Most people have experienced the muscle tension and soreness that you feel after a high intensity workout such as CrossFit. Foam rollers and lacrosse balls do a fair job at working out the knots, but sometimes you need a bit more. Massage therapy is an excellent tool for post-exercise recovery, or to prevent injury by easing pain and tension. Some benefits of massage include:
• Flushes out lactic acid that builds up in the muscles after physical activity, thus reducing soreness.
• Stretches muscles, fascia, and connective tissue, leading to better mobility and range of motion.
• Increases circulation and lymphatic drainage, which reduces inflammation and aids in healing.
We offer 30 minute spot treatment massages for specific ailments, and 60 minutes for a more thorough, therapeutic treatment, or if you’d just like a relaxing maintenance massage.
30 minute Spot Treatment – $30
60 minute Therapeutic or Maintenance – $60
