KATE NICHOLS LMT, RYT, BA
I had my first ever massage experience with Kate, who was thorough, knowledgeable, and super attentive. She made me feel at ease from the start, which I really appreciated (I wasn't sure what to expect!). She addressed my problem areas and even gave me yoga advice during our debrief session.
I could sense Kate's calm energy immediately. It was clear she was a professional, and listened to what I had to say about my body. She thoughtfully asked about essential oils. The massage was incredible. I could feel the tension in my muscles melting away. Before I left, Kate offered a few stretches I could do at home for my shoulders. Afterward I felt like I was walking on a cloud!
I honestly have to say it was one of the best massages I have ever had. Kate took the time to talk with me beforehand to discuss my expectations and problem areas. All were addressed during the massage and I left feeling relaxed and amazing. Kate gives a very focused massage and the time I was there felt longer than the 60 minute session I booked.
