Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Kathy is not only an excellent practitioner of her art, she is also a caring and empathetic person who has excellent customer service skills. She is a real find. I'm sincerely happy that our paths have crossed. I would recommend her to anyone who is in need of her services.

    I look forward to my sessions with Kathy from the time I leave her until the next time we get to work together. It is a team effort. My body has learned to trust her and just go with her. When we are done, whatever physical or emotional restrictions I was carrying around are gone. It is a liberating experience. You feel lighter and happier. I can't wait for the next session. 'Maggie'

  • The awarenes Kathy applies to her service is other worldly. A treatment with her is an amazing engaging journey through your body; quiet and effective unwinding. She is extremely talented. A real find!

    Quiet Professional Generous Skillful

  • There was nothing to dislike! Kathy's knowledge, professionalism, gentle caring spirit and intuition make a session with her an unforgettable experience; one you can't wait to duplicate. Being totally pain free & comfortable in my body for 29 hours means I will be making another appointment very soon. Dr. SKH

    Highly Recommend. Beautiful experience

  • I went to Ms Bates with a swollen knee I had not been able to walk without great pain for at least 4 wks. I had seen an MD, a chiropractor and an acupuncturist. None helped for longer than an hour. My knee was inflamed and hugely swollen and I had joint pain in all parts below the waist. My appt was 2.9, Fri. Today, Sat.,my knee is only slightly swollen, hardly inflamed, and I can walk with very little pain. I rate this as fantastic and amazing. I highly recommend Ms. Bates and plan on having more appts. with her. She is the real deal!

    A lovely healing experience. I felt much better after my treatment and. the results lingered fro days afterward. Very satisfying.

  • I really think it helped me and I am looking forward to my next appointment!

    Kathy is terrific, and really knows what she is doing. I searched for a really good Massage Therapist after I moved from Pennsylvania to Florida, and I tried a dozen or so bunch of half baked wannabe's that didn't do much for me before I found her. Kathy is all about the Therapy part of Massage Therapy. I'm so happy that I found her. I recommend her without reservations!!

In my first visit, I was impressed with Kathy's skill and thoroughness. I knew intuitively that she was addressing my complaints coming in to the session. I experienced an enormous amount of release afterwards and it continues the day after. She is an extraordinarily skilled healer.

Business response:

Thank you very much Bill. I read this and know that the work was beneficial to you as you stated it continued. And this may do so for several days. Great news to here and thank you for your trust!

A session with Kathleen put me back on my feet without the nagging pain issues that I arrived with. Her focus was obvious and her skill in determining approach and resolving issues was evident. I plan on becoming a regular client. Haven't felt this "lightened" in over 6 months.

Very personable, and very devoted to helping. Front office smelled a bit musty to me, but her studio was fine.

Thank you very much! I'm sorry about the waiting area? I was unaware but will bring this to the attention of the cleaning service.

Kathy is outstanding and takes massage to a whole higher level. No wasted motion. If the muscle needs work, she finds it and gets it. The wealth of knowledge and experience Kathy has is amazing. The bigger picture is a practical holistic session that incorporates muscle groups, how they work together, with underlying functions and structure. In layman's terms, she has worked the kinks out and given me practical suggestions of how to make my "body machine" work better. Add to this a nice personality - doesn't get better. If you want a fluff massage, go somewhere else. If you are looking for a dedicated and knowledgeable professional who can make change in how your body works and feels, do yourself a favor and see Kathy.

Business response:

Thank you very very much.
