Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Excellent

    I'm impressed by the knowledge and skill of the staff, their attention to each clients needs in accordance with their professional assessment and specialized treatment is unmatched.

  • Very comfortable and ideal location.

    Best real massage I have ever had, not the spa experience which is fine because that is not what I was looking for. They specialize in deep tissue sports massage which I've had a difficult time finding at other businesses that claim to do this type of massage. Highly recommend.

  • The office is very conveniently located and the atmosphere comfortable.

    Highly recommend

  • Cute and cozy space. I love the sky lights. I wish the floors didn't creak and the table/room was warmer.

    I love this place! My schedule can be unpredictable so I have seen several of the therapists here based on availability and they are all fantastic. So glad I found this group, they're the best!

  • Good location with good ambiance

    Very simple clean open environment. Very nice.

Lela is incredibly skilled at working out pain caused by tight muscles, knots, etc. She explains what she is doing and how certain areas are affected by muscles I wouldn't think were related. She also provides tips to avoid future pain. I highly recommend seeing her whether during training or for maintenance.

Kristin is hands down (no pun intended) the most adept, intuitive and healing massage therapist I've worked with. As a retired professional dancer I've had more massages than I could count. She's a magician.
by Anna on Oct 18
I loved Kristin's flowing and firm style; she made every muscle feel so loved and tended to from beginning to end. Somehow her hands made my whole body feel very reassured and safe. Kristin tells the story of your body through her hands; everything feels so connected and whole by the end of the massage. She gave so much relief to my muscles and also to my heart space.

I have been receiving sports massage on a regular basis since I was diagnosed with arthritis and it has made a huge difference in my mobility. My maintenance program is a treatment session every two weeks and I engage in light exercise daily. This has helped me to live basically pain free and I'm excited to ease my way back into a more vigorous work out program. Thanks Richmond Sports Massage!

This was, hands down, the best sports massage I have ever received! I have been a long distance runner since high school and have had a lot of manual therapy done to treat injuries and improve performance but none of those treatments were as effective as the work I've received at Richmond Sports Massage. It's a really cool little clinic as well, professional but not sterile with a great Carytown vibe.

Richmond Sports Massage, and specifically Lela came highly recommended by a friend of mine. I came in for specific hip and shoulder issues and she explained what might be going on and described how she would treat it. Lela is knowledgeable and found my trigger points - getting motion back into both areas better than I've had in a while. I am looking forward to a regular regimen with her to help recover from sand volleyball tournaments.

I have been seeing Lela for almost 2 years now and her knowledge and skill continues to impress me! Everyone I have referred to her has reported back with similar amazing experiences. She is always able to pinpoint and treat the source of your pain/tightness/discomfort. She also offers stretches and suggestions to prevent the problems from recurring. She is very professional and always discusses treatment plan before we begin to ensure you feel comfortable during your session. Honestly I cannot say enough good things!

Lela uses her profound knowledge of muscular structures to assess and engage muscle areas in need. Her regular therapy has significantly decreased chronic pain and increased ranges of motion. She is particularly knowledgeable about managing muscular effects of various types of exercise (running and cycling) and injury recovery. Her new space is convenient and comfortable. Thank you, Lela!
