Sports/Dance Massage

A combination of massage techniques and stretches to assist athletes and dancers. Regular sports massage is a valuable aid to training and preparation for all sports people and dancers.

Sports Massage speeds up recovery from injury and extensive training by:

  • Optimising tissue repair
  • Reducing muscle soreness, tightness and fatigue
  • Improving local blood flow
  • Aiding in the removal of toxins and waste products
  • Increasing body awareness
  • Helps relax the body, mind and spirit.

This means you will enhance your performance and spend less time in pain and struggling, and more time fit, healthy and enjoying your sport or dance.

SPORTS MASSAGE FACTS
Brunswick Heads Sport Massage
Some Testimonals
“‘I have been heavily involved in sport for over 10 years. Initially I suffered many injuries so I decided to try regular massage especially when training is most intense. Besides allowing me to train more frequently as recovery is better, I have not had an injury in over 5 years. During this time I have introduced my son Paul to regular massage as he too plays sport at a high level. Kevin has prevented possible injuries by identifying problem areas whilst massaging Paul.”
Del Thistleton, Australian Representative World Triathlon Championships

“I have known Kevin Fitzgerald for the last 18 months and in that time I have found him to be a warm and compassionate human being who demonstrates a strong empathy with his clients. He has an in-depth knowledge of dance and has developed a high level of expertise in treating dance injuries. From my own personal experience I thoroughly recommend him as a masseur and wish him well in the future.”

Terri-Lee Milne, Principal Dancer - Queensland Ballet

“Kevin is a conscientious student of his discipline, always showing a thoroughness and objective slant to his assessments/treatments. He has always been polite, courteous and enthusiastic in his dealings with patients and embracing the ‘active and healthy’ philosophy in all he does. We have chosen him to deliver in-service to our staff and found his knowledge to be top class. He is simply, a very good clinician which is reflected in his thriving personal business.”

Michael Dalgleish, Physiotherapist to the Australian Women’s Hockey Team & Brisbane Broncos Rugby Team

“Being an endurance swimmer, I clock up a lot of mileage in the pool every week which puts a lot of pressure and strain on my body. Since seeing Kevin on a regular basis (for remedial and sports massage) to assist me in recovery and ensure my muscles are kept at an optimum level to train hard and perform, I believe my consistency in the water has improved dramatically.

I have been seeing Kevin for the last two and a half years which correlates to the period of time where I started making big breakthroughs and finding impressive form in my sport. I have worked with many masseurs on Australian Teams who are considered the best in elite sporting circles and in my opinion Kevin has better technique and is more attuned to finding exactly what your body needs than most.

He is very experienced, professional and takes great pride in offering his skillful service while providing a very warm, caring and relaxed environment. Consultation is not limited by time either, but rather when he is satisfied that he has achieved what your body needs which greatly exceeds what any patient would expect.”

 

Brendan Capell (2004 25Km Open Water Swimming World Champion and Telstra Dolphin Australian team Member)

Mr Fitzgerald has provided his services as a sports trainer and first aid attendant for our 3,000 members and proved his efficiency and expertise.

Mr Fitzgerald traveled with our representative teams to the 1992 nationals as Manager/Sports Trainer, and his services were invaluable to the Association and our representative players.

His interaction with players and officials has been marked by his pleasant disposition and it ensured his popularity in all circles.”
