About Me

 IMG_0732 2   My name is Babette Maiss and I came to the States 26 years ago, from Germany. I have been living in Chico for the past 22 years. About 18 years ago I decided to switch careers and become a Massage Practitioner.  I hold a Certification from the State of California.  My practice is geared more towards medical- therapeutic techniques. I have over 1000 hrs training, in Swedish, Deep Tissue, Neuromuscular Therapy, Sports Massage, Reflexology, Ortho- Bionomy, Prenatal and Lymphatic Massage. Using those different modalities helps several different issues, such as low back pain, sciatica, IT Band tightness or neck/shoulder problems. I recently became certified as a Lymphedema Therapist, being able to help a wide variety of issues, related to the Lymph System, using Manuel Lymph Drainage, Bandaging and Garment Fitting.

I love my work and look forward being able to help so many different people, making them feel better, sometimes even changing their life. I believe continuing education is very important and I always try to keep up with new training. That way I am able to use a wide variety of modalities. 

As a Lymphedema Therapist I am able to order custom fit garments from Juzo, Jovipak and Jobst. The Academy of Lymphatic Studies, where I did my training, also has garments available.

I share my office with an Acupuncturist, Dr Regina Dagorret, a Certified Colan Therapist, Maxine LeClerc , Michelle Hodge, Dc, offering Thermography and Hollie Swart, specializing in Holistic Skincare Oncology & Health Compromised Skincare
