Stef’s massages really loosen up my muscles and I feel great afterwards.  Her treatments have helped me and it’s great how Stef really cares about the patient, always looking to help.

(2013) Hi Stef, Some feedback for you.
I had an awesome race, and what a massive surprise – No back problems for the first time in 5 years! ..so the wonderful stretching and massage have helped.  Thank You!
I also placed 3rd in my age group and 13th overall. I exceeded that I set out to do.
Thanks again,    Dee Lack

Have you ever been for a run, ride or swim where you were completely in the ‘zone’?

It was smooth, it was rhythmical, it was effortless wasn’t it?   It was so much fun because it seemed natural.  It felt like your body was doing what is was born to do, because there was so much ease.

Here’s a question:   Would you like to have that much freedom and ease every time you exercised?

When you ask your body to move, it delivers without question.  It gives and it gives quite happily, that is, until things get a bit out of balance.

Our specialised sports massage allows you to get back in balance with your body, and  during the session (where needed) we can share with you many tips and knowledge you may not already know, about how you and your body can work in further harmony together!

 

Muscle Maintenance

older-sportsmanDeep tissue massage is not reserved just for athletes. If you are active, whether it be at work or out and about, deep tissue massage can be a fast way to bring you out of pain and back to a happy, mobile body.

We can also help if you have a physical job.  Our truck driver clients, builders, tradesmen and many other people in physical professions find what we do, a great investment of their money and time.

Injury Prevention

When most people think about sports massage, it’s usually to do with preparing for a big event like a triathlon, sporting game or race.  You may be among the many walkers, runners, cyclists and swimmers who are out and around Mount Maunganui every weekend.

“Prevention is better than a cure” a wise man once said.  And it is true.

Massage therapy in experienced hands is one of the fastest, most effective ways to prevent injury when active.

Sports Training

sports-jumpingFor the more serious sportspeople, massage is a necessity if you want to be at the top of your game.  Often sports training is intense and there is just not the time for your body to recover naturally.

Our approach of sports massage and acupressure, with using natural anti-inflammation waxes increases your physical recovery rate dramatically, so you stay at your best easily.

Preparation for an Event

When you have a sporting event on  the horizon, you go into a whole new zone.  Your training regime may change, your eating habits may adapt, and your body will be under increasing stress.

The great thing about what we do is that we can customise your massage treatment to exactly what you need;

runner-massageIf you have increased your training intensity, we target opening and releasing large tensions  areas to give you the greatest mobility possible.

If you have adapted your training regime to include other disciplines and your body is struggling to cope, we can use the benefits of acupressure to open up many levels to make the new muscles work more efficiently

If you have trailed off your training in preparation for the event, we flush your body thoroughly to take away any potential toxins which may hold you back or cause you pain during the even.

If you have finished the event, we combine a complete body flush with gentle acupressure to cleanse the body of toxins and stimulate the natural processes of recovery.

After your massage you will feel:

* Feel much lighter in your body
* More mentally sharp so you can know keep your eye firmly on the goal
* Much greater body freedom so you can enjoy yourself every time you exercise!
* Have more endurance than you ever thought possible
* Feel stronger for longer periods
* Strive further than you ever have before to higher heights
* Move more smoothly with less effort
* Be Faster, access more of your potential
* Enjoy exercise like never before
