About Better Body & Beyond
I believe that every aspect of a person; body, mind and spirit can benefit from receiving massage therapy. My mission as a Licensed Massage Therapist is to treat my clients according to their specific needs. Each session is customized by integrating various modalities of massage to most benefit each client. I am committed to my personal growth and continuing education to offer more services to you.

My name is Tim Jansen, and I am a Licensed Massage Therapist.  I was drawn to massage therapy through a passion of helping others. I have over 9 years of experience and enjoy working with people and helping them improve their quality of life.

Back in 1997 I went to a business convention.  At this event there was a Massage Therapist there speaking about "The Importance of Touch."  After her talk she offered chair massages to those who wanted one.  My job at that time was as a customer service representative sitting behind a computer with a pair of headphones day after day.  This position had taken a toll on my body.  I also did work as an apartment caretaker.  The day-to-day duties of cleaning apartments, shoveling snow during the winter, and all other activities that the job entailed had also done its number on me.  After receiving my first chair massage I noticed that I had easier movement in my shoulders and the soreness in my lower back had all but disappeared.   From that point on I received massages on a regular basis.  In 2007 I moved to Kalamazoo from Minnesota to start a new chapter in my life.  One day I was driving and noticed a sign that read, “Professional Massage Training Starting Soon.”  My friend urged me to think about enrolling, and now I am glad I did.  

I am now happy to announce that my massage business is in operation.  I will strive to make my services as convenient as necessary for my customers.  I offer my massage therapy services to Portage, MI and the surrounding areas.
