Deep Tissue Massage and Sports Massages are Therapeutic treatments performed with the aim of providing treatment for a specific condition.
Our deep tissue massage therapy focuses on stimulating muscle tissue at a deeper, more fundamental level. This way the process aims to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas, either following or going across the fibres of the muscles, together with their tendons and fascia.
Sports massage specifically focuses on the muscle systems that used in athletic activities, and can be a vital to your athletic/sports activity, regular training, or to help your rehabilitation from an acute or chronic injury. The deep muscular tissue manipulation may be initially uncomfortable, however as your muscles and joints respond to the massage treatment, you will find a significant reduction in stiffness and enhancement in flexibility. The improvements in strength and movement or the welcome relief from a physical injury/issue can enhance your self-esteem, athletically improve your form and generally be very psychologically beneficial.
These massages are all forms of Therapeutic massage – i.e. Massages that are catered and tailored to your specific issues, requirements and goals. They often combine a number of massage styles and techniques, including Swedish, Thai, trigger-point compression and electro-neuromuscular methods to relieve sore muscles and increase physical endurance, power and general flexibility.
