Brandon Meline is a Sacramento native that has always had a fascination with the human body. Its inner workings from nutrition, structure and function, to kinetic movements itself has always intrigued him. He has been an active participant in sports and martial arts from a child well into young adulthood.
Having spent many years participating in contact sports like muay thai, boxing, dabbling in jiu-jitsu and wrestling, and minor amateur mixed martial arts competitions, he has experienced his fair share of injuries. Acute to chronic pains from minor, major, and even debilitating injuries, along with daily workout stiffness have made him sympathetic and understanding towards others and theirs.
Eventually, being sidelined by sports related injuries, he was no longer able to continue to participate in the sports and activities he loved. A solid night sleep and simple activities that he once took for granted soon became a thing of the past.
Tired of being prescribed pain killers and muscle relaxers to mask his pain symptoms, he sought help in the form of deep tissue sports massage. Here he found the best results for actually taking care of his ailments, not just masking symptoms with meds.
In 2010 he graduated from Bryan College School of Massage (Gold River), 500+ hour program as a massage therapist. Continuing to study the dynamics of muscular structure and function, he earned his Active Release Techniques Certification in 2015.
In 2013 he was eventually able to link up with Elite Spinal and Sports Care. He was able stay active in the athletic community by providing bodywork and maintenance to others to help them with their function and mobility. He found a new passion in helping others continue to do and stay active in the things that they love.
