Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage treatment is a sort of therapy that concentrates on the deep levels of muscle in the body, as the name implies. It works by concentrating the pressure far deeper than traditional massage treatment by employing slow and forceful massage strokes. It helps to relieve inflammation by boosting blood flow, and breaking down adhesions.
It’s especially helpful for people who have a chronic muscular problem or are trying to recover from an injury. It’s a popular sports massage method that can help you enhance your performance.
Soft Tissue Massage
Soft tissue massage is a method that is less invasive than deep tissue massage, as you might expect. Soft tissue massage, rather than relying on slow, pressured motions to influence the deep layers, works with a variety of depths, pressures, and durations.
The therapist will work on your muscles, tendons, and ligaments as a massage treatment, and in most ways is quite comparable to deep tissue massage techniques.
It’s a good way to relax muscles, release endorphins, relieve muscle tension, and promote blood circulation.
Whether you are a training for an event, part of a sports team or working out to stay fit- sports massage can benefit performance in the following ways:
- Muscles recover more quickly
- Adhesions are broken down
- Muscles perform efficiently and strongly
- Connective tissue remains supple
- Improved posture and muscle balance
- Reduced stress and work place fatigue
- Improved Circulation
- Increased Energy
