More than a treatment for injuries, sports massage therapy produces overwhelming benefits for athletes physically, physiologically, and psychologically. It is known to be beneficial for athletes or individuals in any exercise programs who seek enhanced performance, faster recovery, and assistance in injury prevention.

We also offer Fascial Stretch Therapy™, here at Xelf. It is a table-based assisted massage therapy that focuses on your fascia. The fascia is a tissue that holds all of your muscles together and runs the length of your body. FST™ is perfect for those who suffer from chronic joint stiffness or muscle pain or discomfort during regular exercise. This stretching technique manipulates your body to stretch to its full capacity, and thus improving flexibility, relieving tension of joints, and enabling more muscle movement.
