You do not need to be a sports performer to benefit from sports massage. The benefits above can also help relieve the many day to day problems, repetitive strain injury, sprains, tension, fatigue, that everyone experiences.
Sports massage is not intended to be relaxing it can be very intense and slightly uncomfortable if you have injuries, however the feeling afterwards is great with an instant feeling of loose relaxed muscles.
The most popular of massage treatments, this massage gives the body a relaxed but rejuvenated feeling. The pressure is generally medium to firm and has long flowing strokes with fast paced rhythmic movements. Muscles begin to feel more loosened and you can feel the good effects straight away. Swedish massage eases muscle tension and promotes relaxation.
Traditionally Lomi Lomi is a deep, therapeutic type of massage designed to release muscle tension and consequently physical stress. The ancient Hawaiian shaman believed in a strong mind-body connection and believed that muscle tension and mental stress were highly related. By using the techniques of the Lomi Lomi the shaman or kahuna would release tense muscles and provide an overall healing treatment to the recipient. The massage is done using flowing strokes that go from head to toe in a continuous, rhythmic movement using mainly the forearms massaging both the top and the underside of your body.
For pressure that is firm and hard but not to hurt or bruise but to increase blood flow to that muscle that is tight and knotted. A deep tissue massage is relaxing but is for the individual that may have areas on the body that they want to target and release the tension that won’t budge by applying firm pressure to your muscles with hands, fingertips, knuckles, elbows and forearms. Deep tissue massage stimulates muscles and body tissues beyond the exterior level.
