About Katoka Massage Therapy
How We Started

Hi I'm Isabelle le Goaëc, the owner of Katoka Massage Therapy. After 12 years of 10-15 hour days in the financial industry, organising events and financial roadshows, I decided it was high time to leave behind this high pressure, stress-inducing environment and retrain in my childhood passion: massage therapy.  From the get-go, my unwavering purpose has been to help people who, like me in my previous career, are working in a sedentary office environment and don't seem to find the time to :


  • ​Address their aches and pains or

  • Mentally switch off due to a busy schedule.

Specialising in Acupressure Chair Massage enables me and my team to make a difference in people's lives. Making people feel better in minutes is my drive !

In an hour, one to three people can have On-site Acupressure Chair Massages. The massage session’s length can vary. You may choose from 20, 30, 45 or 60 minutes per person. Minimum booking is two hours. For fairs we can do shorter massage sessions.
