Katherine is knowledgeable and extremely skilled with massage therapy, as well as accessing pressure points in order to release tension. I am beyond thankful for Katherine and her work, I will be back for many more massages with her!

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.

I asked her to go after my knots and that’s exactly what she did. I appreciated the pressure as well.
