Deep Tissue & Sports Massage

Overview

Deep tissue massage is one form of massage therapy that focuses on the deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue in the body. Some of the same strokes as classic massage therapy may be used, but the movement is generally slower and the pressure will be deeper and concentrated on the areas where the patient feels tension and pain.

Sports massage is also a form of bodywork geared toward athletes. However, whether you are involved in sports or not, massage is extremely beneficial for you to achieve a healthy mind and body. Firstly it prevents you from suffering repetitive and acute sports injuries. Secondly, it prepares your body for athletic activity. Thirdly, it helps maintain your body in its optimal condition, most importantly when you are training a lot and/or when training/activity volumes increase.

  • I’m fully insured and regulated by ARCHTI (Association Of Registered Complementary Health Therapists Of Ireland). This gives you peace of mind that you are in the safest hands

  • Discussion : Like any treatment, you should discuss what you hope to achieve with me before the treatment begins

  • It is important to know that it isn’t unusual to feel a degree of discomfort during the massage itself. The whole point of the treatment is to break up muscle tension , adhesions and scar tissue that often lie deeper musculature, so I will likely apply a good deal of pressure. However I will constantly communicate with the client to ensure pressure isn’t too uncomfortable.

  • Expect to be asked too breathe deeply when Im treating you the client especially tense or deep areas of your muscles

  • You can also expect to experience some stiffness and soreness in the day or so following your deep tissue massage

      Frequently Asked Questions

      Yes! Even if you don’t do any form of sport or exercise, our everyday movements still put stresses on our body, which can, over time, lead to long-term issues.

      Most sports injuries can benefit from a massage. Deep tissue massage & sports massage treatment is recognised by doctors and physios as beneficial to a variety of injuries. While deep tissue massage & sports massage are often used as a means of recovery from a sports injury, they can also be useful to prevent injuries in the first place.

      For an athlete training for a specific competition, a sports massage is needed on a weekly or twice-monthly basis. However, if you sit on a computer all day and want to relax your muscles, you may need a massage occasionally or once monthly to reduce the tension.

      It is quite normal for you to feel sore after a sports massage. The techniques you use stimulate muscles that clients may not normally use, results in delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), just like after exercise.

      If you are sick, have a fever, have an infection, or a serious medical condition you should seek professional advice prior to having a deep tissue or sports massage.

      If you have suffered a severe injury seek treatment with a medical doctor to address the injury and then talk us to decide how best to proceed.
