Swedish/Relaxation Massage
Swedish massage is the modality of choice for full-body treatments, promoting relaxation and helping to reduce stress and tension held in the body’s tissues. This modality is a very soothing massage and helps remove tissue adhesions, improve blood & lymph flow and increase range of motion. It can enhance your total overall sense of wellbeing and is ideal for those who are new to massage therapy.
30 minutes – $45; 60 minutes – $60; 90 minutes – $75

 

Deep-Tissue/Sports Massage
Repetitive tasks, whether recreational or occupational are a part of our daily lives. Deep tissue and sports massage help target the areas of discomfort caused by repeated use or poor postural alignment. It involves the use of a variety of deep strokes and trigger point theory to access deeper muscle tissue fibers. Deep Tissue and Sports Massage can help shorten recovery time from muscular strain by flushing the tissues of lactic acid, uric acid and other metabolic wastes.
30 minutes – $55; 60 minutes – $70

 

NEW! Cupping

Rather than applying pressure to muscles, the suction uses pressure to pull skin, tissue and muscle upwards.  The cups are placed on the skin creating a vacuum by suctioning out the air.  The underlying tissue is raised, or sucked partway into the cup. You will find a little tight sensation in the area of the cup.  Often the sensation is relaxing and soothing.  The cups may be placed in one spot or moved around your back.  The duration in which they would stay on is unique to you on the particular day.  Cupping may cause the skin to temporarily turn red, blue or purple, especially if there is an injury or energetic blockage under the cupped area.  The skin discoloration can last anywhere from 3 days up to 14 days, but is rarely painful.  The purpose of cupping is to enhance circulation, pain management, pull out toxins that linger in your body’s tissue, and sedate the nervous system (which is good for high blood pressure), and helps control fatigue, anxiety and migraines.

30 minutes – $50; Add-on 10 minutes of cupping to a massage- $25

Since joining Performance, I have made huge gains. The process of recovering from knee surgery has been much easier because of the expertise of the Performance staff in helping me get back to full strength. I would recommend this gym to anyone.*

Under the guidance of trainers, I have been able to decrease my 5K time from 28 minutes to under 20 minutes in just 2 years.  I have also lost 30 pounds while increasing strength, endurance and power.*

Training over the last few years at Performance has been the best health decision I have ever made.  Leslie, my current trainer, keeps me on track to stay fit and strong, makes our sessions interesting and challenging, and is always positive, even when I have setbacks.*

“I am a competitive cyclist and have been in personal training at Performance for 6 years. The best part about the trainers is that they know our medical histories very well.  Leslie is great at modifying a training session specifically to each individual person’s limitations so as to avoid injury.”*

“I’m retired and enjoy a full, active life. This is due, in no small part, to the time I spend at Performance. The group classes provide a great workout and lots of variety. Plus, a fun way to meet new friends!”*
