About Us


WHO ARE WE?

Athletic Edge is dedicated to the well-being of its clients. We've placed our emphasis on providing the best possible care, by employing the most educated, licensed therapists. Using sports specific soft-tissue techniques (deep tissue, trigger point, manual joint manipulation, and voodoo taping), we specialize a treatment that is specific to your needs. A sports massage is far from your typical spa massage.

WHY SPORTS MASSAGE?

Different sports/activities place stress on various joints and muscles. It's through these repetitive movements our bodies may experience pain/discomfort. Through soft-tissue manipulation, we can help break up scar tissue, increase blood flow, and increase range of...

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Nice atmosphere. Like the music selections.

    Best sports and Trigger Point massage I have gotten in the Raleigh area.

  • Lal is a great massage therapist. He knows what he is doing and targets specific muscles for trigger point release without having to be directed. He is capable of applying a lot of pressure if that works for a client, but is very receptive to feedback if the pressure is too much and makes necessary adjustments. His pleasant demeanor is a plus!

    Always a good experience at AE.

  • Lal is literally the best sports massage therapist ever! Excellent, extremely skilled, & super professional! :)

    The space is professional, clean and comfortable.

  • Always an excellent experience

    Easy parking on the street. Straightforward upon arrival. An email notifying me that I should come early to fill out paperwork would have been helpful.

  • Lal is a fantastic masseuse. I wouldn’t keep having massages if I felt otherwise! Have been seeing him for years now (as a doctor’s referral) so I can honestly say I’d be lost and hurting if I didn’t get regular massages!

    Best deep tissue / trigger point massage ever...and I've had a lot!

His knowledge on the different muscle groups and their affects on the body always amazes me. Also providing me with ways to help ease the trouble spots with simple stretches is helpful. ...but dang it hurt! ;-)

Very professional and educated about the body and the potential issue I brought to his attention. He did great to make sure I understood what was going and educate me how to improve my body with exercises after.
