Bodywork and Sports Massage Therapist Kurt Dery at Athenaroma

I wanted to take a moment to send a shout out to the best massage therapist in Washington state, and one of the best I have ever had work on me; Kurt Dery (LMT#MA00019958) at Athenaroma here in downtown Seattle.  Kurt's understanding of Anatomy and Physiology is second to none which only enhances what seems to be an innate ability to find the SOURCE of your pain and eliminate it. 

I know a number of local martial artists, MMA fighters, and other combat sports participants view this blog from time to time, and if you are in need of a massage or need some help rehabbing an injury to get you back in the fight quicker Kurt is your man. 

You can book online or call:  206-919-3404 / 212 Belmont Ave E. Seattle, WA.

Massage - Body Work in Seattle with Steph Gaspar

An integral, yet sadly overlooked, aspect of training is recovery.  Recovery in terms of relaxation (time off), sleep, proper nutrition, and bodywork are essential to any athlete at any level.  Unfortunately these much needed areas are the first to be cut from the budget of us "Average Joe" athletes.

For those in the Seattle, WA. area you would be foolish not to call Stephanie Gaspar immediately and set up an appointment!  I have had lots of bodywork done over the past 20 years from very talented healers, coupled with a degree from the New Mexico School of Natural Therapeutics, I think I have a decent read on talented body workers, and Steph is one of the top ones I have ever seen!

Regardless of the outcome of tomorrow's tournament Steph has helped open up my shoulder, neck, and hips in just a couple of sessions.  She takes certain health plans, and her pedigree reads like a "what haven't you done" story as she has her BSc / CSMS / LMT and has extensive experience in psychology and traumatic rehabilitation.  Those athletes reading my blog will take note that Steph spent several years working with the Seattle Mariners (one downside is that she is a Boston Dead Sox fan, but you should be able to work around that;)!

Working out of University Chiropractic (big shout out to Dr. Ray who will be happy to straighten out your neck) Steph Gaspar can be reached at 206-525-2811.
