Sports Massage

A Sports Massage primarily works on problems which stem from athletic performance, training and injury. The focus is specific to the muscle groups which the athlete uses most often. Massage Therapists work deep into the muscle fibres to alleviate stress, tension and pressure which builds in your soft tissue during physical activity. Our Sports Massage Therapists have 3 main focuses in this treatment:

  • Muscle Energy Techniques
  • Soft Tissue Manipulation 
  • Trigger Point or Pressure Point

Many sports injuries are brought on by the overuse of muscles and a regular Sports Massage helps to reduce the initial inflammation which can lead to injury. After regular sessions, you can expect to see an increase in flexibility, mobility and a reduction in the risk of sports injuries. Athletes, from world-class professionals to weekly runners, can all benefit from a regular sports massage to improve their performance.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage uses a deeper pressure than Swedish massage while still using a lot of the same techniques to target common areas of pain. Your massage therapist will use deep tissue massage to focus on realigning the deeper layers of the muscle. The pressure will be increased compared to the Swedish massage to allow manipulation of these deeper tissues. This type of massage is mostly used for chronic aches and pain and also to help alleviate tension in various areas such as a stiff neck, upper back and lower back.

With chronic muscle tension or injury, there are usually areas in the muscle often called 'adhesions' (areas of painful, rigid tissue). These can be found in most types of soft tissue in the body. Adhesions can disrupt blood flow, cause pain, limit movement, and sometimes cause inflammation in the affected area. We can use this massage to help physically break down these adhesions to focus on relieving pain and restoring a normal range of movement to the affected muscles.  You can book a deep tissue massage in Glasgow or Edinburgh.

Swedish Massage

A Swedish Massage aims to give you relief from stressful pressures of day-to-day life. Swedish Massage provides the psychological benefits of relaxation whilst relieving tension from muscle knots. Your Swedish Massage will be performed by a soft tissue specialist who manipulates the tissue of the body to reduce muscle spasm, relieve pain and allow you to enjoy well-deserved relaxation or invigoration. Your Massage Therapist uses different degrees of intensity, depending on what you’re looking to achieve. Choose a Swedish Massage if you deserve some relaxation and rejuvenation
