Whether it is for pain relief, relaxation or injury recovery and prevention, we have the massage for you! We have a dedicated team of sports and deep tissue massage therapists who will tailor their approach to suit your needs.
Sports massage, deep tissue massage or remedial massage as the name suggests – a remedy for tight and shortened muscles that is deeper than more of the superficial massages available. Using a thorough knowledge of anatomy and physiology, the massage therapist is able to focus on specific musculoskeletal conditions which may cause pain and discomfort. The aim of deep tissue massage is to initiate a change in the muscle fibres, fascia and connective tissue so that function is restored and symptoms alleviated.
The massage therapist employs a dedicated set of techniques and strokes to achieve relief and helps to improve joint function by releasing the restriction of tight muscles and fascia and also helps to improve blood and lymphatic flow to tissues.
Deep tissue massage is particularly helpful with;
- Sports persons who train their muscles regularly – whether suffering with aches and pains or as a preventative measure.
- Sedentary people whose muscles become shortened due to underuse.
- Stress relief
- Maintenance of a healthy musculoskeletal system
Deep tissue massage can be carried out as an adjunct to osteopathy or as a stand-alone treatment.
