Sports/deep tissue massage is a deep tissue massage based on Swedish techniques that use the application of pressure to manipulate soft tissue. Sports massage incorporates all of these Swedish massage movements, together with additional intensive techniques that are specifically designed to prevent and treat sports injuries.
Sports/deep tissue massage aims to improve the suppleness and flexibility of muscles and joints, improve blood circulation, speed up the healing of damaged or stressed muscles, tissues and joints, and prevent future muscle and tendon injuries.
The treatment time depends on the purpose of the treatment. For example, for a particular injury on one body part it can last 30-45 minutes. For more than one body part or a general full body sports massage it can last for 1 hour to 90minutes.
The main benefits of having a sports massage is to improve muscle flexibility, blood circulation and reduce swelling, aid the prevention of sports injuries and assists the body with recovery and repair after sports injuries have been sustained.
