Amazing! Appreciated that I didn't get headaches/nausea during/after massage, which I usually get when people crank away on my knots. I was floating after :) Truly needed that, thanks Katherine!

I loved everything about this experience. Katherine has every last detail taken care of. From the additional aromatherapy on the face cradle to the soothing ambiance of the massage room, it was a beautiful experience. It was more than just a muscular based massage, it was a relaxing experience that reset and rejuvenated the mind.

Katherine was so welcoming and very professional. She made me feel at ease as soon as I walked in and was fantastic at communicating throughout the massage to make sure I was getting exactly what I wanted. She provided more than just a good massage, she made the whole experience feel like I was at a spa and everything was taken care of. I appreciate her so much! Thank you Katherine!
