Clinton Muhammad, founder of Finish Line Sports Massage, is a native of San Francisco and currently resides in Pleasanton, California. Clinton has specialized in fitness and wellness throughout his 40-year career.
Early on, Clinton developed a passion for bodybuilding and powerlifting, winning numerous titles and records over a 30-year span while managing his own personal training practice. His clients, mostly from the “baby boomer” demographic, were looking for wellness and longevity solutions rather than traditional, physical training services, so Clinton re-invented his business to focus exclusively on mobility, flexibility, corrective posture, and pain-relief services. Also, in response to his clients’ desire for convenience, Clinton extended his experience and reach through an in-home / in-office delivery of wellness solutions.
Optimizing the Serious Golfer by Clinton Muhammad
There are close to 29 million golfers in the United States; that’s a lot of sore muscles. Anyone can benefit from regular massage, but golfers are prime candidates for reaping the rewards of a personalized acupressure massage. “It doesn’t matter if a person is 15 or 65, a pro golfer, or a person who just plays for fun, the mechanics of the game can wreak havoc on any golfer’s body.” The harsh twisting and turning motions during a golf swing can cause lower back pain, joint stiffness, and overall muscle soreness. A golfer who incorporates regular sports massage therapy can help keep their body, and game, in tip-top shape.
For those who are injured, massage can aid in healing. If the massage is targeted towards the client’s specific injury, the therapist can improve circulation to that area. Improving circulation provides vital nutrients to damaged tissues and speeds up the healing process. An Elements massage not only helps a golfer stay on the course, it can also shorten a golfer’s rehab process for a quicker return to the links.

Clinton Muhammad specializes in stretch therapy, combining Active Release Technique, Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation, and Muscle Energy Techniques which together provide rehabilitative stretching techniques targeted to combat limited range of motion, stiffness, tightness and pain.
ART: Active Release Technique
ART is a therapeutic stretching technique used to promote muscle and joint movement in the presence of muscle adhesions (knots) and scar tissue build-up. Treatment involves applying hand pressure to affected areas in order to break up tissue adhesions and released restrained nerves and blood vessels.
PNF: Propioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation
PNF offers rehabilitative stretching techniques that improve basic motor skills and range of motion. PNF focuses primarily on muscle groups that enable horizontal or diagonal bodily movement. By shortening the opposing muscle and lengthening the target muscle, a client then uses an isometric contraction on the target muscle to promote a deep stretch.
MET: Muscle Energy Techniques
MET provide rehabilitative stretching techniques targeted to combat limited range of motion caused by muscle rigidity and hyper-/hypo-tonicity. Additionally, METs are designed to rehabilitate clients suffering from inter-neuronal injuries. Using targeted muscle inhibition, stretches are performed on the affected area – resulting in an increased range of motion.
