I scheduled a massage for the morning of our last day of vacation. It was the perfect way to end an almost perfect vacation. Just wish I had scheduled sooner. On the first day of vacay I strained my back putting up a beach umbrella. So dumb. So anyway, Angelic gave my massage and it was amazing. I told her... More

Was hoping for a massage and had the best hour and a half I've had in a looooong time. From the hot stones, to the insane stretching. I walked out feeling refreshed and ready to go as opposed to tired and wanting to nap. Catherine was amazing. Every question I had about my back or feet she had an answer.... More

I had a ninety minute session with Catherine this past Friday to address some problems with my back, having the extremely good fortune to book the last session available for the week. She gave me the best deep tissue work I've ever had, and did stretching exercises on me to make sure everything was freed up, lined up and loosened... More

I received a massage from Catherine and let me tell you...It was amazing! I highly recommend this business for any service of relaxation or pain management. It was the little things that made the massage that much better. The smells from the oils, the heated table, the body oils, and the relaxing music. I felt like a slice of butter... More

I had a massage with Catherine and will be going back again and again. Catherine is a gifted practitioner. I felt very pampered throughout. She used hot stones and warm towels in addition to her powerful hands. My body and spirit felt relaxed, healed, and uplifted when I left. I couldn't recommend her more highly.

This was by far the highlight of my vacation! My call was returned quickly and a time found that would work well. Parking was easy and the energy in the studio was calm and relaxed. Everything went smoothly and I felt very at ease - I chose the lomilomi which was perfect for what I needed. An awesome session that... More

I gave myself the gift of a Tandem Lomi, Lomi with Michael and Catherine. This is a 2-hour, deeply spiritual and healing massage that weaves, music, touch, movement and breathe to open up your soul. The experience was cleansing, uplifting and beautiful. Michael and Catherine work in harmony with passion and care for their clients. Their space is warm, thoughtfully... More

Back in Touch is a perfect little retreat in Surf City. The owners, Michael and Catherine, are so passionate about their business and their energy just emanates from this beach haven. Michael is such a talented massage therapist with a healing touch and positive and energetic energy. I have yet to experience Lomi Lomi massage but this is one of... More
