Definitely not a "Spa"
I have several therapists that I see (close to work, close to home, close to mtn cabin)on a regular basis. Kristina is my "close to work" therapist. She is fantastic. Take everything that you don't like about a spa (methodical, impersonal, rushed, etc., etc.) and Kristina sets an ambience that is exactly the opposite. It is obvious that she is a massage therapist by choice and this is her life. She takes great care to seek out the problem areas and work out the knots. 90 minutes with Kristina and I am a revived person instead of a stressed out corporate stiff.
