Coach Johnny Shelby
14+ years massage therapy experience.


I completed my massage therapy training in 2010 with the Memorial Hermann Massage and Spa Therapy School in Houston, Texas. I'm a full time endurance coach and licensed massage therapist specializing in deep tissue and sports massage. I understand the demands of your training and competition and my goal is to help you stay in the game. For those looking to relax no worries you do have options. I do provide a relaxing Swedish massage and deep heat hot stone massage with specially handcrafted synergy stones. Confused with all the different types of massage therapy modalities? Don't worry, I'll apply the appropriate technique whether you're looking to relax , back pain relief, deep tissue massage or something more specialized such as post-event sports massage to reduce your recovery time. Experience an individualized massage session that will meet your bodywork expectations.

The course of treatment will be accessed and determined by YOU and YOUR licensed Massage Therapist prior to each bodywork session for the most therapeutic outcome.



Massage therapy is vital for the success of both recreational and professional athletes. As anyone involved in sports knows, every single day requires the use of a competitor's skills and energy. Continuous strain on the muscles can lead to soreness, fatigue, cramps, or even permanent damage if the problem is not taken care of as soon as possible.

Training every single day will have an acummulative effect on the muscles. At first the soreness will seem fine and typically goes away with a few light stretches and recovery time, but as time goes on the tension on the muscles will only continue to grow and increase the chances of injury. Well timed sport massages within an athlete's training program is recommended to maximize performance.

Most athletes already incorporate a massage into their training programs. If you are not one of them then now is the time to be. A sports massage by us is the only way to completely rejuvenate the muscles from the hardship they faced after training, racing, a hard training bock, or a tough game. Many different strokes and techniques are used to loosen tense areas to help them relax. I typically perform a variety of different massage methods into a single session in order to provide the best for our clients.
