I am late in writing this. I went to Kitzie for a couple of general relaxing massages and foot reflexology in the past. Kitzie knows what she is doing. Her hands (and elbows) know where structures are, feels where a problem is, and knows how to help. Friends go to her for facials, and rave for days afterward. My most... More

I've had many massages in the US and elsewhere and Kitzie is the best! You can tell as soon as her hands are on you that she knows what she's doing and her massage is superb.

Kitzie could not have been more accommodating, professional, effective and just delightful. An hour and a half of pure heaven as she kneads and relaxes muscles using just the right pressure in a clean, comfortable, space. A fantastic way to wind down my vacation. Thank you.
