About Caritas Center For Healing


We are a group of caring and professional holistic health practitioners dedicated to helping clients heal from the inside out. We offer a wide variety of therapies, classes, and workshops, including acupuncture, massage, yoga therapy, psychological counseling, movement and stretch classes, couples counseling and more. Our goal at Caritas is to provide you guidance, knowledge, and support as you walk your own path of healing.

Founded in 2007, Caritas Center for Healing is located in a green-certified building in the historic Armory Park neighborhood close to downtown Tucson. Our name comes from the Latin caritas, meaning altruistic love or loving-kindness. (In Greek, the word is agape.) To us, the word represents the foundation of natural healing and underlies all the healing modalities we offer.

From the founder of Caritas:

Karen Olson photo 4 purple March 2016When I was young, my mother exposed me to many kinds of naturopaths, healers, and herbalists, among them the legendary Hannah Kroeger. In 1979, I was hit by a truck and continued to seek out a variety of both conventional and alternative healing modalities to help me restore my health. What I know from my own journey is that there are no definite cure-alls. Rather, each of us resonates with different therapies, and we must each do the work to discover and experiment with them.  Any healing process is often more nuanced or lengthy than what conventional medicine offers through pharmaceuticals and surgery—though they, too, have their place. My belief is that if we are to reclaim our natural state of health, we must address the imbalances in our system, not simply suppress the symptoms. My experience has taught me that the operative force underlying every therapy is the energy of loving presence, or caritas. Thank you for reading more about Caritas.

Because of this, I founded Caritas Center for Healing, a center that offers a variety of therapies and experiences, and a place guided by the idea that love is a powerful force, especially when palpably present in helpers and healers.

Come visit.
