Whether you’re an elite athlete who wants to recover quickly from strenuous exercise or a recreational gym-goer trying to prevent injury, a recovery massage is the perfect way to finish off a workout. Post-workout recovery massages have been shown to reduce muscle soreness and promote flexibility while helping prevent injury.
Asphalt Green offers recovery massages to members and nonmembers over the age of 18. The massages are carried out by licensed massage therapists and are available for durations of 15 and 30 minutes.

Do I need to wear anything in particular?
Please bring a fresh shirt to change into after your workout. You have the option of removing your shirt if you feel comfortable, however, undergarments must be worn at all times.
Is there anything to consider after my session?
Be sure to drink plenty of water, and enjoy that wonderful post-recovery session feeling!
