Sports/Clinical Massage at About Balance Brighton
Sports/Clinical massage is a form of massage involving the manipulation of soft tissue through different advanced massage techniques. Soft tissue is connective tissue that has not hardened into bone and cartilage; it includes skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia.
This massage is designed to assist in correcting problems and imbalances in soft tissue that are caused from repetitive and strenuous physical activity, trauma and non-activity. It is a great treatment for those who are in training/engaged in regular physical acitivity, or those who are sedentary and looking for relief from chronic pain caused by an injury or by postural problems.
Sports/Clinical massage is incorporating many different massage techniques, such as myofascial release, assisted stretching, trigger point release and deep tissue work. Sometimes a mild temporary discomfort can occur during the treatment as we work on tender areas. If you feel like this is too much for you just ask your therapiest to apply a little less pressure. Although unusual, a mild discomfort might be felt for a few days after the treatment too. The discomfort usually disappears after a few days, leaving you feeling more flexible, more aligned and and more energised.
