Injury prevention

Greetings fellow Triathletes! I would like to share a story regarding and injury I sustained while training for the KS IM. I pulled my calf muscle to a point where it was painful to run, swim and bike, my race was only two weeks away and I trained to hard to not go for it. I went to Deenise for some therapeutic work to help expedite the healing process in my calf. I was a regular customer and knew how well she worked with athletes. Deenise worked my injury so that I was capable of racing with no pain or discomfort.

If you are an athlete and are not getting deep tissue massages for recovery and healing, I highly recommend that you try it. Deenise is very well educated in sports therapy and you will benefit from the massages. Deenise...I miss your massage sessions! - Gina McCloskey – Tri Club Member

Just got back from Thailand and had several awesome massages. None were as good as yours. ☺ thanks for being the massage that I'll grade everyone else's against. - Jason Berdou - Tri Club Member

Deenise's deep tissue massage was amazing before and after the Ironman 70.3. It was worth the time and the money. You are missing out if you haven’t tried it yet. Would recommend to all Triathlete’! I felt so good and my body was relaxed and ready to work harder than ever! Thanks Deenise, I will miss you. We are heading out next week! Catherine LaRose - Tri Club Member

Deenise is one of the best massage therapists that I've had the pleasure to encounter over the many years that I've sought out massage treatments.  I was delighted to find such a high quality therapist so close to my home.  An hour with Deenise greatly relieved chronic pain that I had been experiencing for years.  Her gifted hands helped heal pain that I had been dealing with for too long.  Thank you Deenise for your powerful, healing hands!

– Sheila

Deenise can fix you! After regular treatments with Body Kneads, my life-degradation issues, which doctors, surgeons, pharmacists, and even other massage specialists couldn't help, ultimately improved beyond all expectations. With Deenise I got a holistic experience that included not only the right therapeutic massage but also personalized consultation on stretching, exercise, and other health and wellness tools. And in addition to my physical and psychological well-being, my fly fishing skills are also better (also courtesy of this extraordinary health professional).

– Tom , retired Army

You are the first therapist in my experience who could do both at the same time. After a session with you, not only were all the 'kinks' expertly worked out, but I had reached a very deep state of relaxation as well.
