massage for athletes
Massage therapy is an essential part of any athlete’s regular training regimen. Not only does it promote relaxation and mind/body wellness, it also helps the body heal after grueling workouts. TFP welcomes the services of massage therapists Allen Walker & Markay Chamberlain. Please feel free to email them if you have any questions before committing to a session. Please contact Allen, Kelly or Markay to schedule an appointment.
Allen has been serving athletes in the Northern Suburbs and Chicago for the past 20 years, often volunteering his time for CHICAGO MARATHON participants, University of Illinois swimmers and Northwestern students. All of his sessions are based on Sports Massage Techniques which would include body joint mobilizations, active and passive stretching, and tense and relax methods to help facilitate an increase in range of motion. Depending on the athlete’s needs, other modalities employed can range from Deep Tissue, Reflexology, Energy Balancing, Shiatsu, Trigger Point, and Jin Shin Do. Allen resides in nearby Gurnee and is a proud parent of 2 girls, Olivia and Elizabeth. His hobbies are beach volleyball, running, tennis and music.
