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.
