Tracy Rupp’s business, Rupp Massage, is specializes sports recovery therapy.
“There’s a lot of things you can do with (massage). You can specialize in craniosacral therapy, women’s issues and relaxing massage and things like that,” Rupp said. “That was never a focus that would work for me. I knew I wanted to focus on recovery more closely.”
Some of Rupp Massage’s offerings are an infrared sauna, a detox foot bath, an oxygen bar, two kinds of cupping therapy, Graston therapy and hot stone therapy, among others.
Rupp, a Noblesville resident, said there’s no upcharge to the therapies. If a patron wants a 60-minute massage and Rupp uses several therapeutic methods, the massage costs the same.
“Some people say, ‘Here’s what’s going on,’ and I use everything I have to see what works for them the most,” he said. “There are times the muscle or body won’t let go with something, so maybe we start off first with hot stone and then they’ll be relaxed and I can get in and work (the muscle).”
Rupp’s goal is to achieve results through intentional methods opposed to a tradiational spa massage. He doesn’t accept insurance but does accept HSA payments. A 60-minute massage is $70 and a 90-minute massage is $100. Massages can’t be booked within 30 minutes of an existing appointment..
Rupp’s Castleton office, 8202 Clearvista Parkway, Suite 9a, Indianapolis, has been open for two years but he’s worked as a massage therapist for nearly seven years. For more, visit ruppmassage.com.
