Having been heavily involved in sport throughout his life, Marty developed an interest in body repair, maintenance and performance improvement. Marty considers fitness and strength training as being vital to everyday functionality and enjoys coaching basic weight training.
Marty has been working with massage therapy for more than 20 years, the past 10 of which have been in a practice with Osteopaths, Chiropractors, Physiotherapists and Acupuncturists in Dunedin. Marty enjoys working with a wide variety of clients, from professional athletes to those with complex physical needs.
Marty uses massage, tissue and joint mobilisation and muscle energy techniques to aid you to improve, restore and maintain basic function and movement.
His 60-minute treatments usually encompass all three but shorter sessions (30-minutes) of tissue and joint mobilisations have also proven effective and popular for ongoing maintenance. Shorter sessions are only available to those who have seen Marty before. These sessions are great if you have a specific area such as calves that require attention and for spinal, neck and joint mobilisation. View details »
