Alyssa DeMille, Massage Therapist

Massage Therapy is a powerful way to de-stress the mind and body. I believe that the sense of touch is highly effective in promoting healing capabilities. My approach to massage therapy embodies compassion and a soothing touch.

I love to help people through massage; this is one of many ways I choose to assist others. I’ve been on the official path of Massage Therapy since 2013 and practicing for the last seven years providing multiple massage modalities.

Through listening to the body and thoughtful communication, I use a collaborative approach of reaching the specific goals of my clients. My style combines stretching to calm, reset, and relax the body. Flowing movement and specific muscle work is also utilized to help in the body’s natural healing. My intention and hope are that every guest will leave feeling renewed.

Massage Therapist

Suzy has been a massage therapist for 12 years. She graduated with an AS in Massage Therapy from Monterey Peninsula College in 2009. She started her career working at a doctor owned Physical Therapy Clinic in Monterey CA. This is where she mastered her neuromuscular touch and helped reduce common pain patterns from work, sports and past injury patterns. She improved her knowledge by working at franchises, with a Doctor of Osteopathy and various spas around San Jose, Santa Cruz, and Monterey. She wanted to add more knowledge to her massage education to help people unlock stuck pain patterns. The classes that gravitated towards her were Craniosacral Therapy, Reiki, Scar tissue Release, and Manual Lymphatic Drainage.

She moved to Sacramento to be closer to her close friends, and she enjoys hiking, being outdoors, and traveling. Her bucket list includes rock climbing/bouldering in Joshua Tree, learning to scuba dive, and going backpacking for her first time.

Katie Ochoa

Massage Therapist & Owner

Katie Ochoa
I am a medical and therapeutic massage therapist, specializing in chronic conditions, and I want to help you get rid of your pain!

I opened my own massage business so I could have the freedom to treat each client with a customized experience. No set routines or memorized scripts. Each client has their own needs and goals. Though I am traditionally trained in many different massage modalities, I have taken my love and knowledge of the human anatomy and kinesiology to create techniques that are effective and long lasting. I strive to make a positive experience and difference for each client in a setting that is relaxing and professional. I also competed in the World Massage Competition in June 2019!

My strong medical background sets me apart from other massage therapists.

I have a degree in Kinesiology and have been a massage therapist since 2002, which gives me a lot of experience to draw to further help me discover what each individual’s body is doing and what could be the cause for that person’s pain or complaints. I have taught Kinesiology, A&P, and multiple massage modalities at Truckee Meadows Community College. I am a giant nerd about the human body and love to read the latest research about all things human anatomy. I am currently going to school for a Masters in Kinesiology.
