There is a good reason that there are high monthly searches for “massage Ann Arbor”.
“Performing massage in Ann Arbor is like an Olympic training camp,” say Heidi Johnson, owner and operator of Thrive Massage and Bodywork, LLC.
“You train and perform constantly, and you are surrounded by some of the best massage therapists in the world. Because we work on one another, as well as our clients, Ann Arbor’s massage therapists strive to be the best in the US.”
There is more here than an Ann Arbor massage community, as Heidi explains:
According to Forbes Magazine,
“A couple of years ago, the financial web site WalletHub did a study of 150 Metro Areas….Ann Arbor tops the list, not only as the city with the best educated population, overall, but as the city with the highest percentage of ‘college-experienced adults or associate’s degree holders,’ the highest percentage of bachelor’s degree holders, and the highest percentage of graduate or professional degree holders.”
“No wonder Ann Arbor is so obsessed with health and fitness, as well as superior research and development and other professional performances,” Heidi notes. “People here take care of their pregnancies, of their children and of themselves. Their shared interested in health is extraordinary, and massage is a key strategy to sustaining their vigor.”
Ann Arbor, Michigan is, of course, a famous college sports town with a long history of championship teams that date back more than a century. “That has the effect of inspiring all of us who live here to play team sports, including soccer, football, basketball, volleyball and hockey,” Heidi says, “or to be fit and healthy. Hey, in the warm weather, you see some of us in hot air balloons. We run, we swim. We practice fencing and martial arts. We lift weights, we row, we ski on water and snow, we kayak, we canoe, we inline skate. Just shoveling the snow we get here is a good workout and a good reason to get an Ann Arbor massage,” Heidi observes.
“And while not everyone may engage in extreme physical training, the beautiful gardens you find across this town are rigorously maintained by homeowners who have their own aches and pains that the horticultural arts require. As the beautiful flowers open and the sweet scents are carried on the breeze, they too are likely to search for massage Ann Arbor. I cannot begin to tell you how many interesting people I have met and taken care of in my practice,” Heidi continues.
“In Ann Arbor, we work hard, we play hard, and we take care of ourselves. So, when every muscle and tendon hurts, it’s time to search massage Ann Arbor.”
Heidi has performed sports massage on varsity athletes and weekend warriors for eighteen years. “Ann Arbor massage is the best because it has to be to support all of our athletics and fitness programs,” she says, “as well as nurturing our deep interest in education and development of children.
“Each of us who provide massage in Ann Arbor challenges ourselves, and one another, to be better. We set the bar high by benchmarking one another,” the Thrive Massage and Bodywork owner says. “I trained in Madison, Wisconsin, another huge sports and fitness town, before I came here. And I can say that each of us who perform massage in Ann Arbor is determined to be the best.”
Heidi also practices what she preaches, working out with a trainer in the weight room and running. “It’s not easy with two wonderful kids, a business, and a loving husband,” she says, “but I try to work our five days a week. I work hard at eating the right food at the right time. In fact, one of the real joys of my work is exchanging exercise and diet tips with my clients.
“So not only am I a provider of Ann Arbor massage therapy at my Thrive Massage and Bodywork studio but also a beneficiary of massage Ann Arbor as performed by my professional friends and colleagues.
“If you need a massage for any reason, Ann Arbor is the place to come for it,” Heidi observes. “With all the choice, you will certainly find a massage therapist who is right for you.”
