Thank you so much Bethany for coming to Newark! I am looking forward to my next visit. I recommend all to come and experience massage by Bethany......she is THE BEST!

  • It was a very good experience and a superb massage. My knee feels so much better too!

    I started seeing Bethany as part of my grief therapy when my sister tragically passed in the plane crash in Akron in 2015. I was having some major anxiety and physical symptoms of such. I have been going back once a month since, and I must admit it has worked wonders for my emotional well-being, immune system, and an integral part of my self=care. I highly recommend her!

  • Massage was great and Bethany was very informative. This was my first massage and I was very comfortable would recommend her to all my family and friends.

  • My experience was great! I received the best massage I have ever had!! As well as tips on stretches to do to help my shoulders and posture, was given the ear beads to try for stress and anxiety and also discussed essential oils. I will be recommending Bethany to friends :) She was amazing and very nice!!

    This was first time I'd every got a massage and I've been in so much pain, being 7 months pregnant. Bethany made me feel comfortable and by the time I left I was in allot less pain. Already scheduled my next appointment.

It was a very nice massage, I enjoyed the atmosphere. Tried the cupping for the first time and I would try it again. Wasn't sure what it would be like, but it didn't hurt at all. I will most surely be booking another massage. With school 5 days a week and working 12 hr shifts on the other 2 days, I'm just a little stressed. Thanks again Bethany

Bethany you did an excellent job and I felt so good after I left. Thank you so much a lot of my pain is gone. However it might be a torn rotator cuff so that's probably why I didn't get rid of all my pain. But, I am definitely coming back once I figure out what's wrong with my shoulder
