David McVeigh grew up in Ireland where he competed in road races and worked as a sports therapist. While he enjoyed his work, David felt limited in his abilities to rehabilitate his athletes. He’d learned firsthand the positive effects of massage therapy at his job and decided to make the switch, enrolling in a two-year course to learn the ins and outs of massage and bodywork.
Today, the owner of McVeigh Massage and his team in their quaint two-room studio, offer Swedish, deep-tissue, sports, and prenatal massages using heated pads and less-oily massage creams. Inside their serene and posh location, the team treats a variety of clients suffering from various body injuries such as chronic lower-back strain resulting from computer engineer work or inflamed muscles springing from strenuous exercises. They also provide terrycloth headbands and caps to keep hair from doing donuts in the slick creams.
Body therapist Charles Tinley believes that up to 87% of all pain originates in the soft tissue. That's why he's dedicated his life to massaging and manipulating everything that sandwiched between the skin and bones. Aside from his massage modalities, such as trigger-point therapy and deep-tissue, he also extols the virtues of stretching. During fascial-stretch-therapy sessions, he breaks up internal scar tissue and boosts clients' range of motion with a series of controlled and assisted stretches.
Terrio Therapy-Fitness, a physical-therapy and fitness center, constantly looks to its mantra, “there has to be a better way,” when helping patients and the local community deal with problems. That’s why it creates custom therapy and fitness programs, why it developed two pediatric centers that cater to children with disabilities, and why it has expanded from one small outpatient clinic to 12 clinics throughout the area with 35 physical, occupational, and speech therapists.
Though the staff primarily cater to sports injuries, the range of services has evolved to treat both adults and kids with a variety of therapies, such as occupational and speech therapy, teaching kids and adults how to deal with pain or say “my name is Sharon” in Esperanto. The centers’ fitness facilities build muscles through group classes such as Pilates, fencing, and sports-specific skills training, and personal-training sessions provide one-on-one workouts with exercise gurus such as Steve Sobonya, who has trained Olympic gold-medal winners. In order to further aid in weight loss, Terrio Therapy-Fitness’s nutrition experts offer metabolic testing and personal consultations to discuss nutrition goals and why eating bacon for every meal and snack is a bad idea.
As people age, their fitness and health needs change.

Therapists help patients produce proper speech sounds, learn to live with chronic injuries, and help alleviate muscle and joint pain. Nutritionists implement diets for those living with diabetes or cancer and help people achieve their weight-loss goals.
