About Us

Tender Touch is independently owned and operated by Lambton County resident Karen Childs.

Karen Childs

Karen is a Canadian Certified Pedorthist, also holding a Honours bachelor degree in Kinesiology.

As a Pedorthist, she specializes in the design, manufacture, modification and fit of footwear and foot orthotics.

Karen has been practicing in Sarnia since 2007. She graduated from her five year program at the University of Western Ontario with distinction in 2007.


Although the clinic offers a variety of services, out specialty is custom foot orthotics and footwear modifications.

We Are Different

Unlike other foot care practicioners, Pedorthists are exclusively trained in the design, manufacture and fit of custom foot orthotics. Karen operates an on-site lab, making ALL of the orthotics herself. This provides patients with an extremely rapid turn around time, and continuity of care.
