In Part 2 of The ABMP Podcast with Benny Vaughn, Kristin and Darren speak with Benny about his role as a life coach, how his success is a product of how he thinks, and why using positive communication with his clients is the key to a successful therapeutic practice.
For four decades, Benny Vaughn has set a standard in the United States for massage therapy in sports. Massage Magazine named him one of the most influential massage therapists in the last 100 years for his contributions in both education and clinical applications of soft-tissue therapy and bodywork.
Benny has participated in Five Olympic Games with the USA track and field team, including 1996 where he served as a Manager for Athlete Medical Services and the Medical Liaison at Olympic Stadium. Other Olympic Games where Benny has been on the USA track and field sports medicine staff as a Licensed Massage Therapist and Certified Athletic Trainer are: 2004 Athens Greece, 2008 Beijing China, 2012 London England, and 2020 Tokyo, Japan.
In October 2014, Benny opened the Benny Vaughn Athletic Therapy Center facility located in the Clearfork development in Fort Worth, Texas USA. This new space enables Benny to provide the same quality and level of hands-on care afforded US Olympians and Olympic hopefuls at the Olympic Training Centers.
Benny Vaughn's educational philosophy is, "Education and learning nourish your soul and expand your potential." He has been a strong proponent of quality massage therapy education for decades and brings more than forty years of clinical, hands-on experience to his teaching. He believes that experience is the key to a good education. Benny Vaughn is an engaging teacher who stimulates curiosity and makes learning exciting.
