Remedial and Sports massage

Sports massage is chiefly focused on maintaining the active body in better physical condition, preventing injuries and loss of mobility, boosting athletic performance and endurance and restoring mobility to injured muscle tissue. It aims to extend good health and the general life of one’s “athletic career” by using deeper, more focused pressure, friction and compression strokes of massage.

The breaking up of muscle spasm may sometimes be painful but by contrast, the general massage is beneficial as it relaxes tensions and helps to speed up the body’s natural healing process.

Remedial massage/Swedish massage also uses deep massage strokes but mainly longer and more gently relaxing to ease aches and pains and facilitate healing, rejuvenate circulation, stimulate lymphatic drainage and promote a sense of peace, deep relaxation and well-being.
