Philosophy

As both an endurance triathlete and a marathon runner, I am familiar with your aches and pains. I know the benefits that massage has on a body while working out or training for a event. Whether you live at the gym or are a weekend warrior, whether you play tennis, run, cycle, golf or just play hard, the body performs at its peak when there is BALANCE.

 

What to Expect

We will work together to promote muscle balance and function,
increase circulation and decrease muscle soreness while improving
flexibility and range of motion by a regimen of Deep Tissue Massage, Circulatory Massage, Treatment Massage (where needed) and
incorporating stretching.

Massage can help aid in a FASTER, HEALTHIER recovery between workouts.

We will take you to your highest level!


Sports Therapy Massage does the following:

Massage reduces the inflammation due to over worked muscles.
This means: out with the old blood and in with the new!

Stretching joints increases Range-of-Motion so you can reach, bend, step and push harder and faster!

Massage flushes out the lactic-acid and waste (burned fat) that your body produces when you work out.
Think of it this way: Massage acts like a garage man, it carries the JUNK away. Leave the junk sit in your tissue and starts to stink fast, in other words, YOU STAY SORE LONGER THEN NEEDED.

The NUMBER ONE REASON to get a Sports Therapy Massage: DECREASE PAIN...FEEL BETTER!


Treatment Massage does the following:

PODIUM offers a relaxing environment with a specific goal to every session. You do not need to be an athlete (we all have a athlete inside us!)

I can help you move better with less pain and discomfort.

Not all massages are the same. I provide therapeutic massage geared towards pain reduction based on your injury/imbalance. I work hand-in-hand with physical therapists, chiropractors and doctors. In most cases, massage is safe while you are receiving other treatments.

  • From Podium Clients

    "I was recently injured (Pulled, Strained Muscle) while exercising. Dana found out everything she could about my situation, the injury and my workout routines. I discovered that Dana was an athlete as well. I not only received an excellent massage, but Dana poured everything she had into her efforts to help on the road to recovery. Afterwards she showed me a visual on the muscle that was affected. Dana was amazing." -Scott A.
