Massage Clinic Staff Brian (Massage)

Brian (Massage)


Performance Recovery Therapist

  • Licensed Massage Therapist
  • Certified Fascial Stretch Therapist Level 3 Medical
  • Training and Development Coordinator
  • RockTape Performance Certified

Brian moved from his warm home in New Mexico to the brutal winters of Michigan in December of 2013. Having just graduated from the Massage Therapy Institute in Las Cruces, New Mexico, Brian was willing to brave the snow and cold for an opportunity to become a part of the talented team at Tri-Covery. Brian continues grow in knowledge and experience under Jeff Kong’s mentorship. He is continually adding to his training and certifications in order to give his clients the best there is to offer in massage and flexibility therapy.

A Multitude Of Massage Techniques

Trigger point therapy, myofascial release and sports massage are some of the key techniques that Brian specializes in. Have you ever felt like you had a “knot” in an area of muscle? That’s what we call a trigger point. Brian is great at locating those painful spots and bringing relief. Trigger point therapy is complementary to myofascial release therapy. Both techniques release tension in the muscle fascia, offering relief from pain and stiffness. Brian is a great communicator and is always happy to explain the why and how behind his massage techniques. He believes that the more clients understand about their own bodies and how they work, the more they can benefit from massage therapy.

When Brian isn’t on the job, he works at staying fit and enjoying time with his wife. He enjoys hiking during warm weather and rock climbing back in New Mexico. He says he loves the snow in Michigan, but even after three years, hasn’t learned to appreciate the deep freeze we call winter. Schedule an appointment with Brian and get to know him for yourself. He’ll be happy to help you keep your body flexible and ready for action.
