Katherine is always professional and a joy to see! Her message skills are beyond amazing! She always makes sure you are comfortable and happy with the techniques she uses. I would recommend her to anyone needing physical therapy massage or just some self care. She’s awesome!

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!

Thank you!

Katherine finds the areas that needs the most work and healing. She has a strong intuition of what is happening in the body and not only gives the best massages, but solid advice on how to help outside of the massage.
