This form of massage is ideal for those involved in regular activity. The techniques used are incorporated from other forms of massage, and generally uses faster techniques with sustained deep and strong pressure, to allow deep manipulation of the muscular system, bringing oxygenated blood to the area and flushing out toxins. This helps aid in muscle recovery, tissue repair and rehabilitation. Sports massage can be used to prior to exercise as well in order to increase flexibility, as well as post events. It is not unusual to feel soreness and discomfort after treatment which can last a few days.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is not as forceful a technique as sports massage. It focuses on releasing tightness and tension within the muscle belly and connective tissue. This technique focuses more on the problematic regions of the body opposed to the whole body. The pressure applied is generally strong but can be altered based on the patients feedback. The force has to get deep enough to be able to help break up scar tissue and knots. As a result, it is not unusual to feel soreness and discomfort for a few days after the treatment, which would soon dissipate.
This is used to relax and rejuvenate the body, bringing energy back into the system. It uses light pressure with gentle, calming strokes to help reduce overall tension and stress. As the technique is not as deep, it can help break up more superficial knots, without leaving the post treatment soreness that deep tissue may cause. The gentle movements can also increase the lymph drainage, helping reduce the build up of toxins within the body.
