Amanda Masula CMT Owner/Therapist
Amanda graduated from Chico Therapy Wellness Center as a Certified Massage Therapist in 1996. Her training includes Swedish Massage, Pre/post Natal, Soft Tissue Release, Shiatsu, Neuromuscular Therapy and Deep Tissue Massage. During her 20+ year career as a CMT she has worked at Chico Therapy Wellness Center and trained alongside chiropractors. Then in 2006 together with Kelly Waterbury and Emma Honan, they opened Chico Massage Studio. "Hi, I'm Amanda. After practicing for over 20 years giving a massage is like speaking a language of my own, like an instinctual knowing of what the body needs. I am grateful to be able to continue providing massage after so many years! I am also a mother, a vintage collector/re-seller, an artist, a gardener and a country music lover!"
Emma Honan CMT Owner/Therapist

Her training includes Swedish massage, deep tissue, sports massage, myofascial release and neurmuscular therapy. Emma also specializes in pre and post natal massage offering a wealth of knowledge to any mother to be! Her skill and gentle nature will put you immediately at ease in her hands.

Maria Gonzales CMT
My name is Maria Gonzales and I am a Certified Massage Therapist. For the last 11 years I have been living in the lovely town of Chico, CA. I love living here, and I love working as a massage therapist! I pursued my interest in massage and bodywork and attended Chico Therapy Wellness Center in 2009 where I graduated as a Certified Massage Therapist. I have been helping people through massage ever since! I listen to my clients' needs and customize the massage to best fit each and every client. I specialize in pain relief, stress relief, injuries, athletes, and pre-natal massage. I have been trained in multiple massage techniques including Swedish Massage, Neuromuscular Therapy, Deep Tissue, and Pre/Postnatal Massage. I am now also specializing in Cranioscral Therapy and Reiki. I am currently an independent contractor working inside of the lovely Chico Massage Studio. I really enjoy working in this relaxing and rejuvenating environment!
