Welcome and Thank You for Being Here,


Welcome and Thank You for Being Here,

I was drawn to a career in Massage Therapy because I wanted to be of service to others. I have always been an empathetic person and I enjoy connecting with people in meaningful ways. I am so grateful for the satisfaction I receive helping others through therapeutic touch.

I attended the Utah College of Massage Therapy in 2004 and have been a Licensed Massage Therapist since 2005. I have been licensed in Utah, Alaska, and now in my home state of Ohio. My program included training in Swedish Massage, Sports and Russian Sports Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Structural Integration, Reflexology, Craniosacral Therapy, Acupressure, Seated Massage, and Hydrotherapy.  I draw from every area of my training to provide each client with an individualized treatment session.           

Immediately after graduation, I worked in the Chiropractic setting providing massasge therapy sessions as well as assisting the Doctors. I gained valuable experience working with clients suffering from a variety of chronic and accute painful conditions. 
Later, after the birth of my first son in 2006, I was drawn to study Pregnancy Massage. At this time I also became a certified Massage Doula. As a Massage Doula I support women physically and emotionally through their labor and birth experience. I have attended over 60 births as a doula and and apprentice midwife. I offer education and massage services to women throughout all stages of pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.

Most recently, I have been pursuing certification in Craniosacral Therapy. I have personally benefited from receiving CST to facilitate healing from childhood trauma. The healing effects of the CST treatments I have received have been very profound. I am so excited to continue to learn and practice this modality that offers so many amazing benefits for virtually everyone.

I am honored to serve you on your healing journey.


Please let me know if you have any questions about my services.  


Well wishes,

Bethany Stanley, LMT

I had my second massage with Bethany and asked for a deep's great!! The only negative is having to get up and leave instead of going to sleep when you are so relaxed at the end!

What a fantastic experience! I was definitely feeling the aches of pregnancy when I came in to see Bethany and I left feeling amazingly refreshed. The whole experience was relaxing from the moment I walked in. Bethany has a very easy going sense about her and it immediately put me at ease. The room was the right temperature and she knew just where to put the all the various pillows to take the pressure off all of my joints. She also knew exactly where to rub and just how much pressure to use. There was a good balance of peace and quiet and getting to chat. Sometimes massages can be a little awkward (having a stranger rub you down while you’re undressed beneath a blanket) but this was fantastic.
