Therapeutic & Deep Tissue Massage are special forms of massage and are typically used before, during, and after athletic events or extreme tension.
The main purpose of therapeutic massage therapy is to help alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity or at stressful times. Where minor injuries and lesions occur, due to overexertion and/or overuse, massage can break them down quickly and effectively. The massage will help prepare you for peak performance, to drain away fatigue, to relieve swelling, to reduce muscle tension, to promote flexibility and to prevent injuries. Therapeutic massage can help prevent those niggling injuries that so often get in the way of performance and achievement, whether a person is a competitive athlete or a weekend warrior.
Each type of sport has different demands on the players thus each sport uses muscle groups in a different way. Deep Tissue massage is designed to address those specific concerns and may differ according to the sport the athlete plays. Deep Tissue massage can be aimed to help heal strained muscles and allow healthy ones to reach peak performance and maintain it while minimizing the risk of injury.
Deep Tissue massage has many benefits. In addition to feeling good, reduces the heart rate and blood pressure, increases blood circulation and lymph flow, reduces muscle tension, improves flexibility, and relieves pain. can also include pre-event, post-event and maintenance techniques that promote greater athletic endurance and performance, lessen chances of injury and reduce recovery time. These massages are not meant for relaxation and you should choose a lighter massage if that is what you require.
