Why MassageWorks?

You have options. There are several places you could choose to give your business to in Los Gatos or the San Jose Bay Area. So what makes us special? Glad you asked!

Massage Works is just that; we do what works for your body. Our staff is expert at meeting with you, listening to your needs and then deciding on a massage therapy which blends several modalities of body therapy into every session to give you the massage your body needs.

Massage Works is to massage what an experienced mechanic is to your vehicle; we know how to repair the damage and make your body hum again.
We specialize in helping athletes prevent and recover from injuries, people suffering from chronic stress, honing in on areas causing tightness and eliminating muscle based pain. You come to us not because you need to relax, but because you want to do what’s best for your body, whether it’s preparing for optimal physical performance, recovering after a big race, performing your best in training, working a productive 40+ hour week or keeping up with small children.
If you want to prevent and heal injuries to the muscles and tendons, Massage Works is for you. If you want to alleviate chronic pain, increase your range of motion, stimulate circulation of blood and lymphatic fluids and break down adhesions, we have the massage therapy you need.
Whether you’re a world class Olympic athlete or a weekend jogger, Massage Works can help you increase your muscle flexibility, reduce your level of fatigue, improve your endurance and help keep your body in top shape.

Studies from the American College of Sports Medicine have shown that athletes who use massage therapy, either before or after exercise, noticeably reduce muscle soreness and help protect their bodies from injury.

At Massage Works, we have seen that regular massage is the best addition to an intensive training regime, and our skilled massage therapists will be with you at every step of the way to find the style and functional massage that best suits you.

Massage is so much more than just relaxation. Our techniques will help you to raise the levels of oxygen in your blood stream, decrease harmful muscle toxins, reduce levels of the stress hormone cortisol and increase your white blood cell count to give your immune system a boost.

With our blend of deep tissue, Swedish, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, acupressure, stretching, sports massage and  eleaseology, we’re confident you will feel the benefits of professional massage after even just one session.
Benefits of Massage
  • Increases circulation, which allows the body to pump more oxygen and nutrients into tissues and organs.
  • Stimulates the lymph system, the body’s natural defense, against toxic invaders. For example, in breast cancer patients, massage has been shown to increase the cells that fight cancer.
  • Releases endorphins, the body’s natural painkiller. For this reason, massage is incorporated in treatment for chronic illnesses, injury and recovery from surgery to control and relieve pain.
  • Improves range of motion and decreases discomfort associated with lower back pain.
  • Relaxes and softens injured and overused muscles.
  • Reduces muscle spasms and cramping.
  • Increases joint flexibility.
  • Reduces recovery time for strenuous workouts and eliminates subsequent risk of muscle strain.
  • Reduces post-operative adhesions and edema, as well as reduces and realigns scar tissue after healing has occurred.
