There are three common types of massage therapy all having various benefits. Our massage and myo-therapist explains the differences.
Is a type of massage that uses gentle, flowing techniques that helps to de-stress the client. The pressure I apply could be soft or deep pressure but not painful. If you have a really stressful day or week relaxation massage may the good one for you.
Remedial massage usually focuses on a musculoskeletal disorder or chronic pain. I perform an assessment and muscle tests before giving treatment to the client. I may utilise trigger point technique, joint mobilization, a myofascial technique to help client musculoskeletal problems.
Sports massage can be preventative or restorative. Preventative is usually given before a sports event, utilise flowing, a rapid technique to warm up the muscle, release muscle tension and increase blood circulation. Where post-event aimed to flush out toxins, lactic acid on the muscle and help to speed up the recovery and injury prevention.
