Deep Tissue Sports Massage

If you are experiencing chronic muscle pain as result of playing sports, then a deep tissue massage releases severe muscle tension by focusing on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and connective muscle tissue (Fascia) in the affected area. This deep type of massage releases the body’s natural supply of serotonin and oxytocin which help to control stress and hormone levels, relieving pain and helping you get back in the game.

Myofascial Release Technique

The Myofascial technique can be applied across parts of the body which contain soft tissue such as the shoulder, hip or legs and restore function and flexibility to contracted or shortened muscles thus improving blood flow. It primarily focuses on trigger points around the area causing pain and allows the muscles to start to return to their normal, more flexible and less painful state, increasing movement and balance at source.

Lymphatic Massage

Using rhythmic massage strokes and applying gentle pressure the Lymphatic massage encourages the natural process of draining toxic waste build up away from affected areas. This assists in detoxifying the body by removing excess proteins and reducing uncomfortable swelling in the regions that can include the arms and legs. Thus, allowing the natural healing process to begin to take place, as before treatment the body may have resisted the healing function to try to reduce pain levels.

Active Release Technique

Sufferers of carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatic nerve pain and many other conditions originating within the soft tissue areas of the body will benefit from the active release technique. Scar tissue can cause mobility issues by causing stiffness in joints and muscles. This technique starts to break up painful and binding scar tissue which can severely reduce flexibility. The compromised area is manipulated and isolated to allow normal blood flow to return the damaged area encouraging regeneration and healing.

Active Assisted Stretching Massage

It can be difficult to move muscles that are a constant source of pain, so having a professional work with you to apply a little extra pressure will boost the movement around the damaged muscle and muscle tissue. The prime benefit of this technique is the relief from muscle fatigue and the release of locked ligaments and joints to improve overall mobility and function.

Hot Stone and Cupping Techniques

Hot stone massage is a well-known relaxation technique to help reduce anxiety and stress, but it also has other benefits including assisting with sleep ailments and increasing the body’s production of the essential hormones that boost the immune system to provide a more overall sense of well-being.

The purpose behind cupping techniques is the extraction of toxic substances from the body to cleanse the system as a form of detoxification creating a healthier more refreshed and energized physical sensation.

Thai Massage

Through movement and the application of strategic pressure Thai massage is a more vigorous type of therapy as it involves the stroking, compression, and kneading of the muscles and the manipulation of joints. The pressure is applied using a much more physical approach often using the knees and feet to achieve positions comparable to those found in Yoga. Thai massage focuses on creating balance within both the body and mind.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage reaches further into the muscles and down to the connective tissue layer that supports and binds muscle tissue and other organs together by applying pressure with the hands, arms, and the body weight of the physiotherapist. It’s highly effective in treating chronic aches and pains in areas such as the neck and upper back and provides a welcome alleviation of pain in the afflicted area.

Trigger Point Massage

Trigger points are small tight areas within the muscles that cause pain in another area of the body away from the actual site of injury or damage. An example would be shoulder pain caused by a trigger point in the mid-range of the back. By working on the trigger points in cycles of pressure and release the compensating muscles will start to release and ease the pain in the area initially displaying the requirement for attention.

Shiatsu Massage

Shiatsu is a non-invasive therapy which has wide benefits when treating pain associated with headaches and migraines. Massage strokes including effleurage and kneading are applied using the fingers throughout the treatment. The focus is to apply the treatment to the body’s pressure or acupuncture points to manage stress and remove any unwanted blockages along the 12 meridian points. The meridian points are divided into Yin and Yang throughout the body and this type of applied therapy restores energy and balance alongside an increase in overall movement.

Sports Massage Reflexology

Sports massage reflexology is a combined, gentler approach to the easing of pain which is usually associated with strenuous sporting activity that is known to take its toll on the joints and muscles. The physical massage aspect of the therapy takes care of the immediate physical pain while reflexology concentrates on complete mental health and can provide much-needed relief from headaches, depression, insomnia, and many other exhausting emotional conditions.
