Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Great atmosphere, friendly service and wonderful experience especially for the affordable price.

    Ana did a wonderful job. I could feel how experienced and skilled she was. It was relieving how well she picked certain spots and my muscles just fell and relaxed. I do plan on future appointments.

  • Shemeka was great & very in tune with my body aches & pains. She was compassionate & kind. The school seems amazing & all the great things they do in their community!

    Ana has “good hands”, firm and strong without digging too deep, causing discomfort! I really enjoyed my time with her.

  • Shemeka did a very through job of asking what area's of concern I had. After explaining my problems, she did a great job of massaging out the kinks. I easy a very good experience.

    Everything was perfect from walking in to leaving out!!

  • Great massage!

    I love the atmosphere at Better Bodies but if there were one thing I would change it would be to diffuse the noise from outside of the massage room. I know that there is little that can be done concerning that because of the way that the rooms are partitioned, though. All in all, it is a great place and one I would recommend to others!

  • Like the place real professional.

    Nice place and made me feel relaxed professional staff. Will be going back.

Patience did a great job. I have had dozens of massages over the years and although, I have never had a bad massage, I have had some that were better than others. This was definitely in the category of "better than others". Patience will have no trouble building a loyal client base when she starts practicing!

Great hands, followed instructions for areas needing massage to the tee. I will be back.

She seemed to be intimidated about touching from my knees up while on my back. Was very careful not to massage the upper leg muscles. Rest of massage was good.

Shemeka was great! I think she needed to use a little more pressure but other then that, she did a great job!
by Lauren on Oct 18
Shemeka was amazing! I came in with neck pain that was radiating to my jaw and neck. She targeted the main area, but also addressed other areas that had tightened up because of my neck. She developed a whole body massage directed the left side of my neck and left me feeling incredible. It's hard to believe she is just a student! I most definitely received a professional level massage.
by Tessa on Sep 25
Shameka was incredibly professional and skilled. She listened to my requests and fulfilled my expectations for a professional massage. I am definitely going to be a returning client. The value for the cost is outstanding and I like knowing that I am helping a student realize her professional goals.

I think Better Bodies is a great place. It does have high ceilings that came sound to echo a bit but really don't think they can do anything about that. Its a nit picketing and not a huge issue.

The only drawback is the open door setup and I was a tad bit chilly, but really these are very minor concerns. I realize that this is a learning environment and the open aspect is necessary for proper instruction and supervision. Overall, an excellent experience.

I did not like how bright the room was. I much preferred the old location where rooms were darkened. Much easier to relax in that atmosphere. I also didn't like how I could hear competing music from other rooms, people talking, and the phone ringing. It was all very distracting and made it difficult to relax.

Business response:

Thank you for your feedback of our student clinic; the open atmosphere allows students the opportunity to learn medical massage in a transparent and safe setting. I am sorry that it wasn't the experience that you expected. I personally invite you to visit again! The temperature of the table heater can be increased and students can apply more pressure. We also have eye masks for light sensitivity. We greatly appreciate your support of our program and hope to see you again soon. Leigh

Victor was 100% professional and totally put me at ease. I have had dozens of massages in many parts of the world. I won't say it was the best massage ever, but it was very good. He not only helped me with aches and pains, after 3 years of arm surgery, he helped me to not be afraid that massage would cause me pain. For that, I am grateful!
