I’m looking forward to getting back in the classroom next year. 😊


I am thrilled to receive my complementary copies of Sports Massage for Injury Care translated into simple Chinese. Many thanks to my publisher, Human Kinetics, for their ongoing support of my work. 🙏💯


It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood. 😎


Storm clouds brewing over Pike’s Peak.


Going through a box of items from my volunteer massage time at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. Forgot I had this belt buckle. ❤️


Double rainbow this afternoon after a light rain.


One of my long-term clients, now in his 90s, has been a track and field athlete for the last 60 years! His focus has always been the pole vault, but it’s no longer possible both for him to do the vault. I saw him today and he told me he has been practicing the shotput for an upcoming competition.❤️ we joked about him winning his age group, and then he told me there are a couple of guys who have been doing the shotput for 50 years who are way better than he is. Lol.


A fun new addition to my office.😎


Let’s try more love and compassion in 2022. ❤️🙏


I have the BEST clients.

Garage demolition here at the office is proceeding nicely.


True dat!


We finally got our Christmas lights up!!


It’s a cat standoff!!


I was excited to receive the Korean translation of my book, Sports Massage for Injury Care, in the mail today. Many thanks to my publisher, Human Kinetics, for their efforts on my behalf.


I have some new additions to my client photo gallery. :-)

I’m always honored to receive a signed photo from my active clients, thanking me for my help.

One of the pleasures of a sports massage career is living vicariously through the athletic achievements of others. 😍


My 80 year old client had a spinal fusion. Her surgeon printed a 3-D model of her spine in order to decide where exactly to place the hardware. Then he gave her the model.😊
My inner anatomy geek was thrilled to see it. 😊


I’ve had my Achedaway Pro for quite awhile now and I’m enjoying it, so are my clients. I just received an additional set of tips that usually come with the A3 model, to add more variety to my massage offerings. Thanks 😊


Just three weeks to go before I travel to Eugene to care for our Olympic hopefuls.


June 22, I will be heading to the US Olympic Trials at Hayward Field in Eugene, OR, as part of the medical staff supporting the athletes as they strive to achieve their dreams!

Massage Tools Podcast - YouTube

Awhile back I was interviewed by Kelly Cox on his Massage Tools Podcast. We covered a wide range of topics, including my history, writing books, and the state of the profession. We talked for a long time and Kelly had the good sense to divide the podcast into 5 video segments on YouTube! Let me know if you watch any of it. 😉

Table for one? Sports massage is great for prevention, recovery, and treatment. Also excellent for general stress reduction during these “trying times.”
