Rehabilitative Sports Massage Therapy
3 months ago207 views
I am a rehabilitative sports therapist. I graduated with ITEC Diplomas in Sports, Deep Tissue, Holistic and Swedish Massage. If I can't be a sportsman I want to work with them. Swedish/Holistic - The most gentle of the four styles I am versed in. This massage is fairly slow and with a light to medium approach, with Swedish being light and Holistic being medium. These two forms vary only slightly in their sequence and the amount of delivered pressure. They are most suitable for those seeking a relaxing massage that mostly aids in the removal of lactic acid (that chemical which makes your muscles fatigued) and myafascial trigger points (or knots). This is highly beneficial for releasing stress and improving movement and sleep, not to mention general comfort. BNS - 45min - R280 Half Body - 30min - R250 Full Body - 1 hr - R350 Deep Tissue - As the name quite adequately implies, it is a massage that focuses on deeper muscles, passing the superficial muscle tissues. This is often for those who have painstaking muscular problems, difficulty sleeping, postural issues, granules (a carbuncle in the muscles if you will, a cluster of knots in a specific area) that have formed over years or even those who simply feel incredibly tense and want a sense of relief. Please be aware that a deep tissue massage is not for the faint hearted. It is supposed to hurt. The form of the massage is quite slow and with intense pressure as I am attempting to break down chemicals and fibres in your body. BNS - 45min - R300 Half Body - 30min - R250 Full Body - 1hr - R400 Sport Massage - As per its name, this massage is reserved, yet not limited to athletes and sportsmen. They are of course the more likely to request it as this is the most rehabilitative form of massage one can have. Sports massage is generally very area specific, so the upper arm (bicep) or upper leg (thigh), generally also focusing on a particularly stressed muscle like the bicep femoris (a specific muscle in the hamstring region) for an extended period of time. The massage is similar to deep tissue, with the differences being the variations in pressure and how much body area is covered. This is usually quite painful as you would be recovering from an injury or a severely stressed or even torn/ruptured muscle. Ultimately though, incredibly helpful on your road to recovery. Area Specific - 30min/45min - R320/R400 For the novices to massage therapy, you may be wondering, BNS? Half body? What’s the difference? Well there is actually a difference, I’m sure BNS is self explanatory. It is only the back, neck and shoulder regions. Nothing more. Half body however, is literally the whole half of your body that you requested to be treated. So on the upper half that would include the back, neck, shoulders, head, arms, hands, fingers and if you’re comfortable with it, your abdomen. The lower half would naturally include the entirety of the leg, less the shin region due to its general lack of tissue, and the feet and toes.
