SPORTS, DEEP TISSUE, SWEDISH MASSAGE
Listen to your Body
Its time to massage!
A good Sports and Remedial massage is the art of kneading, rolling, stretching and pummelling fatigued, tired, knotted, sore, aching muscles back into shape with invigorated life and can be used in the case of injury or rehabilitation
Sports Massage is a deep tissue treatment using insertion and exit points and although it can be relaxing to some clients for most it definitely is challenging and not at all a whale music and smelly candles experience

Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a focused, therapeutic massage that targets muscle knots (also known as “adhesions”) and specific problem areas in the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue.
Using deliberate, slow strokes or friction across the grain of the muscle, we addresses chronic tight or painful muscles, repetitive strain, postural problems, or injuries
Deep tissue massage is generally more intense than that of a Swedish massage, but it shouldn’t be painful to be effective
This type of massage is particularly beneficial for people with chronic pain or lingering injuries that cause limited mobility.
It’s effective in treating repetitive stress injuries such as tennis elbow or carpal tunnel syndrome and can be helpful in reducing the symptoms of osteoarthritis
Swedish massage is based on the Western concepts of anatomy and physiology, compared to the energy-centric style more common in Asian forms of massage
Using massage oil we typically begin with broad general strokes and then transition to specific strokes to address problem areas
There are five basic strokes that we use: effleurage (long smooth strokes), petrissage (kneading and rolling), plucking (lifting and pulling), cupping, tapotement (hacking) and pounding (vibration and shaking movements)Swedish massage provides full-body muscle relaxation, and it can be especially helpful if you’re recovering from an injury
