Massage therapy is the manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons, and ligaments) to enhance a person’s health and well-being. There are many different injuries or disorders that massage therapy can help treat including temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ), ankle sprains and strains, headaches, carpel tunnel syndrome as well as general muscle soreness. Massage can help alleviate pain due to muscle imbalances.

Overuse injuries like tendonitis and IT band syndrome can be improved by massage therapy. Massage will help break down the scar tissue and improve tissue elasticity.
Regular massage will help you to retain flexibility while working out the kinks and knots that training and exercise create in your muscles. Tight muscles injure more easily and increasing flexibility is a great tool to prevent injuries.
Massage can help prevent and aid in recovery from sports injuries by helping to restore mobility and flexibility to injured muscle tissue.
We can help reduce tightness as a result of activities or everyday life, thus helping you perform more comfortably and effectively.
WORK WITH YOUR TRAINER
We work directly with your personal trainer to inform them as to what our findings are during our procedures. This will provide your trainer the feedback needed to strengthen and stretch the areas of your body to decrease recovery time.
TAILORED TO YOU
All of our treatments start with understanding you and your needs. This enables us to tailor the best treatment needed to provide recovery and guidance for when you leave our clinic.
