When you come to ‘Sarah’s Sports Massage’ at Beechmont Racquet & Fitness, you’re not only receiving therapy from someone with a caring touch, but from a talented & dedicated therapist who has practiced massage for 5 years and has well developed palpation skills! Sarah has performed over 400 chair massages between the gym and the various sports events around town where she volunteers her much appreciated services. Not to mention the numerous functions inside BR&F she is frequently invited to attend! She has provided sports massage at The Flying Pig Marathon, Tour de Cure Run for Diabetes, racquetball tournaments, post-match tennis, and just about any other type of sport, exercise, or physical fitness class you can think of. Having attended two very unique massage therapy academies, she’s developed an energy-focused technique coupled with a modern, medical approach to healing. Sarah has treated clients with a variety of injuries, medical conditions, and pain and has a good working knowledge of the aspects of such ailments along with the therapeutic intuition for techniques to get you back on your feet. Throughout her career, she’s been successful at relieving conditions such as: breast cancer, shin splints, rotator cuff pain, thoracic outlet syndrome, lower back/sciatic pain, hamstring strain, tennis elbow, ‘kink’ in the neck pain and the list goes on...
After graduating from Collinson School for Therapeutics and Massage of Colorado in 2001, Sarah pursued her career in the spa industry, specializing in therapeutic and relaxation ‘Swedish’ style massage with some assisted stretching and hydrotherapy rolled in. During this stint of her career, massage was viewed as more of a luxury treatment rather than ongoing healthcare for a specific physical problem. Her clients sought therapy primarily for stress reduction and overall reconnection of their tired bodies’ separated energies. These years taught her the importance of creating the ‘ambience’ in a massage room: everything from the feel of the sheets and warmth of the table, to the music and lighting concept and how all of these things affected the overall experience of the client. While maintaining a true passion for healing, she enjoyed every moment of providing massage in the spa setting, however, felt she had more to offer as a masseuse and desired a challenging, faster paced version of her career. Therefore, in 2014 after graduating from Cincinnati School of Medical Massage in Blue Ash, Ohio, she decided this time to follow her passion to specialize in sports massage and injury prevention & rehabilitation. She began volunteering chair massage in the lobby of Beechmont Racquet and Fitness in June of 2014 while still in massage school. (A brilliant plot between Sarah & Kellie!) After months of hard work…and a little remodeling, everything came together and Sarah’s Sports Massage opened its doors Monday, March 2nd 2015 after which there hasn’t been a dull moment (or a free moment, period), since! Sarah is also VERY interested in business, marketing & advertising – you can ask anyone here at the gym- she is “quite the promoter!” Future plans for Sarah include: postural assessments & a kinesio taping certification!
Thanks to EVERYONE who helped make this possible. Sarah’s Sports Massage grew from an idea into a thriving business and is such a valuable asset for the people here at Beechmont Racquet & Fitness! I couldn’t have done it without all of you!

Relax & Heal
This style of massage therapy benefits anyone who participates in regular physical activity – which could mean a weekend jogger, recreational tennis player, even a professional athlete. The technique is specific to the client’s sport/workout of choice and can be performed prior to, during, or immediately following a workout. Benefits include – warming/preparing muscles, maintaining mental focus during sports, increasing range of motion, injury prevention, detoxifying/restoring muscles & relieving pain. These sessions last from 10 to 30 minutes & may be provided on massage chair or table.
This unique therapy focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It aims to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep pressure on the contracted areas. Its purpose is to release chronic muscle tension through slower strokes and more direct deep pressure across the grain of the muscle fibers while breaking up and eliminating scar tissue. This therapy has been found to decrease heart rate while increasing endorphins (“feel good” hormones). These sessions will not last longer than 30 minutes and may only be provided on massage table. Because deep tissue massage uses such specifically focused, deep pressure, it may cause some soreness during or right after session. Not recommended prior to exercise.
This popular style of relaxation therapy is commonly used in a 60 minute full body massage. Long, gliding strokes in the direction of blood flow toward the heart, increase circulation and oxygen levels in the blood while detoxifying muscles and relieving tension. Recent studies have found that 45 minutes of massage decreased levels of stress hormone cortisol in the body and also increased the number of lymphocytes (immune cells). Swedish style massage includes many “basic” techniques which are interspersed with just about every other style of massage practiced. Perfect for relaxing after a long day or as preventative therapy once a week.
Provided in massage chair in kneeling position with face in the face cradle. Chair massage is done through clients’ clothing and without the use of oil. A popular choice for sports massage with sessions lasting from 10 to 30 minutes.
