WHAT IS PERFORMANCE MASSAGE?
It is widely recognised that when our bodies are functioning at their optimum we are better able to manage physical and mental tasks. Regardless of what level of fitness you are at, each stage requires attention, in many forms, for us to perform at our best. People returning to fitness after a period of down time can be more prone to injury, and top athletes require help managing their condition in order to recover, train and perform better. Even a stressed mind can affect tension in the body, leading to a chicken-or-egg cycle of dysfunction.
Performance Massage is an area of specialisation that draws on techniques from sports, rehabilitation, functional and relaxation massage, in order to best address physical issues relating to overall performance. Collectively and over time, this approach to massage works towards a healthier, better functioning, better performing muscular, lymphatic and nervous system.
Kiri Atatoa has been studying, teaching and performing massage since 1998. From elite athletes to everyday people wishing to stay active or achieve a certain goal, Kiri has been meeting the needs of the many throughout her career from her Central Auckland base. Kiri’s highly proficient skillset has seen her sought out by both NZ and international elite athletes, across many different sporting codes. Some of the athletes, teams and tournaments Kiri has worked with are listed below:
Although Kiri has worked extensively with elite athletes, some of the work she is most proud of, and continues to enjoy, is in working with ‘everyday people’ who want to accomplish a certain goal (marathon, tramping or competition), or just keep active.
“Whether your goal is stress management, rehabilitation, speeding up recovery times or lowering your risk of injury, I work to help bring your body into its optimal physical state.”
