MIAMI – The Miami Marlins today announced a multi-year partnership with Therabody, the global innovator of tech wellness, with a focus on combining the innovative efforts of both organizations to enhance player wellness and recovery. The partnership will entitle Therabody as the exclusive Percussive Massage Therapy and Pneumatic Compression Devices Partner of the Miami Marlins.
Marlins players, coaches, and medical experts will gain access to whole-body wellness techniques through Therabody University, the company’s educational division led by its Founder and Chief Wellness Officer, Dr. Jason Wersland, and his network of world-renowned health and fitness experts. In addition, the partnership will integrate Therabody’s percussive massage therapy devices and pneumatic compression devices into each of the respective teams’ training and recovery programs to help improve player health and overall team performance. Therabody will custom build a section in the dugout for players to have access to use Theragun devices during games and practices.
“I'm thrilled to be partnering with the Miami Marlins and being a part of their commitment to player wellness,” said Wersland. “Improving player health is core to Therabody and I’m honored to be providing them with the best technology, techniques, and protocols to help them gain a competitive edge this season.”
Known for its ecosystem of industry-leading products and its commitment to research and development, Therabody was selected by the Marlins to enhance recovery and overall wellness of its players, as well as educate them on the importance of effective recovery - both on and off the field. Therabody is the creator of the first-ever, hand-held percussive massage therapy device, Theragun®, which is used to accelerate recovery, help prevent injury, and improve athletic performance. Since its launch in 2016, the company evolved from Theragun to Therabody, a technologically advanced suite of industry-leading wellness content, products, and services.
