What our clients say:
Any athlete will tell you that if you don't take care of yourself on and off the field you will not be able to play your sport to a desired capacity. Diet, stretching, maintenance massage, injury rehabilitation and hydration keep me healthy. KLynergy team continues to foster this with all audiences. They not only preach it to us they live the life style.
My massage therapists have an incredible understanding of my injuries and why they occur due to the sport and postition specificity. They have helped me reach great lengths in my career as a professional athlete. They have kept me healthy through regular massage appointments. When an injury occurs they work with team trainers and doctors in order to ensure I get the best care possible. Their professionalism and promptness make the experience that much more enjoyable. I have recommended many of my fellow teammates to KLynergy and they say they have had the same experience. Thank you KLynergy for continuing to help me progress and excel in a sport I love so much.
I have been receiving massages for almost 15 years. No one in all my experience listens to my expectations and preferences or identifies the source of muscle pain as well as my Massage Therapists at KLynergy. I was struck by a car and I attribute the success of my recovery in large part due to the KLynergy team. They really helped release the muscles in my ankle and foot that had suffered severe trauma and lack of use so that I could improve my range of motion and start walking again. They helped relieve muscles in my upper legs and lower back that had been aggravated from dislocating my hip and continuing to walk improperly. There is one word to describe my experience here: Amazing!
I travel a lot for business so my schedule is restricted. KLynergy's extended hours from 5am - 9pm offer flexibility. This is the only place I have found that I can get a massage outside of business hours and it is by far the best massage I have ever received world wide.
Frequently flying on extended flights take a toll on my body. I try when at all possible to fly business class for more comfort, but it doesn't seem to help my neck and low back. I schedule a massage before and after most trips and when I do I am pain free and experience no jet lag. You have to give the Ashiatsu a try! I was skeptical at first but it feels amazing.
