Let me begin with explaining why I do this, why I’m a Massage Therapist. I’ve been a pretty active person most of my life—running, martial arts, weight training—so I’ve had my share of injuries, aches and pains.  In my 20’s, I experienced my first massage session with an elderly lady that had the ability to find the root of my issues.  I found this to be remarkable because the root was not necessarily where the pain was.  Over the next [...]

Recovery Meets Physical Therapy – Managing Tennis Injuries with a Physical Therapist Tennis, like many other sports, has an inherent risk for injury.
