Deep Tissue massage (sometimes called a sports massage) is the management, manipulation, and rehabilitation of the soft tissues of the body e.g. muscles, ligaments, and tendons. It is tailored to each individual’s needs to positively enhance their ability to function whether it’s dynamic sports or general, everyday activities.


Some of the benefits of Deep Tissue massage include:

  • Improve circulation and lymphatic flow (water retention)
  • Greater removal of metabolic waste
  • Increase the healing speed of soft tissue damage
  • Optimize scar tissue remodeling
  • Assist in mental preparation for sport
  • Exfoliation and nourishment of the skin
  • Relaxation and reduction of stress levels
  • Reduction of adrenalin and blood pressure
  • Reduce muscle stiffness, pain and fatigue
  • Increase flexibility and range of movement

If you have an active lifestyle, exercise, play sports to keep fit, or compete then sports massage has something to offer you.



Swedish Massage is the classic type
and probably what you perceive a massage to be. Massages in this category employ three basic flowing strokes of Effleurage, Petrissage and Tapotement. Effleurage is the light flowing strokes that glide across the skin, Petrissage is slightly deeper and works on the muscles, and Tapotement is a light chopping. This style of massage is prefect for unwinding after a frantic week.
