How do you improve the ultimate golf accessory…?

Golfers arelearning they don't need to be Luke Donald to benefit from manual body therapy. Massage sessions designed to target the specific needs of recreational golfersare gaining in popularity. CityMassage London can provide you with a way to maximise yourGolf potential by identifying and releasing restrictions that reduceperformance and cause injuries.

Take the 'Fit For Golf Challenge'

So you can:

  • Hit the ball straighter
  • Hit the ball longer
  • Have more energy on the back 9
  • Feel no discomfort during your golf swing

"Posture is everything in sports, if it's not functional then neither are you.Working to correct it brings huge results!"
James Ridyard, leading PGA golf instructor

The 'Fit For Golf Challenge' is a course of 8 Postural Rebalancing sessions that will massively enhance your life and your love of golf!

Postural Rebalancing uses soft tissue manipulation to create the space necessary for the segments of the body to realign. When the body is in a state of postural balance, for whatever body type you are, it can function in a state of prime health. These sessions are designed to target the specific needs of golfers and have proven results.

Golf’s Top 10 Stress Points 

The areas most prone to injury in golfers are:
  • Lower back
  • Wrist
  • Elbow
  • Shoulder
  • Knee
  • Neck
  • Hip
  • Ribs
  • Ankle
  • Foot

What we look for during swing analysis

  • Limited neck rotation during backswing
  • Limited shoulder motion during all phases of the swing
  • Limited torso rotation or slow rotation
  • Lateral torso flexion during backswing
  • Hip motion during all phases of the swing
  • Lower extremity motion from foot to hip
The process addresses the body as a whole, and is a thorough way to address any restrictions you might have anywhere in the structure.

Each session of the eight series has a specific goal to accomplish.Each session builds upon the last session and prepares the body for the next session.The time in-between allows the body to integrate the new information or changes that were experienced in that session.

Every session is as unique as the person receiving it and the work flows in concert with each person's physiology. At no time does the work become routine or mechanical.

Session 1 Imagine that you are wearing a wetsuit that covers your entire body head to toe.Now imagine that wetsuit is a size too small.The human body has a fascial sheath that envelops our body much like this image of the wetsuit.This layer of tissue lies just under the surface of the skin.

One of the goals of the first session is to encourage this layer to open and expand.In doing so, we begin to create the space necessary for the major segments of the body to begin shifting into a more balanced relationship.Often the breath, or vital capacity, increases bringing more oxygen to the cells of the body, as well as increasing our ability to expel toxins through the lungs.The body lets out a sigh of relief as the strain and compression in the soft tissue begins to release.

Session 2 Gravity affects the human structure the same way it affect all other physical structures on earth.When a builder builds a house and doesn't get the foundation of the house level and balanced.Over time the house will begin to shift and crack.You must address the source, the foundation.In the human structure, the foundation is found in the arches of the feet, the ankles, legs and knees.Creating a balanced foundation is the primary goal of the second hour.

Session 3 We aim to create length along the lateral line of the body.Our intention is to create more space and freedom between the top of the pelvis and the bottom of the ribs, between the rib cage and the shoulder girdle and the territory along the inside line of the leg the ankles, calves, knees and thighs. The goal is to balance the pelvic floor by bringing more balance into the legs.

In this session the idea of balancing the major segments of the body around a central vertical axis is put into action, and becomes more visible.The client often begins to feel lighter, more upright, and even taller.

Session 4 is a continuation of Session 3. Work is done in the front of the hips as well as the abdomen, diaphragm and ribs. This session opens the front of the body and provides a new dimension of lift to the core.

For the golfer this is the stage where we notice a real difference.Balance is massively improved which leads to greater accuracy in shots. We also give the body increased rotation at this point which enables significantly more power to the swing.

Session 5 One of the central themes occurring in each of the ten sessions is creating a horizontal, balanced pelvis -- this is a considerable focus of session five.

The sacrum or "the sacred bone" is a triangular shaped bone that joins with the two iliac bones to form the pelvis.The joint where they meet is called the sacroiliac joint.There are many layers of muscle and fascial tissue that cross this joint in order to hold it together.

Often these tissues become very tight and hard which cause restrictions in movement to the sacroiliac joint and the hip joints, as well as causing imbalance in the pelvic girdle.

Session five aims to free the sacrum of these restrictions allowing for greater fluidity of movement in the pelvis and along the entire length of the spine.

Session 6 Focuses on the upper shoulders, head and neck.Many of us carry our heads too far forward of our body which forces the muscles of the neck and back to work overtime just to keep the head on the body.By releasing the tension and stress held in the soft tissue of the neck, shoulders, face and cranium we gently bring the head to rest on top of the body.When we are able to relieve muscles that have been chronically working in order to hold the body upright, we suddenly find ourselves with much more available energy.

Now the body does not have to work to "hold" itself up and it can rest in a state of dynamic balance.With each session we begin to use our energy with much more efficiency.

The last two sessions are about integrating all that we have done.

Session 7
In sessions seven and eight we begin putting the body back together.In the first six sessions we were freeing up any restricted areas, or restricted moving patterns. We were creating length and space in the tissue and encouraging order in how the segments of the body relate to each other.

Session seven may focus more on the upper half of the body, the torso, shoulder girdle, neck and head.We balance the relationship of the arms with the shoulder girdle, the shoulder girdle with the torso, the neck with the cranium etc.We may do more work with movement.

Session 8 is the final integration. This is your opportunity to complete, for now, all we've been able to free. We will smooth the fascial wrappers over the structural changes that you have gained, and make peace with anything else that remains. This session usually involves the whole body, at a somewhat more superficial level.
