Bethlehem Massage's practitioners blend western massage techniques with eastern practices to promote balance and harmony in their clients. First visits typically begin with a consultation, during which a licensed therapist takes the time to understand individuals' medical histories and motivations for visiting. They draw from a buffet of services such as Swedish massage and hyper-specific doctor's-orders massage, before lavishing clients with focused bodywork that rewards the muscles for automatically flexing when photographed by traffic cameras. The facility's in-house acupuncturist also stands ready to target afflictions with a 4,000-year-old Chinese practice.
