AND Makes the Evening News
January 26, 2007

ABC 7 Chicago visited Liz Coye-Monte to learn more about how she helps Chicago Bears players stay primed for the big game. Reporter Ravi Baichwal talks with Liz and running back Thomas Jones.

"'It will be soreness, hamstrings or quads but it is nothing specific, like I am really having problems here or problems there,' said Jones. 'A lot of times you just mention one thing to her she already understands exactly what you are talking about. You don't have to get into detail.'

"The massage therapists — and their other high profile clients such as Bears Mark Anderson, John Tate and Desmond Clark — swear that the massages they receive not only make the here and now more bearable, but will play a critical role in prolonging their careers."
