When it comes to sports massage, Cleveland has a bit of a shortage of places that truly give a deeply therapeutic massage that is designed to help clients to recover from exercise. Whether you are a world class athlete or a weekend jogger, a proper sports massage will target the specific areas of your body you stress depending on your sport of choice.
An excellent sports massage will:
- accelerate your progress in the gym
- help you excel at your sport
- greatly decrease the amount of time it takes you to recover from intense exercise
- reduce post-exercise or post-sport soreness
- flush out lactic acid and toxins
- help you feel like a brand new person (after you get off the massage table)
What We Specialize In
Since 2010, we have helped many clients with sports massage. We tend to do better though, with certain clients. We specialize in helping clients who are participating in Crossfit or P90X; competitive swimmers; Pilates and Yoga instructors; those who are exercising a lot at the gym or who are new to working out and who are very sore; runners – especially those preparing for marathons and half marathons; and exercise or dance instructors.
All of our sessions are fully customizable to your activity of sport. Every activity or sport requires the use of different muscle groups. We can either target your session, generally, to your activity or sport or we can target specific areas where you are having pain, discomfort, or muscle dysfunction.
We Take Recovery to a New Level
We are unusual in that we incorporate hot stone therapy into our sports massage sessions.
By enhancing our sessions with hot stone therapy, we are able to provide an environment for SUPER RECOVERY. The healing basalt stones really help the muscles to release quicker and the heat from the stones greatly increases the circulation in the area being worked. This helps the body to heal itself, helps to flush out lactic acid from the muscles, and takes post-workout recovery to a whole new level.
We also use a special spa product – a cooling gel – that allows us to accomplish deep muscle therapy. This combined with the hot stones and deep tissue helps clients to emerge with little to no pain and with much greater range of motion in their joints.
