How does it work?
The sports massage is a collection of massage techniques specifically designed to aid in recovery. It is a manual form of therapy that involves the application of pressure to work out any affected muscles or joints. 5 techniques are commonly employed, each with its own set of effects:
❱❱ Effleurage: a gliding motion that warms tissue and promotes local circulation.
❱❱ Petrissage: kneading technique to loosen muscle spasms and reduce swelling.
❱❱ Tapotement: a striking motion that stimulates the muscle tissue.
❱❱ Friction: short, deep strokes that breaks up scar tissue and triggers local inflammation responses.
❱❱ Vibration: relaxes the muscles and promotes local circulation.
What are the benefits?
This technique can aid in several benefits, including decreased muscle tension and enhancing your overall athletic performance by targeting your muscles. Different combos of different massage techniques can also improve different physiological variables; for example, combining the Effleurage, Petrissage and Vibration techniques can help promote better blood flow, among other things. And of course, this massage will be administered by none other than our experienced Recovery Specialists!
Sports massage vs. Deep tissue
A sports massage primarily focuses on areas that have been or are prone to being injured, such as your hamstrings. Sports massages are used to prevent injuries along with many other benefits which include performance enhancing qualities, such as increasing tissue elasticity and lessening muscle strain. Therefore, they are commonly recommended to athletes and active people. In comparison, deep-tissue massages focus on muscles as well as connective tissue. They are used to relieve chronic pain and improve posture. Whilst this treatment is used by athletes and active folk, it is also beneficial to those who find themselves sitting in one position, perhaps at a desk or computer, for extended periods of time.
Who is it recommended for?

The history of massage therapy dates to 3000 BCE in India, where it was considered a sacred system of healing. The knowledge and techniques were passed down from generation to generation in order to nurse injuries and cure diseases.
