Betsy has been a massage therapist in the Charlotte area since February 2007. She’s worked full-time for two large massage offices and has previously owned her own mobile massage business.

She has worked with a range of clients, including professional athletes with sports-related injuries, pregnant women, and professionals with pains often caused by sedentary office work.

Originally from Chapel Hill, N.C., Betsy relocated to Charlotte in 1998 to be closer to her family. She’s a graduate of the University of North Carolina Charlotte and holds a bachelor’s degree in fine art. She still enjoys painting and various forms of art. 

But, she discovered her passion for massage and helping others after she experienced a fall in 2005 that caused her to have a herniated disk and a back injury. Massage therapy was the most effective way to manage the pain from her back injury.

Consistent therapeutic massage, combined with a lifestyle focused on health and wellness, was the key for Betsy alleviating her pain from the injury.

After experiencing the immediate benefits of massage, Betsy decided to become a licensed massage therapist. She graduated from the Southeastern School of Neuromuscular and Massage Therapy (now called the Southeastern Institute) in February 2007. 

Betsy cares deeply about delivering individualized care to each client through a personalized plan to respond to a range of needs. Her tailored treatments help clients who experience lower and upper back problems, tension, and muscle pains.

I love that a pre-book massage is more economical. Betsy really works with my schedule too. If something comes up and I cannot keep my original appointment she is flexible. I refuse to see anyone else for my massages.

Betsy is awesome and is one of the absolute best massage therapists I’ve seen, and that’s saying something since I work in the Wellness Industry. I’ve been seeing Betsy every week since the first time I went to her. She is very thorough with sanitation and is transparent about her current procedures which is important right now. She always focuses on the needs for the session and takes time to listen before the massage. She always answers my questions and I’m never left wondering why she wants to do a certain kind of work (stretching, structural, Swedish, etc). I drive about 45 minutes out of my way to see her every week, and it is well worth it!

Betsy really listens well to my concerns and is able to target specific issues effectively. I play a lot of tennis, and her treatment is enabling me to be more fluid in my movements, have greater flexibility, and improve my posture.
