Sports Massage

Sports Massage

Sports massage caters specifically to individuals engaged in physical activities, extending its benefits beyond professional athletes to include active individuals who exercise regularly. Unlike relaxation-focused massages, its primary aim is injury prevention, treatment, and the enhancement of athletic performance.

A combinations of techqinques are used as required. Often sports massages start with tecnhiques to flush the muscles before getting deeper into any “trouble”areas.

Remedial Massage

Remedial Massage

A Remedial Massage Therapist is excellent at getting to the cause of your tightness and expertly choosing massage techniques to restore movement and flexibility to any tight muscles. They treat the body holistically as often work on many areas, as often tightness and spasm can be widespread and not just located to one area.

Remedial massage uses several specialised techniques to locate and repair damage to muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissue/fascia. Massage therapy supports and speeds up the body’s own repair mechanisms. A lubricating medium, usually oil, is applied directly on the skin. This ensures good, continuous contact with the body so that the soft tissues associated with the disorder are deeply and consistently penetrated.

Relaxation Massage

Relaxation Massage

The main purpose of a relaxation massage, also known as Swedish massage, is to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles. Some other benefits include a shortened recovery time from muscular strain, increased circulation without increased heart load, gentle stretching of ligaments and tendons, skin stimulation and soothing of the nervous system.

Relaxation massage reduces stress, both emotional and physical, and is suggested as part of a regular program for stress management.

This massage technique works on a system of long strokes, gentle kneading, vibration and shaking motions. Massage strokes are mostly applied in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart.

Relaxation massage feels calming and should not be at all painful.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue

Deep tissue massage targets the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. The massage therapist uses slower, more forceful strokes or friction techniques. These techniques can be applied along or across the grain of the muscle. Deep tissue massage is used in the treatment of chronically tight or painful muscles, repetitive strain injuries, long-term postural problems, restricted joints or sports injuries (in the non-acute phase).
