Relieves swelling, drains fatigue
Sports massage therapy is geared toward athletes of every kind, from world-class professionals to weekend joggers. The particulars of the sports massage technique are specific to the athlete’s sport of choice. Focusing on areas of the body that are overused and stressed from repetitive and often aggressive movements.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Relieves muscle tension, improves circulation
A type of massage therapy, deep tissue massage uses firm pressure and slow strokes to reach deeper layers of muscle and fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles). This method of massage is used for chronic aches and pain and contracted areas such as a stiff neck and upper back, lower back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.
Relaxation, improves circulation & flexibility
Relaxing the entire body is one of the primary goals of this technique. Muscles are rubbed with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
My name is Chris O’Hara. You will have a hard time finding a massage therapist with the experience, quality of touch and focused attention that you will find with my massage. All for a very reasonable price that you will rarely find with high quality service.
Why Superior Sports Massage Over the Others?
The massage industry is filled with therapists who use a cookie cutter approach to their massages. Before our session I will ask about any concerns or areas of tension in your body and they will always be taken into consideration. Whether your goal is improvement of soft tissue health or relaxation or a combination of the two, we can work together to find the massage that’s right for you.
I have been a massage therapist for almost a decade and have given thousands of massage treatments. I have worked in spas, chiropractic offices/medical settings and at sporting events. I have tremendous knowledge about the body as far as soft tissue is concerned. I have worked with every demographic of the population and am especially in tune with all of my clients needs.
It is standard practice for massage establishments to falsely advertise that they charge so and so price for a “60 minute massage.” When you book with me you will be on the table for at least the time you booked for. I try to allow at least a 20 minute window between appointments to ensure there is no rush .
I will never charge you for being late, canceling or re-booking. I know from living and driving all over LA county, how frustrating it is to try to schedule things and keep all your appointments. Just try your best to let me know ahead of time if you cannot make it on time or if you have to reschedule.
Also, I have some of the best pricing and packages you will find anywhere.
I am a physical therapist and this was by far the best massage I have ever gotten! He knew what he was doing and was able to FEEL what needed to be worked on, which is a sign if a very good massage therapist. He was extremely thorough and was very good at asking and gauging how much pressure I wanted and could tolerate (I prefer VERY deep pressure and he did not dissapoint). Lastly, his prices are extremely reasonable, so I plan on going back regularly.
I sleep much better after his massages, and his bodywork keeps me going so I can continue to work out. He is strong, consistent, and thoughtful in his approach, and his experience (10+ years) and expertise clearly shows. Also, for anyone who is squeamish about male massage therapists, he is completely professional and just a nice guy. Very affordable prices for someone who needs ongoing work, especially if you buy a package.
Found Chris thru Yelp. I’ve been searching for a new massage therapist after my last one relocated to San Diego. Finding someone who is legitimate and can apply the right pressure can be a challenge. (I’m a personal trainer based in Redondo Beach. Wear and tear is the common theme for this body.) I was specifically looking for an independent massage therapist after paying much more for professional studios where I wasn’t as fond of the sessions given. Chris, though? He’s the real deal. He has an understanding of the muscles being utilized in select exercises, so that really made a difference in his technique. I can handle deep tissue massages and I’ll tell ya his style is on point. I’ll be recommending my own clients to see him after searching for a new therapist the last few months. Definitely worth the time and money. You can also schedule thru his website which is extremely convenient. Thanks again, Chris. I’ll see you soon, brotha!
