Developed to help with muscle systems used for a particular sport, Sports Massage uses a variety of approaches to help athletes in training — before, during, or after sports events. You might use it to promote flexibility and help prevent injuries. Or, it may help muscle strains, aiding healing after a sports injury. Sports Massage is used to enhance strength, performance and speed in athletes and to remove toxins and lactic acid after exercise. Many different movements and techniques are used in sports massage depending on each client’s physical condition.
Deep Tissue Massage:
Much like any other massage, Deep Tissue Massage utilize a variety of techniques that can help your sore muscles achieve repair and eliminate pain. With a deep tissue massage, the technique differs in that the therapist will apply more pressure to certain areas of your body in an effort to reach the deepest layers of tissue surrounding your muscles (called “fascia”) as well as deeper muscle tissue. The ultimate reason is to break away scar tissue (or “adhesions”) at the heart of your muscles that could either have formed from injury or prolonged wear and tear.
Physical and emotional stress find their way to build up in our muscles and can be reduced through therapeutic touch
This kind of massage aims to soothe the mental, emotional and physical body of an individual. Holistic massage is an ancient lore of healing that improves circulation and lymphatic drainage aiding the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the body’s cells whilst at the same time eliminating toxins, releasing muscular tension and boosting the immune system. It’s a relaxing massage which calms the mind and reduces everyday physical and emotional stress on the body.
Holistic massage, in essence, allows the inner you to come through and stabilizes all the instability in your body to help you achieve complete peace of body, mind, and soul.
Treatments are individually tailored for each client to help balance the body physically, mentally and emotionally. By recognizing that disease and stress affect not just the physical but also psychological, spiritual and mental well-being, holistic healing massage enables the body’s natural recovery capabilities to come forth and stabilize the entire body as a whole.
