You take care of everyone else. Every day. It’s important to take some time for yourself. You might have back, neck, and shoulder pain from picking up your little human, achy legs from pushing a stroller at the zoo, or sore arms from playing catch in the backyard.
Your dedication to raising a child is admirable and important, and they deserve to have you at your best.
If you’re training for a Couch to 5k, playing Volleyball after work, prepping for the next Ironman event, or are a professional hockey player, Sports Massage is an important piece of your training. Based on your sport and where you are in your training regimen, your body will have different needs to help keep you competing at a top level. Regular massage will help prevent injuries, help recover after a grueling event, and help you train for the next one.
Busy, working humans!
You work hard every day. Whether you spend your days behind a desk, sitting in an airplane, or laboring outdoors, you likely will end with pain, tension, stress, and the need to calibrate your body. That’s why we do therapeutic massage and bodywork, to help you keep going in tip-top shape.
Massage can improve your energy and focus, reduce pain, lower stress, and help relieve muscle trauma. That can all help increase your productivity, and your ability to push through day to day life. You get your car’s oil changed every 3000 miles to keep it running smoothly, isn’t it time for your tune up?
We take on an integrative approach to therapeutic massage and bodywork, which means we will incorporate whatever modalities necessary to help you achieve optimal results. This means there NO extra charge when deep tissue, cupping, acupressure and other modalities are incorporated into your session.
There will be a short intake before every session, and that will not detract from your ‘on the table’ time. If you scheduled a 60 minute massage, then you’ll be on the table for 60 minutes.

What our clients experience
"Ross helped me with back pain that wasn't allowing me to work. I came to him unable to sit up unassisted without shooting pain. By the end of my massage session, I stood up on my own forgetting I had trouble before! His massage therapy had not only immediate results but lasting relief too. Grateful!"
- Justyna N - Madison, WI
"Ross is a spectacular massage therapist! He has a very calming energy that really helped me to relax during the massage. Ross addressed all of my areas of concern and made sure that the massage pressure was just right, adjusting as needed. I 10/10 recommend Luminescence Therapeutic Massage and will only be scheduling massages with Ross in the future!"
- Tiesha B - Madison, WI
"Great experience. I Had a lot of pain and Ross knew how to help with various techniques. Within a couple of days I was pain free! Highly recommend!!"

About Ross Glanc, LMT
Working at a desk, running a marathon, pushing a broom, repairing an engine, chasing your kids, or driving a car; everything we do causes stressors to our bodies. These stressors can affect us both mentally and physically whether we're aware of it or not.
Hi! I'm Ross, founder of Luminescence Therapeutic Massage. After experiencing and witnessing a wide variety of stress, fatigue, aches, and sore muscles over my lifetime, I realized that I wanted to help people treat and prevent these everyday ailments before they become chronic or debilitating.
Through my practice and education at East-West Healing Arts Institute in Madison, WI, I learned the skills to help people heal and relax using a wide range of techniques, combining both Eastern and Western modalities to give a full, complete, and restful massage experience.
Whether you have a sore neck, carpal tunnel, sciatic pain, shin splints, or need to de-stress, it will be my pleasure to help you.
Some modalities I incorporate include Swedish, Tui Na, Deep Tissue, Reflexology, Acupressure, Cupping, Gua Sha, Aromatherapy, among others. I will tailor every massage to meet your specific needs.
Please feel free to contact me and let me know if you have any questions.

Your health, comfort, and safety are very important.
We will begin every session with an assessment of your needs and listen to your concerns, then plan your bodywork to best suit you.
We welcome your feedback throughout and after your visit. Please let us know at anytime if we can make accommodations to make your experience comfortable and provide optimal results.
We recommend you drink plenty of water prior and after your massage. Hydration is key with flexibility and pliability of your muscles and to prevent cramping. Hydration allows the movements during massage to be received better during the massage, and to help recover after.
We encourage respiratory health etiquette. To best protect our clients, we will wear a facial mask upon request.
Madison & Dane County have no current mask mandate in place as of 3/1/22. Our clients are not mandated / required to wear a mask, but you are still welcome to wear one.*
*This is subject to change and we will do our best to notify clients in advance.
