Greetings and welcome to The Muscular Therapy Center—your destination for peacefulness and vitality through therapeutic massage care.
My name is Catherine Carija — that rhymes with “Aria” — as in singing! I’ve been practicing massage for 25 years. Initially I trained in Cambridge, MA and certified under Ben Benjamin’s Muscular Therapy Institute. I then trained and certified under the Paul St. John’s Neuromuscular & Therapy Institute out of Florida.
After 25 years, the two modalities have melded together. My goal is to always listen to your needs and then listen to your body to meet those needs, whether for deep relaxation or for pain relief.
My favorite area to work with is the head, neck and shoulders because the area can be addressed from the front, the sides and the back. Because this area is so accessible, it is easy to be thorough and provide much needed relief from headaches, localized pain and discomfort, and limited range of motion.
