Kind Words

"I felt AMAZING after my session with Cat! It is beyond deep tissue, you get completely squeezed out. Honestly, it was an utterly superlative session in every way. Very different from any other body work I have had. Cat is a master."Jodeen Revere, Thai Massage Therapist/Yoga Instructor


"Cat Caruso is a wonder-working magic-maker of extraordinary insight, skill, and heart. I'm consistently gobsmacked by her massages, which feel like a unique blend of healthful bodywork, deep emotional clearing, and soulful realignment. The experience on the table is beyond exquisite (those "ohmygodpleaseletitneverstop" moments), and the benefits last and last. I walk out of her studio feeling like I've discovered the secret to actually feeling human again: grounded, light, relaxed, clear, and nourished. Truly, working with her tops my personal list of self-care. This woman is gifted beyond words."  Angela R. of Sexy, Saavy Copy regarding Signature Sessions


"Your bodywork is deep, whole, nurturing, and intoxicating!"  Elisa Barber, LMT & Massage Instructor regarding Ashiatsu


"The old patterns of reactivity, impatience, frustration are simply gone...there is a slight pause, I notice the possibilities and then choose to simply let the moment unfold without fussing..amazing! Thank YOU awesome woman."  Kate, Rockstar Momma & Cafe owner regarding Access Bars


"Wow, was I tired! I had no idea how deeply exhausted I was! How much I needed that!! I feel so nurtured and rested. Revived. I feel like I just took my first deep breath in weeks and have my feet back under me. Like I had my reset button pushed. I'm ready to shift into the next step of what lies ahead as a mom to this little human I just birthed." Julie P, Wellness practitioner & Momma of 2 about Postpartum Massage


“It is not so much the different skill sets that Cat draws from when she works on you. It is that no matter where you start in a session with her, she uses her skills in combination with instincts and natural healing capacities to bring you back to a state of renewal. There are some people that are good at what they do in their work and some that are natural healers. Cat is the latter.”  Raven W, Matrix Leadership Institute for Signature Sessions


"When Cat suggested I try Ashiatsu, I was skeptical. "Deep tissue isn't my thing," I reminded her. She promised I'd like it, I thought I might tolerate it...barely. But she was right. It was fantastic. Finally, a deep tissue massage that doesn't involve specific, pokey work, but rather, work that is even-pressured and smooth--and dare I say, relaxing AND therapeutic!"   Franklin Snuggs, Bozeman talking about Ashiatsu Deepfeet Massage


"I am an experienced bodywork practitioner and coach and when my schedule is full, it is rare to be able to confidently recommend a colleague to my clients. Cat is my personal go-to bodyworker and she delivers equally excellent service to my clients. Cat's work has the perfect blend of classy skills, intuitive guidance, and magical wonder."   Suzanne M., Massage Therapist & Coach Extraordinaire regarding Deep Dive Sessions

“At 41 weeks pregnant, I was very uncomfortable and anxious for the arrival of my little one. I had been having false labor and was also 3 cm dilated for 3 weeks. I was unable to sleep and was just plain worn out. At my 41 week appointment, the nurse practitioner suggested that my body needed to relax before the baby would come and suggested that I do anything possible to just care for myself and relax. She recommended getting a massage. I was scheduled for an induction the following week, but really wanted things to progress as naturally as possible, but really wanted things to progress as naturally as possible. Cat came highly recommended. My husband called and scheduled an appointment for the following day. The massage I received was fantastic. I left feeling so refreshed; it was by far the best prenatal massage of all.
The added bonus to leaving Cat's feeling relaxed and refreshed was that I went into labor 12 hours later; she asked if I wanted her to work on areas that might encourage labor and I'm so glad I said yes!  
I enjoyed the massage from Cat so much that after the arrival of the baby I wanted another one to help recover from labor. I also wanted to show my husband my appreciation for all the hard work he did helping me through it. My husband and I both got massages the following week. It made such a great difference! 
I would recommend Cat to anyone and everyone, pregnant or not, but she really seems to have a gift for understanding the special needs of pre-natal and post-natal women and their partners.”  Melissa F, Prenatal and Postpartum Massage

“I consider myself a massage snob, having been to the best of the best in extreme physical and emotional states, and Cat is exceptional even amongst these talented few. Her use of the tuning forks to realign and reopen meridians and tap into the more energetic and spiritual aspects of healing further set her apart…I highly recommend Cat as a facilitator of health and wellness. Her ability to work on all levels and her steadfast solidity as a human being are sure to be a valuable part to the overall well-being of people seeking growth and change.”  Ali G, Dancer and Wonderful Human regarding Signature Sessions


"Cat is superb at providing a relaxing and skilled massage for a pregnant body. She is able to identify a balance of supporting a big belly and  baby, while allowing the rest of the body to relax and melt. I continue with postpartum bodywork with Cat to find some recovery and time of relaxation as a new mama. Cat is great at identifying what ails the new mama body."  Sarah O, regarding Prenatal and Postpartum Massage


"Cat has a thorough, integrated approach to her bodywork which leaves you feeling whole and attended to both physically and personally. As a fellow bodyworker I can attest to the rarity of that combination. She is highly trained and motivated to heal. She is my favorite!"  SJ, Massage Therapist & Dancer, for Signature Sessions

