Sports or Deep Tissue Massage is manual manipulation of the muscles geared specifically toward helping people who have physically demanding lifestyles and/or hobbies. This kind of therapeutic massage considers the impact of certain activities on specific joints, muscle groups, tendons, ligaments, and soft tissue groups.

Sports massage is designed to assist in correcting problems and imbalances in soft tissue that are caused from repetitive and strenuous physical activity and trauma. The application of sports massage, prior to and after exercise, may enhance performance, aid recovery and prevent injury.

The sports massage technique mainly focuses on the areas most vulnerable to injury or stress as well as older and larger areas of built-up tension. For example, runners may need more work on their legs, while baseball pitchers may benefit from a shoulder and arm focus.

It is useful for anyone who exercises to increase flexibility, prevent injuries and help with healing after a sports injury. The aim of sports massage is to reduce the stress and tension that can build up in the soft tissues of the body during exercise.

 

Our Sports/Deep Tissue Massage is a high strength massage and benefits men or people with strong muscles and a big frame. It isn't for the faint hearted.

 

All our massages are performed by John.

 

Wet or Dry Cupping (Hijama)

What does Wet Cupping (Hijama) & Dry Cupping therapy do?

 

Stagnation of  blood can causes pain and disease within the body. Wet Cupping Hijama or Dry Cupping invigorates local circulation of blood in the area being treated, resolving swelling, pain, and tension. By drawing impurities to the surface, it removes toxins. Wet Cupping Hijama or Dry Cupping also loosens connective tissue or fascia and increases blood flow to the surface. Cupping also stimulates tissue relaxation and better cell-to-cell communication. It is also proven to relax tissue and reduce markers of inflammation. Inflammatory cytokines (chemical messengers) are reduced, and cytokines that promote healing and relaxation is increased.

Book your Hijama Sunnah days sessions early to avoid disappointment.
