Types of Massage Therapy - What type of massage is good for you?
Massage is defined as the systematic manipulation of the soft tissues of the body for a curative effect. Soft tissues are made more pliable through massage to promote circulation and blood flow and bring about healing effects: physical and psychological changes for general wellbeing.
- Swedish - A gentle type of full-body massage which is ideal for people who are new to massage, have a lot of tension, and/or are sensitive to touch. It can help reduce knots in the muscles and it's a good choice if you want to completely relax during the massage.
- Remedial - Works to heat the muscles and tendons that are damaged, impaired or knotted. It holistically treats the whole body, and traces the discomfort back to the original cause. It uses specialised techniques to support and speed up the body's on repair mechanisms. The massage is applied directly to the skin with an oil lubricant. Passive stretches are also employed by your Therapist.
- Deep Tissue - Uses more pressure than the Swedish Massage. It's a good option if you have chronic muscle problems such as soreness, injury or imbalances. It can help relieve tight muscles, chronic muscle soreness and anxiety.
- Sports - Is a good choice if you have a repetitive injury to a muscle. It's also a good option if you're injury prone or if you want to improve flexibility or even performance. A Sports Massage can also be used to relieve pain and/or anxiety, and can be performed on a certain muscle/group or the entire body.
