Sports Massage

Sports massage is a form of manual bodywork originally geared toward people who participate in sports activities. It is used to help prevent injuries, to prepare the body for athletic activity and maintain it in optimal condition by helping athletes recover from workouts and injuries.

It involves systematic deep tissue massage and mobilisation, with stretching and joint mobilising techniques. It focuses on muscles relevant to an exercise regime or sport.

Even if you do not participate in sport it can help to ease general muscle tension, with many people preferring the depth of sports massage over other massage techniques.

The perceived benefits of sports massage include:

  • Improved recovery from sports activity.
  • Reduced muscle soreness.
  • Improved feelings of wellbeing and mood.

Swedish (classic) Massage

“Swedish massage” is often simply known as “classic massage” or “relaxation massage”. It involves using five main techniques  — effleurage, petrissage, tapotement, friction and vibration with the aim of improving circulation, soothing muscles and making you feel more relaxed.

Swedish massage differs from sports massage as lighter pressure is used, making it an ideal massage for relaxation.

Swedish massage is thought to be good for:

  • Easing muscular soreness
  • Improving circulation.
  • Reducing emotional and physical stress.
