for Massage Types
Swedish Massage is a gentle, therapeutic massage performed with long, gliding strokes to promote health conditions, physical, mental and emotional well-being. Swedish helps to warm up the muscles; it increases blood circulation, lymphatic flow and the removal of metabolic waste. Swedish stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system to bring about relaxation and decrease feelings of stress and anxiety.
Deep Tissue Massage works the deeper layers of muscle, including connective tissue like fascia, and treats symptoms such as pain, tensions and restrictions. It uses deep pressured techniques with a slow pace to reach the necessary areas and is used to break down adhesions (which are hard, fibrous tissues); realigning them into the correct position. The benefits of this massage is usually felt within 2-3 days after.
Sports massage is a deeper form of massage to manipulate the soft tissues and is used in a sporting/non-sporting context. It is based on a blend of Swedish elements whilst incorporating techniques of stretching, frictions and trigger points to provide protection from injuries and optimise performance. It relieves tightness and increases joint mobility and is used for relaxation of the muscular skeletal system, to increase body awareness.
Massage is for everyone. For athletes, professional and non-professional; people with physically demanding or stressful jobs wanting protection against and recovery from soft tissue injuries.
It provides stress relief from a fast-paced lifestyle, relieves aches & pains, sprains/strains our bodies acquire from daily tasks or intense exercise. It promotes the health and well-being of an individual.
