Enhance your fitness and improve your flexibility and strength whilst reducing the risk of injury with Sports Massage.
Sports Massage is a more clinical form of massage focused on areas of injury or muscular tension. Your treatment will include a mixture of therapeutic, deep tissue and remedial massage strokes along with some additional techniques to release damage.
Your practitioner will stretch your muscle tissues to help realign and return muscles to their optimal length, improve flexibility and range of joint movement.
This type of massage is recommended if you are recovering from an injury or are aware of longer term postural or muscle imbalances that you would like to address. Sports Massage is also an essential part of a sport training schedule and can be used immediately pre or post performance to either prepare muscles for working or to help the recovery process.
A firmer form of massage working into the deeper layers of muscle tissue, Deep Tissue Massage incorporates some of the moves of Swedish Massage with additional techniques to ‘knead’ deeper into areas of tension or muscular damage.
The aim is to break down muscle ‘knots’ (fibre adhesions), release tension sites and boost blood and nutrient supply to both deep and superficial layers of muscle tissue. This type of massage is recommended if you’re aware of tightness or tension in your body.
This massage can be tailored for any stage of pregnancy (after the initial six week period in which massage is not recommended).
During pregnancy, the body changes shape/weight and this can cause various muscular and joint imbalances in the body. Regular pregnancy massage can increase comfort, range of motion, blood and lymph circulation while decreasing pain and aches.
Our Therapist adjust their techniques accordingly (more pillows, different pressure, length of session…) to make sure that you are as comfortable as possible during your treatment. If you have any questions regarding massage during your pregnancy, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
