I look forward to my scheduled massage therapy every three weeks knowing that pain relief is the ultimate reward. I have suffered with chronic back pain for over 20 plus years. have undergone spinal fusion surgery and tried many different treatments for pain. Jackie conducts a full evaluation before treatment to insure that your pain is targeted with a variety of massage therapy techniques. She is a professional and is familiar with her clients’ needs. My therapy helps ease my pain and provides me with a relaxing treat! I highly recommend A Better Massage. You won’t be disappointed!

I have been going to Jackie now for over a year and LOVE my massages. She truly takes her job seriously, and treats me as an individual with my own unique needs. With her background in physical therapy, I get helpful advice whenever I ask for it. I am deeply grateful to Jackie for improving my life and showing me how to live with less pain and stiffness.

Joanne is professional, knowledgeable and caring. The scope of her knowledge shows in the results. I am more than pleased with the extent of my relief.
A Better Massage prides itself in being an Evidence Based Practice (EBP). Our clinical massage therapy practice is based on three essential components. The first component is that we stay current in research and gather accurate evidence which our massage therapists apply to each of their patient’s treatments. Secondly as an EBP, A Better Massage employs only massage therapists with considerable massage therapy and clinical experience. Therapists learn both hands on and communication skills to allow them the best opportunity to connect with their patients. Most important, our massage therapists always consider the values and needs of the patient. Through evidence-based bodywork, our massage therapists gain results for our patients and through their knowledge, guide patients to the best form of treatment for the patient’s specific injury or need.
It has been our experience over the years from talking with clients and potential clients that as much as they wanted to “try a massage,” they had too many unanswered questions and have been poorly “programmed” by the media and other sources. So they decide to wait…. And wait…. And wait.
A Better Massage wants to make it easy for you to begin your massage therapy treatments. A Better Massage provides an environment unlike any other. WE ARE NOT A SPA! Our office environment has a clinical sense with the feeling and warmth of your own living room. No incense, no fluffy slippers, no white robes, just great bodywork to get you back on your feet and into the game.
The aspiration of A Better Massage is to educate the community of the many benefits and types of clinical massage therapy that are available. We want people to understand the practicality of consistent clinical massage therapy treatments. It is our mission to help people understand why a preventative clinical massage therapy wellness program should be in the forefront of every individual’s health goals. There are a variety of clinical massage modalities accessible to you. It is our commitment to help you understand what clinical massage therapy is and decides what the best treatment is for your individual needs and to guide you in the direction you choose.
