The Green Room is run by Karen Griffiths, who has a long list of experience and qualifications to her name. Trained in Manchester as a Beauty and Holistic Therapist at Manchester City College, Karen received the prestigious Student of the Year award for her efforts. Later working in hotel management, Karen desired a return to more holistic work and moved to Yorkshire to start her own business.

Whilst in Yorkshire, Karen worked in hospices and on a one-to-one basis for individual clients whilst looking for a suitable, more permanent venue. After a lengthy search, she settled on the quiet village of Oxenhope for its intimate, friendly atmosphere, and so The Green Room was born.

Karen is professionally trained as a Clinical Aromatherapist, and has diplomas in Reflexology and Aromatherapy. She also has a BTEC in Stress Management, Level 1 and 2 qualifications in reiki and an NVQ Level 2 + 3 in Beauty Therapy.
