Sports Massage is a form of massage involving the manipulation of soft tissue to
benefit a person engaged in regular physical activity. Soft tissue is connective
tissue that has not hardened into bone and cartilage; it includes skin, muscles,
tendons, ligaments and fascia (a form of connective tissue that lines and ensheathes
the other soft tissues). Sports Massage is designed to assist in correcting problems
and imbalances in soft tissue that are caused from repetitive and strenuous physical
activity and trauma. The application of Sports Massage, prior to and after exercise,
may enhance performance, aid recovery and prevent injury.
Sessions last 40 minutes.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue massage derives from the traditional massage therapy first used by ancient
civilisations. It uses the techniques of Swedish Massage and incorporates Deep Tissue
Massage methods. It also utilises manual therapy practices of Osteopathy and Physiotherapy incorporating passive stretching and physical manipulations.
The aim of Deep Tissue Massage is to identify the root cause of a disorder, treat
its symptoms and encourage the body's natural healing process. Deep Tissue Massage
aims to improve muscle tension and aid ligament and tendon function by allowing these
soft tissues to move freely. It can also help in cases of injury or chronic muscle
tension and can help to break up and eliminate scar tissue and fibre adhesions.
Deep Tissue Massage is extremely beneficial to your health. When muscles are stressed,
they block oxygen and nutrients, leading to inflammation that leads to a build up
of toxins in the muscle tissue. A Deep Tissue Massage helps loosen muscle tissues
thereby releasing and removing toxins from muscles which helps the body to circulate
blood and oxygen properly.
All of the techniques used help to correct the body's structure and ease restricted
movement. Its purpose is to “unstick” the fibres of muscle while releasing deeply
held patterns of tension, relieving stress while relaxing and soothing the muscle.
Deep Tissue Massage is an essential part of body maintenance as keeping the muscles
and soft tissue at their peak will help prevent injuries and help the body maintain
its fitness and performance. As many toxins are released during the massage, it
is important to drink plenty of water after a Deep Tissue session to help eliminate
these toxins from the body.
Sessions last 60 minutes.
