We'll Help Heal Your Body.


As an athlete Todd learned of the good, the bad, and the ugly behind sports. Todd is continuously learning and developing his athletic skills. Chiropractic and Massage Therapy was first introduced to Todd from the suffering of various sports related injuries. Chiropractic as well as Massage Therapy gave Todd the opportunity of continuing his athletic life style. Additionally it introduced Todd to what soon would become his career choice.

Todd graduated from the Utah College of Massage Therapy in 2005, and in 2008 he joined the team of professionals at Elite Spinal and Sports Care. This practice was created by Justin Lau D. C., and Edward Chu D. C. Joining Elite Spinal and Sports Care has given Todd the opportunity to closely learn from both Dr. Lau and Dr. Chu. In the past few years Todd has become certified as a “full body” Active Release Technique (ART) Provider. He has additionally become certified in Rock Tape. This and the combination of Todd’s great customer service knowledge and Business Management experience has opened the doors to a lifelong career. As a athlete Todd was an avid Baseball and Football player. Currently Todd is a Triathlete, half Marathon runner, and a 100 mile Bike Race rider. His long lasting love for sports has been supported by his access to Massage Therapy as well as Chiropractic.

“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.



Fascial Movement Taping- Rock Tape

Natasha’s driven personality for a healthy, active lifestyle is exactly why she joined the Active Bodyworks team. She believes fitness, diet, and rehabilitation are the key to a long life. Natasha grew up learning to toughen up through pain, and “be like the boys” all through her childhood. It only has pushed Natasha more to be successful in the fitness industry. In high school Natasha was captain of her waterpolo team and swam competitively. Currently she has found a love for weightlifting and calisthenics and never looked back. Powering through heavy squats and deadlifts, she found sports massage as her favorite recovery technique. With her strong passion for human anatomy and love of rehabilitative massages, Natasha decided to attend school for what now she has as her dream job- a sports injury therapist.

Natasha is a recent graduate from National Holistic Institute in Advanced Neuromuscular Therapy in 2016. She has big plans for the company and for her future clients in sustaining a long athletic career.

Ruby Oates


 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.
