Sports Massage is beneficial as a preventative therapy and regular maintenance treatment is recommended to prevent injuries/tension recurring.

Sports massage is a physical therapy designed around the patient’s needs using clinically based musculoskeletal and nervous system techniques to help relieve soft tissue pain, restore movement and prevent injury. In essence, it helps the body heal itself.
Deep Tissue massage is similar to sports massage and is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia. This type of massage focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles. Deep tissue massage is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain and are involved in heavy physical activity, such as athletes, and patients who have sustained physical injury. It is also not uncommon for the recipient of Deep Tissue Massage to have their pain replaced with a new muscle ache for a day or two. Deep tissue work varies greatly and what one individual might view as deep tissue, another may call light. When receiving deep tissue work it is important to communicate what you are feeling and discuss how your body is responding to treatment with your massage therapist.
