Specializing in sports massage, therapist Christopher Benoit applies his athleticism and formal training to a variety of relaxation modalities. A long-distance cyclist himself, Benoit helps to keep athletes limber during muscle-stiffening cold seasons with foam-fingered kneads designed to facilitate healing, improve athletic performance, and increase range of motion. Benoit approaches massage therapy from a perspective of wellness, helping to circulate endorphins, nutrients, and oxygen throughout the body as he bolsters the immune system. Dim lighting gently illuminates light-green walls as clients lie on heated towels and surrender to soothing strokes augmented by hypoallergenic massage gels.
