Soft Tissue Massage Therapy

Soft tissue massage therapy involves direct physical action upon the soft tissues of your body. Your muscles, tendons, ligaments, or other connective tissue such as fascia are the target structures.

Massage therapists possess a variety of massage styles, which they customise to each client. Soft tissue techniques include a whole range of massage depths, pressures, and durations.

Massage Styles Include:

Swedish Massage

A gentle and relaxing massage style that incorporates long, smooth strokes to relax and soften superficial muscles. An excellent massage option for those looking for a gentle treatment to promote that relaxed and stress-free feeling.

Deep Tissue Massage

A deeper massage is targeting the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. This massage style incorporates slow, deep strokes to break up stubborn knots and tight soft tissues. Deep tissue massage is excellent for those who suffer from chronic tightness, scar tissue formation, repetitive strain, or regular physical activity.

Sports Massage

Sports massage specifically treats those involved in physical activity. Sports massage focuses on preventing and treating injury while also enhancing athletic performance. Therapists will commonly use a mixture of Swedish and deep tissue massage techniques. The massage therapist will frequently finish your sports massage with some gentle stretch therapy.

Remedial Massage

Remedial massage is a modality that incorporates numerous techniques to locate and treat musculoskeletal imbalances and chronic/acute pain. Specific techniques used include: Swedish and deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, myofascial release, muscle energy techniques and stretching. Remedial massage is useful for those suffering from a particular complaint or those who want to ensure their body is functioning at its optimum level.

Pregnancy Massage

A massage using a selection of Swedish, deep and therapeutic massage techniques reduces stress, decreases swelling, relieves aches and pains, and reduces anxiety and depression. Pregnancy massages occur with the woman on her side or back. Your massage therapist will customise the massage to a woman’s individual needs.
