Massage Benefits for Golfers

TPI Certified Golf Massage Therapist

A common misconception about golf is that it doesn’t require much energy or strength. Every avid golfer knows this is entirely untrue. Strong golf performance draws on almost all the muscles in the body. At Tri-Covery, we help golfers recover from injuries, work to prevent injuries and also help them improve their performance by increasing flexibility.

Muscles and the Golf Swing

Every part of the body is affected when you swing that club. Knowing which muscles are most critical to a golf swing requires special training. Steve and Lynn are the Tri-Covery golf swing experts. They both have Titleist Performance Institute Certifications. They understand how your shoulders support and provide power during the swing, moving from the core and into the club head. They can also teach you how torque is delivered from your core body muscles during your backswing.

Your lower back muscles are critical to maintaining the correct posture while making the upswing, and the upper back muscles keep the spine at a right angle during the downswing. Glutes, quadriceps, and hamstrings also play a part to provide flexion, balance and even more power for this movement. This understanding of exactly how your golf game affects each muscle group is what gives the Tri-Covery Performance-Recovery Therapists an edge, when golfers request their services.

Massage Therapy for Golfers

We cater to the individual. Your Performance-Recovery Session will be custom-tailored to your needs as a golfer. The information you provide and how your body speaks to us will determine the program we design for you. Therapies offered at Tri-Covery can provide benefits that can help improve your game and prevent injuries and muscle fatigue in several ways such as:

  • Reducing scar tissue left behind by older injuries
  • Improving flexibility which improves performance
  • Helping prevent tightening of your muscles which can cause injury
  • Increasing oxygen intake for your muscles due to improved blood flow
  • Improving the mechanics of your lymphatic system, which prevents lactic acid buildup

Science-based Fascial Stretch Therapy for Golfers

Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) is sought by professional athletes around the world, including golfers. It is one of the best-known therapies for healing injuries and chronic pain. Although golf is not high-impact, injuries are a common occurrence. Tri-Covery offers pain relief and injury recovery which targets the root of the problem.

Golfers can also benefit from Tri-Covery LifeStretch Classes. These classes can help improve range of motion for golfers, which is critical for follow-through on your swing.

Whether it’s recovery from injuries, improving performance or simply to maintain a healthy body for the sport, golfers can benefit from every visit to Tri-Covery.

    Jerry M.
  • “I want to thank Jeff for being a positive and understanding force in my recovery from Back surgery. He also has helped me gain a love of exercise and messages. The kindness and patience I have received from Jeff has helped me understand how important it is to exercise and to keep fit. It is a work in progress and I am happy to be working with Jeff.”

    Kris S.
  • “You will never meet a more honest, caring, dedicated individual than Jeff Kong!”

    Penny S.
  • “I have been seeing Jeff now for several years, and I can say without any hesitation, that he is the finest massage therapist in the land. Not only is he skilled and knowledgeable, but he is also one of the nicest people you will ever come across. Jeff takes the time to access your needs and concerns, and then skillfully goes to work on your problem areas. I would recommend Jeff to anyone who desires massage therapy delivered in a relaxing, friendly and professional environment.”

    David S.
  • “Jeff’s expert knowledge of fitness, strengthening, and conditioning exercises really helped us get started on a simple in home program to help us stay fit and keep our weight in control. After only a couple of visits he was able to teach us dozens of routines that we could work on in our home without having to invest in any expensive equipment. Jeff is such a personable professional, he makes doing your exercises fun. Thanks to Jeff we now have more energy and feel our bodies are better toned! Also, his messages will do wonders for any tense muscles or stiffness you may be experiencing. If you want expert, personalized fitness training we highly recommend Tri-Covery Massage & Fitness.”

    Tom and Sandee D.
  • “I went to Jeff with a nagging shoulder pain. Jeff quickly identified what it was and how to help it to heal. Most importantly, he showed me stretches and exercises to help keep from injuring it again.”

    Jason L.
  • “As both an athlete and a personal trainer, I understand the benefits of sports massage first-hand. When my body needs a rejuvenating massage, I call Jeff. If a friend, family member or training client can benefit from sports massage, the only name I give them is Jeff Kong. Very few people have the combined skill set of athlete, trainer and massage therapist with a functional knowledge of the body like Jeff. I never hesitate to recommend him, and you shouldn’t hesitate to call him.”

    Tad M.
  • “I have been training with and getting massages from Jeff Kong for over 5 years. I have a chronic back condition that can be very difficult to deal with at times. He REALLY listens to what is going on and what areas need attention on any particular day. He uses any of the great variety of methods and techniques that he feels will help me that particular day. When I schedule a massage before a visit to my chiropractor, it greatly helps the ease of adjustment and relaxes my muscles so I have a better chance of STAYING aligned after my adjustment. He’s one of the BEST and I would and DO highly recommend him!”

    Ann R.
  • “I consistently am thanked for referring clients to Jeff and often hear him described as, “caring, intuitive, engaged professional, and the best”. For these reasons, Jeff continues to earn my massage therapy referrals. Thank you, Jeff”

    Benjamin W., MSPT
  • “Thank you, Jeff, for getting me through two marathons in two months!”

    Robin L.
