We believe in total health and fitness. We believe in healing faster, living more and achieving goals. We want to keep you doing what you love.
Sports and Orthopedic Massage
Our well trained therapists have extensive training in sports and orthopedic massage and have experience working on clients from rehabilitation to performance.
Massage can help you recover quicker from your training and racing efforts, heal injuries sustained, relieve stress by calming the nervous system, and reduce pain from muscles that are tight or in spasm. Many people understand that regular massage is as important to good health as good nutrition, exercise and rest.
Massage has been well documented to bring relief to all kinds of aches and pains, and much research has gone into specific training that is safe for cancer patients. We have a therapist trained in Oncology Massage, bringing relief of symptoms to anyone going through the cancer journey.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage
In 2015, Elisa became certified in Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) and early in 2016 became certified as a Lymphedema therapist for the upper extremities. She works 2 days a week as a PT Assistant at Greenville Health Systems’ Cancer Center in their lymphedema clinic, where they treat primarily breast cancer patients with lymphatic challenges.
The lymphatic system is the “trash collector” for toxins and wastes that the circulatory system leaves behind and it is important for everyone to keep that system happy. It is often damaged by cancer surgeries and post-surgery treatments and can be temporarily compromised by orthopedic injuries as well. All of these conditions benefit from MLD which is a specialized protocol of massage to help the lymphatic system recover or reroute if damage is more permanent.
Greenville Fitness & Rehab is glad to offer this expertise in addition to Samantha’s Oncology certification and feel it’s a great compliment to both of our years of orthopedic and sports experience.
We also offer one-on-one fitness training for our clients.
