Anna Terry’s journey of becoming a sports massage therapist was intertwined with her athletic career. She became involved in sports at a very young age, participating in field hockey, softball, canoeing and gymnastics, ultimately dedicating her energy to kayaking.After graduating from Southwest School of Massage in Durango, Colorado, in 2002, the New Hampshire native attended the 2002 Slalom World Championships as both an alternate on the Team USA Canoe/Kayak and the team’s massage therapist. She made the team and competed the following year, after which she retired from kayaking and focused on her sports massage career full time.She knew, having been an athlete who received guidance from trainers, that she wanted to serve a clientele of athletes, make them feel better and get them back in the game. Now, Terry, 34, splits her time between her practice—bodyKinesis LLC—and her position as a sports massage therapist and yoga instructor at Dartmouth Peak Performance (DP2), which provides health services to Dartmouth College’s athletes. Education, Terry said, is her greatest resource. Having at least a basic knowledge of the specific sport each individual client is involved in is vital to providing the best possible services for prevention, recovery or maintenance.
However, she said, “You don’t have to be an athlete to work with athletes—you just have to understand what [their] sport does to the body.”
