Katherine is super strong and can go very deep, which I need. She does incredible work. I felt like I could take a full breath for the 1st time in a long time, and I could stand up straighter after my appointment. I loved the music, and she's just super kind and a wonderful masseuse. She relieves a lot of pain that I get in my back, neck, hips, and legs. I can't wait to go back again soon!

Katherine was professional. She checked in with me about areas of the body that are more sensitive or have problems. She also checked in with her pressure, which was helpful, as I just lifted weights the day before and was super sore! I left feeling less tight, and more relaxed. I’m excited to get another massage!

I have chronic issues with my upper back, shoulders and neck. Katherine found all the trouble spots and did an incredible job zeroing in and relieving pain and tension. She did a full body massage that was truly one of the best treatments I ever had. She is a talented healer and I made another appointment immediately.
