Gareth Thomas-Endurance Coach


"Endurance sports at the elite level place huge demands on an athlete. As such I am always looking for the best ways to help my athletes recover from training and racing to stay injury free. Scott's bodywork has played a huge part in the success of my athletes and teams. Quite simply, he has the best hands of any massage therapist that I have discovered since coming to the USA nearly 20 years ago. Furthermore, he is genuinely interested in the process of working with athletes to achieve peak performance. He always follows up to check in how my athletes feel following a bodywork session and is constantly upgrading his knowledge and education so that his work remains of the highest caliber. He is an essential part of my coaching arsenal"

"I have worked with Scott professionally for more than 15 years now. He has worked on me, with me (in treating some of my patients), and on my two business partners as well. I am always comfortable referring Scott as a solid, knowledgeable therapist. He is professional, courteous, and punctual. Scott is particularly effective with athletes. He understands the mental and physical aspects of long-term training, which is important in maintaining an athletic client’s health. I can highly recommend his service."

Prior to moving to Northern California, I worked with Scott for more than 10 years. Coach Gareth Thomas originally referred me to him, as I was seeking relief from lower back pain, and hip flexibility. Scott has so much experience with athletes. He is a cyclist himself, which gives him experience in determining which muscles needs work, and how to approach them.  He also knows when to "dig in" and when to let muscles recover with just a flush.  As an active adult, I have worked with many Massage Therapists with various aches and pains, but I return to Scott month-after-month, because he is the best."

“As a former massage therapist, I have always been picky regarding masseurs I choose to actually work on me. A mutual friend suggested I give Scott a try to correct my nagging case of high-hamstring tendonitis (all stemming from a bike crash a few years back). Scott understood immediately what my needs were, and within a few weeks I was thrilled to be injury free, again. Scott is more than a massage therapist with a boatload of education (college professor). He is an experienced, reliable, intuitive, capable, and relatable funny guy. As a former cyclist, he knows the suffering and challenges of endurance athletes. So many LATriClub triathletes and Ultra-distance runners who put their bodies through the ringer also rely on Scott for maintenance and recovery. That said, I know that I am not alone in his admiration club!”

"I’ve been coming to Scott for over 7 years with various soft tissue needs and there is simply no one else I go to. As a physical therapist and runner I can quickly tell whether tissues are being worked appropriately and correctly. I’m happy to say Scott checks off all those boxes. He’s a knowledgable professional and a great massage therapist."
