Relaxation massage ultimately relaxes the body and mind by the use of long, smooth gliding strokes, which are rhythmic and flowing. It is a form of massage, which aims to deeply relax the body without pain. Unlike Myotherapy, Sports/Remedial and Deep tissue massage the aim is not to relieve chronic pain or address any underlying ailments.
Relaxation massage is beneficial for improving day to day living and taking control over the body’s response to stress.
Remedial & Deep Tissue Massage
Remedial massage is a more advanced form of relaxation massage as a therapist has an understanding of anatomy and physiology to physically assess, treat and manage various musculoskeletal conditions. Remedial massage is effective in the treatment of reduced range of motion conditions, pain and soft tissue dysfunctions. The therapists at Body Align Myotherapy aim to provide a thorough and specific massage to reduce muscle tension which can be targeted by releasing points of tension when found or specifically focusing on areas of tension.
Remedial massage is beneficial as it targets muscles specifically to return them to their normal resting lengths, ensuring the body is being used at its optimal level, free of pain caused by day-to day activities.
Some benefits include;
- Relieves muscle soreness.
- Accelerates healing process, break down and removal of scar tissue
- Increases blood circulation, lymphatic system & energy levels
Sports massage is a form of massage aimed at creating minimal inflammation and soreness pre or post event. Lighter, longer strokes are used to flush out muscles to increase muscle recovery time. This is accompanied with stretching and muscle energy techniques to lengthen the muscles and increase range of movement. Sports massage helps to improve performance, increase range and quality of movement and also prevent injury.
