Sports Massage

Sports (or injury) massage is one of the most effective ways to maintain and protect the body from aches, pains and injuries. It focuses on the soft tissue and is firmer and more targeted than other types of massage.

Sports massage is great for anyone with a specific injury or under-lying pain and those who wish to prevent injury, including athletes, gym-goers or even those that spend a lot of time at their desks.

The massage will vary from person to person depending on what their injuries or aggravations are. The therapist will focus on a specific area, or areas, of the body once an initial assessment has been carried out.

 

There are two main benefits of sports massage:

  • Restoration - Reduce muscle tension, improve exercise performance and prevent injuries

  • Rehabilitation - Alleviate pain from an injury and return the affected tissue to normal

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is a full body massage aimed at realigning the deeper layers of connective and muscle tissue. It releases chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the tense areas.

Deep tissue massages work by breaking up scar tissue and breaking down muscle adhesions which are the “knots” that we feel in our muscles that can inhibit our circulation and cause pain and inflammation.

Deep tissue massages have benefits for both your physical and mental health, such as:

  • Stress relief

  • Reduces pain and inflammation (including headaches)

  • Lowers blood pressure and heart rate

  • Breaks up scar tissue and makes movement easier

  • Reduces arthritis symptoms

The main benefits of this relaxing massage are:

  • Relief from pain, eg headaches and back pain

  • Improved blood and lymph circulation

  • The release of endorphins, the body's feel-good hormones

Cupping Therapy

People have used cupping for thousands of years to ease back pain, neck pain, headaches and other problems.

 

Cupping therapy involves creating a suction force, using warm glass cups, that decompresses muscles and connective tissue. This promotes blood flow, enhances circulation and helps to increase the body's own healing processes.

Cupping improves the local circulation of blood in the area being treated, reducing swelling, pain, and tension. It also removes toxins by drawing impurities to the surface of the skin.

The benefits of cupping include:

  • Release scar tissue and fascial adhesions

  • Reduce painful trigger points

  • Improve circulation, blood and lymph circulation

  • Relieve pain

  • Promote mobility and range of motion

  • Improves mature scars

  • Decrease toxins
