Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between Sports Massage and traditional massage?
Sports Massage is a much more clinical, dynamic and specific form of massage that requires the therapist and the patient to communicate often during therapy sessions and requires much more education on the therapists part, so that the patient achieves optimum results. Sports Therapy is more focused on movement and performance while traditional massage is focused more on relaxation and "loosening" of the tissue. BOTH have their place and we refer out to an excellent licensed massage therapist that's more versed in the traditional art of massage therapy for purposes of relaxation and restoration of the tissue.
Are your therapists physical therapists or massage therapists?
We employ both massage therapists and physical therapists but sports massage is our main offering. All of our massage therapists pull from many different modalities within the realm of sports therapy, massage therapy, structural integration (centered around fascia/connective tissue), personal training and corrective exercise which makes each session feel much more interactive and educational in comparison to a traditional massage therapy session.
Do I have to be an athlete to become a patient?
Absolutely not! Anyone is welcome! Please understand before booking that we are not a spa and the work that we do is clinical and specific.
Do you take insurance?
At this time, we do not, however, we do accept HSA/FSA and are happy to provide you with any documentation you need in order to file with your insurance company on your own.
