Dan Packman, LMT Bend is an experienced athlete and former software quality engineer. Dan strives to find the cause of soreness beyond treating the symptoms. He applies an integrated bodywork approach to assess and resolve muscle and soft tissue issues at their source. He understands that an over-used or injured muscle can cause soreness elsewhere in the kinetic chain, affect posture and create compensation patterns.
Upon graduating from Sage School of Massage in 2015, Dan immediately began working as soigner for a professional cycling team, massaging 4-6 riders each day at several major races. Dan has worked with people from all walks of life — from weekend warriors and those recovering from injury or simply seeking relief and better movement, to Olympic athletes. He regularly attends continuing education courses and is working towards becoming certified in Advanced Myofascial Techniques.
Dan has been there. He relates to the need for relaxation, recovery and rejuvenation. He’s clocked a few 100+ hour work weeks and is a Masters National U.S. Cross-Country Ski Champion and World Masters Cross-Country Ski medalist, also two-time Oregon State Cycling Champion. He knows the advantage that therapeutic massage provides to every body.
