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

  • 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.

  • “Jeff’s expert knowledge of fitness, strengthening, and conditioning exercises really helped us get started on a simple in home program to help us stay fit and keep our weight in control. After only a couple of visits he was able to teach us dozens of routines that we could work on in our home without having to invest in any expensive equipment. Jeff is such a personable professional, he makes doing your exercises fun. Thanks to Jeff we now have more energy and feel our bodies are better toned! Also, his messages will do wonders for any tense muscles or stiffness you may be experiencing. If you want expert, personalized fitness training we highly recommend Tri-Covery Massage & Fitness.”

  • “A great guy with healing hands and a kind heart – thanks so much Jeff for the many times you put me back together, helping me to extend my hockey career (Still playing at age 62).”

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • HOLY COW! I went to Steve for a massage following a week of golfing. I was experiencing so much back pain and had been doing the usual motrin/heating pad. After the deep tissue work and some related stretching, I am beyond thrilled. I can move without pain. I am shocked by the results. I am forever grateful and Tri-Covery will be a ritual for health and strength.

  • 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.

  • When I was training for my first half ironman in 2012, I asked my friends for some advice. They both recommended I go to Tri-Covery and I’ve been going ever since. If you’re doing any type of hard training, I highly recommend adding Tri-Covery as part of your regimen. I see Brian Anzures and he is great; He listens to me whine about my aches/pains of the day and provides helpful feedback (e.g., stretches and movements to help with my issues)!

    Becky M.
  • I’m so glad I tried out Tri-Covery Massage & Fitness. I’ve had SI-joint pain for 10 years with very little relief from steroid injections, various prescription drugs, two different chiropractors, and two rounds of physical therapy (not to mention lots of money spent on MRIs and doc appointments). I haven’t been able to run in years; sitting for more than 20 minutes would aggravate it; even walking could trigger stabbing pain. After my second visit with Jeff, I began to experience a RELIEF from pain on a daily basis.

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

  • I have been going to Jeff for Spring of 2015. Having had multiple orthopedic surgeries and resulting soft tissue damage, I use his therapy to manage my pain. I cannot say enough good things about Jeff as a person, and as a therapist. I have been to other therapists over the years since a hip surgery gone wrong, and he is by far the best. I would highly recommend his services for any type of injury or trauma needs management. He will do his best to listen and work with you, giving you 100 percent. My only complaint is I didn’t discover Tri-Covery sooner!

  • 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.
