However, I decided to give Bodyneed Ponsonby a try. After several sessions I can honestly say that everything has completely changed. Together we painlessly worked out my specific trouble spots and released my muscles and improved my body more than any other massage therapist I have ever been to in my life. Not only has this allowed me to speed my running up by more than thirty seconds per kilometer, and completely improve my form and muscle engagement particularly when running hills, but at the same time I have been inspired and helped to see my body as an advantage and positive attribute in everything I am striving to accomplish - I now believe I can set and accomplish any physical goal. I am officially a complete convert to sports massage - which in the past I have always dreaded due to the extreme pain I always personally experienced from it .
I would recommend Bodyneed to absolutely anyone looking to improve any aspect of their athletic life."
"I first came across bodyneed at the Total Sport Xterra Trail run series 2012 – my calves were in pretty bad shape and the crew referred me to the bodyneed clinic. My calf problems were bad and not getting better on their own. I was training for my first marathon – The Legend in September and didn’t want to stop. But they were awesome – they understood (they are runners too) and didn’t make me stop for too long and gave me heaps of options to work with. I ran my first full marathon and then my second (Auckland) 2 weeks later. First duathlon a month after that. I didn’t believe in massage before all this – but now I won’t train without it especially in peak weeks.
