The terms “sports massage” and “deep tissue massage” are often used to mean the same thing because the techniques are the same. To us, the difference between sports massage and deep tissue massage is the level of knowledge.
Sports massage practitioners undergo more training than deep tissue massage therapists and will have more knowledge when it comes to injuries.
What Is Sports Massage?
Sports massage is a form of massage suited to addressing muscular and postural problems. It involves not only superficial techniques to aid with circulation, it also involved deeper work to get into the muscles allowing them to release their tension.
Techniques involved vary from light superficial techniques to deeper, more specific applications. The techiques used depends on you when you come in and what you are looking for and what we think your body needs.
Who Can Benefit From A Sports Massage?
As mentioned already you don’t need to be a sports person to have a sports massage, although it is perfect for those who do work out!
People who come in for sports massage with us are quite often corporate workers who live around the North Finchley area who will try where possible to get to the gym or go for a run whenever they get the time to!
Most of our clients who live in and around North Finchley have busy and stressful lives and will come in to get some of their tension released from the stresses of home and work, or they will come in to help them deal with joint niggles, aches and pains.
The people we see either commute into London to work every day, working at a desk mainly, or they stay in the North Finchley area to look after family. But ultimately it doesn’t matter what you do, whether or not you are sporty, or are old or young. Sports massage is suitable for the majority of people and we would always be willing to help you out and guide you to what you would benefit from the most.
