Our Massage Therapists

Kat Rose

                 Kat graduated massage training with honors in 2008 from Remington College. She has lived in San Diego for the past 26+ years and loves everything it has to offer. After attending massage school, she found a love of sports that ranged from beach volleyball, weight lifting, running, hiking and Jiu Jitsu. Due to her love of massage, she has scaled back to just weight lifting and a variety of cardio, so she can continue a long career in this field.

                 She has worked in the high end spa industry for the past 7+ years and has had experience in clinical based massage as well. With over 10 years of massage experience she has ventured out on her own and hopes to bring the luxuries of the spa to her guests at W Salon & Spa. Her massages are intuitive based, but she listens tentatively to her guests needs. Every massage caters to the needs of each individual and ranges from complete relaxation, to a more focus based need to relieve aches and pains of everyday life and/or rigorous sports training.

      Kat offers chair massage, full body massage, foot scrubs, and soon, body wraps. Traditionally based western style massages (Swedish, deep tissue, therapeutic, reflexology, aromatherapy) are offered, but Kat’s massage style incorporates all her training and skill in your service. She looks forward to working with you to achieve your massage goals.
