Editorial review from Citysearch 12/16/2013

Well, I chose to go here based on the reviews & I wanted a professional licensed male therapist, who was also a athlete & runner. That knows about sports & sports injuries. With all the check marks & after three hours of searching I found the perfect sports medicine therapy and a male therapist .Energize Sports Massage is great! I called for a last minute appointment because another Runners Repair Therapist canceled on me an hour before my appointment. I called Anthony who operates this establishment at his condo in Andersonville[ I love this part of Chicago's Northside] he was able to get me in the same day, Thwe massage room is clean, excellent, a fireplace & heated massage table & very relaxing music. I was soo in massage heaven, muscle felt so good. Best deep tissue & I highly recommend his stretch therapy, the very best,. I got the first time 90 min. client deal, and I got a wonderful sports-stretch massage. I had a lot of pain and tension in my shoulders, hamstring, i t bands & calves, Mr Reeves worked all of that out. When I left, I felt like a brand new person! Rates are very reasonable. Where can you get a 60 min. sports massage for just $55.00. I will be a regular\r more

For Runners who seek a specialist in leg/Hamstring injuries 5/24/2012

I just left Energize Sports Massage having received the best sports-stretch/runners massage I have ever had in Chicago or anywhere. Anthony was a true professional, skilled and gifted. His magic hands definitely made me squirm because he is not joking about working out your stress knots & muscle tightness. He was very receptive to working with my hamstring tightness & lower back pain. Through out the session, he is concern on how much pressure & stretching just the right angle on not to damage tthe leg muscle to to extend & let your hamstring/I.T band muscle heal properly.He asked all the right questions at all the right times. I gave Energize Sports Massage & Mr. Anthony 5 stars because the service provided & he is a expert on Runners repair & runners massage, My legs & feet have never felt so go before & after a marathon run., Which is why I am a regular client, and i'm now hooked. more

Great Sports/ Runners Massage specialist; for real athlete 10/6/2011

I am a runner from China, preparing for the Chicago October Marathon. Mr. Reeves is a excellent runners repair specialist. His sports medicine technique is very knowledgeable & his hands are strong to loosen & repair leg muscle tissues. I have had a fair number of sports/ runners massages on the northside/ downtown area,[ Sir Spa was one of them in Andersonville, Do not waste your time, Over rated & Over Priced] and while I've been more than happy with some of the therapist, this was the first time that I felt like someone was treating & cared about his practice as opposed to just helping my muscles, hamstring injuries recover faster. I had some trouble & tightness with my calf, I.T. bands & groin area. When I saw him, and he used a stretch pressure technique/ hot-cold therapy to work it out that was surprisingly effective, and not even painful. if you are a athlete or runner seeking your own private sports medicine/runners therapist, I highly recommend Energize Sports Massage & Mr. Anthony. Rates are very reasonable. I do recommend his signature full body 90 min. sports/runner massage, for $95, what a deal!! more

Hamstring problems,Best Runners Repair Therapist in Chicago 7/8/2011

I am a active runner on Chicago northside with constant hamstring-I T Band tightness, I am training for the October 9 Bank of America Marathon & was seeking a personal male sports medicine therapist that was licensed and was a athlete & runner like myself. This is my fourth run & was in search of a individual that was knowledgeable in tendon muscle injuries in the sports area. I have heard from other runners & read great reviews on Mr. Reeves runners repair technique & Energize sports Massage & decided to make an appointment on a Monday night. I called expecting the answering machine and to maybe hear back the next day. Anthony the owner & therapist picked up , He was super nice, An ex college athlete & baseball/Track coach[ Very knowledgeable on runners/hamstring injuries], he made the appointment for me the same day. (I hope I don't encourage everyone to do this as I'm sure he doesn't need calls at the last min. for what I read & heard he is super busy in the summer & fall season). The sports-runners repair stretch therapy was excellent. You could tell he knew how to target the problem areas. I went in to address my overworked arms from being at a desk (been dealing with it for 2 years), plantar fasciitis, and hips/lower abs. The hips/abs are almost completely pain free after one session. I think I've noticed improvements in my arms and feet, but will need more time to tell. I definitely plan on going back & become a regular, He works out of his office condo, Massage room very relaxing . Just walking in his place is so sureal. Rates are very reasonable, especially if you checked the northside-Gold Coast rates. & very few who does sports medicine more

