I do 2 one hour sessions a week and have not had a problem since" Chris. R, committed Extrafit fan         "To achieve my life-long goal of running the 26.2 miles of the London Marathon I realised I was going to need expert advice and I have the medals to prove it. Six years later, I am still training with Tim on a regular basis." Heather.S, Fareham         "Tim came to see me and took a very thorough health history and within a few days (before I could wonder what I'd done) I was starting my first session.

Sports massage therapy


Stay fit, stay focused

You get fitter by training consistently, and consistent training requires regular bodily maintenance to ensure that your muscles are well balanced, and supple as well as strong.

Alongside our training services, Extrafit offers deep tissue massage plus a range of advanced stretching and mobilisation techniques. We work with people who suffer ongoing neck, back and shoulder problems; and we specialise in endurance sport athletes.

These services are important to anyone who trains regularly. Past injuries, muscle imbalance and the activities of daily living, such as driving or sitting, all place stresses upon the body. These stresses can manifest themselves as muscular tension, poor digestion, impaired metabolic function and a reduction in the rate of blood return to the heart.

Sports massage can have many benefits:

  • Increase the quality and quantity of training by reducing recovery time after exercise and competition
  • Prevention of injury - through regular monitoring of the condition of muscles and other soft tissues
  • Improved muscle flexibility and associated range of movement
  • General reduction of stress and tension; helping you achieve your optimum performance
  • Effective rehabilitation after injury
  • Enhanced immune system

The ultimate goal is to improve your performance and enhance your enjoyment of sport.

Remedial massage can have several benefits:

  • Relief for tired and aching muscles
  • Improved posture and general body awareness
  • Aid rehabilitation after an injury, accident or operation
  • Enhanced immune system
  • Physical relaxation of the soft tissues can also lead to mental relaxation.

Extrafit therapists are qualified and experienced in providing remedial massage, postural assessment, sports massage therapy and injury rehabilitation.

45 or 60 minute Appointments are available.  These can either be at your home or at a local Physiotherapy centre in Widley, near Waterlooville. Please call Extrafit now to discuss further or book an appointment.

 

Tip of the Month

There is a widely publicised link between good nutrition and health/wellness.  “You are what you eat” is a phrase often used and is very true.
