In 1985, founder Betsy Breckels was a single Mom of a toddler. She was very ready to get back to work, and she wanted to have a flexible job that was something she could believe in. The next week she started in massage school. Thanks to the good people of the State of Michigan and the Career Development Center; Breckels Massage Therapy was on its way

The first Breckels Massage Therapy studio was on East Warren in Detroit. After relocating the business to Jefferson in the Park and Kercheval on the Hill, Betsy purchased the current building on Mack Avenue in 2004, which features six beautiful treatment rooms.

Betsy now employs excellent massage therapists, two receptionists, and her son; who does the janitorial work for the business.
