Treatment explanation

Both deep tissue and sports massage fall within the rehabilitative therapy category. The strokes and techniques used during a deep tissue and a sports massage are fairly similar, with the use of circular movements, kneading, tapping and vibrations being consistent across both. In deep tissue massage the therapist uses firm pressure to manipulate the deeper tissues of the body, including the muscles. Deep tissue massage tends not to focus on a specific injury or one particular area of the body, instead being administered as a full body massage or focused on lower limbs or the upper body. This very dynamic treatment ensures a total stress and fatigue release that alleviates and works preventively against contractures and injuries, reduces recovery time, improves range of motion and strength performance and increases endurance. Ready to drive your next achievement? IMPORTANT NOTE: Our deep tissue massage uses dynamic connective tissue and stretching techniques. For aesthetic protection we recommend you to wear short sport pants and, in the case of women also a sports top. When the massage begins, your massage therapist usually starts with lighter pressure to warm up your muscles and then works into deeper pressure.
