This sports massage class was written by CE Institute LLC Founder, Selena Belisle. Selena Belisle teaches the majority of Sports Massage Classes at CE Institute LLC. She specifically teaches all sports classes that do not list our other master instructors such as Ben Benjamin or Wendy Langen.
Selena has been practicing massage therapy for 30 years. She started with sports massage when she was competing on Team USA in the Athens Greece Olympic Stadium for her 1st World Championship title. She went on to win 3 WAF World Titles in Arm Wresting and other various minor sport titles. After the height of her professional athletic career, Selena sought formal “full body” massage therapy training in 1995 in a 1,000+ hour program at the Massage Institute of New England in Cambridge, Massachusetts – the same city where other schools such as MIT and Harvard University are located.
Selena’s sports massage background is a mix of real-life work situations and formal training from other massage and structural integration masters. Selena has performed sports massage on the Team USA Arm Wresting Organization from 1989 to 1992. She spent 10 years working on various players from the New England Patriots during the time that they succeeded to legendary status. She led the pre-ride “warm-up” for over 1,000 riders in Boston’s World Trade Center, then performed 3-days of sports massage at the 1st ever Boston to New York AIDS ride in 1995, amongst dozens of other sports “tent” massage events. She has worked on players from every single team in the NFL, as well as athletes from the MLB, NBA and NHL. Selena also worked for (and was sponsored by) Reebok from 1990 to 1992.
Selena has also taken extensive bodywork classes to strengthen her table skills for athletes. This included classes in Neuromuscular Therapy, Structural Integration, Postural Integration, Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy, Rolfing, Pain Management, Chinese Medicine, Stretching, Hyro, Cyro & Thermal Therapies, and of course, Sports Massage.
