Catherine Allison (better known as Cat) went to Northern Virginia School of Therapeutic Massage located in Falls Church Virginia where she completed her massage therapy certification in March 2009. Prior to massage school, Cat graduated from West Chester University with a BS in Professional Studies that included a minor in Psychology and a minor in Behavioral Health Science. Afterwards, she continued on to graduate school for Counseling Psychology but realized that her passion was in helping people through massage therapy. She has been a massage therapist now for 10 years and has spent most of that time working with chiropractors in and around Philadelphia. Cat believes deeply in the mind body connection and loves helping people relieve pain and stress. She enjoys customizing each massage for every person on the table, honoring that every body is unique with different needs. She likes to incorporate Swedish, deep tissue, trigger point, and craniosacral methods in her sessions. In her spare time, Cat enjoys reading, being outside when the weather is warm, and hanging out and playing with her six year old son.
