BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Say hello to the woman who makes sure all Buffalo Bills players, from linemen to kickers, keep their muscles are in check.

Laura Zimberg was one of the first licensed massage therapists working at One Bills Drive, she's been in the industry for 14 years, but began working with players 10 years ago.

Zimberg officially became one of four Bills masseuses five years ago.

"Whenever I go to networking places and I tell them I'm one of the massage therapists for the Buffalo Bills I say I only take credit for the wins. I don't take credit for the losses," Zimberg said.

Zimberg's work helps players stay mobile, sleep better and most importantly, prevent injuries.

"With players, who are being hit by cars every play of the game, they are achey. They are sore. A massage can help to release some of that soreness. It can bring in some of that good blood to start the healing and to relax them," Zimberg said, "It's one of their treatments that they use to try and stay on top of their game."

She recently has opened her own studio, Green Pastures Still Waters, on Hertel Ave.
