What is the difference between sports and remedial massage?

In truth, not a lot. Sports massage is usually a lot deeper type of massage than remedial massage. Sports massage is typically used to help treat sports injuries by releasing knots and help re-align damaged muscle tissue. Remedial massage is a much more gentle approach ideally suited for those who just simply wish to relax and unwind.

However, for many non sports related injuries and problems, deeper pressure is much more effective and many people will benefit more with having a combination of both sports and remedial massage rather than just having a relaxing remedial massage. Depending on the nature of the problem will determine the best form of massage. In simple terms, remedial massage is a way to help just relax and unwind, sports massage is the treatment of muscle damage and knots.

Sports massage can stop headaches

Sports massage headaches
More and more people are reporting to our Salisbury and New Forest Centre’s suffering with headaches. Sports massage is fast becoming the treatment of choice to stop this debilitating condition.

The most common treatment prescribed by doctors for headaches are painkillers. Although this can temporarily reduce symptoms it does not necessarily address the underlying issue.

There are many reasons why headaches occur, however, one of the most common is due to tight muscle tissue located in the neck and shoulders. These areas of tightness are known as trigger points.

Trigger points can be described as “little knots” that can be felt within
muscle tissue. They often cause pain at the site they are located,
however, they can also cause pain in other areas of the body. This is
called “referred pain”.

Releasing trigger points can stop the headaches

Sports massage can stop headaches

Trigger points located in the shoulder and neck muscles often refer headache type pain to the head. Taking prescribed painkillers will target the symptoms of the headache but will not treat the trigger points located in the muscles. This is why people suffering with headaches will quite often experience headaches on a regular basis.

Sports massage works by directly targeting trigger points. Over the past few months we have seen dramatic results with the use of sports massage for people suffering with headaches.

Sports massage is a natural way to not only tackle symptoms of headaches but also directly tackle the cause of headaches. If you would like to know more about how sports massage can help you then please contact either our Salisbury Centre or New Forest Centre by clicking here

Pre-event sports massage

Pre-event sports massage is used to help prepare an athlete or individual for competetion. This could be on the day of the event or up to 3 or 4 days before. It works by improving tissue elasticity, removal of waste products from hard training and encouraging blood flow to help physiological and psychological prepartion.

Post-event massage

Post-event massage helps the muscles to recover from competition by improving the removal of lactic acid and waste products, maintaining flexibility and encouraging the healing of minor damages to the muscles, tendons and ligaments. It also helps prepare for the next event however long it maybe away.
