Massage is a powerful tool for both the athlete and the non-athlete. Any athlete can benefit from massage, and it is most important for massage to fit the athlete’s need and training plan. Athletes tend to know their bodies very well, and it’s easier for an athlete therapist to understand the muscular need of any sport. An athlete can benefit substantially from the correct massage, appropriately matched with their particular training cycle. For all sports, to train effectively, you need the right tools to succeed and massage should be one of those tools. Whether you are training for the Olympics or your first 5k, use massage as a recovery tool and allow it to help you reach your athletic goals.

Marcella Tancreti, Licensed Massage Therapist
Desiring to experience the open-minded, west coast mentality, Marcella left her home town of Omaha, NE and moved to Eugene, OR, where she did an internship at Oregon Rehabilitation Center for brain and spinal cord injuries. It was a very hands-on job, with all professionals working together to provide continuity of rehab care to their patients. Her team experiences at ORC shaped the way Marcella now works in her massage practice, which has made her a great fit for the PACE family. She uses a mix of deep tissue, trigger point, myofascial release, proprioceptive muscular facilitation, & neuromuscular education. She is currently studying cranial sacral and visceral manipulation.
