Where to go for sports massage?

face through massage tableGraham asks via Twitter:

I'm looking to find a good place in the capital district to get a sports massage... maybe a slight preference to the east side of the Hudson (Troy, Greenbushes)

We were curious what separates sports massage from non-sports massage -- it appears it just means there's a specific emphasis on improving athletic performance and injury rehab.

Got a suggestion for Graham? Please share!

My understanding is that a sports massage ends with a slap on the butt, while the "other kind" of massage has a happy ending.

White Sands massage in Troy - get the deep tissue!

Back in Balance in Clifton Park is good - also ask for Corey at Ania's Day Spa - Guilderland - he is great!

I second the recommendation for Back in Balance in Clifton Park. They do deep tissue and myofascial release.

Spa Virgo in Albany is amazing for this, and their Brady lives in Troy and will come to your home if you'd rather stay in the Troy area -- ask for him. He's specialized in rehab massage; similarly, their RJ i s the go-to for relaxation.

I second the White Sands Massage in Troy. Ive had massages there to help relieve the pain of sports related injuries and/or strains and they have been excellent.

Massage in the Park is pretty awesome. Always nice and they'll bring a chair or whole massage table to your office. I think their based out of the RPI tech park by the children's museum.
