How can Sports and Remedial Massage help?
Sports and Remedial massage are often looked at as a very similar treatment. We often get asked what the difference between the two is and which one would best suit you!
What is Sports Massage?
Sports massage therapists often have an understanding of the body, particularly the muscles, tendons and ligaments with relation to the demands that sport places on the body. However, you don’t need to partake in a sport to have a sports massage. General tension from everyday stresses of day to day life can be relieved by sports massage. Sports massage is often quite vigorous to treat muscles deeply and may involve using a number of different techniques including stretching to relieve muscles tension and injury.
What is Remedial Massage?
Remedial Massage is one of the most effective ways to treat and prevent muscle injuries, pain and soreness. Remedial massage is based on the fact that soft tissue responds to touch. Remedial massage can be soft or strong depending on whether you want to treat deep or shallow muscle tissue. The therapist can treat the whole body and is often trained in the assessment of a number of conditions.
At 21st Century Clinic in Reading, Elise Beechen is trained in Sports and Remedial Massage and combines the two treatments to help patients with muscular pain and discomfort.
