Sports Massage is not just for people who do sports and exercise. It can be of benefit to anyone who is experiencing muscular pain or discomfort. It can helps boost circulation which can enable quicker healing, help reduce swelling around joints, and relax muscles that have been retaining tension.
Sports Massage is a deep pressure treatment aimed at helping promote better movement rather than the more relaxed based or non sports massage treatments. Sports Massage is about targeting specific areas of issue where overuse, muscular imbalances and poor biomechanics may have created a build up of tension or pain. More specific techniques are used to release tension and support better movement.
Deep Tissue Massage
This type of massage applies a deep pressure but is more focused on treating the whole body and doesn't include specific techniques. Desiged to relax muscles and promote circulation.
Massage during pregnancy can help decrease levels of anxiety and stress and relieve areas of muscle pain and tension in the body that have built up throughout the pregnancy.
I also often use Kinesio Tape during pregnancy which can help reduce areas of tension in a natural and effective way.
