The primary purpose of Resilience Massage and Training South Melbourne is simple: To help you achieve physical and personal resilience. ResilienceMT offers a unique combination of training and treatment services including clinical myotherapy, remedial massage, functional strength training, and martial arts. Our mission is to help you realise your potential and to challenge your preconceptions about physical limitation.
Every individual is unique, with different physical goals, requirements, and attributes. Therefore, specific individual needs and goals are paramount when designing treatment and training programs. Click on the following tags to find out more about our specific services: Remedial Massage Therapy, Strength and Conditioning, Tai Chi Chuan, Wing Chun Kung-Fu, and Boxing and Muay Thai. ResilienceMT offers many pathways to achieving optimised individual health and physical performance. Our treatment and training programs are diverse as they are specialised.
For example, a person training for weight loss may find the most utility in the high-intensity workouts offered by Boxing and Muay Thai. An older adult seeking to manage chronic back pain would benefit from a combination of clinical myotherapy combined with the gentle exercise offered by Tai Chi Chuan. A young woman interested in self-defence would be ideally suited to the training in situational awareness and practical techniques offered by Wing Chun Kung-Fu. Furthermore, an elite athlete seeking to make a return to competition from sports injury would require a complete biomechanical assessment and an individually tailored clinical myotherapy and functional strength training injury rehabilitation program.
In addition to his qualifications in clinical myotherapy and functional strength training, Chris brings a wealth of direct practical experience to his service. Chris has trained and competed at an elite level in several sports, including full contact Muay Thai kickboxing. Having experienced numerous sports injuries throughout his career, some requiring lengthy periods of injury rehabilitation, Chris’ functional strength training and clinical myotherapy services are informed by a wealth of practical experience and knowledge of the body that goes beyond mere ‘textbook’ understanding.
Despite being an ageing athlete, Chris is still just as passionate and dedicated to his functional strength training and martial arts study as he was at age twenty. He is constantly seeking to transcend the limitations of an ageing body by researching and studying more efficient and productive methods of optimising health and functional fitness. Every aspect of the Resilience Massage and Training service, whether it be clinical myotherapy, functional strength training, or martial arts technique instruction, has been personally tested and vetted. As a consequence, Chris stands by the effectiveness of his approach and methodology, which is continuously being tested, reevaluated, and evolving.
Regardless of your physical goals – whether you are seeking relief from musculoskeletal pain, injury rehabilitation, improved athletic performance, martial arts instruction, or just want to get fit and achieve better health while having fun – at Resilience Massage and Training we have a customised program to suit your specific health and fitness needs.
