We believe movement is crucial to the health, quality and longevity of life for every person on the planet. When things cease to have potential or kinetic energy, growth is halted and vitality dwindles.
People need to move.
And we're here to help encourage that by offering an environment that is, both, motivating and inviting and by hiring only the best therapists to support each of our patients on their individual journeys toward more movement, better performance and the joy of accomplishment.

Your patient experience is our top priority. We want you to move and feel better.
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 through focusing on the fascial system of the body while traditional massage is focused more on relaxation and "loosening" of the muscle 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! Everyone is welcome!
Do you take insurance?
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.
