Massage with Inka
Inka has been part of the SBK community for nearly two years. As an athlete, bodyworker, and regular to crossfit workouts, she understands first hand repetitive movement patterns and the stress they can put on the body. This familiarity allowed her to learn a wide variety of treatment techniques to help prevent overuse injuries. She strongly believes that the mind and the body are connected and that regular exercise and bodywork is a key component to maintaining one’s health.
Inka is offering sports massage geared towards breaking down adhesions, relieving trigger points, unadhering myofascial restrictions, and increasing range of motion. Techniques include Myofascial Release and Trigger Point Therapy.
Inka will be at CrossFit on Sundays from 10am-2pm, and Sunday evening during open gym from 6pm-8pm. She also takes appointments in her home office in Boerum hill during the week in case you can't make it to the gym on Sunday.
- 30 minute sessions: $60
- package of 2 (or 1 hour): $100

"In the pantheon of “SBK’ers That Can Help You Fix Your Shit” Inka is a surging star. I spent a good 35 years not paying all that much attention to mobility, flexibility and overall body awareness. As a result I was experiencing all the problems one can expect from serious mobility problems. Once I started Crossfit my mobility issues caused serious deficiencies in my ability to perform many of the movements properly and began resulting in injuries. I started to focus on improving my mobility, educating myself and looking for assistance. I found quite a bit of help which has brought me a long way but I was still having a lot of trouble with my hips and my shoulder girdle (ok, and everything else, really).
I started seeing Inka a couple months ago and was immediately struck by not only her knowledge of anatomy as well as mechanical and physical physiology but also her incredible intuition. Time and time again she has zeroed in on an area of particular tightness or adhesion and has applied just the right amount of pressure/manipulation...
In a short amount of time Inka has truly helped me improve my mobility, not just through her body work (although that has been a big factor) but also through educating me in what I should be doing on my own to advance my goals. She has produced more than one “A-Ha” moment in explaining to me why a tightness in one area might cause a deficiency five steps down the chain and then explaining what I need to do to fix it.
And the kicker is that during the majority of this intense work Inka is somehow able to make you feel like you are just getting a great massage."

"I've known Inka for nearly 20 years, and have always been in awe of her warmth and generosity of spirit. She combines her strong understanding in the holistic and therapeutic aspects of massage with her training, knowledge and athletic background to efficiently and effectively identify, address, and relieve my (myriad) muscular dysfunctions. I feel markedly better after every session with her, but more importantly have a greater understanding of my specific personal issues and limitations and how to address them going forward."
