EVENT: 2019 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2019
I have been a massage therapist in the OKC metro area since 2000, with the majority of my clients being runners and triathletes. I knew in massage school that I wanted to specialize in sports massage (I started running in 1995 to lose weight and have completed about 10 half-marathons since 2007).
Since then, I have endeavored to add more tools to my toolbox to help my athlete-clients recover faster and achieve their goals, including kinesiotaping, cupping, and IASTM (instrument-assisted soft tissue manipulation).
I have learned that my clients usually have a team of sports med professionals to keep them healthy (PT, chiro, ortho doctor), including myself.)
MASSAGE THERAPY FOUNDATION
The Massage Therapy Foundation is one of a limited number of non-profit organizations that has been awarded entries to the Boston Marathon. I'm excited to announce that I have been selected as one of four (4) runners to race for the Massage Therapy Foundation and the John Hancock Non-Profit Marathon Program at the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2019.
This fundraiser will help generate money for research on how massage can help improve the quality of life for so many people. YOUR donation will directly and indirectly help people who, without your support, may not otherwise receive massage therapy or realize its benefits.
