Types of Massage
The most common type of massage found at spas, Swedish massage combines various hands-on techniques including gliding, kneading, and cross-fiber friction to break up adhesions, or muscle knots.
Ideal for treating injuries or as a preventative treatment, sports massage focuses on the health of muscle and connective tissue, range of movement, tone, symmetry, balance of muscle, and quality of posture.
Focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders. Some strokes used are the same as classic massage therapy, however, movement is slower and pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain.
Trigger Point Therapy
Specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. In Trigger Point Therapy massage, the recipient actively participates through deep breathing as well as identifying the exact location and intensity of the discomfort.
Massage Room Location
Our massage room is located in between the spin studio and the basketball courts, so we cannot guarantee a completely quiet atmosphere. We will provide a noise canceling machine that plays soothing music, but you may still hear outside noise from spin classes or basketball games. During your massage, there will be relaxing music playing, unless you request otherwise. For a quieter environment, we recommend scheduling your massage at a time when a spin class is not taking place (please see the spin class schedule below).
