I was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska. My interest in massage began at a young age when I enjoyed helping relieve my mother’s migraines. I graduated from the Alaska Career College in 2014 with my certificate in Massage Therapy. I specialize in sports & orthopedic massage by using structural integration techniques including myofascial release, deep tissue, stretching, and joint capsule work I have experience working with professional bodybuilders, gymnasts, fighters, motocross, dancers, musicians and athletes of all levels. Outside of massage I enjoy performing salsa dancing, practicing acrobatic yoga, medical qi gong, cooking, reading, traveling, and almost everything outdoors.
Bodysmith provides Therapeutic & Orthopedic massage along with Kinesio Taping & Massage Cupping. We are located in downtown Anchorage near the corner of 4th and A.
The Kinesio Taping® Method is a definitive rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion as well as providing extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered within the clinical setting. KT tape Successfully treats a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological and other medical conditions.
A combination of Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue, and Sports Massage modalities
depending on the session goals at your location of choice for an onsite chair or table massage. A $20.00
fee will be added for travel within the Anchorage area.
VacuTherapies™ provide a wonderful bridge to the medical community, with special applications for pre- and post-surgery conditions, chiropractic and orthopedic work, conditions associated with Diabetes, Parkinson’s, Fibromyalgia, and much more. Results are fast and comfortable for the client and practitioner, and noticeably impressive to medical professionals. One of the most amazing aspects of this technique is the “separation” that the vacuum produces in tissue layers. This enables water absorption and renewed blood flow to undernourished and dehydrated tissue as well as the elimination of old waste and congestion. Along with the substantial health benefits of clearing old debris, the use of suction is invaluable in releasing soft tissue, scars and restricted fascia. Sports professionals are benefitting from the ease of recovery from injury or surgery and an increase in athletic performance, and major league sports teams are utilizing the therapy.

I use a combination of Myofascial Release, Joint Mobilization, Deep Tissue, Stretching and Soft Tissue Mobilization to release trigger points and balance your joints and fascia. Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.

“Ben is absolutely the best massage therapist I’ve ever been to. I really appreciate his attitude and methods – I always leave feeling calm and refreshed. Ben has a knack for finding the “trouble spots” and actually doing something about them, working to identify the source of the problem instead of focusing only on the symptom, I highly recommend him – worth every penny!”
– Brandi Rose
“It’s been a long time since I have felt that someone in the medical field really cared about my pain or had the knowledge to help me. I found that Mr. Smith is truly concerned with helping his patients become pain free. After only 1 session, the discomfort in my hip was much alleviated and I had a greater range of motion. Mr. Smith explained what he was doing and what was causing my pain.”
– L. Spencer
““I was fortunate to find Ben Smith about a year ago and have been using his services ever since. If you desire incredible body work for a specific ailment, or if you want a total body “tune-up” (my term for getting things back in working order), I can’t recommend anyone better than Ben, a professional massage therapist with knowledge and experience.”
– Pat Olsen
