We provide high quality Deep tissue, Sports and Remedial massage to the Portsmouth area, our massage therapists are highly effective in the treatment of soft tissue injury, muscle niggles as well as general tension and stress. Despite its title, sports and deep tissue massage is not just for athletes but is a popular and successful mode of treatment for many individuals with muscle tightness, discomfort or pain.
Sports massage is a practical, no-nonsense massage treatment which aims to stretch tight muscles, stimulate inactive muscles and improve soft tissue condition. It enables the body to move more freely, and, over time can help improve posture.
Sports massage techniques include:
- Remedial Massage – developed from traditional massage disciplines, this is used to help release tight muscles and to stimulate repair
- Soft Tissue Release (STR) – A mechanical lock and stretch technique to stretch and ‘unstick’ congested muscle tissue
- Muscle Energy Technique (MET) – stimulation of the nervous system, enabling muscles to be stretched and to encourage inactive muscles
- Neuromuscular Technique (NMT) – using the nervous system to eradicate pain and tension. Trigger points can also be deactivated using this technique
