About Us

My name is Katie Parisou, and I have been a licensed massage therapist since 2005. Originally from NY, I now reside in Pleasant Gap, PA, with my handyman husband and our dog and cat "kids".

I hold an Applied Associates Degree in Massage Therapy and am licensed to practice massage therapy in both New York and Pennsylvania. 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, at the Heritage Run Office Center. Since moving into this space, I have been able to truly focus on what type of work I really want to do, with the freedom to offer the services that I feel are paramount to who I am and what I believe I can give to ot... more

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Lower back massage, relieved a lot of tightness and discomfort. Excellent!!! I'll be back.

    Katie understood my physical needs to help the healing of my knee replacement, yet took time at the end to also give me a relaxing back and neck massage. Although we talked during the part of the massage that dealt with my knee, the relaxation part was quiet which I really appreciated.

  • This was my first massage and it was amazing!! I am feeling better and can not wait until my next visit.

    Katie is always so responsive and thoughtful. Love every session!

  • Katie, you knew just what spots to tackle.

    I met Katie when my daughter had an appointment in the same building. Never having had a massage before I thought... I should try a massage rather than just sitting around waiting. That was three years ago. My daughter no longer has appointments in that building, but I do. Once every two weeks with Katie. What a great way to relieve stress and get the kinks out of these overused muscles. Thanks Katie. You're the best.

  • Great!

    I have always loved coming to my appointment with Katie but this time was special. I had just had a medical procedure performed under anesthesia and they must have positioned me unfavorably while I was out. I woke up with pain in my hip and lower back. I immediately reached out to Katie who offered to see me that very day. I felt immediate relief after our session and the following day was pain free. Thanks so very much, Katie. You made a trying day much brighter! You rock!

  • Great job as usual! Thank you so much!

    Thanks Katie!
