Welcome to Balanced Bodywork in La Crosse!
We are a locally-owned massage therapy and bodywork clinic since 2009, dedicated to serving our community and our profession in enjoying healthy, balanced lives.
We don't just “do massage”. Providing the best service and care isn't just a job to us, and it's more than our career. It's a way of life and a choice we are here to make with you each time you visit.
We value our team and our clientele, and we don't stop ten minutes short of a full service. You get your full hour, and our employee's get paid a full living for the amazing work you know they do every day.
Every client is unique. Every therapist is unique. Every session is unique.
We acknowledge and honor this.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit us!

Sustainable, Ethical, Green Practices
Balanced Bodywork is dedicated to green, sustainable, and ethical practices and the use of organic, non-toxic products.
We purchase and support local, organic, and fair-trade whenever possible, at our clinic and in our homes.
This includes all of our massage and bodywork supplies, cleaning supplies, and laundry, as well as all of the yummy chocolates, teas, coffee, and snacks in our staff and waiting areas!
Why Fair Trade and organic? Because every purchase matters!
Our Non-Toxic Clinic
Our Clinic strives to maintain a safe, non-toxic environment by only using quality products and cleaning supplies, free of petrochemical derivatives, artificial fragrances, etc.
Many people are sensitive to ingredients and artificial fragrances commonly found in personal care and cleaning products.
All employees and guests are asked to refrain from wearing perfume, cologne, cosmetics, hair spray and other scented personal products.
Do You Know What's In That? Is It Safe?
We've Got Your Back!
In 2012, our neighbor at LAXprint and Aquilla Solar, Kevin Fisk, installed a 39,750 kW Solar Array of 159 panels on our building.
The annual power produced exceeds our usage, and all of that extra environmentally-friendly, solar-generated power goes back into the grid!
We get all of our brochures, signs, cards, posters, banners, etc printed with local solar power right next door at LAXprint.
