Testimonials from a few of Bettyann's clients:
"Bettyann is an insightful body worker and draws upon many modalities and years of expertise which I value every time I work with her. She has the capacity to get to the source of an issue and not only helps shift things on a physical level but creates harmony on many other levels. I appreciate her capacity for listening to what is needed and recommending follow up practices and exercises to continue the momentum of healing that is initiated on her table. She is one of the best hands on practitioners I have ever worked with and highly recommend her."

“I’ve done Zero Balancing with Bettyann for several years. I found it to be a very gentle yet powerful technique. The technique itself is extremely gentle, and Bettyann is a very gentle, kind person with amazing hands and an extraordinary gift for healing. In Zero Balancing, Bettyann would support or apply light pressure to various parts of my body and the effect was a deep sense of unwinding or unraveling of tension and re-setting back to a more peaceful state, both physically and mentally. Zero Balancing was especially powerful for me in terms of imagery. During the session I would often have what I call “awake dreams,” where a very peaceful image would come into my mind, like I would often get the feeling of floating underwater.”

"March of 2010 I purchased an old cottage in the center of a village. It had not been updated in 40 years and after residing in it for almost a year the cottage just felt a little old and tired, even with new paint and removing old wallpaper. Change is challenging and even with the changes I was making I felt like I was living in someone else's space, so I asked Bettyann if she would perform a space clearing and blessing. She was very happy to do so and after the ceremony was over, the house felt brighter, like the cobwebs had been swept away. She also confirmed my feelings of the cottage, that its energy was good and it was a well grounded place. Bettyann is very respectful, very intuitive and I was thrilled with the results of her house blessing ceremony. "

"Bettyann is one of the most skilled massage therapists I have ever worked with and I have worked with many. She uses multiple massage techniques and modalities to best treat my bodies issues. She is gifted!"
~Marie L., Client since 2010
"I called Bettyann after a bad fall on ice. I had pain in my neck, shoulder and ribs. Although not debilitating, the fall limited me from working for two days.I had visited her previously, so I was already very happy with the zero balancing results she offers and her sensitivity to my chronic issues and daily regime. She took notes, incorporated previous visits, asked pertinent questions and then proceeded to give me a massage that was organized to fit my pain report and her findings. It was fabulous and most of all relieved the pain! I left feeling refreshed and quite free of aches with full rotation of my shoulder. I would highly recommend anyone to Forward Motion Massage for zero balancing, stress relief or a specific injury. Bettyann is a gifted massage expert with mastery, sensitivity and the quiet power to reconnect your whole body to be in tune.
PS With my eyes closed, I got a wonderful 'Aurora Borealis' of color as she worked."

"Bettyann is highly skilled at using massage therapy to treat injuries. Over a number of visits, she helped me to rehabilitate my back from back surgery that I had had done years before that I had never fully recovered from. In addition, she helped my daughter, who is a Division I college runner, recover from various running related injuries. Bettyann is extremely knowledgeable about massage therapy techniques and how to use those techniques to heal injuries. I highly recommend her."
