This is a direct, targeted type of massage, which will be applied to a specific area of the body to facilitate the activity of the sportsman, aid in recovery from a sporting activity or to help treat an injury.

Deep Tissue Massage includes most other types of massage to some degree as well as deeper, high strength techniques that work right into the muscles in order to break down any fibrous adhesions or scar tissue.

Remedial Massage uses the same techniques as Sports Massage, but is applied to non-sports people. It helps them to recover from injuries picked up in everyday life, be it from tripping over on ice, over a kerb, or from overworking in the garden. Remedial Massage also looks more at the overall postural problems that a client might have that contribute to niggling pains or injuries and starts to redress these.
