Wendy Hering, LMT

Growing up, I threw snowballs, baseballs, javelins, and practiced shooting a hockey puck millions of times. 

I wanted to win an Olympic gold medal and play in the NHL.  After several knee and shoulder surgeries, it finally dawned on my that I needed to start paying attention.  This led me to a career in massage therapy after realizing the profound effect massage had on my ice hockey damaged knee. 

I wish I had done things differently; I now try to help everyone pay more attention to what they are doing to their one and only body.

I hope my experiences with some of the most intelligent people in the world of strength and conditioning will forever change how we look at movement, strength, and mobility.
