Nate Graven – Utah Running Expert

Nate Graven               Licensed Massage Therapist

Sports Massage Specialist

Nate is a graduate of the Utah College of Massage Therapy (2000), where he also received advanced training and certifications in sports performance and clinical therapies. He has specific training in Structural Integration (Ida Rolf Method), Soft Tissue Release and Neuro-muscular therapy, body awareness and movement re-patterning for bio-mechanical advantage, and Isolated Stretch therapy. He attended Weber State University and currently works with Basics Sports Medicine physical therapy clinic on campus as a consultant and therapist.

He is an educator of sports massage and performance based body work modalities, developing outcome and evidence-based treatments to support athletes of all levels. He is also a researcher and is currently working with exercise physiologists and other health care professionals on the clinical benefits of myo-fascial organization thru manipulation.

Nate has professional experience in medical clinics, sports and university fitness/human performance centers, and works with teams and individual athletes (Olympic, Professional, Elite local), including being a member of the Athens 2004 Sports Massage Team at the summer Olympic games in Athens, Greece.

The local running community is the bulk of Nate’s private clientele and he has helped many athletes “P.R. on race day”, whether it is a local charity 5k or even performing pre-event work at the U.S. Olympic Trials.

He grew up in Ogden where he enjoyed playing sports in every season. He played team sports at Ben Lomond High school and continued on in competitive adult leagues. An injury while playing with a local semi-pro football team brought Nate to the therapy and support side of sports but also created an opportunity in a career he loves. Nate and his wife Lyndsay are new runners and hope to finish the Ogden Half Marathon in 2010 pain free. They live in Roy and chase their children Thea and Mason around for speed work.
