It is a form of massage which aims to work deep into the muscles using different techniques to aid recovery and relaxation to overworked muscles. The generalisation is that sports massage is painful and not relaxing, however this is not the case!
Sports and deep tissue massage should not leave you bruised or under the impression of "no pain, no gain!" If the techniques are used correctly, the deepest layers of tissue can be targeted without causing huge amounts of pain!
Sports massage can be firm and therapists may find trigger points within the muscle that can be painful and uncomfortable. However our therapists will always make sure that the massage is comfortable and suitable for you! So if you prefer the massage firmer or slightly soft, just let us know.
Don’t worry, you do not need to be an athlete or sporting to receive a massage! Anyone and everyone can benefit from one. If you are suffering from tension and tightness in certain muscles, or just need some TLC, sports massage can help.
Here are just a few benefits and reasons why you should book your massage today!
