Excellent! I scheduled more appointments. Is very attentive, does a fabulous job, a wonderful experience! I look forward to my next session. I've gone to other massage therapists & have been disappointed. I highly recommend Bodyworks By Bruce.

Bruce is very professional and good at what he is doing. He adjusts level of pressure accordingly to my liking. He also uses special cushion for pregnant woman for prenatal massages. I felt extremely relaxed after receiving the massage from him. I am pretty picky about massages but 100% satisfied with his service. I will go back for sure and would recommend him to anyone.

After living in Southern California for 20 years & having bi-monthly massages, I was a bit nervous to try a place back here in Iowa. I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived at Bodyworks By Bruce!! What a wonderful experience! Bruce was friendly, patient, & professional. The atmosphere he has set up is completely relaxing with low lighting, soft music, comfy table & soft towels & blankets. He listens & gives the massage that YOU want! So much stress relief!! I DEFINENTLY recommend trying one ( the 90 minute is the best! ) No matter what you are looking for in a massage, Bruce can & will leave you feeling amazing! Thanks for a lovely experience Bruce! I'm sold for life!

From Our Editors

What do a mainframe programmer and a massage therapist have in common? Both break down complex puzzles into their elemental parts and work toward solutions methodically. But for Bruce Morgan of Bodyworks By Bruce, a former engineer, no matter how long he worked with a particularly confounding programming problem and no matter how technically rewarding the project was, the human element of building relationships was missing.

That difference is what drew him into massage therapy. Whereas programming works within defined parameters, Bruce never knows what sort of puzzle he's going to solve when presented with a client suffering from pain. Before sessions, he consults with all clients extensively to get to know them and their symptoms, and encourages them to give feedback during sessions so that he can customize his approach. Shoulder pain, for example, may be symptomatic of a person compensating for damage in the ankles, which is why Bruce routinely delivers full-body massages. His training specialized in myofascial release and cross-fiber friction, whose strokes alternate between going with and against the muscle grain, and he uses these techniques to target problem areas.

Each client enjoys warmth in the private treatment room, both from a table warmer and the sage green shade of the walls. A salt lamp lends the room a relaxing glow, and Bon Vital all-natural lotion keeps skin hydrated. To set the soundtrack for their session, clients can select from a range of light jazz, Native American music, or nature sounds, including a chorus of dolphins covering Barry White songs.
