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 quite similar, with the use of circular movements, kneading, tapping and vibrations. However, sports massage is more area-specific, focusing on larger and older knots that have built up over longer periods of time due to high training volume, trauma, or poor technique. 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 sports massage uses dynamic connective tissue and stretching techniques. We recommend you to wear short sport pants and, in the case of women also a sports top.
