Massage Services

BHBT massage services are suited to best fit your needs. We can focus on one specific massage type, or combine multiple types to create a custom treatment plan just for you.


Similar to trigger point therapy, acupressure is used to find specific points in your muscles, called triggers. It uses pressure at those trigger points to allow your muscles to relax. Acupressure is very helpful as an alternative to acupuncture.


Deep tissue massage helps relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia. This type of massage is great if you experience consistent pain or injury, and/or if you are involved in heavy physical activity. It’s especially effective for athletes.


Also known as zone therapy, foot massage therapy is very beneficial because it works your muscles below the skin in certain zone patterns on your feet.


Raindrop therapy is healing technique that uses a sequence of pure essential oils to bring you total mental, physical and emotional balance. It combines aromatherapy, reflexology, massage and moist heat to create healing and cleansing throughout your body.


A form of Swedish massage, sports massage focuses on increasing your blood and lymphatic fluid flow, reducing and eliminating pain and increasing range of motion. There are four types you can choose from: pre-event, post-event, restorative and rehabilitative.


Using five styles of long, flowing strokes, Swedish massage helps to reduce your pain and joint stiffness. Also, if you suffer from poor circulation, Swedish massage helps boost your circulation. Some consider this the classic style of massage.


Therapeutic massage works with the muscles below your skin surface that attach to your tendons, ligaments and bones. This relaxing type of massage is most helpful to overall muscle health, because it helps to restore your body and reduces recovery time.


If you experience small contraction knots with pain frequently radiating from them, trigger point therapy can help ease your pain. These pain spots are often connected to broader and more distant areas of pain that can be eased by attention to the trigger point.


In addition to massage services, Better Health Body Therapy sells a variety of products centered around wellness. You can purchase Young Living World essential oils, as well Better Health Body Therapy gift certificates in our online shop.

If you have a question about a massage type, or if you are interested in booking an appointment for one of the services listed above, please get in touch.
