Swedish Deep Tissue Massage 2017-05-23T08:15:57+00:00

At Luck’s Yard we offer both Swedish Deep Tissue Massage and Sports Massage – both therapies are explained below:

Swedish Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is a type of massage aimed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia, also called connective tissue. During a massage, the therapist works to release any chronic muscle tension or knots you may have – also known as ‘adhesions’.

Swedish deep tissue massage is designed to make you feel more relaxed. It can improve your circulation and soothe your muscles.

The five main techniques used in Swedish massage are stroking and gliding, kneading, rubbing and tapping or ‘pounding’.

Swedish massage uses softer strokes on the bonier and more delicate parts of your body, and stronger strokes where there is thicker muscle coverage. This sensitivity to pressure makes it ideal for relaxation.

More about Swedish Deep Tissue Massage 
What is Swedish massage good for?
Besides the calming benefits, Swedish massage is thought to be good for:

• easing muscular strain by flushing out toxins
• improving circulation by increasing oxygen flow in the blood
• helping to keep ligaments and tendons supple
• stimulating the nervous system
• reducing emotional and physical stress

Are there any medical conditions that may prevent me having this treatment?
As with all treatments, inform your therapist of any medical conditions you may have and tell them if you are – or just think you might be – pregnant.

It is best to avoid heavy meals and alcohol in the hours leading up to your massage.

Sports Massage

Sports Massage is a more targeted, muscle-specific, deep tissue therapy to benefit those engaged in regular physical activity.

It is used to correct imbalances in soft tissue that are caused by repetitive and strenuous physical activity and trauma.  It helps soften and lengthen scar tissue and release muscle tension and pain.  Additionally, advice is given in relation to nutrition, hydration, stretches and exercise to support training and improve posture and flexibility and thus reduce training stress (over-compensation).

Overall, treatment will help prevent injury, enhance performance and significantly aid recovery from DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness), felt 48hrs post event.

It will reduce levels of cortisol (stress hormone) and stimulate the release of oxytocin & serotonin (happy & calming hormones).
