Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Love your new place. Fabulous.

    Mr. Harris provided a great service. My muscles are much more relaxed.

  • Great price...fantastic massage!

    I love this place!

  • 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.

    The office was warm and inviting. Everything looked so new and pretty. I love the purple/gray paint and the white trim. The bathrooms were clean and tidy and the massage table was wide and nice and warm.

  • More pressure Darker room Heated table The water fountain needs to be more of a trickle (sounds like my husband peeing! Not soothing)

    Very soothing environment

  • Room was comfortable and clean.

Victor is very good at working the muscles and trouble spots. I like when a therapist tells me about areas they found that needed some extra attention. Shows me that they are not giving a "cookie cutter" massage to each client. They pay attention to what is happening with you. The one point I offer to Victor - for the neck - be sure to work at the very base of the scalp / top of the neck. I've noticed some therapists don't work that area but to me that's one of the prime spots that feels very good to have massaged. Victor did a great job on the base of the neck, shoulders, back, etc. Thank you Victor - great experience and I would definitely book with again.

The overall experience and professionalism was great. His knowledge of existing health issues was assuring.

Skilled touch. Very confident and worked on the areas that I needed. One of the most considerate therapist I have ever met. I'll be back!

Victor did a great job. He was very professional and did a great job helping me relax.

Victor provided a professional and skillful massage, paying close attention to tightness in muscles that he discovered He is quite gifted in providing massages using good clinical technique ( speaking from an RN, I know what I'm talking about!) I hope to be able to book another appointment in the near future with Victor! Thank you, Debbie Anderson

Victor is awesome! A little more training and experience, he will be one of the best!

Micaiah is very knowledgeable and can put an amazing amount of pressure on a trigger point for such a tiny person! Felt much better. I'll certainly be back.
by Katie on Aug 03
She was great!
by Anonymous on Aug 02
The pressure she used was too light and I kept waiting for her to ask me my preference but she never did. I didn't feel comfortable just speaking up.
by Andrea on Jul 02
She took the time to know my medical history and to make sure she knew my trouble areas. Used perfect pressure.
by Christine on May 14
Micaiah was amazing! She listened to me and made sure that I was comfortable at various times during the massage. I will definitely return and recommend better bodies massage to others!

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

Thank you for your kind and supportive feedback of our clinic. As a working school clinic, the open and light atmosphere allows students the opportunity to learn medical massage in a transparent and safe setting. When you visit again, please let your student know (they are learning!); they can increase the temperature of the table heater and apply more pressure. We appreciate your support of our program and hope to see you again soon!

Facilities noise, AC ducts, clients coming or going, did distract from the quiet, relaxing atmosphere. Maybe, have your students use a different room?

I have quite enjoyed the services I have had a BBMI. Always professional and always exactly what I need. I do recommend some aerial acoustic treatments, however--something over each room to capture the sound and draw attention away from the ceiling. Overall--great experience.

Not enough work on feet and glutes. My scar tissue on stomach was not touched. I had requested that. Nancy's techniques were good. Her character was strong.

Business response:

In a student massage clinic not all requests will be honored. The students are not licensed therapists. Clinic exists for students to perfect the skills they are learning in class.

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!
