The treatment works by penetrating just the top layer of your muscles. It is probably the most common form of massage. Its main goal is to aid your relaxation, relieve stiffness, tension and improve your circulation. The therapist applies oil to your skin and uses flowing strokes and kneading movements to relieve tension in your muscles. The treatment incorporates light and deep movements, allowing your mind and body to unwind through the release of tension from your muscles, also stimulating your body’s circulatory systems. Long-term benefits can include an overall feeling of well-being and increased confidence. It may also help to improve your muscle tone and the appearance of your skin.

These styles get down into the muscles that are under the top layer of your skin. They tend to be deeper, slower, and more muscle specific to help resolve pain. There are forms of massage that can help remedy specific acute and chronic conditions such as frozen shoulder, neck pain, migraine and sciatica. This type of massage is more focused  vigorous and uses various movement strokes to loosen your muscles. It helps break patterns of tension, chronic pain, including inflammation-related pain such as tendonitis, and improves range of motion.

Sports Massage therapy is a form of deep soft tissue manipulation that uses several specific techniques to treat physically active individuals, anyone involved in heavy-duty physical activities and sport performance who may be more vulnerable to injury because of the stresses placed on their body by exertion. Sports massage can relieve niggling aches and pains before they develop more serious overuse injuries. It can also be great for post event relaxation and recovery, and help to relieve stress, tension, and fatigue. Sports massage is generally used to provide rehabilitation from soft tissue injury, to maintain muscular conditioning and joint flexibility for competition, in order to maximise athletic potential. In addition it eases the effects caused by severe exercise such as myofascial shortening i.e. restrictions in your body’s contractile (muscle) and non-contractile supportive (fascia) connective tissues. Therefore it can help keep your body flexible, aid your performance, and assist you in rehabilitation from injuries. Sports massage can be used to help you prepare for physical activity, assist in the prevention of injuries, and aid in your recovery from physical exertion after competition or training. Although, as its name implies, Sports massage is a form more geared towards the athlete, it is equally effective in dealing with the problems caused by heavy work and the stresses of everyday living.
