Description: Deep Tissue Massage is a technique that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It aims to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas, either following or going across the fibre's of the muscles, tendons and fascia. Also helps to break up and eliminate scar tissue.
Deep tissue massage usually focuses on more specific areas and may cause some soreness during or right after the massage.
The technique is often used in combination with other massage procedures such as those used in Remedial and Sports Massage.†
Other physical and psychological benefits include:
General and specific relaxation of muscles, providing immediate relief.
Fibrous adhesions (knots and nodules) can be broken down.
Loosening of the scalp.
Relaxation of the whole body.
Dispersal of toxins from tense, knotted muscles
Improved circulation of blood and increased oxygen uptake.
Stimulation and improvement of the circulation of the lymphatic system.
Help in the relief of eyestrain and tension headaches.
Excellent for disturbed sleep and insomnia
Help with mental tiredness and tension.
Relief from mental and emotional stress.
The prime purpose of sports massage therapy is to help alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the bodyís soft tissues during physical activity. Where minor injuries and lesions occur, due to overexertion and/or overuse, massage can break them down quickly and effectively. Above all, it can help prevent those niggling injuries that so often get in the way of performance and achievement, whether one is an athlete, ardent keep-fitter or a once a week jogger.
This treatment is not just for the sports person: anyone can benefit from sports massage, including people in physically demanding jobs and those not quite so obvious (occupational, emotional and postural stress may produce many similar characteristics to sports injuries).
Maintenance Massage: A regular massage treatment programme based on the therapistís understanding of anatomy and of the muscles used in a given sport and which are likely candidates for trouble. By concentrating on particular muscle groups the therapist can help the athlete maintain or improve range of motion and muscle flexibility.
