I paid by debit card. I did not like being put on the spot to give a tip. Also, it was off putting to have the amounts and percentages of the tip on the display to choose. I usually do tip but in cash. In my opinion tips are a personal extra thank-you for service above and beyond not an expected additional payment. If you feel that tips are part of your charge it would be better to include them in the price of the massage. This aside it was a most pleasant experience. Thank-you!

Katharine McAbee is the best message therapist I have seen. She is professional, extremely skilled, and makes you feel comfortable. Her message space is calming. She knows exactly what your muscles need. I have complete trust in her abilities to provide a rejuvenating and healing message every time I see her.

Thank you so much, Kat, for a wonderful, deeply therapeutic experience. As your feng shui practitioner, my 4 stars for ambiance does not imply less than excellent, it only means that I know how amazing it is going to become!

I liked that Katherine was very professional, courteous and informed about what she was doing. Even went over my 60 min to make sure she got my most stressed areas. ;) She was great. I will definitely return.