If you are a marathon runner,best stretch-bodywork therapy 4/5/2011

I've been going to many so call sports massage places on the northside & downtown for hamstring/I T Band tightness for months, but Energize Sports Massage on Chicago's northside & Coach. Reeves is the best place to receive a professional real runners repair-stretch therapy- deep tissue massage after a hard day of working out & training. The rates are very affordable, massage room is relaxing & clean. Anthony & his therapists are very experienced. I have seen this establishment on line & by athletic friends who highly recommend Anthony of the excellent body work he does. I always wanted my own personal sports medicine therapist. I love his deep tissue/ trigger point work, took off all my stress away, When I came out the room my neck pain & hamstring issues was all but gone pressure was perfect, we talked afterward, he really shows concerns for his clients, not some high expensive spa's where the therapist have NO KNOWLEDGE of any sports therapy. Absolutely amazing! Finally a licensed sports medicine therapist who is really a runner & athlete more

Look no More if you seek a real sports medicine therapist 9/17/2010

I ran in the Chicago 1/2 marathon & 5k this past Sunday.As usual I had tightness of my hamstrings & calves muscle, plus my feet were tired & sore. My roommate recommed Anthony & Energize Sports massage in Andersonville. He is a runner & training for the Bank of America Marathon next month & has been a client of Mr. Anthony for 4 years. He would come back after his runners repair massage therapy and would tell me he rarely had hamstring tightness because of Mr. Reeves Stretch exercise therapy. I called on Sunday evening & even though be was over schedule, he squeezed me in that evening. I am writing this review for all to read to tell Anthony"" Thank You"" My legs ,lower back, feet are so much at ease The hot towel stretch muscle therapy ther best.. His rates, you cannot compared. I got The new guest 100 min. sports, runners repair, stretch therapy plus steam facial & body wash for just $95.00, I compared the rates on the northside on city search, the cheapest is $100, for just 60 min. & just one therapy treatment.. I told Anthony,I knew you had to be tired, but you gave me 100% top notch service & I will be back especially since the marathon season is here in Chicago, Just the professional & comfort treatment, relax massage room, & total comfort, all i can say, having your own professional sports medicine therapist is something every athlete show have, & Mr. Anthony & Energize is the man for all real athlete's Thank Bud more

My girlfriend suprised me with a sports massage @ Energize. I had been to a local Andersonville spa & was not impress.I really wanted a real deep tissue massage by a real therapist. I look up Anthony & Energize on the net, great reviews & what sold me is that he was a former college athlete & ex trainer plus he works out of his home studio & was walking distance. Very professional, he know about different sports which put me at ease, a real jock male who knows sports & muscle injuries. Massage room very comfortable & relaxing.Stretch therapy, deep tissue, pressure in point, excellent, Hamsting treatment, 4 stars. Rate are great , You receive 4 therapy treatments for the price of one,fantastic. This guy is the real deal if you are a serious athlete.

Are You A Athlete with Hamstring Problems? 5/5/2009

Having seen Mr. Anthony four times in the last 2 months & becoming pain & stress free, I'd highly recommend him to anyone. I am a professional soccer player & in need of regular stretch-leg/ hamstrings & glutes treatment Pros: Very knowledge, relax atmosphere, a therapist who cares, Cons: Call early to RSVP, Energize is in high demands ,Parking more

If you are seeking a total Professional Sports Massage or Deep Tissue, I highly receoomend Anthony @ Energize Sports Massage 12/22/2008

I first encountered Anthony of Energize Sports Massage at a hockey tournament. He was one the massage therapist who help the college teams. The few minutes I spent with Anthony convinced me that I had found a therapist who was skilled & that could address the various muscle issues I've acquired playing ice hockey. I've subsequently had various sports/ stretch, hot/ cold therapy tendon & muscle sessions and can state that Dr. Reeves found the the source of the problem I'm experiencing, work on it, and make it possible for me to return to the ice. One person here mentioned the need to invest in one's body, and I would have to agree. It is not inexpensive, but anything as helpful as this is worth it. I have been to different Spa's, stripmall-massage businesses, and they don't cut it when it comes to providing the informed, professional service an athelete needs, so I recommend Energize Massage to everyone Pros: , great atmosphere, great neighborhood in Andersonville, Rates are the best on the northside , not over priced as most spa's are with lilttle skills in sports massage. Cons: Just be on time, others have appointments more

If you are Running in the Marathon & having leg & muscle pain, I Highly recommend Anthony & Energize Sports Massage in Andersonville 9/23/2008

