Sports/Deep Tissue Massage

Sports Massage

Sports Massage

‘Sports Massage’ is a term that covers a range of massage treatments, including stimulating treatments to assist preparation before a sports event and those to assist recovery afterwards; and deeper treatments to support a training programme or recovery from injury.  A treatment is therefore tailored to the needs of the individual client and may be deep and therapeutic or light and fast-paced.

A treatment will be based on the gliding strokes and kneading movements of Swedish Massage, and may be combined with other techniques such as stretching and joint mobilisation, and direct pressure.

Deep Tissue Massage

This massage treatment has its foundations in the gliding strokes and kneading movements of Swedish Massage, combined with other techniques such as stretching and joint mobilisation, and direct pressure.  It works progressively through layers of soft tissue to release tension and relieve soreness in muscles, tendons and ligaments.

Treatments are tailored to each individual client, and can be used to treat the whole body or applied to specific areas.
