Meet Kassia

Kassia Arbabi blends her natural talent at finding tight spots with her training in therapeutic massage to help people relieve chronic pain. Her slow, intentional approach also promotes relaxation. By staying present with her clients needs, she is able to focus in on a problem area to do a comprehensive and thorough treatment. She believes that our bodies have an inherent health and vitality that sometimes gets lost in the midst of pain, injury, or the busyness of life. Her touch is warm yet firm.

Kassia works with a variety of clients, but she specializes in helping women who live with chronic pain. She has a lot of experience working with people who have chronic and widespread tender points. She loves working with people who value self-care and who want to incorporate massage as part of an overall health management plan.


Kassia has experience working with clients who have the following conditions:
Stress, anxiety, depression, PTSD, muscle pain/spasm, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, whiplash, headaches, TMJ, neck pain, SI joint dysfunction, sciatica, piriformis syndrome, back pain, shoulder pain, tendinitis, carpal tunnel, plantar fasciitis, rheumatoid arthritis, scar tissue, EDS/hypermobility, pre-natal, and more…

I’m a high stress person, and my mind keeps me awake at night. Thirty minutes with Kassia and I’m out. I wake up drooling and relaxed from head to toe. She has also helped get the mobility back in my arm after I broke my elbow this spring.

I sought out massage to help relieve back pain. Kassia has an incredible knowledge base and uses varying levels of pressure to address the areas of my back where I have tension and pain. I have experienced significant improvement since incorporating massage into my treatment regime.
