Hi. I'm Tommy Vance and I'm the owner and head Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT) here at Vance Wellness.
I studied at the Swedish Institute and immediately immersed myself in learning how to help other athletes get the most out of their bodies and to avoid injuries for a longer and more satisfying career.
I've spent twelve years as a dancer in musical theatre in various touring companies and regional theatres where I came to appreciate the importance of massage to keep my body going. As I became more involved with my physical health and well-being, I became excited by all the ways I could improve my performance, not just in my dancing, but in running, cycling, swimming, and other sports.
I've worked for several years in first aid/medical tents for the NYC Marathon, Triathalon and Iron Man competitions. I went on to provide massage therapy, first aid and other services to many returning Olympians from the 2012 Olympics. I've worked with multiple Mr. Universe competitors.
I've built a thriving practice in New York City, working with runners, cyclers, athletes, Broadway actors, and celebrities.
