track on scholarship at the University of South Carolina at
Aiken where she earned a B.S. in Exercise Science and Biology.
Collette uses her sports and exercise background,
combined with massage techniques to aid injury rehabilitation
We believe that a proper training regimen combines
sport specific activities, proper nutrition, flexibility exercises,
and massage therapy. Sports massage incorporates different techniques
designed to reduce recovery time, increase muscle and joint
range of motion, and manually break down scar tissue. Consequently,
sports massage can not only alleviate pain suffered from injury,
but also help lessen or prevent injury occurrence. Athletes
of any level should integrate massage therapy into their regular
training regimen and embrace the benefits.
