Massage therapy has innumerable benefits for the whole mind and body; especially in conjunction with a training regimen. Massage helps in post-workout recovery by keeping muscles lengthened, flushing out lactic acid buildup in the body, and helping improve the body's ability to function.
There are many benefits to massage therapy aside from training recovery:
Lowers Blood Pressure and Heart Rate
Improves Flexibility and Range of Motion
Reduces the Chance of Injury
Shortens Recovery Time Between Workouts
Removes Toxic Wastes (Lactic and Carbonic Acids) that Produce Muscle Fatigue
Promotes Deeper and Easier Breathing
Strengthens The Immune System and Promotes Healing
Enhances Post-Operative Rehabilitation
Improves Rehabilitation After Injury
Manages Pain of Chronic Conditions
Our massage therapists offer Swedish, Deep Tissue, and Custom Massages to Fitness Options members and non-members. Descriptions of each form of massage are below.

ADD CBD TO YOUR MASSAGE $10
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a safe, non-intoxicating, and non-addictive compound extracted from the cannabis, or hemp, plant. It interacts with the body’s natural systems to produce a wide range of health effects.
CBD is an ideal companion for massage. There have been numerous reports of topical CBD working wonders for arthritic joints, tender points, muscle spasms, phantom limb pain, peripheral neuropathy and inflammatory skin conditions. By reducing pain, inflammation and anxiety, the body reaches deeper states of relaxation. Cannabis used topically may also improve elasticity of the skin, help eliminate acne, and increase the blood flow to the skin which allows for faster healing of cuts and scrapes.
Some people are concerned that they might feel “high” after a CBD massage. Absolutely not. The CBD oil in our massage cream has virtually zero presence of the psychoactive cannabinoid, THC.
CBD Massage is generally suitable for people of all legal ages, lifestyles, and massage needs. Although we almost never hear any reports of adverse effects associated with its use, as always, consult your physician about possible drug interactions or if you are pregnant/breastfeeding. The total amount of CBD that you would receive topically in a 60-min massage session is 10-30 mg.
