Massage with our Licensed Massage Therapists
Our massage therapy department is trained to take an integrative approach, assessing and working on specific soft tissue structures that may be causing pain, nerve entrapment, dysfunction in joints, and faulty muscle recruitment patterns. Manual therapy sessions are specific to individual needs and focus on discovering the etiology of the problem, and correcting it through a hands on approach utilizing life changes, exercise, diet, and massage techniques.
Whether you need to relax and de-stress or have a specific injury or pain, Elevation Fitness can help you through massage therapy. Massage therapy is both an ART and a SCIENCE, and we blend the two.
We integrate our knowledge of pain and injury conditions with an understanding of the function of various massage techniques commonly used in the field.
Some of the benefits of massage/manual therapy
Calms the Nervous System: When we are consistently stressed, our nervous system becomes overloaded and we become stuck in “fight or flight” mode. Massage is one of the best ways to de-stress and relax the nervous system, reminding our body that we do not need remain in a stimulated state at all times.
Improves Circulation: Specific massage techniques are used to improve blood flow throughout the body and in certain muscles. Decreased circulation to muscles is a common reason they become tight and joints become immobile, resulting in pain and discomfort.
Decreases Pain: Massage can decrease pain by loosening tight muscles, breaking up scar-tissue and myofascial adhesions. Massage also helps improve lymphatic drainage which removes toxins out of the muscles.
Rehabilitates Injuries: Massage can restore balance to the muscles, improve circulation and lymphatic drainage. Mobilizing the muscles and breaking up the scar tissue accumulated from overuse or a traumatic injury has the best effects for normalizing the muscle tissue. Techniques such as ART (active release technique) is one of the best forms of soft tissue treatment.

I should have met with you a long time ago. I’ve never eaten such delicious, filling food before. I have so many stomach issues and yo-yo weight issues, and right now my stomach feels great and I lost a couple pounds while eating gourmet meals. You are awesome!
For about 7 months now, I have been training with Alex two times per week. A training session never goes without laughter and working out has become something that I truly enjoy (and that is all thanks to Alex).
I met Peter Lombardi and got an immediate sense that he knew what he was doing and was truly invested in his career. 4+ months later I can say I feel better than they have in years.
Sitting with Christina going over my daily eating habits has helped me to get on the right track and I feel so much better now that I am eating a proper diet.
From our first meeting I knew I made the right decision. My trainer is very attentive to what my goals are while taking into account injuries/obstacles that are hindering my progression.
I would recommend Elevation Fitness to anyone who wants to improve their health and fitness AND meet some new awesome friends!
Over these past 6 weeks I have learned that eating healthy and exercising on a daily basis should not end with the “challenge”. Instead, it has become my way of life. Finally putting myself first, I'm feeling more energized and strong. Glad to be on this journey with my new Elevation Fitness family.
I have been coming to this gym for about 8 or 9 years and I have met so many wonderful people and also made life long friends. Thank you so much for all of your hard work! All the food was delicious and I will continue to make most of it a part of my diet every week!
With Christina's nutritional advise and weekly recipes, I dialed in my energy supplies and detoxified my body. Peter and his staff made me push myself further than I thought possible and really motivated me back into a healthy lifestyle.
Elevation has made the experience nothing but enjoyable. As a small community gym, Elevation Fitness offers a personal experience that larger gyms lack.
I just completed your 8 week training program. This was an amazing program and it was the perfect platform for me to jump start a healthy lifestyle.
My concern with fitness and Health has become an integral part of my daily life. I can honestly say that Peter Lombardi has changed my way of life and has facilitated my transition to a more holistic and healthy lifestyle.
I am at an age where I just want to be fit and healthy. Our bodies are our responsibility! So start caring for your body and it will care for you. Eat clean and workout hard.
