Meet the Myology Team
Vincent came to massage therapy as a second career. While working for Sprint in 2007, he enrolled in the American and European Massage Clinic in Raleigh, North Carolina and began practicing massage therapy part-time in March 2008 in Creedmoor. After a few competitions and realizing the demand for sports massage for CrossFit athletes, he left his life in the technology world to focus all his efforts on sports massage and developing a successful business.
Today, Vincent is a Licensed Massage Therapist, certified in RockTape’s Functional Movement Techniques I & II, USAW Sport Performance Coach, and founder of Myology Sports Massage. In addition to seeing clients in more locations than he can count and providing services at competitions, he also maintains the company’s website, social media pages, marketing and branding.
When Vincent isn’t seeing clients, he’s spending time with his wife, Kristen and their 2 dogs in Creedmoor. He enjoys an active outdoor life, mud runs and WODing with his friends.
Rob grew up in Eastern Pennsylvania before going to college at Penn State, joining the USCG reserves, and then spending 8 years in Pittsburgh working as a polysomnographer while mountain biking and skiing on the side. While in Pennsylvania he completed his massage therapy certificate in 2011 and did massage as a part time job.
In 2013 Rob moved to North Carolina simply to try some new scenery but quickly loved the area. He also decided to take the chance of making massage his full time career. Rob has always enjoyed being physically active after shedding some childhood weight and found enjoyment in helping others with their fitness, pain, and health goals through massage. He met Vincent at a state massage conference in 2014 which sealed the deal with following the path of sports massage.
In that time Rob has worked primarily with runners, swimmers, cyclists, postsurgery patients, pain management clients, and now the CrossFit community since joining Myology in February 2016. He holds a certificate in medical massage and has studied cupping and IASTM techniques to add to his treatments as needed.
In his free time Rob likes to struggle through CrossFit workouts, find new hiking trails with his dog, and explore the beaches, mountains, and new NC places with his wife, Jess.
LB recently moved from Wilmington, NC where he lived for 12 years. After many years of working in gyms, he decided to go a different route and go into massage therapy. He has been practicing massage since 2011. After working Ironman and marathon events for 6 years, he decided that he wanted to focus his massages on athletes and mobility.
Raised in the boondocks of North Carolina, and a few years spent in Southern California, Allison moved to the beautiful city of Raleigh at the end of 2011. Through the years she held a few different jobs, such as working in a chiropractor’s office and managing a restaurant, all while trying to find something that truly called her name.
In 2014 she started at a new CrossFit gym where she met Vincent and was introduced to the specific style of massage that Myology does. Completely fascinated and intrigued (and constantly asking questions) she decided this was the path she wanted to take telling Vincent, “I’m going to work for you some day.”
She attended the Living Arts Institute in Winston-Salem, NC, graduating with honors in September 2017. Since graduating she has received certifications in IASTM and RockTape
In her free time she enjoys cuddling and singing to her two cats, hiking the nearby areas, dancing through Trader Joe’s, and any spontaneous adventures!
Massage therapy is a second career for Grey. She was a licensed cosmetologist for over 10 years and toyed with the idea of massage therapy for quite some time. The desire to get out of the spa setting held her back for quite a while. That all changed when she met Myology at a CrossFit competition in 2015.
The laid back and upbeat atmosphere of a CrossFit gym combined with a fascination for the human body made for the perfect career change. Grey started the Massage and Bodywork Program at Fayetteville Tech in January 2016, shortly after meeting Vince. By January 2017 she was officially a LMBT and had many hours shadowing with Myology under her belt. Grey is proud to represent Myology in the Fayetteville and surrounding areas with an office at Iron Forged Athletics in downtown and traveling to other CrossFit gyms in the area.
In her free time, Grey enjoys spending time with her husband John and their four dogs. You can usually find them on the family farm, running off to the beach, getting outside and traveling as
much as possible.
Izzy hails from the foothills of the Colorado Rockies. Today, Durham and the Triangle hold a special place in her heart: the place with weather to support year round training. Coincidentally, she was also following her career in psychological research.
In 2017, she realized her life path was rooted in supporting folks feeling their best in their bodies. She left research behind, and went to massage school. She focuses her practice by utilizing tangible markers of assessment and goal setting. Izzy uses IASTM, manual manipulation, gua sha, and trigger point as her main modalities, and focuses on the relationship between the nervous system and muscles. She is also invested in deepening her practice as a trauma informed therapist: to support healing and understanding the depth of physical and emotional traumas.
Outside her therapy practice, she is usually running, lifting, or eating. As of summer 2019, acquired a truck that she is working on converting into a semi-permanent mobile abode by 2020. (The goal is to be self sufficient and mobile to best support the Myology community at large.)
Austin Tepsic comes from Pennsylvania where received a degree in social work from Elizabethtown College. He moved to North Carolina in 2013, where he decided to return to school to pursue a career in massage therapy. He went to Gwenette College (formerly known as The Medical Arts School) in Raleigh where he graduated with a 4.0 GPA. He took advanced courses in trigger point therapy and sports massage where he excelled. He is currently pursuing his certification in neuromuscular therapy.
After working for several spas and as an independent contractor, he began doing CrossFit where he learned about Myology Sports Massage. Austin is an adaptive athlete. His vision impairment, Stargardts Macular Degeneration makes him legally blind, but in massage and in CrossFit this doesn't hinder him. He feels it makes him more successful. He began with Myology in December of 2017 and loves helping everyone get out of pain and back to the grind!
