A graduate of the Muscular Therapy Institute (Cambridge MA) with over 19 years of professional practice and continuing study, as well as Board Certification by the U.S. National Certifying Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) since 2000, Kitzie particularly enjoys transforming her clients’ wishes for their ideal spa experience into an individualized session that comes as close as possible to making it a reality.  A former academic with a PhD in French and Comparative Literature and 30 years of university-level experience teaching modern foreign languages and literatures (French and Spanish), she also loves encouraging clients to discover their own intuition and creativity, as well as positive ways to live their lives in health and happiness.

For an appointment, email (kmckinney(at)bentley.edu) or call (507) 6493-0486. When dialing from the U.S., the full number is 011 507 6493-0486.

Please leave a message if I don’t answer when you call.  As a courtesy to clients, when in a session, I don’t answer the phone.

Clients with appointments receive first priority. However, I’m happy to provide services if I’m available when you stop by.  The “last call” for appointment is usually 6 p.m.

As I attend to all clients personally,  I can serve only one client at a time.  There’s a small outdoor patio facing the Barú Volcano and also a spacious indoor waiting area with Wifi and a great view of the volcano for the person(s) accompanying you, or you can enjoy the lovely gardens of the Oasis Hotel’s Bar and Restaurant just across the street from the Spa.

Payment may be made in cash or by check from a local (Panamanian) bank.  Sorry, credit cards not accepted.

Kitzie is fantastic! Don't miss Spa Boquete!

“My husband and I did some research before coming to Boquete and saw that Kitzie of Spa Boquete was mentioned over and over as a highly rated massage therapist in the area. I emailed her from the U.S. and set up the appointment in advance. She was very responsive and accommodating to our schedule. My husband and I each got a 90 minute deep tissue massage. She is very thorough and works each part of your body, but will certainly tailor the massage to your particular likes and needs. She was excellent with feet and hands. She is trained in reflexology and also offers facials. She uses really nice oil that is good for your skin. Kitzie is a PhD and highly trained in her field. It would cost a fortune in the U.S. to have someone like her work on you. Here in Boquete, deep tissue for 90 minutes was only $65.”

Wonderful!

“Embarrassingly, being so far away from my usual cold, winter UK Christmas, I momentarily forgot it was actually Christmas Day and called to book a massage. Lucky for me Kitzie said she couldn't think of a better way to spend an hour of her afternoon.  She clearly loves what she does, freeing people of stress and pain and seeing them float away in a bubble of relaxation & calm. Kitzie asks you exactly what type of massage you're after and can tailor a raft of combinations of massage for different body parts depending on what you need.  I felt totally comfortable and light throughout.  I recommend paying Kitzie a visit in Boquete 100%. Wonderful lady. Wonderful (Christmas!) massage :)”

Best Masseuse/Healer in Boquete
"I have been going to Kitzie for bi-monthly deep tissue massages for three years. Her spa is an immaculate, peaceful and healing haven in downtown Boquete. Kitzie is a wise, smart, patient and nurturing human being. She listens to my needs, stays connected with me throughout the massage and makes sure everything is feeling right:  both inside and outside...Her work heals me, body, mind and spirit. Kitzie cares deeply for her clients and her practice. Hers is not a “one size fits all” massage.  Hers is not an assembly line spa.  Kitzie takes the time and care to make each and every massage personal and unique. Her personalized, loving care coupled with her extensive training and commitment make every massage the most special one!”

There Is a Reason She Is the #1 Masseuse in Boquete!
"My friends and I had WONDERFUL experiences at Kitzie's. She is a consummate professional. She does not overcrowd her schedule so she can give each customer her full attention and energy. She spends time consulting with you on your expectations and needs. She brings a spiritual and healing approach to her work. She offers a wide range of treatments at reasonable prices …She is conveniently located close to the center of town, just over the bridge, across from the Oasis Hotel. In addition, Kitzie was incredibly helpful making our overall trip to Boquete wonderful, providing great advice and tips on the town, restaurants, etc.  Go for the 90 minute massage - pure heaven on earth!”
