Stop Pain / Get Fixed / Live Better
"This is where you go to get fixed. It’s where you go to change how you feel. People don’t know where to turn or what to do when their back hurts, their knees hurt, or there’s a problem in their body. We have been taught by our western society to go to a doctor and pop a pill or have surgery when in reality, it would be much easier and more simple to just fix the root of the problem instead of putting a Band-Aid over it."
- Becca Pike, LMT
Massage Strong is different than other massage offices. We focus on pain relief, injury therapy and mobility. We aren't your typical spa, which is why you won't see any waterfalls in our lobby, and you may not hear music during your session. We aren't here to sooth you. We are here to work with your body in a way to promote pain relief, healing, and functional progress. We have been referred to as "the physical therapists of massage".

Frequently Asked Questions
What should I expect my first time?
You do not need to bring anything special. Arrive 5 minutes before your appointment to fill out our quick paperwork. Your deep tissue massage therapist will greet you in the lobby at your appointment time. They will chat with you for a few minutes to create a custom massage that best fits your needs and goals. The therapist will leave you for a few minutes, so you can undress to your comfort level and get on the massage table. Most people get down to their underwear and get under the sheets. If you are more comfortable you can keep your clothes on during the massage. You will never be exposed, as you will be under a sheet and blanket the entirety of the massage. When the massage is over the therapist will leave the room and allow you to get dressed.
