Best thing we forgot to ask: BEST
Best Massage Therapist
Bethany Chabot at Bethany Chabot Massage Therapy
By Angie Sykeny
Bethany Chabot always knew she had the magic touch. Growing up, she became famous in her family for giving the best massages. Massage therapy is her calling, she said, and not a day goes by that she doesn’t love her work at her private practice in Merrimack, connected to Family Chiropractic of Merrimack & Wellness Center.
Chabot started her career in graphic design, but upon being offered a voluntary layoff she decided to pursue her first passion, massage therapy. After a year of massage therapy training by day and bartending by night, she received her certification and started working out of a chiropractic office on the Seacoast, where she stayed for a couple of years before relocating to her current job. She’s been there for the last 11 years.
“It’s something innate inside me, something I was meant to do,” she said. “Once I was able to take the opportunity to do it, there was no looking back. Every year since then has been a new journey.”
Chabot’s clientele includes runners with running-related injuries, office workers with shoulder and neck pain and tightness and people interested in health and wellness.
“I love helping people achieve their optimal wellness through the power of massage therapy,” Chabot said. “I want people to see that massage isn’t just a luxury or something in a spa setting … or a kind of reactive care. It’s beneficial to incorporate it into regular, everyday health care so that you can be proactive and keep yourself from getting injured in the first place.”
Chabot sees 15 to 20 clients a week but is in the process of expanding her hours to accommodate more clients. There’s currently an eight- to 12-week waitlist to get an appointment with her.
“It’s a problem, but a good problem to have,” she said. “I’ve been told it’s worth the wait.”
When Chabot meets with a new client, she talks with them about their concerns to determine what kind of massage will benefit them. She does a variety, including musculoskeletal release, neuromuscular, deep tissue, myofascial release, reiki, cupping, trigger point and acupuncture, and massage incorporating essential oils.
Before beginning the massage, Chabot closes her eyes and performs a scan of the body with her hands.
“I have to learn each person’s body, because every body is different,” she said. “Closing my eyes allows me to really immerse myself in the body’s energy and the way it feels, and to let the body talk to me through my hands.”
Clients can opt for a 60-, 75- or 90-minute session and typically return once a month. At the end of each session, Chabot will share personalized tips with the client about how they can continue the care on their own with things like epsom salt soaks, essential oils, proper hydration and stretches.
As for winning the “Best” title as Best Massage Therapist in the Hippo Best of’s Best Thing We Forgot to Ask About category, Chabot said she feels blessed to have such a loyal clientele.
“There’s a level of trust when someone puts their body on my table. It’s a relationship and a partnership,” she said. “I’m honored that my clients have that kind of trust in me, and that they felt like I deserved their vote.”

Practitioner for the Arts.
October of 2013 to Current
I have been blessed through word of mouth networking to have had opportunities to work as a private contracted massage therapist and body worker with preforming arts behind the scenes. We are hired to keep the artists going on for the show. Those who utilize this service is vast, from the circus to theater, music of all kinds and everything in between. I am humbled with every unique experience and feel rejuvenated only fueling my passion even more. I am honored to enable everyone to be at their optimal best by connecting them with my craft on a cellular and energetic level, allowing their bodies natural ability innate to heal itself. I had one client tell me, that the session was so powerful they felt it went beyond their receiving it and was going to bring joy to the next audiences for months to come. Which brought me to tears in later reflection. I am truly in a full circle of appreciation and love, I have loved the preforming arts entertainment of all kinds as long as I can remember. You see a side note, for me; to be able to give back is one of my root foundation principals. We came from a strong ass mother who did right by us and the best she could with the hand we were dealt. I have worked hard for every thing I know to be true in my life and that is all thanks to the woman who raised me, in turn it made me the woman I am today. So for me to have the opportunity to come full circle and give back to another generation of entertainers and preforming artist with my professional skill set is nothing short of karma. I truly believe the universe can provide.
This said, should you find the schedule blocked from time to time this is most likely the reason, though I choose to leave it at that for this topic of discussion please and thank you for your courtesy.
