I am a professional, Nationally Certified Massage Therapist & Licensed Esthetician. I went to The Nevada School of Massage Therapy and graduated in 2007 with 800+ hours. I also graduated from Marinello School of Beauty in 2012 and received my license in Esthetics. I have several years experience doing facials, chemical peels of various kinds and waxing for both men and women.

I use Image professional skincare products, attend monthly continuing education classes. I am dedicated to providing my customers with the highest quality and integrity of service.

To be nationally certified, a therapist must:

  • Demonstrate mastery of core skills and knowledge
  • Complete 500+ hours of massage education
  • Pass a NCBTMB standardized exam
  • Uphold the organization's Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics
  • Take part in continuing education

Massage therapy is not regulated in every state, so it is important that you look for the national certification seal. It is your assurance of a competent and qualified practitioner. I am proud to say that I am one of only a few massage therapists in the Fresno area that have this certification.

Cathy is great! She is both friendly and professional. Her massages are excellent. She is good about asking about your preference for pressure and any trouble areas you may be having. The ambiance in the office is very soothing and relaxing. Her 60 min Swedish massages are great but do yourself a favor and treat yourself to a 90 minute hot stone. It is worth it.

I have suffered with Fibromyalgia symptoms for over eight years, tried many different massage therapists and have found Cathy Abbott to give me by far the best experience. I can go in with my muscles feeling heavy and achy and will leave her massage table without the pain and feeling so much better. I have been seeing her every other week for over a year and recommend her highly to anyone who has to deal with a Fibromyalgia diagnosis.

I have received massages from Cathy since she opened Soothing Touch. Her waiting room and treatment area are comfortable and inviting. Cathy is a true professional - she has a great touch for either relaxation or deep tissue massage and really listens to fulfill the needs of her clients. I have referred my friends to her, and will continue to do so!
