Robin Roberts Shares the Value of Massage for Athletes

Good Morning America news anchor Robin Roberts, will be the keynote speaker at this years' American Massage Therapy Association Conference.

Robin Roberts, a former college athlete and reporter for ESPN, has shared her own personal journey as a breast cancer survivor with millions of viewers. More recently, she's shared her struggle with a bone marrow disease that required her to undergo a bone marrow transplant.

Through it all, massage therapy has helped her in her healing and wellness goals.

Roberts is featured in an interview with Massage Therapy Journal. She says, "My long-time partner, Amber, graduated from the Swedish Institute's massage therapy program, earned her associate's degree, and is now a licensed massage therapist. One could safely assume that massage therapy plays a pretty important role in our lives! Together, we are committed to a lifestyle of wellness, healing and positivity."

Her video below stresses the healing value of massage therapy for both athletes and cancer patients.
