"I first started massage with Katie when I was in the midst of some really debilitating back problems. She has a very therapeutic technique as well as a relaxing touch. She is the best of both worlds when it comes to massage!"
- C. Bolter
"Katie saved my race! I wouldn’t have been able to run my first marathon if it wasn’t for her. I got injured two weeks before the race. She worked her magic and I was ready to go! She even squeezed me in the day before the race! Thanks Katie! I couldn’t have done it without you! If you’re looking for a “fluff and buff” massage, you’ve come to the wrong place! Katie takes the time to talk with you about what hurts, what concerns you have, and what you want out of your time with her. She really utilizes your time and her knowledge to give you exactly what you need to feel better."

"I was nagged by injuries
for months until I started seeing Katie regularly. I'm now back to running ultra distances. In just a few months, I've gone from being very discouraged to
being in high gear preparing for Western States!"
- D. Wittman
"Katie is very thorough. She often explains what she's doing and why. She not only provides massage, but stretches and offers suggestions on how to prevent further or recurring problems. Most massage therapists don't seem to listen when you tell them exactly where you hurt and want massaged, but Katie does and tailors the massage based on requests. Her energy, warm personality and enthusiasm for what she does is immediately evident. She truly cares about the people she works with and is concerned about how she can improve their well-being and health."
- S. Detrick
"One of the best massages I have had in a long time. Other massage therapists I have had do not do a great job addressing your needs; Katie listens and focuses her massages on the sore areas you request. Katie's knowledge of physical therapy enables her to help you in ways regular massage therapists cannot. I highly recommend her."
- T. McManigal
“Katie is amazing! After months of training for the California International Marathon, I began feeling extreme pain in my knees, and didn’t know if I was going to be able to continue training. Five weeks before the race, I went in to Katie, wondering if it was too late for anything to be done, and she knew exactly what to do to get me back in the game. It turns out my IT bands were in pretty bad shape, and by using a combination of her knowledge and precise technique, she had me feeling better in no time! I finished the race five weeks later pain and injury free! Thank you Katie for your diligent effort and hard work. You are the best! Thanks."-
"I have seen Katie once and she did fantastic job. As a runner, I have many nagging aches and pains. Prior to my massage, Katie asked if I had any areas that were needing more attention than others, which I did. After discussing these areas, Katie went to work focusing on my tight hip flexors and sore back. What a difference my hour with her made! My back felt so much better and my sore hip did not bother me as much. I felt that Katie used just the right amount of pressure and did not go so deep I was left feeling sore and in pain. If I did not live in the bay area, I would definitely continue seeing Katie. She has an in depth knowledge of the body and really pays attention to the areas that need the most work. She is also extremely professional and really puts you at ease. I would highly recommend her to anyone, from an elite athlete to a stressed out office administrator!"
- L. Streeper
"Katie's extensive physical therapy background is readily apparent as she works deep into tired and sore muscles. Her in-depth knowledge of the muscle and skeletal systems allow her to get to the source of problems and alleviate them quickly. Katie is caring, compassionate and thorough in her approach to treating her clients."
- C. Detrick
"Katie saved my life!! I'd been training for a long distance triathlon for over a year, and about 6 weeks before the race I pulled my left calf muscle. Fearing that I'd ruined a year's worth of work, I visited Katie in the hopes she could fix me up. Sure enough, her magic hands had me back on the road in no time, and I successfully completed my first Ironman Triathlon. I literally would not have finished without her help. Thanks Katie!!"- D. Zander
"I am a martial artist and weight lifter who does not know how to "take it easy". Due to this attitude toward training, I have had severe muscle tension and a shoulder injury that has hindered my training.Due to Katie's in depth knowledge of the body, she has given me back the mobility in my shoulder and has my body working more efficiently due to my muscles being relaxed and functioning properly. I highly recommend her to anyone who is involved in any sports or activity." - J. Everett-Shihan (10th degree master instructor )
