Dear Dr. Goalpost:

It is common knowledge that you are the finest sports physician in the area. You are blazing a needed path for more research on athletes, and I would like to offer my sports massage services to complement your work with athletic individuals and teams.

My services can assist your patients' well-being, ease your workload and contribute to your profitability. Helping athletes perform at their best and reducing the incidence of their injuries is extremely gratifying. For the last six years I have provided therapeutic massage during numerous sporting events and have regularly worked with athletes to improve their performance, minimize injuries and quicken the recovery from those injuries.

I have been practicing sports massage for the past 12 years, the last three in Burlington, and was trained at the Sports Massage Therapy Institute in Costa Mesa, California, from which I graduated in 1989.

I would like to give you a complimentary massage (or one of your patients, with your supervision) so you will know what you would be offering to your patients. Please call me at 555-555-1212 to set up an appointment. I will check back with you if I haven't received a call within the next two weeks.

Let's work together to keep active Burlingtonians healthy!


Doug L. Gainer
