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


  • It was the best massage I've ever had!!

    Katie is extremely knowledgeable and adjusts her work to what the client desires. Highly recommend!

  • Katie did an awesome job! She really took time to work on my problem areas, but at the same time it was not painful at all. I came out of there feeling so relaxed.

    I liked that I felt looser when walking again at the end...my muscles weren't so stiff even in spite of the lower back pain.

  • Really helped relax my shoulders and upper back

    Great!

  • I enjoyed my first time massage with Katie very much and I will in the future as well !!!

    Got a half hour massage and feel like it barely loosened my muscles

  • Best massage I've had, hands down. I'll be booking regular appointments in the near future.

    Thank you Katie. Very nice to meet you.

Katie provides a skilled massage in a relaxing setting. She is professional, and offers nice touches like extra pillow support and a heated blanket in the winter. I've had Katie work on me to simply relax and rejuvenate, but also to recover from injury. I trust her expertise; she's adept and thoughtful as a massage therapist!

Fantastic massage! Great for stress relief and Katie really listens to your wishes. The table is extremely comfortable with pillows and warm blankets. The only thing that would make it better is to dim the lights and perhaps have some aromatherapy available for those that like it, as I know not everyone does like it

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.

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.

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!
