About me

After 25 years in the corporate world, I quit my job and returned to school for massage, graduating in 2006 from the Lourdes Institute of Wholistic Studies in Collingswood , NJ.. In addition to my private practice in Merchantville, NJ, I have taught massage at 3 area massage schools.

I have worked in spa, gym, chiropractic and pain management settings and am certified in medical massage.

I am licensed in the state of New Jersey and I am a member of the Association of Bodyworkers and Massage Professionals (ABMP),

I have had 2 sessions with Ralph and both have been the best massages I have ever experienced. He is very professional and you feel comfortable in his care. – Susan T
Absolutely the BEST! I had been suffering from 4 bulging discs in my lower back, pain management and physical therapy did not work. I decided to try massage and chiropractic care, and it worked. Ralph worked wonders on my back; competent, caring and skilled, I would use no other massage therapist – Alan K
I met Ralph in 2009 when he began teaching massage in Wilmington, Delaware. Last year I couldn't find any anyone I knew locally to give me a massage and I remember Ralph telling me he had his own business so I made an appointment. Well I am now hooked and as unfortunate as it is to drive the distance for me it is so worth the drive. It's makes the experience much more than just having a massage, it's going somewhere special to have a massage and Ralph makes it unique and very relaxing. I love his home base set up with aromatherapy, a waterfall, flowers and branches you feel you've walked into this peaceful place where you can leave all your worries behind. When I leave I feel all the stress of the week has left my body, my muscles are relaxed and my mind has been cleansed. I would highly recommend anyone to get a massage by him if not just for the massage but for his use of hot stones it's incredible!! I will continue to make my trek to come back, it is so worth the trip!! - Ann S
Four years ago I began using Ralph as my massage therapist; definitely one of the best decisions I have ever made! Having a professional massage each month has been quite beneficial in reducing the effects that stress and chronic pain put on my body. Ralph always knows exactly what to do to undo the knots, how soft or firm the pressure needs to be and how to induce a wonderful state of relaxation. I especially love his thumb-work down my spine and the attention he gives to my neck and upper shoulders. He pays attention to details and knows which oil aromas appeal to me the most. My family wholeheartedly supports and encourages me to schedule the next session ~ they love it when I’m both stress and headache-free and able to just chill! And, yes, I have already booked my session for this month. – Patti L
Ralph Casciato has given me regular massages since 2008. His touch is effective, intuitive, and caring. I have a chronic shoulder condition, and Ralph's attentiveness and sensitivity have built trust between us. This in turn has deepened not only the massage experience, but its benefits to mind/body/soul. Quite simply, Ralph is terrific. – Kevin R
