Advance Massage grand opening Saturday

Advanced Massage & Bodywork announces its grand opening at the River Hills Marina Club office.

A meet and greet with owner Robert K. Vincent will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27, at 54 Marina Road, suite 101.

Vincent, a licensed massage and bodywork therapist, American College of Sports Medicine exercise instructor and fitness director for River Hills Country Club, has more than 25 years experience. He opened Advanced Massage and Bodywork in 2008, originally operating from Lifestyle Physical Therapy in Lake Wylie, before moving to Club Fitness, 11108 S. Tryon St., Steele Creek. The River Hills office will be his second location.

“I am eager to introduce this model of restorative therapy to those who may view massage only as a form of relaxation you receive at a day spa,” Vincent said. “It’s my goal to teach folks it is an effective method of achieving better health and wellness, and not simply a luxury.”

He has served as team therapist and trainer for Carolina Panthers and players during the Championship at The Palisades tennis tournaments and on the PGA tour.

An introduction to massage therapy, offering restorative massage and core-functional exercise training, will be available on a first-come basis during the open house.

To earn the Fit Friendly status, worksites must offer employees physical activity options in the workplace, increase healthy eating options at the worksite and promote a culture of wellness. Applications are accepted Jan. 31 and July 31 each year, and local winners are recognized in March at the My Heart My Life CEO Breakfast.
