About Me: Aloha! I am born and raised in Phoenix, AZ and am one of 7 children! I have always been the massage therapist of the family, so it was no surprise when I became an actual licensed massage therapist at 19. I absolutely love massage therapy work and consider myself very blessed to love what I do! I am constantly growing and learning more about personal development and always want to provide a comfortable and safe space for each client and person I associate myself with.
What Massage Means To Me: I love massage therapy because I love helping people and I believe that massage is such a holistic approach to therapy. I believe in treating the whole body, mind, and spirit and massage therapy is the gift I was given to treat and serve my community.
My Education And Training:
- License in Massage Therapy from Arizona School of Massage Therapy 2008
- Qi Gong training 2009
- Reflexology Advanced Training – continued education 2010
- Infant and prenatal massage – continued education 2014
- Reiki master 2020
Specialties: I am passionate about energy modalities such as reflexology and reiki. I believe these modalities treat the whole human and are so helpful! I also love providing full body relaxation including some stretching. Customizing experiences are always the goal and listening to chief complaints and addressing them is my goal always.
My Favorite Services:
- Body Wrap: experience a body wrap! Trust me! Your skin and body feels so nice and rejuvenated and it is so relaxing
- Classic Couples’ Massage: full body relaxation with someone you love and cherish is such a wonderful experience and highly recommended!

I absolutely love this place! I haven’t had a bad experience yet. Carissa was wonderful and thorough with my massage. She hit every point I needed and then some. She made me feel wonderful physically and mentally after a rough couple weeks."

I had a wonderful experience here! Small and comforting spa like setting. I received a scrub wrap followed by the Lomi Lomi massage from Carissa. She was professional, friendly, very personable and made the whole experience enjoyable and seamless from beginning to end!"

5/25/2023- “I absolutely loved my experience! Carissa was so incredible and I will definitely be back! She gave me the best lomi lomi massage and I highly recommend her! My back and neck had knots, the massage from Carissa helped big time. She is a true professional. She has magical hands and is such a miracle worker! I will be back! The room was secluded, private and clean. The shower room was so cool too.” Amanda D., YELP 5 Stars
