About Me


My Experience

I graduated from the University of Michigan with a B.S. in Kinesiology. I was passionate at a young age about working with people who had physical challenges and did post-rehab and aquatic therapy in a boutique gym after graduation. Two years later, I moved to Arizona to pursue my M.S. in Exercise Physiology. During my last year, I was in a major car accident and found myself in a situation where I was the one who needed the healing. After experiencing the benefit of M.A.T. I took on another year of schooling to become certified and have spent the last 12 years treating clients with muscular pain and injury. Once again, after doing thousands of treatments  I found my body needing healing, and this time I created my own unique program. I am committed to sharing this with massive amounts of people as I know the impact it had and continues to have on my wellness and health. 


My Loves

I'm a momprenuer who juggles work, theatre rehearsals, cheer practice and cooking and I wouldn't want it any other way. We love camping, hanging with friends and renting movies together. They are my biggest supporters and motivators to help change this world. I am so very blessed. 


My mission

My mission is to be fully present and vibrant, to educate and inspire others to love and heal themselves, so that they can live their lives in full alignment, sharing their purpose with energy, strength, and emotional peace.

"Karyn has the ability to quickly achieve rapport and instill trust."

It is with great enthusiasm that I recommend Karyn Hendricksen. Karyn has worked as an independent contractor for Cigna Onsite Health since August of 2011. She has worked in various capacities including: teaching and educating on numerous wellness topics from nutrition and fitness to stress and weight management as well as chronic diseases from heart disease and hyperlipidemia to metabolic syndrome and diabetes. 

Karyn is a good judge of character and has the ability to “meet people where they are at” and effectively coach individuals towards that next step in making positive behavior change. She instructs with compassion and enthusiasm. Karyn is continually praised by the companies that we send her to. Some client comments include:
Karyn is passionate about wellness! Other health professionals could learn a lot about her whole person approach”
“She made the information presented easy to understand”
“Karyn has the ability to quickly achieve rapport and instill trust” 

Karyn’s compassion, diligence, and whole person approach is perfect the needs of the wellness world today! She is a true asset to Cigna and would be for any other organization as well!

"........her genuine compassion and respect for others is at the top of her repertoire of flair"

As the coordinator of the Health and Wellness Program at Scottsdale Healthcare, I would like to take a moment of your time to tell you about the quality work of Karyn Hendricksen, owner of Restorative Wellness Center. Karyn has provided several workshops for me with regard to exercise and stress. She has not only proven herself to be a dedicated and hard-working individual, but her genuine compassion and respect for others is at the top of her repertoire of flair. 

She is an extremely responsible, self-motivated, and detail-oriented woman who has invested herself in a life-long learning program of health and fitness. For all these reasons plus a multitude of others, I would strongly recommend Karyn Hendricksen, for any of your future presentation needs. - Pat Duryea, P.h.D.
