If you are looking for a sports massage therapist in Bend, Oregon, you have come to the right place! See what others have said about Andy Libert.
I would highly recommend Andy Libert and his Libert Myoskeletal Massage for massage therapy and stress management. He has created a beautiful work space/studio within his home where he can teach and share with his clients various modalities of healing. Andy has a unique, wonderful and holistic approach to healing, a truly integrated approach. He has so much to offer in the way of knowledge about how the body functions anatomically, and he has a truly compassionate and caring way of motivating his client to feel more comfortable in their bodies. During his sessions, Andy teaches the importance of correct movement within the body and strength-based exercises to enhance one's mobility and flexibility. Primarily, he is an amazing massage therapist who brings a unique and specialized expertise to his client. In my sessions with Andy, he has helped to eliminate chronic pain in my feet and legs through all of the above techniques. What I would most like people to know about Andy is that he is not only a professional in every sense of the word, but a friendly, talented and very caring individual who I feel has helped me tremendously and am blessed to know.
From teaching me how to swim to helping me learn how to run without encouraging injury, Andy has been crucial in my first six years as a triathlete. Andy differs from other trainers I have worked with in that he constantly educates himself on ways to make those he works with more successful. His caring nature and dedication motivate you and help push you beyond your perceived capabilities. Andy is not only a great trainer but excels at his massage techniques. He can find a way to release muscles like no other therapist I have been to. I cant even imagine what I would be doing without him.
Andy is marvelous therapist! He understands how the body functions in motion and can apply a wide variety of modalities to address any injury. Andy uses tremendous skill to assess what is going on and treats his clients like individuals rather than forcing a particular, standard treatment plan. I enjoy working with Andy and get great results!
I do a lot of crossfit and weight lifting for exercise, but I needed help on my running. Andy had been highly recommended to me as a running coach, so I went to see him for a one hour session. He was amazing. He made me feel comfortable, and I learned great running techniques from him. I took 2 minutes off my pace! Later, I had a shoulder injury that was quite painful. I felt it needed some deep tissue massage, but I was hesitant, because Iíve never received a massage before. I wanted somebody that I could trust. I went to Andy again and knew immediately that he knew exactly what I needed.The results were more than I had hoped for. I highly recommend Andy with the Libert Myoskeletal Massage.
Thanks be to Andy! While training for a half marathon, I injured my knee in 2010. 6 weeks after the allotted time to heal, it was still painful to run. Being in the health and wellness field, I went to specialist after specialist for 2 years. To no avail, I almost gave up. Then I found Andy. Unlike the other guys, he worked with the source and root of the problem. It took some time to get back in the swing of things, but he was the only patient and persistent person to get me back running. Now, I run pain free, and my gait and stride are faster after my injury thanks to Andy working with me so precisely. I have referred many people to him knowing I can trust his judgement, character and willingness to help those I care about get a new stride on their ailments. Andy is the go to person for treating the root of the issue! THANK YOU!
