Comparing Deep Tissue Massage vs Sports Massage

Deep Tissue Massage vs Sports Massage?

Everyone deserves a little pampering from time to time, and massage therapy is one of the best ways to give your body the attention it needs.

But with so many different types of massage out there, it can be difficult to figure out which type is right for you.

Here, we’ll take a look at two of the most popular types of massage: deep tissue massage and sports massage.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep-tissue massage is exactly what it sounds like—a deep-tissue massage that focuses on targeting specific areas of tension in the body. This type of massage typically uses slower, firmer strokes than other forms of massage.

It’s ideal for those who have chronic muscle pain or are recovering from an injury, as it can help reduce inflammation and break up scar tissue.

Sports Massage

Sports massages are designed to focus on a specific body area that has been injured or overused during physical activity.

This type of massage is often used by athletes and people who need relief from sore muscles after a game or workout. It helps increase the affected area’s circulation and flexibility while reducing stiffness and tension.

Since sports massages are tailored specifically for each individual, they can also be used as preventative care to avoid further injuries down the line.

What is the difference?

Both deep tissue massage and sports massage offer unique benefits that are perfect for different individuals depending on their individual needs and goals & both options can provide great results in terms of relaxation and stress relief. 

So if you’re looking for relief from chronic pain or muscle tension, or looking to improve your performance and prevent injury, then book an appointment with Cass, our Sports Massage therapist.
