Hello! My name is Katie Parisou, I am a licensed massage therapist in State College, PA. I ABSOLUTELY love what I do!! I would love to share my skills with you.
I hold an Applied Associates Degree in Massage Therapy and am licensed to practice massage therapy in both New York (018208) and Pennsylvania (MSG001162). I became self-employed in 2011, and since then I have been fortunate enough to meet some wonderful people, and gain an amazing group of clients.
My office is in an amazing space on S. Atherton Street, in State College, PA at the Heritage Run Office Center. As the owner of my own practice, I feel that it provides me the freedom to offer the services that I are paramount to who I am and what I believe I can give to others.
The biggest focus of my practice is “resolving the issues in your tissues.” What this means can change on a daily basis. The majority of the massage that I perform is what I consider “restorative massage”. This means that I use my considerable skills to help you with what your body needs. I am trained in SMRT (Spontaneous Muscle Release Technique), Lymphatic, Swedish, Oncology, Medicupping Vacutherapy, and Orthopedic massage.
So many people these days are going through their days/weeks/years with numerous aches and pains. I believe that regular bodywork can help reduce their discomfort, allowing my clients to live a healthy, happier, and more productive life.
If it isn't already clear, I am so grateful that I get to do what I love every single day. I look forward to meeting you, to share with you the amazing gift of massage.
