Kitzie is such a great person and really made me feel comfortable. It was a really great massage and I enjoyed every second of it. It was recommended to me by some friends and co-workers and I will without a doubt recommend it in the future.

Kitzie provided a wonderful 90 minute massage with a high degree of proficiency in multiple holistic healing modalities. I left feeling relaxed yet invigorated, with new knowledge and references and recommendations to other specialists in related fields and interests. The therapy was a great value and an exceptional experience. Additionally, she would not accept a tip for her services but... More

I went to go see Kitzie after a few days of hiking and rock-climbing. I was immediately struck by her amazing energy and incredible lightness. Her massage techniques are some of the best I have ever experienced. She is the real deal.

Kitzie does regular and deep tissue massage, but I love the cranial sacral work she does to relieve the tension in my neck and body. Also she showed me how to drain my sinuses with a face massage and so much more. Tranquil and refreshing. I highly recommend. She is the real thing.

A perfect blend of therapeutic and holistic. Highly recommended. Just the right amount of pressure and a nice setting. Be sure to ask Kitzie about the "cork trick" to relieve tension in the jaw. Thank you!
