Hello, If you are visiting Boquette you MUST book with Kitzie she is a natural and very professional. I am a mother of two young kids and I walked out of there, relaxed, grounded, peaceful and well looked after and ready to take on the world. I loved it so much I went back for another one.

I had a relaxation massage and facial. I have had lots of massages and this was definately one of the best. Very personalized, right down to the music I wanted to hear. Thank you. I will be back!

My wife and I found the absolute best massage in Boquete.Kitzie is very professional, compassionate and extremely good at massage. Much better massage than we received at another "upscale" spa in Boquete. If you want a great massage at a very reasonable price, we highly recommend Spa Boquete.

Located close to town, across from Hotel Oasis! My husband had a stiff neck for weeks and he was soooo happy when she finished. I was next and she relieved some sore muscles in my upper back and my feet. They were "Happy Feet" when we walked back to the hotel. Very pleasant and relaxing!

Kitzie is a small person but her hands are strong. I had a deep tissue massage and it was wonderful and helpful on my sore muscles. She first asked if I had areas where I wanted her to focus and then proceeded with an excellent massage. She's very conveniently located and reasonably priced - well worth a visit. Plus she... More

Kitzie's massage was the most thorough I've ever received. She covers every base, from your scalp to your toes. Add to that her pleasant demeanor, quiet studio, and professionalism! To be sure, she'll be sitting on her front patio calmly awaiting your arrival. Thank you, Kitzie for being good at what you do.

I have known Kitzie McKinney for more than 6 years and her massages have kept me going during my frequent visits to Boquete. After days of hikes and hard work, it always feels fantastic to be blessed by Kitzie's healing hands. (Thank you Kitzie for your wonderful spirit; this review comes from my heart.)

After a tiring day of hiking the Sendero los Quetzales, my husband and I decided to have massages with Kitzie McKinney, owner of Spa Boquete. I also indulged in a facial. She started out by asking if I had specific areas which needed attention (I did - my neck, shoulders, quads and hamstrings). She did a wonderful job getting the... More

Kitzie McKinney is a terrific and inexpensive masseuse in Boquete, located across the street from El Oasis Hotel. She's also an unusually articulate guide to local places and services. My questions led to useful answers and follow up emails with names, numbers, & websites. Plus she worked out kinks in my muscles from a very strenuous hike--and all this for... More

If you want to chill out in Boquete a good start would be a fabulous massage from the healing hands of Kitzie McKinney. She's not only fluent in English, French and Spanish but is also a very good listener. A brief description of what needs treatment and she focuses on it- using whatever method and pressure most comfortable: Swedish, deep... More
