Massage Therapy

massageWe’ve enlisted the services of two professional massage therapists, Rosie Manning of Stowe and Rebecca Hislop of Montpelier. Both are professionally trained, employed, skilled therapists. Even better – we’re covering their fees, which means your massages on event day are free of charge. Of course, if you feel so inclined, tips will be accepted.

Both therapists are capable of assisting with the pain or discomfort of martial arts or life in general, but they’re just as capable of helping you relax. Whether you’re looking for a massage before competition, after competition, or as a break from all of the chaos of the day, we’ve got you covered. These services aren’t only for competitors – anyone in attendance is welcome to partake.

And now for some fine print: it’s important to understand that this work you receive is for general stress relief and is not to diagnose or treat any medical condition. The individual providing treatment will do their best to meet your needs, but there is no guarantee of any outcome. You may be asked to sign a release form before you receive any treatment. It’s up to you to speak with the therapist about any issues you may have. Drinking water before and after treatment is recommended. Finally, any receipt of massage therapy is done at your own risk.
