What People Say About Katrina Koleto, LMT

Massage Clients:

"Katrina is probably the best therapist I have seen. I have seen her off and on for the last 5 years, and enjoy every single session. She gives great advice for strengthening and stretching my problem areas and let's me know the impact of not doing so. I plan to see her regularly." -N.A., Seattle

"Katrina is excellent.  I saw her pre- and post- neck surgery and she was extremely helpful in speeding along recovery and generally improving mobility and pain points.  Highly recommended." - T.H., Seattle

"I've been seeing Katrina for some time now and she is AMAZING. I've gotten many massages in the past but visiting Katrina for the first time was a game changer. Her incredible ability to understand your body is apparent and very unique. I have ongoing shoulder tightness from work and stress and her full body massages completely keep the pain at bay. This isn't just a light brushing massage, she'll actually work on untangling those knots and and bringing immediate relief. The atmosphere is super relaxing and soothing, the bed is nice and toasty and I've actually been so relaxed during the hour that I've drifted off in a state of half-asleep bliss. Can't recommend her enough!" -P.F., Seattle

"I had a massage last night with Katrina.  It was amazing!  She was able to alleviate pressure spots in my back without me feeling like I was in pain (for those of you who have knots in your back, you know what I mean)!  Her space was inviting and I was very very comfortable. I will most definitely be back!  :)" -S.N., Seattle

"When I was traveling through Seattle recently, I had the pleasure of getting a massage with Katrina. She is very professional, really good knowledge of the the body structures and gave my sore body a lot of relief. I will get another one next time I am in town! Do yourself a favor and treat yourself to a massage with Katrina..." -C. U., Berkeley

"Katrina was completely and totally professional from the minute I walked in the door.  We discussed the problem I was having (tightness and pulled muscles in legs / calves) and she made sure to focus on those areas during my massage.  In fact, she worked on my calves for so long to break up and loosen the muscle tissue that she asked if we could go ten minutes over for her to finish on the rest of my body!  I really appreciated her thoughtfulness and thoroughness during the massage, and her proactivity after the appointment, sending me videos on stretches and advice on how to make sure the issue would not recur. I'm not sure she does this for all clients, but because she knows I'm a "jazz guy," she had this solo piano / trio mix of ballads that was right on point and put me in a meditative zone where I was the most relaxed and stress-free I've been in recent memory. I have no hesitation whatsoever in referring anyone to Katrina / Bodhi Bodywork.  I'm looking forward to scheduling another appointment." -N.V., Seattle

"I regularly see Katrina - she is fantastic!  She is extremely knowledgeable, and always finds and fixes my problem spots - some which I didn't even know were there (mainly neck and back injuries and scar tissue due to a bad car accident ~5 years ago). I am very picky, and tried therapist after therapist before finally finding Katrina. My only concern is whether I will continue to get in regularly once everyone else discovers her! :)   A+" -A.S., Seattle

"There are so many great things to say about Katrina, she is very nice and truly cares about improving the health and wellness of her clients. Katrina is very professional and has a calm and welcoming energy. We talked about the various pains in my neck and back and she is very good at understanding the source of where the pain is coming from and what to work on to alleviate it. Just by feeling the areas I described were causing me pain she understood the physiology of the muscles and knows the techniques to help move and break up tension. Each time I go in for a massage I walk out with a smile, feeling very relaxed and relieved! I look forward to my next visit as always!" -C.C., Seattle

"Katrina sincerely cares about helping her clients. She has a gift for massage and really adapts her practice to fit your needs." -D.L., Seattle



Pet Sitting Clients:

"Katrina was amazing, she took wonderful care of both of our bulldogs as well as kept the house in great shape for when we got back! She sent plenty of pictures to keep us from missing them too much, and they clearly loved having her around. We'd rebook with her anyday!" -N.C., Seattle

"I give Katrina the highest recommendation possible. She is the most conscientious, pet focused, detail oriented, problem solving, caring person and our preferred pet sitter. We feel most comfortable away from home when we know Katrina is at home with our pets. She has taken care of our all our pets including guinea pigs, our elderly cat, healthy to elderly and infirmed Australian shepherds, rambunctious and ornery Jack Russel Terriers with individual care and concern. One time, there was an actual small electrical fire at our house while Katrina was pet sitting, and she handled this professionally and extremely well. I could go on and on. She is just the best." -M.M., Seattle

"Katrina did a wonderful job of caring for my pets while I was away. My dogs and cat seemed instantly at ease with her during our meet n greet, and and I felt confident booking her for a long weekend. My pets are all senior/special needs, and Katrina was comfortable caring for them and administering medications. I got updates & photos during my trip and came home to a clean house and happy pets. I will definitely book with her again." -L.M., Burien

"Katrina is a fantastic human being. She was compassionate, kind, responsible, communicative, generous. I cannot say enough good things about her. She left my place impeccable, sent scores of photos daily, stayed in communication when needed, and even made a beautiful vegan chowder and left me some. Very precious human." -J.W., Camano, WA

"Katrina is my favorite pet sitter! I have two cats and one dog. One of our cats requires a pill two times a day, which she handled flawlessly (cat pilling is a special skill!). I have fostered cats for the humane society volunteer for almost 20 years, and Katrina recommended a toy for my cat that I've never heard of, the Cat Dancer. My cat is obsessed with this toy and wants to play with it every day. The dog adores Katrina as much as the cat likes the cat dancer! Katrina's ability to connect with your pet and attend to their individual needs sets her apart from your average pet/house sitter. You can trust your pet will be well cared for, probably spoiled, while you are away." -J.K., Seattle

"Ahoy! Katrina is a top notch dog sitter! We have known her for many years and have always been happy that she can spend time with our elderly dog. Her attention to her charges is impeccable and to be honest the dog probably thinks she is much cooler than me! Highly recommend all around, you and your dog will be pleased." -C.P., Seattle

"Katrina and Kevin have sat for us twice now, and I wouldn't hesitate to have them back anytime. She is a top-notch professional for pet sitting amongst many other skills and gifts... Katrina is a step up because we really felt she truly loves our spoiled cat as we do. I imagine she is that loving to every pet, so if she and Kevin (also very kind) apply for your sit, grab them and you will feel very comfortable that they will care for everything and especially your beloved furry ones." -L.L., Alpine, OR

"Katrina and Kevin took great care of Ginger and Ellie. They got out for a couple daily walks and were relaxed and happy when we arrived home. They also took great care of the house and left it clean and sparkly (even the 1 mug in the dishwasher ;)) I would have them come watch the girls again anytime!" -C.J., Portland, OR

"Where to begin?! Katrina and Kevin were the best pet/house sitters that we could have ever hoped for. Opie, our English bulldog, clearly made a couple of new friends while we were away as evidenced by a couple of pix showing him snuggled up on the sofa enjoying the new-found attention. Katrina's vet experience was an added bonus, especially for Opie, as Katrina took some extra time and care to tend to Opie's troubled ears and eyes; we'd venture to say that we returned home to a healthier and and even happier little dog. Katrina kept a daily diary of her stay and shared the details with us upon our arrival home. Katrina and Kevin were quite respectful of our humble home, treating it as though it was their own; they even went so far as to replace much of the food and beverages they consumed during their stay even though there was no expectation that they do so...too kind! They also went above and beyond what was expected when our flight home was delayed by nearly a full day; Katrina and Kevin cheerfully stayed on to care for Opie for another day. If we could give them 6 stars instead of 5, we would! I hope others have the opportunity to meet Katrina and Kevin and to engage their pet/house care services." -K.R., Seattle, WA
