In both Torrington and Bristol, the practice is offering sports massages by appointment only with extended hours. Massage appointments will be available Tuesday and Thursday, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., and on Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“Massage therapy is an effective treatment technique for many patients who are suffering from an orthopedic or sports medicine-related injury or condition,” says Dr. Leigh Brezenoff, sports medicine surgeon at Litchfield Hills Orthopedic Associates. "We are thrilled to offer our patients this innovative treatment to help them recover quickly so they can confidently get back to doing what they love.”

Simonds received her degree in physical therapy assistant studies from Naugatuck Valley Community College in Waterbury, Connecticut. She also studied massage therapy at the Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy in Newington.