I am running in this year's Bank of America Marathon, I have been in training for the last 3 months. I did not know there were limited sports massage therapist on the northside, especially therapist who are trained in Runners/Stretch therapy. I went to a couple of places, ""Do not waste your time at Spa's, high rates and all you get is a swedish massage..I did a search on Citysearch and located Anthony & Energize. I read his reviews which are excellent, but still i had my doubts. I called Anthony,he was with a client, but promise to call back in 30 mins. He did and after a very knowledgeable conversation on sports, he mention he was a track runner in college & ran the marathon 7 years ago. After explaing my tendonitis & lower back pain, He took me in on the same day and I had the Sports/runners combo. Guys it was excellent, the reflexology, the leg stretch, hot/ cold treatment, deep tissue, what I also like,Anthony takes the time to listen, and focus on the area of pain.Read his website to convince you, but if you are a serious runner, then Give this guy a call, Thanks for great customer service, Pros: A Runners therapist who knows the muscle-leg tendon structure of the body, I like how his home office is set up, very comfortable Cons: If you are a serious runner, call early to RSVP, I guarantee, he will be booked as the Marathon date get closer,Parking on weekends can he diffcult, just run to appointment & save the headache more

If you want a quality sports massage, Anthony is your man 8/4/2008

At the end of July I did my first half-ironman triathlon and unfortunately did not stretch properly during the days afterward leaving my legs (knees in particular) seized-up, and in a fair amount of pain. I found Anthony online as I was desperately looking for a proper sport massage. Anthony did a great job getting my legs loose enough to begin stretching properly. 2 weeks later I did a second half-ironman and visited Anthony within a few hours of finishing the race to get a massage and stretch. I wish I did that after the 1st race, because my legs feel much better. more

If you are training for the marathon and seek a professional Runner's/Repair massage, I Highly recommend Anthony & Energize Sports Massage 6/26/2008

Just an athletic male who is training for the October Marathon and was seeking a licensed therapist who knows abouts leg/muscle therapy[stretching-reflexology, runner's repair] I did a lot of search and was suprise there are very few licensed male therapist who do professional sports massage therapy. I use Citysearch and came with only two, when I got there one was a spa on foster ave, which the therapist knew nothing about sports or stretch exercise. When I asked him questions on tendon, leg muscle tissue, he had this blanked look. and I was not looking for a male social party standing in towels, just a real massage. I got lucky, a guy who was also a runner, told me about Anthony & Energize Sports Massage. I looked up Energize in Andersonville on Citysearch and read his reviews which were from real athlete's. I also looked up Anthony in AMTA, which he & his business are listed and I knew I struck gold.Just by our conversation, and with him being a avid runner & Cyclist, he knew what therapy to use . I like the home office set, the massage room is very relaxing, aromatherapy perfect. He makes you feel very comfortable, His website very professional & knowledgeable.The massage experience was the best, He has a sports/runners massage combo[Sports-stretch, hot towel, deep tissue,body wash, you just relax on the massage table and get pamper] I was so relax I just balance on the massage table for 10 mins to soak in the whole experience. no muscle pain..The reviews are very real, and I see why he is in demand. Getting a licensed/straight/sports therapist on the northside is rare, getting one who takes his work seriously and is 100% concern about you, and receiving a e-mail of thanks and a appreciation gift, well I am sold. Thanks guy, I hope this review will get you double new clients Pros: A Licensed male therapist with knowledge of sports therapy, Straight & Family man, shows real concern about your health, rates are very reasonable, Andersonville, what a great area Cons: He is the only true runners.sports therapist in Andersonville/northside that i have found, Weekends have been booked because of the marathon, i recommed call early in the week more

I was in Search for a Personal Sports Massage Therapist with the same level of Experience as My Trainer, I highly recommend Anthony @ ENERGIZE 5/8/2008

It is very diffcult locating a professional massage therapist with the knowledge of sports injuries and treating tendon & muscle ache. Especially if you are a male athlete, seeking a licensed male therapist on the northside that is professional & non-sexual. I did a search on City Search and saw ENERGIZE and decided to click on Anthony website. Quite impressive/professional. I decide to give this guy a call and just by the conversation I knew I had found my massage therapist. Anthony is a avid sports fan so if you are into baseball, football, and have the basic jock injuries, he is you guy, he played college ball. The rates are very reasonable, His 85 min. Athletic combo package is the best, great deep tissue & reflexology.Plus receiving a free gym bag after the session, WOW what a promo for new clients, Did not have a gym bag & I really needed one. The fact he is very caring for his clients and just getting tokens gifts, even the high class establishment spa's can't even give away a free pencil. I like the home base office, the room is very relaxing, & after you fill out client info. form, Anthony goes over ever detail deciding on the best therapeutic treatment. You are not rush. I will be a regular client. If you are serious in working out, training and need your own personal massage therapist, call this guy and save yourself a headache . Pros: Expert is Sports, Deep Tissue, stretch therapy, Never had a steam facial, but I will from this point on, Andersonville is a great area, a good beer after your massage will complete your day Cons: Call early, Friday & Saturdays are diffcult, Anthony works for himself and is in demand this time of year, I highly recommed calling early to RSVP more

