Phila Massages is proud to count as part of its team the finest massage therapists of the area. All of our therapists are passionate and specialized in sports massage, and keep their licensure, education, certifications and insurances up to date.


Natacha is a sports massage therapist 10-11 months a year in Philadelphia, and an orthopedic physical therapist 1-2 months a year in France. Her international background (she is originally French-Zambian), paramedical training and interest in science-based medicine research, in the world of sports, all contribute to help her discern true and proven techniques from fads or inefficient ones. As such, she serves as the technical lead of the team and has successfully accompanied athletes through their training or injuries since 2008. In the past a dancer and martial arts aficionado, you might now see her running along the tow path with her dog or enjoying the local parks with her husband and 2 children.
