professional and skilled

Kari plain and simply, rocks. She pinpoints the areas where I am holding the stress in my body and kneads and massages until the area releases the tension. She uses essential oils to enrich the massage experience. Her use of fascia techniques is excellent! She is always trying to learn new techniques. Her friendly demeanor and witty charm put clients at ease upon meeting her.
by Teresa on Apr 26
Kari is endlessly acquiring new knowledge with regard to massage. I have seen her grow so much in the 10 years I have been seeing her. She is excellent!