For Men in Sports who seeks an Professional Licensed Sports Massage Therapist,I highly recommed Energize in Andersonville 3/26/2008

I did not know how hard it would be to seek a male licensed sports therapist on the northside would be. I am a active athlete and train at least 3 times a week. I have a personal trainer who suggested that I seek a personal massage therapist with knowledge of Sports/Muscle-Tendon therapy. Seems easy especially with all the health clubs in Lakeview & Lincoln Park. In Health clubs the therapist mostly give swedish massage, many know that Deep Tissue, Sports massage takes a lot of work & energy and refuse to do this therapy. I am a muscular guy and take harder deep tissue. I had seen ENERGIZE on the internet and read ANthony's reviews and thought I would give him a try. The conversation was professional, his rates are reasonable, and the 85 min. Sports/Deep Tissue was the best, very strong hands & elbow therapy. I like the home office atmosphere, very relaxing and he is a total sports fan, I think we talked Cubs/Sox & Bears for about 1/2 hour, he knows his sports. Anthony is a ex jock/Trainer so it was so refreshing to explain what was hurting and he knew the problem of my hamstring & lumbar back problem. His qualification are in full view. He also did a yoga/thai stretch on my back that cracked and my god the pain disappeared.Anthony is a family man like myself, not to many straight male therapist on the northside that is licensed or even played any sports. Pros: Highly Professional, Expert in Sports, Deep Tissue, Muscle Stretch, Clean.relax atmosphere, Finally a male licensed sports massage therapist on the northside who is straight Cons: Word is getting around about Energize & Anthony, Saturday are very busy, he is in high demand, Call early to reserve, more

I have been in search for a real licensed therapist in the northside area. I have tried several so call therapist who said they knew the art of Deep Tissue/Trigger Point. I tried those spas & health club with no luck. The therapist seem more on rush for time & money than the therapy I was seeking. I just about gave up on this, until I saw Energize. I had seen Anthony ad on the websites and after reading his reviews on Citysearch, I decide to take one more try. Well I finally struck gold.Even in conversation by his professional approach on muscle & tendon strain, I knew that this guy would understand the sports massage I was seeking. His home office is in the heart of Andersonville,great area. The massage room is very relaxing, fireplace in the room and a heated massage table.

Best Deep Tissue Massage therapist on the Northside 1/17/2008

I visited Anthony on several occasions to have him treat the soreness in my right shoulder. After consultation, Anthony showed me several exercises to strengthen and stretch the muscles in my shoulder, and my pain has definately decreased over time. My mobility in that arm has also improved.

Best Sports/Deep Tissue Massage 11/7/2007

As an aging athlete with lots of old injuries, chronic lower back, ITB, hamstring, and foot problems, (yes, I know, just about everything) Anthony/Energize Sports Massage is simply the best. With the help of Anthony this last Summer I played Ultimate Frisbee (very demanding physically), soccer, rode my bike to and from work, and jogged like I was much younger. Best of all, with little or no pain before or after some very hard work outs and tournaments. I quickly became a regular customer. At first I was a little weary given the location, it is in his private residence, but Anthony put me at ease. Anthony has taken the time to really find out what is wrong with my back, legs, and feet. It took a few sessions for him to figure it out, but after that it has been literally the best thing that has happened to my body in a long time. I have recommended him to other friends who run marathons, triatheletes, soccer players, and Ultimate players. Everyone has commented on the excellent massage. Anthony has great hands and knows how to apply pressure to bring relief, but not pain, and relieve soreness/problem areas. If you are looking for a great/excellent deep tissue massage/sports massage with some stretching, then look no further and give Energize/Anthony a call. Energize is simply the best this City has to offer, and I have a membership to the East Bank Club, and tried Cortiva, and other massages that I have compared to base my opinion on for this review. Pros: Anthony is an expert Massage Therapist, Athony has been an athlete so he understands Cons: Parking can be challenging, it is his private residence, but it only bothered me the first time more
