Certified massage therapist Catherine Sisson leans on more than 1,000 hours of experience to coax tension from achy human hinges. During a 60-minute session, Catherine susses out chronic pain hiding in subterranean muscles with the firm pressure of deep-tissue techniques, or employs flowing Swedish strokes as anxiety melts away like a butter sculpture of Orville Redenbacher left outside in July. Patrons who opt for 90 minutes of bodywork may slacken sinews with a relaxing hot-stone massage. The smooth, heated stones rest over the body’s stiff musculature to improve blood circulation in stifled limbs or prepare patrons for the hot-potato national championship.
Spark of Life Massage Therapy
After Catherine Sisson went through surgery in 2007, she had trouble getting her health back. That changed when she began undergoing massage therapy, rolfing treatments, and physical therapy. After graduating from the Cortiva Massage Therapy School in Tucson, Catherine opened Spark of Life Massage Therapy to help her clients achieve the benefits that improved her quality of life. Her treatments range from relaxing hot-stone massages to shiatsu massage, which involves stretches and carefully applied pressure. Catherine also gives patrons tips on how to avoid back pain long after each visit and how to improve their posture—step one is to stop sleeping on a giant candy cane.
