Whether playing baseball, softball, or stickball, muscles are prone to tightening up into little balls of heavily chewed gum. Today's side deal encourages athletic rejuvenation with your choice of a one-hour Swedish or deep-tissue massage at Athletic Edge in Los Altos for $45. Sports therapists who understand the rigors and tensions placed on an athlete's body administer massages that loosen a physique's ligaments and musculature, giving sportists the capability to perform at their highest level.
Athletic Edge's trained massage therapists have innumerable hours of massage experience built into their healing mitts. Swedish massage ($90 for one hour) involves hands, forearms, and elbows as it gently works muscles to improve circulation and bring clarity to both body and mind. Along with soothing relaxation, Swedish massage relieves cramps, catalyzes healing, and sharpens one's concentration. Deep-tissue massage ($105 for one hour) digs deeper than the Swedish massage to eliminate severe and chronic tension, untie painful knots, and leave the body feeling freshly recovered within one or two days following the treatment.
- I had an out-call appointment a few days ago for a 120 minute deep tissue massage, and it was the best massage that I have EVER had. My therapist was extremely knowledgeable, and she was really able to ease all the tension out of my shoulders. – sk8jessie, Google Maps
- There was no chatting as [therapist Christianna Aronstam] started promptly at the appointed time and delegated all of my blissful 90 minutes to her great healing touch. – Tiffany M., Yelp
Having planned and executed massage therapy for the Tennessee Titans and competitors in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon, the muscle menders at Athletic Edge know how to help the body recover from physical trauma and athletic exertion. Their highly individualized treatments pull from more than 15 modalities—soothing muscles with gliding Swedish strokes, targeting the deeper connective tissue with neuromuscular therapy, and even combining salutary techniques to treat the underlying causes of aches. Although the gentle or directed kneading can have a distinctively relaxing effect, the therapists specialize in jump-starting clients' natural healing processes and helping them overcome the soft-tissue pains that athletic activity, auto accidents, and full-contact charades can cause. The studios also partner with chiropractors and physical therapists to form a one-stop treatment center for athletes, with particular modalities complementing the strains incurred by particular sports.
