Different Types of Massage
March 15, 2022Find out more
Massage is the manipulation of soft tissues within the body, to relieve tension, promote self-healing, recover from injury, aid relaxation and promote general wellbeing, however the benefits of massage are numerous.
It is usually performed with just the therapists hands, however deep tissue techniques will use forearms, fists or the elbows of the therapist. In the case of a hot stones massage, smooth flat basalt stones are used.
There are many different types of massage, at Magdalen Health we offer Swedish, Sports and Hot Stones. Swedish massage is the general term for a massage that promotes relaxation and general wellbeing.
Sports massage uses techniques that work on the deeper layers of muscle tissue to help free up any knots and adhesions that might be restricting movement and preventing the muscles working as efficiently as they should. It can also be used for someone who is recovering from an injury as healing is often more effective with the help of deep tissue massage. Equally though regular sports massage treatments will help to prevent injury and if you are someone who does a lot of exercise, then recovery time between training sessions can be improved as can performance generally.