“My first pre-natal massage was when I was 5 months along. Cat was so welcoming before the massage I immediately began feeling comfortable and relaxed. The massage space was calming and just being in a room with Cat made me slip away into massage bliss. Cat is the first massage therapist I have met who has an incredibly gentle, yet firm touch and knows just what my pregnant body needs. My baby moved almost the entire massage and I’m going to take that as a sign that I should go back more often!”  Rachel L, sharing her experience with Prenatal Massage


“I wish I still lived in the same town as Cat. I’m never fully satisfied getting bodywork from other people since I worked with Cat. She has such a strong intuitive gift. She really is made for this work—finding ways to help others so they can leave her studio feeling so. much. better.”   Megan H, Social Media Guru about Signature Session


"I've seen Cat on and off over the last four years for bodywork. Cat can dig in; she will find those sore muscles and lovingly beat them into submission. Seeing her for deep tissue massages was wonderful. She came to know my body, where I store pain and tension in it, and how best to relieve it. I always knew that Cat was capable of so much more than just bodywork, but I wasn't ready for that. Recently, my life has been full of growth, change, and transformation. A few months ago I went to Cat for a massage with the intention of employing her "witchy," energy working intuition to help further the transformation I was experiencing. I was, of course, completely blown away. Cat barely did any traditional massage, but the healing and the release that came from that session (and the sessions since) were unmatched in any of the traditional bodywork she's done for me. When I'm on her table I'm wrapped in such profound love, care, and compassion that I can surrender everything and just be."   Alyssa M, referring to working her way from Signature to Deep Dive Sessions


“I left feeling more weightless than I'd felt in months - seriously - and with a newfound understanding of what I'd been going through. She helped me validate my emotions and lifted the stress from my body by facilitating some much needed "letting go". My neck was miraculously better for the next week straight, which was more relief than I'd had from any chiropractor, acupuncturist, or massage therapist in two months of suffering. And with my emotional issues pretty much resolved, I found myself more in love with my husband than I had been in a while. This may sound too good to be true, and I don't know if it'll affect everyone like this, but that's what it did for me!”   Neely Q, Nutritionist and Author talking about Access Bars


"What an amazing experience! At first I was unsure of what I was getting myself into. But I closed my eyes as we warmed up and soon I found myself in an extraordinary world--reconnecting to deeper, expansive, relaxed and playful pieces of me. Thank you!"  Kate C, Bozeman about Chakradance


"Cat is a highly skilled intuitive and healer. She creates a safe environment in which I felt comfortable physically and emotionally to receive her rich wisdom and feedback. This allowed me to personally listen to my own self and take a raw look inside in a new way. Cat provides practical, concrete suggestions to help me move through immediate challenges while also explaining the bigger picture to me. This allows me to make immediate change and take action while having more knowledge regarding the overarching view of my journey. Cat illuminates challenges and patterns, she speaks to them without judgment and sheds light on things in a way that makes them easily digestible. She clears them energetically, in such a way that lightens the weight of my concerns, turning problems into opportunities. Her gift of intuition has played a large role in my growth over the past year.
In many aspects of my life...emotional, physical, and spiritual
. Thanks, Cat!"  Laura N, HR Wizard regarding her Deep Dives  


”I received a prenatal and postpartum massage from Cat. Both times, Cat's healing touch eased discomfort and provided wonderful relaxation. My prenatal massage was reassuring and helped alleviate stress I was feeling as well as aches in my legs and back. The postpartum massage was nothing less than transformative: I felt as if I'd been put back together again! The massages I receive truly improved my physical and emotional well-being before and after giving birth to my beautiful son.”  Erin A, talking about Prenatal and Postpartum Massage


"Cat is an incredible body worker, she has an amazing way of using her intuition to heal both physical and emotional wounds. She creates space that allows me to drop into my own body and go on a journey that always brings insight and healing into my life. No journey is ever the is always a treat and a pleasure to receive a massage from Cat."  Katherine M, Access Bars Facilitator for the Deep Dive Sessions


“Cat’s work is intuitive, grounded, inspired, relaxing, strong, skillful, very detailed, and therapeutic. Cat is as skillful as she is intuitive. It is a rare and welcomed combination. She is truly gifted.”  Mikey R, Massage Therapist referring to Signature Sessions


“Cat is a phenomenal massage therapist! She goes beyond the physical and reaches you on a deeper energetic level. The combination of her massage, craniosacral and Acutonics skills allows her to touch her clients in a way that is unexplainable. I recommend her to all my friends.”  Chrissy R, Spa Manager referring to Signature Sessions


“From what I can tell, it is the combination of understanding the physical body, a blend of intuition with intelligence, the capacity to make people comfortable, the way she seamlessly blends styles, and her capacity to bridge the every day with the eccentric or “woo woo” stuff that sets her apart from other therapists.”  Tony, Chef, Milwaukee, WI about Signature Sessions


“Cat is quite gifted at working with the physical, emotional and energetic body to help encourage the natural state of balance within her clients. What she offers clients is a space for nourishment, deep relaxation, peace, insight, rejuvenation, and light-heartedness. I always look forward to the chance to be on her table.”  Peggy T, Reiki Master, regarding Deep Dives


"The Ashi session was awesome!!! It's pretty amazing work! It is very different from traditional massage…what ended up happening was that it got under my nervous system, creating a deeply relaxed state. Loved that!!! I was more relaxed than I have been in a long time post-massage! I was amazed how the deeper fascial layers were addressed to levels that traditional massage can't offer."  Tamara Gundrum, LMT & Massage Instructor regarding her first Ashiatsu
