LONG BEACH, Calif., June 26, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Human Touch®, the U.S. market leader of innovative massage chairs, Perfect Chair® recliners, and other wellness solutions, is pleased to announce that it has formed a partnership with three-time U.S. Olympic Gold Medalist beach volleyball player, Misty May-Treanor.

Misty May-Treanor is considered to be the one of the greatest beach volleyball players in the history of the sport, with Olympic Gold Medals in the 2004 Athens games, 2008 Beijing games, and the 2012 London games, and a total of 109 career tournament victories.

Above and beyond Misty’s achievements in her sport, she takes great personal pride in being an outstanding role model. She spreads goodwill through her work with Special Olympics, Make-A-Wish Foundation, and her own educational/clinic curriculum, as well as many other causes and initiatives important to her.

“I’m excited to bring the knowledge I’ve gained throughout my career to the Human Touch Wellness Council,” said Misty May-Treanor. “I have always been passionate about physical fitness, and my extensive training – in addition to my formal education in Kinesiology, Coaching, and Athletic Administration – have given me a lot of information on improving physical health. The Wellness Council serves as a great platform for me to be able to share that information with people who are seeking to feel and perform their best.”

Misty May-Treanor has long demonstrated the importance of recovery for athletic performance. After a serious injury from her appearance on TV’s Dancing with the Stars in late 2008, many feared that her professional career was over. However, she pushed herself through to recovery, and her performance in the 2012 Olympics in London captured the hearts of the fans from all around the world. It is this same resolve, work ethic, and commitment that Misty brings to the Human Touch Wellness Council, where she will provide insight into the importance of recovery and self-care using massage and relaxation techniques.

“We’re thrilled to have Misty May-Treanor join our Wellness Council,” said Peter Theran, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Human Touch. “Our wellness solutions provide a means of recovery for active people, including professional and amateur athletes, and Misty’s training and education will assist us in providing the best solutions for them. We’re excited to have her to join our team, and eager to share her wisdom with anyone who is looking to use massage and wellness to improve their game both on and off the court.”
