Amazing deep tissue massage in a warm and very relaxing space. I wish I had booked more than one hour and I am looking forward to my next visit!

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!
