Jeff Kong, Owner, Principal Therapist and Trainer

Jeff Kong

Jeff Kong has built Tri-Covery around his unique blend of experiences as an athlete, trainer and massage therapist. Client and professional referrals account for the continued growth of Tri-Covery.

Sports trainers/coaches, physicians and other therapists frequently send their clients to Tri-Covery to experience the benefits of the specialized approach and therapies offered here.

Sports Trainer/Massage Therapist

Jeff received his massage therapy training under the late Irene Gauthier, known nationally as “The Grandmother of Massage,” founder of the Irene’s Myomassology Institute. In 1999, Jeff began gaining experience as both a sports trainer and a massage therapist. It was during this time that Jeff discovery how well the two applications complemented each other and could benefit his clients.

By 2006, Jeff’s unique combination of massage and sports training had developed a strong clientele of endurance athletes such as marathoners, triathletes, adventure racers and cyclists. His skills were helping many athletes recover from their strenuous athletic training and injuries.

Tri-Covery Massage and Flexibility

In 2010, Jeff stepped out on his own to fulfill his vision for a new type of massage therapy facility – Tri-Covery. At Tri-Covery, Jeff and his highly-trained staff, deliver the most effective therapies available for improvement of physical dexterity and recovery from injuries.

TESTIMONIALS

  • “I want to thank Jeff for being a positive and understanding force in my recovery from Back surgery. He also has helped me gain a love of exercise and messages. The kindness and patience I have received from Jeff has helped me understand how important it is to exercise and to keep fit. It is a work in progress and I am happy to be working with Jeff.”

  • “Thank you, Jeff, for getting me through two marathons in two months!”

  • Tri-covery is a place to find serious sports massage. I’m disappointed that Yelp! has massage listed under “beauty and spas” since what you’ll find here is more of a “treatment for sore, overused muscles”. While the suite itself is a little hard to find, the space is cozy and inviting. Jeff is an easy going friendly guy who takes the time to get to know his clients, what they need, and what they’re looking for when they come in.

    I cannot say enough good things about Jeff or his work. In 2006 I decided, against my body’s better wishes to become a runner and triathlete. As a result, I’ve been working with him since 2007 or 08 (when he was working out of another establishment). But now he has his own place! Jeff is a very talented, reliable sports massage therapist with a wide range of knowledge. In addition to getting help recovering from my various athletic endeavors, I’ve learned so much about how muscles in the human body work together, and things to do to help keep from getting hurt. I would not be where I am today (running more, slightly faster miles) without him.

    So, next time you overdo it mountain biking, or realize you can’t quite turn your head to the left anymore, this is the place to go. The next time you want a “spa day” with your friends…I can’t help you. I’m sure there are plenty of those places around, too.

  • My daughter had a stretching session with Steve before her high school league meet. She PR’d in all of her events, made her 2 state cuts, dropped a ton of time and got All League! Thanks Steve!

  • Jeff did lots of stretching with me on my first visit, talking me through every single one and enlightening me about my own muscles and how various ones were affecting my SI joint area. My second and third visits were more massage-focused and it seems he’s some sort of muscle-joint-bone whisperer, because I’ve noticed a significant reduction of aches and stabs in my pelvis that I would normally feel multiple times a day. I can’t even fully explain how cool it was on my second visit when Jeff found some painful areas near my SI joint and literally worked them free of that pain. It would start out painful when he touched, but he would (gently) persist and the pain would dissipate. It was amazing.
    I would highly recommend Jeff and his team if you’re dealing with chronic pain. I have no idea how my SI-joint got to be so jacked up over the years, but it’s finally receiving what it needs.

  • “I have been seeing Jeff now for several years, and I can say without any hesitation, that he is the finest massage therapist in the land. Not only is he skilled and knowledgeable, but he is also one of the nicest people you will ever come across. Jeff takes the time to access your needs and concerns, and then skillfully goes to work on your problem areas. I would recommend Jeff to anyone who desires massage therapy delivered in a relaxing, friendly and professional environment.”

  • Jeff and the whole Tri-Covery staff are great and the best in the business!

    Scott P.
  • “As both an athlete and a personal trainer, I understand the benefits of sports massage first-hand. When my body needs a rejuvenating massage, I call Jeff. If a friend, family member or training client can benefit from sports massage, the only name I give them is Jeff Kong. Very few people have the combined skill set of athlete, trainer and massage therapist with a functional knowledge of the body like Jeff. I never hesitate to recommend him, and you shouldn’t hesitate to call him.”

  • Lynn was amazing! She worked my tight glutes that have been plaguing my runs for the last three weeks. I limped in and walked out with very little pain. My favorite parts were her obvious knowledge/skill, and that I also got a massage that actually helped me. I will be back Wednesday!

  • As an athlete, recovery is just as important as my workouts. Jeff did an incredible job on loosening up my locked-down hips and back and I am ready for the Chicago Marathon this weekend. I’ve gone to many massage therapists in the past, and would definitely go back to Tri-Covery for recovery purposes in the future. Thanks, Jeff for allowing me to touch my toes again.

  • I started going to Tri-Covery almost a year ago to recover after a strongman competition and prepare me for my upcoming football season. I was awful at making myself stretch and foam roll regularly, but after that session I realized just how tight my muscles were. Chris did a great job and he showed me stretches I can do on my own to help in between sessions with him. He was a great help throughout my football season and I noticed I was a lot more explosive. I definitely trust Chris with any athletic event/issue that arises.

  • Tri-Covery offers a unique blend of techniques kind of like massage, stretch and physical therapy all mixed into one. Jeff and his team are trained in cutting edge therapies that are similar to what pro and elite athletes get from their team trainers in order to keep their performance optimal. They use a variety of methods and things that just aren’t widely available or that your average masseuse/therapist really knows about.

    As a casual athlete and amateur runner, triathlete and weight lifter, I found my body getting tighter and tighter over the years of training causing injuries and longer recovery times. I’ve tried deep tissue massage, chiropractic care, physical therapy, foam rolling, yoga/stretching with only minimal results. Tri-Covery has given me by far the best solution for my severe tightness and exercise related discomfort. The results are fast and pretty dramatic. I was almost ready to give up running until I started seeing Becky. Now I’m ready to sign up for my next half marathon. And that’s after 3 sessions.

    I’ve seen Jeff, Becky and Chris and all three are amazing therapists. They really understand the way the body’s muscle and connective tissue work together. When you come to them with a problem, they can figure out exactly what’s causing it–and often it’s different than what you think it is–and how to fix it. This place is a definite must for everyone experiencing soft tissue issues or injury, especially sports related. Best of all, Jeff and his team are deeply caring people and it’s clear they are passionate about helping clients become pain free and able to pursue their physical goals.
