Professional Philosophy

At Contender Wellness we believe that no body is the same. We do not all suffer the same aches and pains, and we do not respond to treatment the same. We pride ourselves in being well rounded to provide you with a custom treatment, utilizing various soft tissue modalities. We are a small group of therapists that have a passion for what we do. With each of us being active, or an athlete, we have a deeper understanding of the active persons body. Our goal is to help improve overall wellness for athletes, the casual gym goers, and people who just love to be active.

'Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.' - Lou Holtz
