Ruby Oates,CMT, RT, ART Practitioner

Manual Therapist


Starting back from the days of her childhood Ruby has enjoyed participating in sports either physically or in spirit.  She loves the competition and the taste of sweet victory.  Soccer was always first on her list as she was a top offensive threat all the way through high school.  Nowadays you can find her playing volleyball or cheering on her favorite football team, the Chicago Bears.

 Ruby found a passion for helping people feel better physically as she made her way through Carrington College, graduating from the Massage Therapy program in 2012.  She has worked in this field ever since, perfecting her craft and expanding her knowledge as she sees people through their physical ailments.

 It was fitting that Ruby happened to discover her latest love when she stepped into a hot pilates studio for the first time.  The way it made her feel after the class sparked her next journey to be a hot pilates instructor.  These workouts are just another outlet Ruby uses in her quest to help everyone feel and perform at their best.

 Working at Active Bodywork feels like home for Ruby, as she learns new techniques and takes on more challenging tasks in order to help clients be their best.

“No Pain, No Gain!”, is a mantra that constantly echoes in the back of my mind. I heard and saw it everywhere as a child. Whether it was posted on my favorite No Fear T-shirt or being stated by one of my childhood tough guys like Arnold Schwarzeneggar or Sylvester Stallone. Being a tough guy was what every kid wanted to be.
However, training through injuries, whether it be high school wrestling, running, jiu-jitsu, swimming, or just normal daily activities is never a good idea. I found this out the hard way. Always considering myself a “tough guy”, I constantly tried to stay active while injured. I ignored pain and stayed active until I could no longer perform the most mundane daily activities or sleep without chronic discomfort.

When icing, stretching, heating pads, and self home-care were no longer enough to ease my discomfort I turned to the aid of massage therapy. For the first time in a long time I found relief. After experiencing the life-changing benefits of massage I decided to take it on as a career.

I graduated a two year massage program at Bryan College Gold River in 2012. Recently, in August 2014, I joined the Active-Bodywork team where I plan to continue my education help others maintain their active, healthy, pain-free lifestyles.
