HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - Jan 11, 2012) - Massage Heights, a leading provider of sports massage therapy, has created a special award to recognize the achievements of athletically-inclined men and women in Houston.
This program invites Houstonians to submit the 2011 sports-related accomplishments of local amateurs. Following a nomination period a panel of experts will review the entries and select up to ten individuals for awards. In February, the winners will be recognized at a luncheon with the Houston Massage Heights Retreat owners.
"Regular therapeutic massage is beneficial to people of all walks of life," notes J. D. Busch, owner of the River Oaks and Champions Village Retreats in Houston. "The sports massage we offer is specifically targeted to relieve the effects of physical exertion on the bodies of runners, golfers, tennis players, swimmers and virtually any other practitioner of physical activity."
Houston-based competitors who are legal residents of the U.S., who were at least 21 years of age by January 1, 2011 and not employed in a full-time or part-time capacity as a competitor in professional sports, are eligible to apply.
