Massage may be used to treat a variety of conditions, from inducing a state of relaxation to pain and injury management. Massage sessions can be individually tailored to treat a wide range of ailments including sore and tired muscles, stress tension and headaches, backaches, neck and shoulder pain, and sport and activity related injuries.
There are numerous massage styles available including:
Relaxation massage: A smooth, flowing style that is light and gentle with long strokes. Therapeutic massage is one of the most effective ways to prevent and treat muscle injuries, pain and soreness. Massage helps to restore function to 'soft tissues' and is designed to treat both deep and superficial tissue.
Deep tissue massage: more intense than a relaxation massage, aiming to get to those deep set muscle aches and pains releasing stress build-up.
Remedial massage: aimed more at injury treatment and prevention, remedial massage focuses on a smaller area of the body aiming to maximise recovery.
Sports massage: Pre and post event massage can be aimed at loosening the body and increasing your range of motion to maximise your results, or it can be used to minimise your recovery time, helping the body overcome the rigors of the event.
