Enrolling in Medicare? Don't Make These Mistakes!

Finding the right Medicare plan matters. With hundreds of policies to choose from, and so much information to understand, many people guess when choosing a policy and end up paying too much for a plan that doesn't cover what they need.

Massage Keeps Dartmouth College Athletes In the Game

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.
