Not many people would consider massage therapy a competitive sport, but the championship spirit burns within Probodywork's state-certified professionals. They regularly compete in massage championships and can list first-place wins on their resumes. However, despite this competitive legacy, the therapists' greatest achievements are still won within Probodywork's treatment rooms, where there are usually no referees blowing whistles.
