Sports Massage / Sports Injury Massage
This is a deeper form of massage bringing about the release of chronic muscle tension and can induce dramatic improvements in pain levels, function and sporting ability. Sports Massage is beneficial as a preventative therapy and regular maintenance treatment is recommended to prevent injuries/tension recurring.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue massage is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia. This type of massage focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles. Deep tissue massage is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity, such as athletes, and patients who have sustained physical injury.
A more relaxing massage, therapeutic massage gently eases tension from muscles in your back and other parts of your body leaving you feeling as light as feather. Massage lowers levels of stress hormones in the body and helps us cope with busy lives. It also aids circulation and can be helpful for pain relief.
