell that helping people was her number one priority and Karen proved that to me. I owe a great deal to Karen and would strongly recommend her services to anyone."
"The minute I met Karen, I knew immediately, it would be a special connection. Her loving, caring spirit instantly put me
at ease. Trust was so important to me during my healing! I remember feeling - 'someone finally gets it and understands my journey' in a way no one else could, because it was not just a physical body that needed healing, but a soul and spirit that were very wounded and tired. There was an instant energy connection that just transcended words! Her advice and guidance from spirit guides were spot on! I left feeling a deep sense of peace and felt totally nurtured in body and soul and felt so inspired. I cannot describe the shift I felt after each session! Perhaps for the first time in a long time- as her business name suggests- I felt hope! I often joked that I needed a designated driver to take me home because I was so relaxed! Karen's gifts are truly a treasure of Love and Light.
"Dr. Karen O'Connor's work is truly amazing and inspiring. She is a really special person and genuinely cares about healing people through various avenues…whatever connects with you the most! I personally saw 6 different medical doctors for health issues that went undiagnosed or misdiagnosed for months. I decided to seek holistic care and found Karen. She is the only person that listened to me and asked about my symptoms and referred me to a doctor that she knew would diagnose me correctly and provide me with the course of action I needed (on the medical front). On the spiritual front, from the moment I spoke with Karen I knew I needed her guidance. I wasn’t sure what I needed exactly, but she did. I’ve had hurtful past relationships and over the years became a negative and depressed person and completely lost touch with myself and my pathway in life. I was manifesting negativity into my life, which made me ill. In my short couple of months of working with Karen, I already feel like a different person. She provides me with valuable tools necessary to my healing process (body, mind and spirit). She was able to see my energy and empathetic nature before I was able to identify it. My first visit with Karen she commented on my energy and compassion towards dogs and inspired me to see ways I can pursue my passion of working with dogs, which I have thought about over the years, but never did anything about it. Everything you need to know is already within you, and Karen has guided me to become more in touch with myself and the Universe and wonderful things are happening in my life. With Karen’s continued guidance and loving support, the start of my spiritual journey has been the very thing I needed for my health and fulfillment of my life’s purpose.
I feel truly at peace after each of our sessions and feel like anything is possible. Karen has the ability to guide me toward what I need at that very moment and toward positive vibrations. The shift in energy I have encountered with myself after only a couple of months of working with Karen is something I had no idea I could do. My spirit is awakening, and I am more aware of the positive and negative energies around me. Good things come to me all the time and I am so excited to continue to work with Karen and progress in my journey of spiritual healing, and in time help heal others. I am truly grateful that the Universe has brought us together!"
"I am one lucky person to have discovered Karen O'Connor. I came to her with intense pain in my leg post knee surgery. Karen, with her innate ability to connect with me and especially my pain, made all the difference for me. I look forward to monthly massages to keep my body healthy and whole. I also have learned much from her about natural products for my body, which has also made a difference in my overall health. She is so knowledgeable on many topics related to health and its cure. In my opinion, Karen is an outstanding health practitioner! I am so fortunate to have found her!"
