Over the last few years, golfers at all skill levels have started to appreciate the tremendous benefits that massage therapy can have on improving their golf game. Golfers are turning to massage therapy for everything from pain relief, increasing range of motion and flexibility to injury prevention. Although massage therapy has been around for thousands of years it is only now starting to get recognition it deserves. Whether you are a weekend warrior or a touring professional, including massage therapy as a regular part of your training program can help you to avoid injury, enhance golf performance and play more pain free golf.
