Although relatively new to massage, I am not new to sports performance, health and wellness and physical conditioning of the body. My children are both participate in high performance sports and I have been an avid bodybuilder, health and wellness advocate for as long as I can remember. Sports Massage is just another way, that I believe, athletes can prepare their bodies for performing and should be incorporated as part of a multidisciplinary approach to athletic performance and over health. I firmly believe that Massage Therapy and Sports Performance are strongly linked. 

Sports Massage Therapy and Sports Performance
The intent of sport massage is to provide specific therapy geared towards athletes who required help in preparing for events, recovery from those events & generalized prevention & treatment of injuries.
