Sports Massage is a specific and more focused form of massage that is typically used before, during, and after athletic events.
The purpose of the massage is to prepare the athlete for peak performance, to drain away fatigue, to relieve swelling, to reduce muscle tension, to promote flexibility and to prevent injuries. The main purpose of sports massage therapy is to help alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity.
Swedish Massage is a relaxing and invigorating full body massage that combines various modalities, such as deep tissue and neuromuscular techniques. It enhances the nerves, muscles, glands, circulation, as well as stimulates the skin. It reduces stress, both emotional and physical, and is suggested a regular program for stress management. It also has many specific medical uses.
Swedish Massage can be used to promote general well-being and enhance self-esteem, while boosting the circulatory, and immune systems, as well as aid blood pressure, muscle tone, digestion, and skin tone.
THERAPEUTIC DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Deep tissue massage focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronic aches and pains and contracted areas such as stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.
Some of the same strokes are used in a Swedish massage, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain in order to reach the sub-layer of muscles and the fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles).
TRIGGER POINT/NEUROMUSCULAR THERAPY
Neuromuscular therapy is a massage involving the neurological system and the muscular system. A focused technique in which quasi-static pressure is applied to soft tissue to stimulate the muscle.
Neuromuscular therapy deals with trigger points. Trigger points are highly irritated areas in muscles that can ‘transfer’ pain to other parts of the body. For example it’s not uncommon for a trigger point in the neck to cause pain through the arms, chest and back. De-activating trigger points relieves pain caused by individual muscles that are tighter than they should be.
