PROS – YOU DESERVE BETTER CLIENTS!

 

Custom

Would you like to increase client retention and satisfaction? Why clients quit

Would you like to increase client compliance in your programs?

Would you like to gain more clients and more referrals? 

You need BETTER FUNCTIONING CLIENTS!

Why? Because they make you LOOK GOOD!

You know that client, the one that no matter how many times you tell them how to move their body – and they just CAN’T do it?

Frustrating, isn’t it?

Do they not understand your instruction? Could you do a better job demonstrating? Are they trying to drive you INSANE?

Nope. None of the above.

They don’t do it because they can’t do it. Their bodies just won’t let them.

Wouldn’t it be great if you had someone who could address your client’s physical limitations, freeing you up to work on technique, power and strategy – the stuff you love to teach, right?

That’s where I come in – I am a Pain & Performance Specialist with specialized training from the International Tennis Performance Association and the Titleist Performance Institute. I have developed a comprehensive system that will revolutionize the way your clients respond to your golf or tennis instruction.

INTRODUCINGTHE GAME ON! POWER &

I’m sure you have questions, such as:
Q. Why not just send them to a massage therapist?
A. Traditional massage techniques simply cannot achieve our level of results.

Q. Why not just send them to a personal trainer?
A. There’s certainly nothing wrong with that, but just exercise (even corrective exercise ) is rarely the
answer.

Q. Why not just send them to a physical therapist?
A. That’s better, but physical therapists don’t spend a lot of time doing manual work. And manual work is the juice, because in addition to being good for you, it feels good. It keeps your clients vested in the entire program because it’s so reinforcing.

Q. Why not send them to an orthopedist?
A. Do you ever want to SEE your clients again? Typically once they head down the orthopedic road, it’s a never ending merry-go-round of activity restrictions, injections, medications and surgeries.

Shhhh….It’s a Secret (Weapon).

imageYou’re probably thinking…it’s a fancy racquet or club, or a training contraption, or some crazy teaching method. 

No, it’s none of those things.

It’s just you, your body to be exact.

Your secret weapon will always be an optimally functioning body.

You can have the best equipment and receive the best training, but if your body doesn’t cooperate you’re dead in the water. Pain, injuries and dysfunction will sabotage all your best efforts.

Do you have an injury?

Do you have a nagging pain?

Does your swing or stroke feel “off”?

Do you just want to play better?

We are proud to announce we are the only clinic in the area utilizing vacuum-assisted Myofascial Decompression Therapy to treat golf and tennis specific pain, injuries and dysfunction. Our customized treatments help heal injuries, reduce pain and improve performance by treating the muscular and myofascial dysfunctions that contribute to poor performance on the court or course.

The New England season is short enough, don’t let aches and pains make it shorter.

Golf Pros: Where Have All the Golfers Gone? Retaining Clients in a Sport on the Decline

bw golfFor the game of golf, the statistics are pretty bleak:

  • 400,000 players left the game in 2013 (National Golf Foundation)
  • 200,000 of those players were under 35 (National Golf Foundation)
  • 2013 marked the 8th straight year that more courses closed than opened (National Golf Foundation)
  • US golfers played 462 million rounds of golf in 2013, the fewest since 1995 (Golf Datatech)
  • 61% of golfers are over 50 years old (National Golf Foundation)

What does this mean for golf pros?

  • You have fewer new clients
  • You have fewer younger clients
  • Your current clients are older and are facing declining physical health

So what can you do? Grab ahold of that 61% of older golfers and keep them in the game for as long as possible. How can you do that? Develop a relationship with a skilled massage therapist and you will have an invaluable resource for your clients. But not all massage therapists are alike, so take the time to find one that has specialized training in treating sports specific issues and prescribing corrective exercises. In fact, there are many massage therapists who have golf specific training and certification. If you express an interest in developing a referral relationship, most therapists will provide you with a complementary sample session, so you can see what kind of service your clients can expect. Do your homework and due diligence and your clients will reap the rewards.

Refer your clients early and often, before the inevitable loss of mobility or injury occurs. With consistent massage therapy and corrective exercises your clients will gain and retain mobility, stability and flexibility. They will function better, be easier to teach and see more results, allowing you to focus on teaching the skills you love to teach without worrying about physical restrictions.

It’s a win-win for you AND your clients.

5 Ways Massage Will Help Your Golf Game

image

 

There are many muscular restrictions that can get in the way of your golf game.  Receiving massages on a regular basis keeps those muscles loose and relaxed, so you can focus on your game – not your pain.

 

 

 

Here are 5 ways massage will help your golf game:

 

1.  Relaxes the hip and glute muscles, allowing the hips to fully rotate and the pelvis to fully pivot over the leg.

2.  Relaxes the shoulder muscles, allowing the shoulders to fully rotate around the spine.

3.  Relaxes the spinal and abdominal muscles, allowing the torso to fully rotate.

4.  Relaxes the glute and thigh muscles, preventing knee pain.

5.  Relaxes the forearm muscles, preventing golfer’s elbow pain.

 

The next time you have a frustrating and disappointing round of golf, try a massage instead of new equipment or a round of lessons.  The solution just may be easier than you think!

The Time is Now!

Time is a created thing. To say “I don’t have time,” is like saying, “I don’t want to.”
~ Lao Tzu

The Time is Now!

Put yourself and your well-being first, for once.

Now that summer is winding down, it’s time to look at what you what to accomplish before the end of the year.

Take the time to improve your golf or tennis game.
Make the time to finally address that nagging pain.
Carve out some time that’s just about YOU.

Sounds good, doesn’t it?

What’s the common denominator here? Time. We all never seem to have enough of it. But the truth is, it’s up to us to make the time for ourselves because it will never magically appear. Jobs, kids, household responsibilities and just plain life will get in the way. Every. Single. Time.

I understand how hard it is, I don’t have a lot of time either. In addition to my “real” job I’m working hard to get Game On Therapeutix up off the ground with a solid client base. My dream is to be able to spend my days doing what I love and helping you all in the process.  None of this leaves a lot of time for me.

But I recently took steps to improve my own health and well-being and I can’t believe I waited so long. Why did I do it? It finally occurred to me if I didn’t do this for myself, nobody was going to do it for me. I needed to do it for myself.

You need to do it for YOURself!

What do YOU need?

To rectify a physical limitation that’s affecting your golf or tennis game
To address that painful lower back, or knee, or hip, etc.
Or just a full body sports massage

It’s up to you to do it!

Put yourself and your well-being first, for once!
