ADRIAN  BUTUC,   Board certified massage therapist  

                     "I have  been doing massages for over 20 years and I am still amazed of its  benefits. I have found that the power of massage is one of the most  effective and instinctive healing forces.''                                       Adrian graduated from National Academy of Physical  Education, Romania , 1991. As a student, he learned  about the "culture of athletic training'' from his Eastern European professors  and coaches, whose athletes had dominated the world's sports for decades.  They all agreed that performance not only comes from the physical  training itself, but from physiological and psychological recovery as  well. Besides hard work, sleeping, and the nutrition for sustaining the  effort , the body needs some form of  therapy to link them all. The  concept brought together three main procedures: massage, which is the stimulation of blood flow by rubbing and stroking the skin, energy  balancing, which uses pressure to release any blockages in the channels, and therapeutic manipulation of the inert tissue to correct misalignments of the musculo-skeletal system.  

 

 IRENE MERCIONES, licensed massage therapist 

     Irene is our massage technician. She came from Mexico and she is  specialized in cupping therapy, a form of alternative medicine in which a  local suction is created on the skin, mobilizing blood flow, and  promoting healing. Today, a lot of Olympic athletes are using cupping  therapy as a form of recovery .
