What is the difference between sports and deep tissue massage?
With sports massage we provide a combination of passive stretching and firm massage. Deep tissue massage has a deeper pressure targeted towards specific areas of tension. Both treatments are bespoke for the client and we adapt the massage pressure depending on the individual's needs.
Will a sports massage get rid of knots?
‘Knots’ are areas of muscular tension, massage is good way to help reduce muscular tensions. By applying a firm pressure you are encouraging further blood flow to your muscles to optimise healing. It is a great way to wind up down and relax. It is common to feel sore the day after a treatment but then you should your muscles should feel a little looser. You may need to consider having a few treatments depending on how tight your muscles are feeling.
What to expect on your first appointment
During the first massage session you will be asked about your current general health, whether you have any recent injuries or conditions. The massage therapist will then leave the treatment room and allow you to dress down to your underwear. Then lie onto the treatment plinth on your front face down placing a towel onto your back. The therapist will then return into the treatment room and start with your professional massage session. Our therapists are open to feedback if the massage pressure is too much or not enough then just let them know.
